Located deep in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp is in the thick of the region’s tremendous wildlife action. Set in an emerald forest facing an oxbow lagoon of the Grumeti River – a favourite with playful hippos, as well as being the only place in the country where the thumbless, pied colobus monkey is found – the camp consists of only 10 double tents, making for intimate interaction with nature.
During the annual Great Migration, the camp is perfectly positioned to witness the intense drama when thousands of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras cross the Grumeti River, home to Africa’s largest and most powerful Nile crocodile. Beyond the Migration, Serengeti National Park is home to 35 species of plains game, including the Big 5, cheetahs and spotted hyenas, as well as raptors like Rüppell’s and African white-backed vultures. The camp’s hippo guests wallow in the lagoon and you will be able to hear their grunts and bellows from your bed or outdoor shower; you will also be able to get the classic ‘laughing hippo’ and ‘hippo surfacing with water weed’ photographs!
With family-friendly accommodation and secluded honeymoon suites, Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp is ideal for experienced safari hands or adventurous newcomers alike.
