Is a seasonal camp and located in the heart of the Serengeti National Park, with access to arguably some of the best game viewing in Africa. The style of camp is simple but with every comfort being taken care of. Seasonal camps have the benefit of being able to move to some of the best game viewing areas of the park and every three to six months we move to a new location. Serengeti Wilderness Camp comprises just ten spacious tents. We provide comfortable beds with quality linens, en suite eco-friendly flushing toilet and bush-shower off an intimate dressing room area. Lighting is by 12-volt (solar powered) with bedside lamps provided. The tents each have a shady verandah, where guests may relax and read quietly or perhaps watch birds and animals.

I spent a night at this camp as part of a multi day/location safari. My tent was nicer than many a hotel room I've stayed in. Double bed, running water, flushing toilet, hot shower and the best wifi I had anywhere in Tanzania. Dinner was very good. Served in the dining tent to myself and my guide (no one else was staying there at the time). There was a well stocked bar should you wish to indulge. It would have been really nice to sit with a drink and enjoy being in the Serengeti, right amongst the wildlife. The only problem was that we arrived as it was getting dark and left early the following morning. So I didn't really have chance to appreciate my surroundings. During the night I was woken many times by noise outside my tent. But for once this was welcome, as animals passed within meters of where I was sleeping. A truly memorable experience. As I stayed here as part of a package, I don't know exactly what it cost me. So I can't really talk about value for money. I would definitely recommend this camp but would suggest that you plan your trip so that you have at least some hours of daylight to relax there in the evening/morning.

We stayed at the Serengeti Wilderness Camp for 2 nights as part of our 7 day safari trip with Joining Safaris. It was incredible! Though it was perhaps less 'luxe' than some of the other places we stayed along the way it was actually one of our favourites. Sleeping in a tent meant that we felt so close to the wildlife and in fact we had a group of zebras literally walk through the camp just after dinner one night! Another aspect that made it so great were the warm and friendly staff. We really enjoyed chatting with them and it added to the personalised service we received (we were woken up each morning with hot coffee in bed!). The food was also really delicious and I'm amazed at the quality literally in the middle of the bush. Thankyou so much Serengeti Wilderness Camp- we loved our time with you!

This camp is awesome!! Its beautiful, rustic, but has all the modern amenities. This camp is literally in the wilderness and thats what makes it so special. You can sit in the living room or by the fire at night and watch animals walk by hyenas, buffalo, etc. The food here was the best we had on our safari, the coriander chicken and celery soup were great! It was so wonderful and special to sleep in our glamping tent and hear animals outside and just know your in the middle of the Serengeti all while feeling extremely at home and comfortable. They do have bucket showers which really made the experience really unique. Hot water too :) I was so sad having to leave this place and I did not feel this way after leaving any other camp on my 3 night safari. The staff is super nice, friendly, and helpful. They walk you to and from your tent at night and have a security person at all times. Definately stay here for midrange accomodation in Serengeti, this place is a gem!

We wanted a real wilderness experience, and that is exactly what we got. Beautiful tented accomodation with the wilder beast, hyenas and buffalo brushing past the tents at night. Eco-friendly living and the most amazing team of staff. The game drives for the migration where out of this world, displaying the reality of the Serengeti. The meals suited where we were and were plentiful and fresh. The setup included a social area to relax and take in the amazement of where we where. We are definitely returning, highly recommended

