Nasikia Central Camp
Nasikia Central Camp, we have 12 semi-permanent tents established throughout the year, depending on seasonal reservation requirements. We endeavour to retain the uniqueness and intimacy of the camp, while being directed by the location, wildlife and other factors of responsible tourism.
Each tent is 12m long by 4m wide made from well known heavy duty safari rip-stop canvas and imported from South Africa. The tents are side facing and you are met at the entrance by a patio area with chairs and a table for relaxing when you have a moment. The front of the tents zips fully open, including a layer of mosquito netting and the rip-stop canvas (it also zips closed completely with both layers). Once you step into the tent into the bedroom area, you will see an arrangement of satisfying furniture like a storage chest (with extra blankets), matting, wardrobe with robes, an umbrella and laundry bag, luggage racks, torch/whistle/camp information folder, bedside tables and beds (depending on room configuration). All the fittings depict colours in natural and tones to adhere to the intrinsic area we are located. We offer double, twin, single, triple and family (quad) tents and each bed is fully netted for custom made protection from mosquitoes and insects. The beds are fitted with imported cotton sheets, double pillows, duvets and bed runners for your comfort. The tents have netted windows down each side of the tent which you can fully open only the canvas remaining at all times with the mosquito netting stitched strongly into the actual tent. We have sewn lightweight curtains and hung them along each side of the tent for privacy and also just to watch as they romantically sway in the breeze. Then comes the bathroom area, which can be accessed directly from the bedroom with a separate doorway – once again to fully open or fully close (both layers of netting and canvas) as you prefer. Once inside, there is a bathroom stand with a ceramic wash basin with running water via stylish taps, a mirror, a supply of natural based bathroom products, and linen to suit the number of people expected to occupy the tent. This area also displays a woven grass mat and cloths rack. Also in this area is a ceramic flushing toilet, encased in a wooden frame for stability. The shower area has a 20 litre shower bucket put up on a pulley system as you require for a wash under the incredible African skies.
From the entrance to the bedroom and onto the bathroom, each tent is fitted with an extensive solar lighting system for your convenience.
Please consider careful and responsible use of water and lighting when at the camp, to extend accessibility for all.
There is a magical path of lanterns between the tents and also to our Dining Tent. While we use these kerosene lanterns, you will also observe a mix of solar guide lights and scented beeswax candles to create an enchanting setting to unwind after the day’s adventures. Feel free to take pleasure in our library in the Lounge Tent, enjoy your meals in the Dining Tent, and why not enjoy a sundowner while sitting around the nightly wood fire. For charging electrical equipment, we run a generator in the evenings for the dining and lounge tents (until 10pm only) – please approach the camp manager for assistance.
Our chefs are the creators of fine bush cuisine, using fresh produce from all over Tanzania, to offer a menu that will tantalize.
