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.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
