About Maramboi Tented Camp
This is a unique opportunity to experience and explore the Tarangire and Manyara ecosystem. Maramboi Tented Camp offers permanent camp facilities, with endless vistas of rolling golden grasslands and palm-lined desert between Tarangire and Manyara Lake. A visit to the area is essential for anyone interested in evolution, the origins of mankind, and an explanation of the Rift Valley and Africa's big picture. It is a complete semi-desert experience focusing on safari walks and game drives.
An impressive landscape from the Rift Valley gives the visitor an amazing natural welcome to an area extraordinarily rich in wildlife. The camp offers stunning views of the Manyara National Park, the Rift Valley, and the Ngorongoro Highlands and on clear days, even Oldonyo Lengai - a sacred mountain to the Masai.
In the wet season, the Manyara and Tarangire Pans fill with water which attracts huge flocks of flamingos and other wading birds. The area is also the only place in East Africa where one is often able to see the migration herds of tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra, followed by predators. Although the migrations do occur in other areas of Tanzania, the tree cover prohibits a view of the magnitude that you are able to see at Maramboi Tented Camp because of the exposed nature of the surrounding grassland.
The spacious tents are built on ample wooden decks and feature en-suite facilities, a private verandah and 24 hour 220V electric lighting. Activities include game drives, guided walking safaris, bird watching on the shores of the not-too-distant Lake Manyara, and cultural interaction with Datoga and Masai tribes, whose bomas populate the adjacent land.
