Lake Eyasi Tanzania:

Welcome to Lake Eyasi, a stunning, off-the-beaten-path destination in Tanzania. Nestled in the Great Rift Valley, this serene lake offers a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of tourist hotspots. For guests at Mawe Lodges, Lake Eyasi is not just a destination; it’s an experience steeped in cultural richness and natural beauty.

Discover the Tranquility of Lake Eyasi:

Lake Eyasi’s landscape is a breathtaking canvas of blues and greens, surrounded by the rugged terrain of the Rift Valley. Its alkaline waters attract a diverse range of birdlife, making it a paradise for birdwatchers. The lake’s serene environment is perfect for those seeking peace and a deep connection with nature.

Cultural Immersion with the Hadzabe and Datoga Tribes:

One of the most unique aspects of Lake Eyasi is the opportunity to interact with the indigenous Hadzabe and Datoga tribes. These communities maintain a traditional way of life, offering visitors a glimpse into their hunter-gatherer and pastoralist lifestyles. At Mawe Lodges, we organize respectful cultural visits, ensuring a genuine and enriching experience for guests and locals. Excursions commence from our Karatu Tented Lodge or Baobab Camp.

Wildlife and Birdwatching Adventures:

While Lake Eyasi may not boast the big game found in nearby national parks, it offers an array of bird species, including flamingos, pelicans, and storks. The surrounding bush is also home to smaller mammals, providing a different wildlife viewing experience. Mawe Lodges arranges guided walks and birdwatching excursions, allowing guests to explore this diverse ecosystem.


Lake Eyasi is more than just a destination; it’s a journey into the heart of Tanzania’s natural and cultural splendor. At Mawe Lodges, we are committed to making your visit a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Whether you’re seeking adventure, relaxation, or cultural immersion, Lake Eyasi is the perfect getaway.
