Kiota Camp

If you want to stay in a small tented camp where home comforts and good service are assured and the game viewing is good year round, Kiota should be on your list. The Seronera Valley is one of the most popular areas of the central Serengeti for good reason …. the amazing wildlife.

Kiota Camp is in a prime location in central Serengeti. It’s quite a small, simple and authentic tented camp, which offers really good service.

Renowned for its prime game viewing opportunities, this vast central valley is teaming with wildlife both on the river bed and on the golden grasslands. The area is well known for its healthy populations of big cats, and for the wildebeest migration which passes through this region twice yearly, around May-June and November-December.

Kiota has a sister camp, Chaka Camp which is a mobile camp that moves twice yearly to stay close to the migration, so these two camps combine really well.

Times to Go

The best times to visit are from June to November and from January to March. April to May are the long rains here so very wet, but also very quiet, cheaper, and the game is still around!

Kiota Camp rooms

A tented camp comprising of 10 double tents and a family tent.

They all have en-suite shower rooms and private shady verandas and are well-spaced for seclusion.

All are comfortable and spacious, furnished with locally-crafted furniture and have electric bedside lamps and power points.

Twiga the giraffe likes this because…

“Solar panels provide the camp’s electricity (with generator back-up), plastic and tins are recycled, and local produce is bought when possible. Also, the furniture is nearly all locally-crafted.”

And don’t forget … for every booking we get, Tanzania Specialists plants trees in deforested areas of Africa through The Travel Forest, and we back The Tribes Foundation’s conservation and social projects.
