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.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
