Kubu Kubu Tented Camp

Built in 2016, this stylish camp offers very comfortable accommodation in a great location in central Serengeti. Game viewing is great all year round, and spectacular at migration time. And the swimming pool is a welcome feature after a long, hot game drive.

If you’re looking to spend three nights on safari and get plenty of variety in the areas you see, without travelling too many miles, Kubu Kubu is definitely a camp to consider. The central Serengeti is a prime game location throughout the year – even if you miss the migration the whole area has a great resident mammal and bird population, so you’re unlikely to be disappointed. The camp is also a good base from which to explore the further reaches of the Grumeti River, the Maasai kopjes and the Museum of Olduvai Gorge.

When not out on game drives you can relax in your spacious, thatched stilted tent, cool off in the infinity swimming pool or just enjoy the panoramic plains views, spotting wildlife from the comfort of your balcony – or, indeed, from the pool.

Times to Go

With its wealth of resident game, this is an all-year round destination. Peak time is June to October, with the migration thundering through and the Grumeti River crossings taking place in June/July. But whenever you are here you will have a wonderful wildlife experience, even in the rainier season from March to May.

Kubu Kubu Tented Camp rooms

The 25 en-suite rooms are large and airy and built on wooden stilts with a balcony at the front.

The canvas walls are stretched between wooden beams and the roof is thatched.

Inside, the décor is simple but elegant, with contemporary furniture, a king-size or two single beds, pale furnishings and stripped wood floors.

The views from the tents are stunning.

The large bathrooms have tiled walls, modern white ceramic fittings, flushing loos and stone-walled al-fresco showers.

There is also a family tent comprising two interconnected rooms, each with en-suite bathroom complete with freestanding bathtub and outside shower.

Twiga the giraffe likes this because…

“The camp’s owners, Tanganyika Wilderness, run a foundation to improve the living condition of the local population through education and medical facilities.”

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.
