Njozi Camp is an oasis for those who seek a comfortable, classic camp experience with a true focus on game viewing. The camp not only offers guests a glimpse of big cat research, it also supports the development of Tanzanian wildlife biologists.
The philosophy is to provide comfort for our guests while the staff works hard behind the scenes to allow full flexibility with meal times and service. This includes packing meals to go to the bush. This way, your guide is able to deliver the superior game-viewing experience that we are known for.
We are proud of the community environment our staff provides. The atmosphere is casual and vibrant, yet attentive to all your needs. Our staff likes to share their culture, including amazing food on our Swahili nights and sensational music performances whenever they decide they want to have a jam session.
Critical to your experience, Njozi Camp is flexible to pack meals to go and tailor meal times at camp completely around your game viewing.
Our style demands intimacy in nature, so we limit the camp to just seven guest tents. In January 2015 we debuted our brand new tents! Designed with a classic safari décor, each tent features comfortable beds with high-quality linens and duvets. There is a dressing area with a wardrobe and a sink with running water, plus separate, private shower and toilet areas. Showers are the classic bucket setup found throughout the Serengeti area: staff hoist a bucket of heated water, which is then delivered through a normal shower head in the privacy of your own tent. An inverter system provides 24-hour-a-day electricity for tent lighting.
As of December 2015 we have also added a family tent. Our version is actually two of our normal tents (each with its own bedroom, toilet and shower) that are connected by a living room area. The first family tent is now set up at Njozi Camp and we are taking delivery of a second family tent that can be used for private family groups that need an additional family unit.
The central area of camp includes a mess tent with veranda area for relaxing as well as the essential campfire area. Drinks and laundry are included.
As of December 2015, we have added solar power that will serve all the needs of camp – from the guest tents to the lounge area, even to the kitchen where we have new solar powered refrigerator and freezer capabilities. This is the latest move in our strong environmental stewardship program.
Another fun initiative we do includes recycling plastics, which we donate to an innovative designer who is making furniture from the bottles and selling some of that furniture back to the camp. We also purchase our coffee from Arusha-area local growers who are too small to efficiently sell through wholesalers. Our small-batch coffee earns lots of compliments.
