Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp

The perfect vantage point for one of the most famous crossing points of the Great Migration

At Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp, the vibrant and rejuvenating haven charms all guests with its warm welcome and dramatic setting. With ample resident game, the Camp is also the perfect vantage point for one of the most famous crossing points of the Great Migration. Relax right on the water’s edge and unwind to the playful frolics of our resident family of hippo. Just make sure you don’t try to take a walk on that extra green patch of lawn – it’s really a floating garden of water cabbage that is home to some of Africa’s biggest crocodiles!

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.
