Serengeti, Tanzania

Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp is set in the remote reaches of the Park, on a bywater of the Grumeti River, known for its wildebeest crossings and enormous Nile crocodiles. Tucked into a strip of riverine forest, guests thrill to the antics of spectacular pied colobus monkeys (found nowhere else in the Serengeti) and enjoy nocturnal serenades by orchestras of owls and bushbabies. Every year between June and July, Africa's annual Great Migration passes through Grumeti, and hundreds upon thousands of wildebeest, zebra and other herbivores cross the Grumeti River, risking the jaws of some of Africa's largest crocodiles.

At Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp age is truly just a number! Young or old, this vibrant and rejuvenating haven charms all guests with its warm welcome and dramatic setting.  With ample resident game, the Camp is also the perfect vantage point for one of the most famous crossing points of the Great Migration.

Relax right on the water's edge and unwind to the playful frolics of our resident family of hippo. Just make sure you don't try to take a walk on that extra green patch of lawn - it's really a floating garden of water cabbage that is home to some of Africa's biggest crocodiles!

Step into a blaze of colour in one of only ten flamboyant tents tucked under shady palm frond roofs. Bright, whimsical interiors welcome and invigorate. Vibrant surprises await at every step, from the beaded curtains in the guest areas to the intricate mosaic surfaces of the table tops. Everyday objects acquire a sense of the unusual, with even the spacious outdoor shower shaded from the sun and stars by only a wrought iron dome. Night time becomes an adventure, as hippo call to one another while you lie in the comfort of your king size bed.

The days are designed to thrill you with intimate wildlife experience and the nights to delight you with the romance of canvas under open African skies.

  • Morning Game Drive - As dawn breaks over the Serengeti, the deep voice of your butler delivers a wake-up call at your tent. A tray of tea, coffee and homemade biscuits will be waiting outside your tent. Climb into an open 4x4 safari vehicle with your guide and set off in search of the massed herds of the Great Migration. If the herds have already moved on into Kenya, your guide will introduce you to the rich resident wildlife.
  • Breakfast - After a morning spent tracking down wildlife, return to the camp for a hearty bush breakfast. Feast  on platters laden with toast, jams and marmalades, homemade muesli, fresh fruits and assorted cheeses. Hot breakfasts are prepared on the open fire, with eggs, omelettes, frittatas and freshly cooked pot breads.
  • Lunch - After breakfast, indulge in a steaming hot bucket shower or maybe a quick nap before lunch. Inviting lunch platters are served in the cool shade of the dining tent.
  • Afternoon Tea - While away the afternoon hours with a good book and a chilled glass of wine in the guest tent or simply watch the wonders of the bush directly from your tent's veranda. Afternoon tea, with a selection of light snacks, will be served in the late afternoon.
  • Afternoon Game Drive - Depart on an afternoon game drive as the heat of the day starts to break. Keep an eye out for lion, leopard, hyena and jackal gearing up for their nocturnal hunts.
  • Dinner - As you arrive back at the camp, cocktails are served around a blazing fire. Dine under the stars on a delicious bush meal cooked on the open fire. After dinner, indulge in decadent desserts, served with tea, coffee or cognac. Stories from an adventurous day are shared around a glowing campfire. You will then be escorted back to your tent, where you will drift off to sleep amidst the sounds of the African bush
