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.

  • The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
    There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
    Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
    Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

  • The Namibia trip was fantastic!

    Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).

    As for specifics:

    OKONJIMA
    This place was the best!
    Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
    We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
    If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.

    EMANYA
    The only (slight) disappointment.
    Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.

    OKAUKEUJO
    Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
    The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.

    DORO NAWAS
    Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
    A nice stopping point on the drive.

    SPITZKOPPE
    An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
    Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
    The staff was on par with Okonjima.
    2 days were perfect.

    Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
    They represent Tourdust well!

    Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

  • We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
    Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
