Nestled among tall evergreen trees on the water’s edge, Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp offers a wild and remote experience in the thick of the animal action. Set on the banks of an oxbow lake formed by the Grumeti River, the Camp provides the perfect vantage point to enjoy the unique sight of the vast masses of the Great Migration making their dramatic river crossing. Dense riverside thickets hide a multitude of secrets and delights, from the acrobatic antics of colobus monkeys to the brilliant plumage of dozens of bird species.
Step into a blaze of colour in one of only ten whimsical tents tucked under shady palm frond roofs. Bright, vibrant interiors welcome and invigorate. Surprises await at every step, from the beaded curtains in the guest areas to the intricate mosaic surfaces of the table tops. Everyday objects acquire a sense of the unusual, with even the spacious outdoor shower shaded from the sun and stars by only a wrought iron dome. Night time becomes an adventure, as hippo call to one another while you lie in the comfort of your king size bed.
Riotous colors spread through the guest areas, where bright decks open onto the riverfront. Intimate spaces with orange, yellow and green cushions refresh and renew and guests watch the river inhabitants from the vantage point of the lodge pool. As night descends, camp buildings and paths are magically lit by flaming torches and lamps.
Tempting scents from the boma entice and attract. Traditional fires, jikos and outdoor ovens produce mouth-watering aromas and meals, and the sounds of the African night provide a backdrop to tales of the day’s adventures.
