Semi-permanent tented camp
Mid-rangeOverall good quality. This is a wide category, but you can expect a comfortable stay.
This simple no-frills camp offers an authentic taste of the bush. The price is kept reasonable in comparison to most other Serengeti tented camps by being slightly larger, however it’s not available to all operators and you get your own vehicle, so there is exclusivity here too.
Nestled into a glade of acacia trees, this understated and unpretentious camp fits perfectly for a safari in great bush landscape in a quiet corner of Seronera, central Serengeti. The local wildlife often passes through the camp. Whilst it is often busy in this area, Central Serengeti is a good wildlife spot all year, and it’s generally great for big cats. It can also be used as a base to head further north or west – since you have your own vehicle and driver you can decide.
We are one of the limited number of safari operators who can use this camp. We know and respect the owners, whose ethos of offering guests simple yet comfortable accommodation for a fair price, whilst also caring for their staff and local community, sits well with us.
The mess tent has a small seating area and a bar area which is the social hub of the camp and a good meeting spot to share your tales with other travellers. The dining room is set to one side, offering simple tasty meals. There are charging points here too.
Times to Go
Being in central Serengeti, the wildlife tends to be good here most of the year. Big cats are often seen here, especially July to October. Some of the migration usually passes through the area in about May-June and November-December, though there are better bets if the migration is your focus. The quietest months are April to May (the rainiest times), and the rest of the year there can be high traffic here, but it’s still consistently good wildlife viewing.
