overview

Like the Maasai people and their jangling-belled cattle, Nduara Loliondo has a distinctly nomadic character: it is a tented camp that changes location every six months. From June to November, it perches on a high northern ridge overlooking a tree-studded valley; between December and May it moves to the vast southern plains and sets up below an endless dome of sky.

The jaw-dropping locations have been chosen for both their views and their proximity to the drama of the Great Migration. And since both settings lie in a concession outside the Serengeti National Park, a wide range of extra experiences are available. Apart from morning and afternoon game drives, guests at Nduara Loliondo also enjoy spot-lit night drives, walking safaris with Maasai guides and visits to local herders' villages for a taste of their pastoral way of life. Nduara Loliondo has been working with the Maasai for more than 20 years and has developed a sustained and deep partnership with them.

Nduara Loliondo is the perfect place to both encounter the wildlife of the Serengeti and gain personal insight into a unique way of life. Suitable for an intrepid family getaway or an unusual honeymoon adventure, this camp provides a hands-on experience of a true slice of Africa.

Facilities

In keeping with the Maasai philosophy of living close to the land and respecting nature, Nduara Loliondo’s unique ‘off the grid’ mobile set up consists of two spectacular domed yurts that house the communal living areas, as well as the stand-up tented accommodation. The lounge and library are strewn with plump cushions in bright textiles and fluffy sheepskins to sink into.

Dining

Despite its two remote locations, Nduara Loliondo offers meals of an exceptional standard and places an emphasis on Pan-African cuisine prepared with fresh ingredients and flair. Breakfast is a hearty affair and features a delicious continental buffet selection as well as a cooked option. Lunches are either served in the dining yurtor wherever you happen to be at the time - brunches and picnic lunches often make delightful conclusions to your game drives. In the evenings, dinner begins with sundowners on an outcrop with a wonderful vista and stories in the lounge before you are invited to the dining tent to indulge in a fabulous 3-course meal.

Meru-Style Tent

The six spacious stand-up tents are strategically placed to maximise both privacy and the marvellous views. Consisting of an open-plan bedroom and lounge area furnished in a colourfully eclectic style, the tents have an en suite bathroom featuring an eco-flush, ‘short drop’ toilet, hand basins and a unique bucket shower. They are also designed to be as cool as possible during the day and are furnished in a comfortable assortment of camping furniture in bright textiles, soft sheepskin and burnished leather.

"This is a very unique and different tented camp – not like anything else I have experienced before - giving you a feel of the nomadic culture. Just like the Masai, the camp is nomadic; every 6 months, the camp is packed up and moved to a game rich area. We had a brilliant guide during our stay & our favourite time of the day was telling stories around the camp fire."
