Hemingway's Camp


... is located in the West Kilimanjaro area of Northeast Tanzania.

First established around 2002, this was the pioneering camp into this relatively young safari area. For many years it was the only camp out here and sold itself on being a remote, exclusive and unusual safari location.

But West Kilimanjaro is a difficult sell ... the vast majority of visitors to this part of the world find more than enough to keep themselves busy in the more famous parks to the west of here.

Hemingway's Camp closed for business in 2009, partly because of the arrival of other camps into the area, but mainly due to low occupancies being exacerbated by the recession. So far as we are aware there are no plans to re-open in the near future.

Refer to Shumata Camp and Kambi ya Tembo as alternatives in this area.

Those few people who do visit this West Kilimanjaro area often do so in combination with Mount Kilimanjaro treks. Other little-visited attractions in this region include Arusha National Park safari, Mkomazi safari and Usambara Mountains safari.

Many people visiting Tanzania Northeast also combine with the adjacent Tanzania North region, including Serengeti safari, Ngorongoro safari, Tarangire safari and Lake Manyara safari.

Some visitors also combine with options further afield including Ruaha safari and Selous safari to the south of the country, Katavi safari and Mahale Mountains chimpanzee safari out west, Maasai Mara safari over the border in Kenya and Virunga Mountains gorilla safari over in Rwanda.

These mainland areas are also commonly combined with nights down on the Tanzania Coast, especially on Zanzibar Island, Pemba Island, Mafia Island or Fanjove Island, usually in trips of 10 to 21 nights.
