Overview of Mbono Tented Camp

Mbono Tented Camp nestles on the banks of the Mbono River, and with only six tented suites, you are assured an intimate and exclusive safari experience. This luxury tented camp is located in a private concession close to the Serengeti National Park, allowing you to experience the best of both worlds – access to one of East Africa’s most famous wilderness areas and exclusive access to the concession so you can avoid the crowds. Each group has the luxury and convenience of their own private safari vehicle, and is accompanied on game drives by a dedicated and knowledgeable ranger.

The Serengeti is known for its abundant game, including all the apex predators and the Big 5. It is also the landscape that hosts a large portion of the annual Wildebeest Migration – one of nature’s greatest spectacles. Tented suites are spacious, fitted with romantically-draped beds, private balcony with views of the riverine vegetation and generous en-suite bathrooms. Mbono Tented Camp offers the classic safari experience with extra touches, like high quality bed linen, lush bathroom amenities and romantic private dinners under the stars. Perfect for couples, Mbono is also great for intimate family getaways and can be booked on exclusive-use basis.
