Cozy lounge area is a perfect place to relax before dinner or with an after dinner drinks or takes a dip in the pool after a long day. Activities A melting pot of culture, Kisima Ngeda offers a different experience from what you’ll find on a traditional safari. Here, you can actually get out of the car — you can explore the trails around the lake, canoe along the shore, walk through nearby tribal villages, or just sit and enjoy the beautiful lake views (especially at sunset on top of the rock). While it’s possible to see wildlife, what makes Kisima Ngeda truly special is the opportunity to visit with the local tribes. The waDatoga are a pastoral group like the Maasai, and it’s always interesting to visit the local Blacksmith or a Datoga boma. One can also venture into the bush with the nomadic, hunter-gatherer Hadza Bushmen. Spending a day with the Hadza, hunter-gatherers that speak a historical language of the continent, enables a journey back into the past.
