Overview

Kubu Kubu is a brand new, permanent tented camp belonging to the Tanganyika Portfolio. It is strategically located in Central Serengeti, Northern Tanzania and as the long March to May rains come to an end, over a million wildebeest, zebra and antelope congregate here to commence their spectacular migration. The camp offers breath-taking views of the migratory path and superb access to the many different areas of the Serengeti National Park, with its abundant wildlife and diverse habitats.

The main tent houses the restaurant and a cosy lounge area. WiFi is available in this part of the camp and there’s a small library and selection of board games for guests to enjoy. There is a swimming pool for day-time relaxation and, weather permitting, an evening camp fire for sunset viewing.

The camp’s central location means that there is a wide variety of activities on offer. Vehicle safaris in the Seronera Valley provide the opportunity to see lions, gazelles, giraffe, impala and elephant. Although typically elusive, leopards and cheetah are here in abundance. It’s worth noting that night-time safaris are not permitted due to National Park regulations; however, nothing can detract from the first-class quality of the game-viewing and the birdlife is spectacular. The Grumeti River, famed for its giant crocodiles and black and white colobus monkeys, is a scenic two-hour drive away. Visits to the Olduvai Gorge Archaeological Museum (where the remains of the earliest humans were found) are also available, along with early morning balloon safaris.

There are 19 spacious, double tents at Kubu Kubu Camp plus 3 inter-connecting double tents for families. Each tent has a large king size bed or twin beds and an en-suite bathroom with flush toilet, hand basin and outdoor shower with hot water. There is solar-powered lighting with a back-up generator.

Children are welcome at Kubu Kubu and we find the camp a good choice for families. It offers reasonable value, family tents, a swimming pool, and is well located for shorter morning and afternoon game drives rather than longer full day forays. It is important to note, however, that there is no fencing and animals can wander through the camp. Whilst it is true that the wildlife tends to stay away from humans and tents, parents will need to keep a close eye on children and not allow them to wander off or play independently.

Kubu Kubu Camp is a pristine, mid-range property with a welcoming atmosphere, offering an authentic safari experience with a good level of comfort in stunning surroundings.

Health and Safety Note: Please note the swimming pool at Kubu Kubu has no depth markings.

  • 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
