Kisima Ngeda Camp is located on the eastern shore of Lake Eyasi. The camp has five permanent tents set in the shade of a grove of doum palms, with magnificent views across the soda lake to the 3000 ft escarpment on the other side. To the north are the Ngorongoro Highlands. Scenically, this area is stunning. The tents, each of which is built under a thatched structure, are ingeniously made almost entirely of palm (thatch and poles) and with scrupulous attention to the use of ecologically sound materials. The camp is run by Chris and Nani Schmelling, who have been farming in the area for many years. Having grown up in the area, Chris knows many of the tribe well.
