My stay, with 16 people from Renner Safaris (photographic), was wonderful. Amazing camp with lovely tents. Oh my - outdoor shower, double sinks, large freestanding tub to soak The food was fabulous each meal and the service was attentive without being intrusive. Appetizers each night at cocktail hour (all inclusive beer and wine). Beds were so comfy! Can't give it...

We spent 2 nights in Masek Tented Camp during our 11 day safari in Tanzania. The tents here are AMAZING. So luxurious, huge comfortable bed and an awesome outdoor shower (at night you can shower and see the milky way). The food was great and the staff took great care of us. I highly recommend checking this place out next...

We drove about four hours to get there with the last hour off road which was quite an adventure. The rooms are spacious with canopy beds with mosquito nets and the outdoor fully enclosed shower was great. We saw all the animals including the migration and loads of baby animals. The service is very good and the team are all...

The tents and food are very good. The experience is made truly exceptional by the scenery (breakfast with a view of the lake watching a hippo and giraffes) and staff. The staff is among the kindest and most professional I have ever met. They were especially kind and protective to the small children accompanying us.

This is a "permanent" tented camp, meaning the tents have wood floors and the overall accommodations and service are higher than in a standard tented camp. The buffet meals are extensive and tasty. The bar is well stocked. The staff is attentive and cheerful. And, the views from the lodge deck are incomparable. Watch out for the zebras, hippos and...

We stayed at the Masek Tented Camp for 3 nights as part of a tour of the national parks of Northern Tanzania. It's an amazing location, perched on a hillside over the lake and surrounded by bush which is part of the greater Serengeti eco-system. Overall service and quality of facilities is good rather than absolutely first class, but the...
