Overview

Serengeti Kati Kati is a mobile tented camp strategically located in the Seronera region of Tanzania, providing an excellent central base from which to explore the Serengeti National Park. The camp is surrounded by open grasslands and has a genuine wilderness feel, appealing to those looking for an authentic safari experience in a secluded location. This part of the Serengeti offers solid year-round game-viewing and particularly good opportunities for spotting lion, leopard and cheetahs.

Activities are centred on the spectacular game-viewing and the birdlife is also superb, with more than 500 species from enormous ostriches to tiny honey birds. As with other camps in this part of the Serengeti, vehicle safaris are limited to daytime only and walking safaris are not permitted. Due to the year-round nature-viewing opportunities in the Seronera and the fact that the camp is open to vehicles from all safari companies, it can become very busy. However, Kati Kati is located a good distance away from central areas and nothing can really detract from the world-class abundance of wildlife found here. It is only a two-hour scenic drive to the archaeological Olduvai Gorge and the Grumeti River, famed for its crocodiles, forests and black and white colobo monkeys. Balloon safaris and visits to Masai villages can also be arranged. Note that activities are seasonal and it’s important to book any visits prior to arrival.

There is a cosy mess tent with both indoor and outdoor dining available, a lounge tent and library. The campfire is lit every evening for appetizers and snacks before dinner. Overall, the camp’s facilities, service and food are straightforward but good.

The accommodation comprises 10 tents, each with large king-size or twin beds, an en-suite bucket shower, hand basin and flush toilet. The lighting is solar-powered and although the accommodation is somewhat elemental, it is certainly comfortable and falling asleep hearing the sounds of hyenas and other wildlife is magical.

Children are welcome and although there are no age restrictions, the camp does provide an authentic bush safari experience with no fencing so animals such as lions and elephants may pass through the camp. For this reason, as with any wild safari, the camp is recommended for families with older children who must remain under their parents’ supervision at all times.

Serengeti Kati Kati is a simple, well-positioned camp offering reasonable comfort and good value for money in a superb location in the vast Serengeti plains.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
