Masek tented is within spitting distance of Lake Masek. Staff were friendly and efficient. You are completely at one with nature here and so no walking around the lodge without a Masai warrior to accompany you. The rooms were luxurious and spacious. The "moonshower" was a definite must try and I loved that feel of showering under the stars. The...

Incredible tent, comfortable beds, shower to die for, wonderful staff, great afternoon cookie treats, beautiful setting, and I could (and have) go on and on and on. When we arrived for our first day, we were greeted with mango juice, delicious cookies, and wet hand towels. All of our luggage was delivered to our tent, and we were thrilled to...

Located few meters away from lake Masek at the official borders of Serengeti , it gives you a real African wilderness experience Separated tents ( around 20 ) each with a special name that required a scout to reach it in and out at night only as there are no fences to stop the wild animals from roaming in.

From our arrival to our departure 3 days later this place was filled with delicious and happy memories. Our waitresses, Joy and Felicia were always checking on us and making sure all of our needs were met. Their smiles lit up the room. The tents were wonderfully comfortable with great beds and a wonderful view of the lake. Our Massai...

First time in a tented camp and we very much enjoyed the experience. Spent two nights while viewing the migration around Ndutu. Outdoor shower was great, a real flush toilet, very comfortable bed, spacious accommodation. The front screened veranda was great for early morning coffee (yes, they bring coffee if you ask). Nice view of Lake Masek. Very peaceful. The...

A real adventure in a most beautiful place. The tents are great though you can't get from one place to another without a massai warrior accompanying you. The tents are very comfortable and beautiful. The stuff is very friendly and the food is very good

This is the second stay for me at Lake Masek, staying three nights. . It's a wonderful place to rest and relax after a long day game driving. The tents are very large, beautifully furnished, comfortable beds, and I love the bathroom which has an outdoor shower. Anyone staying there should treat themselves to an outdoor shower, just fabulous. The...

Great tented camp overlooking Lake Masek. The tents were very comfortable. We had plenty of hot water and enjoyed the screened deck. We were there when the migration was coming through and there were wildebeest and zebra everywhere!!! The food was good, served buffet style. The box lunches were not the best, but did the job for full day game...
