Overview of Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp

Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp lies at the heart of the Serengeti National Park, providing easy access to the prime wildlife spots of Lobo, the Western Corridor of the Grumeti River, the southern grass plains and the Seronera Valley. Scenically located in a glade guarded by 3 million year old granite towers, Mbuzi Mawe makes maximum use of its unique wilderness location – along one of the main annual wildebeest migration corridors, where you can enjoy a ringside seat to one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth.

The camp offers game drives, ranger-led bush walks, hot-air balloon rides and even ornithology talks, while the delightful al fresco breakfasts, lantern-lit bush dinners, campfire roasts and traditional Ikoma dance displays add a unique and special touch to a safari at Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp. Ideal for families, Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp can provide adjacent tents for families, extra beds and cots, as well as baby sitting, high chairs and fun educational activities to keep the youngsters entertained.
