Overview

Surrounded by open savannah, Ikoma Tented Camp shelters guests in a grove of acacia trees amidst the Serengeti National Park. Whilst potentially vulnerable to some noise from game vehicle traffic, Ikoma Tented Camp is a fantastic good value camp from which to explore the wildlife among the plains by vehicle or by foot.

The camp positions guests at the western corridor of the Serengeti National Park, from which trail Kirawira and the Grumeti river. Along the way, guests may spot giant wildebeest-eating crocodiles, lions dangling from trees to escape the savannah heat, and giraffes peering into the lodge area. Guests can enjoy the camp’s unique nocturnal game drives, which provide a great opportunity to see game that only appear at night such as leopard, aardvark, and the bat-eared fox.

Walking game trails also offer guests the opportunity to see such game up close and personal. These walks are led by expert rangers who enable guests to get as close to the game as is safely possible, and are usually followed either by breakfast in the bush at dawn or sundowners at dusk. Guests may also take the chance to visit a local Maasai village.

Private verandas offer good views of the Serengeti plains. These come with each of the 35 spacious tented rooms available as guest accommodation, which accompany en-suite facilities and cold drink room service. Bush breakfast and dinner is also available upon request.

  • 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
