The first night a leopard strolled by the tent next to ours; the next night a lion passed by a tent a short distance away. Guards armed with bows and arrows ensured our safety. Like our stay at another tent camp, this was another great experience. Very attentive staff; complimentary wine at the camp fire and the best food we... More

The Serengeti is undoubtedly the best safari destination in Tanzania, a country with lots of great safari destinations. But actually to camp in the wild, to hear large animals calling and moving about in the night, to eat under the stars ... well, we could not imagine a better safari experience! And not only is there proximity to exciting wildlife... More

This is a great place to be in the middle of the Serengeti. it's good access for several days of driving. The beds are comfortable, service impeccable, food great and the temperature of the solar showers just perfect. It was fun to sit around the fire at night and then go to bed and hear lions and zebras. Recommend!

Absolutely gorgeous view from any place you stand. A great way to experience the Serengeti and become one with nature and all the animals roaming around the campsite. Staff were very friendly and accommodating to every needs. Couldn't fault the three course meals we were given every night within comfort dining surroundings. Loved, loved, LOVED the experience!!!

Fabulous location close to the Mara river and still thousands and thousands of wildebeest crossing even in mid September. Plenty of hot water for showers and the chef was quite amazing under the circumstances. A really great experience in the heart of the Serengeti.

As long as you remember this a mobile camp and not a fixed luxury camp you will be fine. The staff was very accommodating and the tent was very clean. The shower is a bucket shower and you are limited to one 20 L shower per day per person. There wasn't a large selection of food but again this is... More

There is a reason why this camp is seasonal, so you can track the animals more easily as the animals don't have a fixed route every year. Being seasonal, the camp has tried their best to be versatile and yet not compromising guests' convenience. The bush shower, at first sounded a bit intimidating, was actually quite enough for washing our... More

We had a great time at this camp, it is small and intimate, and waking up in your tent surrounded by wildebeest grazing, hearing heyenas and lions in the background was an experience like no other.

We visited the northern part of Serengeti last year and stayed at the Serengeti North Wilderness Camp for two memorable nights at that time. We decided to stay a little longer this time, for three nights, and once more were regaled from the moment of our arrival. This is a non-permanent camp, so we were not at the same place... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