CAMP: This tented camp is the most remote one we stayed in during our north circuit safari. There is an emphasis on using less (water, electricity, etc) and being as environmentally friendly as possible. This is a migrating camp that moves south when the wildebeest migration does. Being in the north of Serengeti means it's tougher to bring food and water into the camp than those located closer to the park's south entrance. They have a lounge tent with a charging station, wi-fi, boardgames, and books to choose from. A well stocked bar is available as well, with alcohol options included in the stay and some available for an extra charge. I enjoyed looking through their African bird and animal books and playing Jenga, while my camera battery and phone had a chance to charge. The wifi and electricity are not available the whole time - the generators are turned off for the night and turned back on again in the morning. TENT: Outside the tent entrance are two chairs and a table for enjoying the outdoors. The enclosed portion of the tent includes a bed, nightstand, chests with extra sheets and blankets, and a hanging shelf unit with a place to hang clothes. The bathroom portion, including a shower, flushing toilet, and a sink vanity, are not in the tent enclosed zipped up part so watch for bugs! Showers can be requested and we had no issues with having hot water for them. Shampoo/shower gel is provided in the shower. No charging outlets in the rooms. Lights are solar powered, gathering energy during the day. A flashlight is in the room for use at night. FOOD: Dinner is served at 7:30 in the evening, with the staff going around and adding portions to your plate - as much or as little as you'd like. Similar to other camps, it includes a soup and roll, salad, and entree (vegetable, meat, rice or other vegetables). Breakfast is served buffel style - not a huge spread but it is enough! It includes cereals and milk, pancakes, sausage or bacon, toast, and various spreads on the tables. Eggs available made to order. SUMMARY: I loved staying at this camp - staff was very friendly and made an attempt to get to know the group. I enjoyed the remote location and listening to the animals running around the camp at night.

We (family 2 adults + 3 teenaged daughters) stayed at the tent camp for 2 nights during our safari in Serengeti. This is the perfect way to expereince Serengeti. The tents were very clean, had comfy beds with mosquito nets, all tents had private showers and toilets. It was amasing to sit in front of the open fire (bush television) after dinner and listen to all the animals just around the corner. Our guide told us the different sounds. Dinner and breakfast was really good in the restaurant tent and safety/guarding during night felt very safe.We highly recommend to stay at a tent camp during your safari!!

Serengeti is all about game drives. Serengeti Wilderness Camp is in the heart of Seronera. Friendly welcome on arrival. Meals are served at main tent. Guests tents offer everything one needs from running water and electricity (not enough for a hair dryer) to comfortable bed with mosquito net. After dark there is a security guard on duty because the camp is not fenced in and game comes close to the tents. Friendly and helpful staff.

This camp is situated pretty remote in the heart of the Serengeti. In the middle of the savanna. It’s just you, the tent, and the animals. That sounds maybe dangerous but as a matter of fact it is not at all. Because the people who are managing this camp know what they are doing. The tents look very simple from the outside but they are staffed in a very tasteful manner. They offer quite some standard in terms of sanitary bad, bed and so on that we just did not expect at all. Remarkable. Our group has got simple and clear directions of how to behave in the camp so that life is easy, comfortable and not dangerous. At night for instance you can call with your torch light for a Massai guard to guide you to another tent if you like. The animals can come very close at night. They really can stand right in front of your tent. But if you don’t make any silly mistake - nothing is going to happen. Because it just happens that they live in this region whether it’s lions, buffalos, antelopes or whatever.

We had the most fantastic stay at the Serengeti Wilderness Camp. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff, from the coffee delivered to our tent with the wakeup call and water warmed to perfect temperature for the shower. The food was great and the tents were very comfortable and spotless.

My favourite! I have stayed at more expensive and luxurious camps but I really love this place for a number of reasons. At the time of year I go to the Serengeti, my group are often the only guests in camp. I never want to leave and am always looking for good reasons to book in for more days. The staff in camp are always amazing, nothing is too much trouble and you never see them without a smile. One of my group discovered a tick in her leg one night and she was very worried about it. The staff calmed her down and removed the tick with no fuss. They are a very caring group of guys. The quite varied dietary requirements of my groups are very well catered for. I particularly appreciate the effort when you consider the kitchen facilities available. We had a picnic lunch one day, complete with tables, chairs, crockery and glassware. It was a lovely change from a lunchbox and wonderful surprise. A number of people have told me that the beds at Wilderness are the most comfortable of all during our 18 day trip. The bathrooms are great and there is plenty of water in a bucket shower to wash your hair. Our timing was perfect on the last visit – the migration was getting very close to us on our third night, on our last night the camp was surrounded by the noisy creatures. What a way to end our stay!
