Ndarakwai Camp is a permanent tented lodge on Ndarakwai ranch, West Kilimanjaro.

With views of both Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru, Ndarakwai Camp is nestled in a lush forest of towering fig, podo, and yellow-barked acacias that line the seasonal Ngare Nairobi River.

Guests gather around a campfire at dusk for snacks and sundowners. Welcome the African night, replete with elephants that ghost through the camp and the haunting cries of bush babies in the trees.

Candlelight and kerosene lanterns provide romantic evening light. The small amount of electricity used is solar generated. Close attention is paid to impact on neighboring communities.

Rooms & Suites:

There are eight spacious tents with thatched roofs available at Ndarakwai Camp, en suite bathrooms, and a large separate dining area. Hot showers are provided at any time of day, but water impact is kept low through collecting rainwater and using compost toilets. Water is heated in fuel-efficient boilers.

Food & Wine:

Meals are prepared on propane stoves and insulated clay ovens.


Ndarakwai Camp activities include very good wildlife viewing - particularly elephant, lesser kudu, gerenuk - over 63 species of mammals. And with more than 340 species of bird, it's a birder's paradise. Guests can participate in guided full or half-day walks, longer hikes, day and night game drives, or just relax at the camp. A wide variety cultural activities are offered, including meeting and walking with Ranch game scouts, who protect the wildlife; or visiting local Maasai villages.
