Hunting Areas & Camps

Lake Natron South Game Control Area, northern Tanzania.

Located north of Arusha in the famous, tsetse fly-free Maasai Steppe, this 1,500 sq km (370,660 acres) area is bordered on the west by the famous Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and to the north and east by Kenya and Lake Natron, a soda lake teeming with flamingos and other bird life. TWC runs two permanent luxury camps and two adventure fly camps within our Lake Natron South concession.

The semi-permanent Kiserian adventure camp offers terrific views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and plentiful hunting and viewing opportunities for a majority of East African plains game including Grant’s and Thompson’s Gazelles, and the highly sought-after Gerenuk and Lesser Kudu.

Within the Natron South GCA is Mt. Kitumbeine, a flat-topped formation that towers 9,200 ft above the Acacia studded grasslands. The permanent Kitumbeine luxury base camp is situated at the foot of this grand mountain and offers spectacular views of the Great Rift Valley below and Oldonyo Lengai, the Maasai people’s “Mountain of God,” the only active volcano in East Africa. Fringe-eared Oryx and other bountiful plains game species thrive on the grasslands below. The Lengai permanent camp is based on the plains near the foot of Oldonyo Lengai.

Mt. Kitumbeine offers the adventure-seeker a truly unique hunting opportunity to hunt its dense old-growth forest preserve for mountain buffalo and exceptionally large leopard. TWC contracts the help of the local Maasai people to erect a full service adventure fly camp just below the summit of Kitumbeine’s peak. Transportation to the fly camp is by 4x4 safari cruisers, but guests must be in good physical condition to hunt the mountain itself, as there is no vehicle access past the fly camp and all hunting is done on foot.

Guests of TWC are often exposed to the historic culture of the area with visits to local Maasai villages. The interaction between the native people, their livestock, and the wildlife of this land is closely safe-guarded by TWC and their partner in conservation, Tembo Foundation Ltd.

TWC also operates photographic and adventure safaris in their Lake Natron South area and nearby northern parks. For more information about these exciting safari opportunities for the hunter and non-hunter alike, please visit our Photographic Safaris section.
