Ndarakwai Ranch features 15 tents under thatch with private verandahs and en suite bathrooms. The authentic charm of the camp extends to the staff with an attention to detail and service. The chef makes use of the extensive vegetable garden for the delicious home-style cuisine. In the evening join other guests around the camp fire for a nightcap and to hear about the history and sustainability of the camp.
A percentage of every guest’s overnight charge goes to The Kilimanjaro Conservancy, a locally registered non-profit organization, which undertakes community anti-poaching activities on and around Ndarakwai, supports local schools, and generally promotes any initiative to reduce human/wildlife conflict.
You can participate in guided full or half-day walks, longer hikes, day and night game drives, or just relax at the camp.
The tree house is a favorite destination where, during the dry seasons, guests are likely to gaze down at a herd of elephants at the waterhole.
A wide variety of activities are offered, including meeting and walking with Ranch game scouts, who protect the wildlife. (Please request information on voluntourism opportunities).
