Are you looking for an adventure on your travels in Tanzania?
Are you interested in sustainable travel that protects the environment and serves the community, far away from cliché touristic experiences?
In that case Ngerengere River Eco Camp is the perfect place for you! Bungalows, baboons, beautiful landscapes, gardening, vising local people, activities in various workshops, trips to
surrounding National Parks, Tanzanian food, and much more.
We invite single travelers, couples and families to our beautiful Eco Camp. Since some years we also receive many groups of youths, but also university groups up to 35 people from all over the world.
Surrounded by Tanzanian bush and situated at the picturesque Ngerengere River, Eco Camp is the perfect destination for all age groups dreaming of experiencing Tanzanian life (75% of Tanzanians live in rural areas). Eco Camp is a great place for visitors to relax in a very quite and 100% natural environment.
Our camp is unique: all houses are built entirely of natural materials. Our houses are of diffrent sizes. You may like to use a comfortable single or double bed - of course all including mosquito nets. Each house also has a private bathroom. Our Eco Camp Msonge Hostel can even accommodate up to eight people. Since 2018 we provide a special family house, which includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a small living room. For camping lovers, we have plenty of space for tents. Apart from the houses, we have a big dining hall, a kitchen and a great fire camp area.
Enjoy our 100% organic and freshly cooked food! You will get three typical Tanzanian meals per day. Our food is also suitable for vegetarian guests. We use fresh fruits and vegetables from our own garden whenever possible. Additionally, barbecue at the campfire is available.
Firstly, you have the chance to explore the natural environment with baboons, galagos, beautiful birds, chameleons and other animals. Refresh your mind while sitting on the stones of Ngerengere River.
Secondly, we offer a unique cultural tourism experience. Through our extensive social network in the area we can provide guests with the chance to learn and experience much about the culture of Lukwambe´s people. You can get to know the diffrent lifestyles of the villagers through direct meetings and exchanges. Many of our guests find it also very interesting to visit a Masai family nearby.
Thirdly, tourists have the chance to get to know our social projects in Lukwambe. In cooperation with the villagers, we improve conditions in Lukwambe through diffrent projects regarding education, health care, water quality and reforestation.
Fourthly, while you stay at Eco Camp you will have the opportunity to visit many fantastic places nearby. Our Eco Camp is close to the highway to Mikumi National Park which is located in the north of Selous - Africa´s biggest Game Reserve today! We can organize daytrips or overnights for you to Mikumi at a reasonable price. We recommend this National Park because of a big variety of animals live there such as zebras, impala, giraffes, wildebeest, lions, buffalo, elephants, hippos, antelopes, monkeys and crocodiles.
But Mikumi is still not as crowded with tourists cars as many National Park in the Northern Zone. Apart from Mikumi, we can arrange safaris to Ruaha National Park, Udzungwa Mountains National Park and Saadani National Park.
For hiking fans we organize trips to the Uluguru Mountains in Morogoro.
The Uluguru Mountains are 2,600 meters high and the vegetation is very variable, ranging from dry lowland to diffrent kinds of forests and beautiful water falls! We can organize a daytrip or if you aim to reach the top of the Mountains, it is also possible to do some camping in the Mountains.
Fifthly, we offer interesting workshops for our guests at Eco Camp and in Lukwambe,
which you can check here.
The costs for accomodation, food, airport pickups and trips depend on the number of guests and the lenght of your stay. You are welcome to make a price inquiry. We will prepare a package for you which is tailored to your wishes.
Phones can be charged and lights be used thanks to our solar power. We also have internet access! Even though it is not very stable, receiving and sending messages is possible in certain areas.
We offer pickups from the airport in Dar es Salaam or from the ferry coming from Zanizibar to Dar es Salaam as well. Depending on your preference, we will bring you with our private Eco Camp car, or an Eco Camp staff member will pick you up and you can both take public transport.
