Each lodge and camp is entirely different, and comes with its own facilities, charm and character.
Legendary Lodge, on the outskirts of Arusha, has one and two bedroom cottages in tropical gardens – perfect for families.
Mwiba Lodge has just ten tented suites, set amongst granite boulders overlooking a rocky gorge on the Arugusinyai River, with large soaking tubs and outdoor rainshowers.
At Mwiba, guests have the chance to fly camp for a night under the stars.
Extremely remote, Mila is a classic camp with six tents (with one for a family), close to the Grumeti River.
Songa Tented Camp has eight tents and one family tent, in the hilly outcrops of Kogatende, overlooking rolling savannah, where the wildebeest migrate north before crossing the Mara River.
Nyasi Migrational Camp, enjoys two locations as it follows the footsteps of the great migration. With eight double tents and a family tent, it’s in a prime position for witnessing millions of wildebeest, zebra and Thomson’s gazelle.
The dining at each of the camps and lodges is entirely unique, but it is always fresh, delicious and plentiful. In some camps you’ll eat at communal tables, whilst in others there’s the chance to picnic in the bush. Breakfasts are usually a selection of pastries and fruit with a cooked option, with lunches and dinners featuring an à la carte menu. And at many of the camps, there’s a spectacular spot for a sundowner.
An entirely unique experience awaits you at each of the lodges and camps. Just travelling between one and the next allows you to witness the diverse landscapes and wildlife of this part of Africa, and is all part of the adventure. Game drives, night drives, bush walks and wildlife tracking, all feature in your itinerary, whilst exploring some of the Serengeti’s most remote wildernesses.
You’ll get under the skin of the continent with experiences such as walking with the hunter gathering Hadazbe Tribe, foraging for food, or spending a morning in a village school. And depending on the season, you’ll get the chance to see a stage of the great migration, from calving to the drama of crossing the Mara River.
This is a family adventure you’ll treasure forever. Many of the lodges and camps accept children of all ages, while others ask for a minimum age. We can advise you on the most suitable camps when you book.
