Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp

Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp

Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp is a luxurious tented camp, perfectly placed along a main migration routes used by wildebeest, zebra, and their many predators in the annual migration spectacle that takes place each year between July and October. Set in the Western Serengeti, the camp is 335 km from Arusha and adjacent to the Seronera and Lobo airstrips.

Set in the very heart of the Serengeti, the camp is in a glade known as “The Place of the Klipspringer.” Surrounded by granite towers, each of the sixteen luxury tents has its own stone platform and thatch roof, while being joined to the camp by winding stone paths. The bedrooms are spacious and offer two queen-sized four poster beds with mosquito nets, a seating area, and tented bathrooms that are well appointed with twin basins, showers, and flush toilets. Each tent also has a private terrace.

The central tented lounge boasts a stylish bar and a selection of wildwood seating, while the dining room is a classic tented space with a panoramic terrace offering spectacular views out over the plains. There is also a circular campfire area for those who enjoy the al fresco experience. Evening entertainment includes cultural dances and music.

This is a family camp so children’s dining, babysitting, a range of adventure sports, and educational entertainment for kids of all ages is offered.

Activities for the more mature adventurer include bird-watching, guided walks, game viewing, hiking, backpacking, and 4x4 trails.

The balloon safari and breakfast are regarded by many as an experience never to be forgotten. As one drifts gently over the earth, enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Serengeti . . . and don’t forget to breathe! Upon returning to earth once more, a hearty breakfast awaits you.

Another classic safari moment is the early morning game drive and bush breakfast. The goal is to set out early in pursuit of the Big 5 and then meet up with the camp staff for a full English breakfast. Not to mention the bush dinner, timed to coincide with a spectacular African sunset.
