Ideally located between the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the southern Serengeti, the Lake Masek Tented Camp in Tanzania offers year-round game viewing of the Big 5, and access to the annual Wildebeest Migration from roughly December to April each year. This eco-friendly camp is set on the edge of Lake Masek and enjoys panoramic views over the water and distant mountain peaks. The tented suites are basic but spacious, and have been built on wooden platforms, with all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay including a stand-alone bathtub and a romantic outdoor shower.

The landscape consists mostly of short grass plains that allow for easy game viewing and attract the annual migration of wildebeest after the first spring rains. It is here where the mega herds congregate to calve, which attracts a large numbers of cheetah, leopard, lion and hyena to the area. After the ‘green’ months, big cat sightings are rarer but there is a good chance of spotting elephant, smaller cats, flamingos and plenty of other birdlife that are attracted by the lake. In addition to game drives, optional extra visits to archaeological sites and hot-air ballooning can be arranged.

Located in the southern Serengeti overlooking the Ndutu plains this is the perfect location to experience the wildebeest calving season. Enjoy lovely views of Lake Masek while watching the sunset over the Ndutu plains.

Standard Tent

Each of Lake Masek's en suite rooms are built on a raised wood platform and features their own private terrace from which guests can enjoy armchair safaris as wildlife graze and wander through the wilderness surrounding the lodge. Days on safari are perfectly capped off with a refreshing outdoor shower by the light of stars.

Family Tent

The family tent comprises two interconnected rooms with a shared bathroom and private porch.


The camp consists of 20 tented suites, each set on a raised wooden platform with a full en suite bathroom equipped with twin basins, a free-standing bathtub, and outdoor shower. Suites all have a private veranda with outdoor furnishings, and feature king-sized, twin or triple beds. At the main camp is a comfortable lounge, library, dining area and wooden viewing deck overlooking Lake Masek. The camp has Internet access and is solar-powered but does not have credit-card facilities.


All meals are catered for at the lodge and are taken in the dining area or on the viewing deck. Enjoy the buffet and have the option of inviting your safari guide to dine with you in the evenings – a great opportunity to learn more about wildlife and the environment as well as the local Maasai culture. Lunches are packed at breakfast time for your day out on safari – you can choose from a range of fruits, snacks, biscuits, cakes and sandwiches. Romantic private breakfasts in the wild can be arranged, as well as sundowners and cocktails in a secluded area of the park.
