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.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
