GRUMETI SERENGETI TENTED CAMP

Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp is situated in a remote valley in the western corridor of the Serengeti National Park, just 50 kilometres east of Lake Victoria - Africa's largest lake. Flanked by two hillsides, this flamboyant camp overlooks a bywater of the Grumeti River and offers a comfortable haven from which to experience the truly wild pulse of Africa.

The unspoilt wilderness of the Serengeti is not only famous for its river but also for the thousands and thousands of animals that have to wade across it every year during the 'Great Migration'. Not surprisingly, the river is equally renowned for its gigantic crocodiles which are particularly well fed.

Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp's spacious tents under makuti (palm frond) canopies and the vibrancy of colourful interiors - including hand-blown Kenyan glassware, African cloth and local sculptured furnishings - bring alive the excitement of Africa. Each tented suite features a large bed made of Tanzanian cypress and comfortable deck furniture both in and outdoors. En suite bathrooms offer separate w.c.s and alfresco showers open to the sun and stars.

At night, around a starlit banquet, you can regale one another with stories of the day's game sightings. Savour gourmet meals in our open-air boma (enclosed reeded area) or nearby open-fronted dining area. Fusions of sand and stone sparkle in the flickering boma firelight, merging with the shape and moods of the land. We offer delicious Pan-African cuisine - all meals at Grumeti are prepared on traditional 'jikos' (fires) and stone ovens. Private dinners may be arranged for special occasions.

Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp provides guided safaris in open vehicles, bird watching and excursions to Lake Victoria. In the savannah of the Serengeti National Park, guests will marvel at the great number and variety of animals in view - gnu, zebra, gazelle and giraffe. The sunsets from the Masira hills is always a breathtaking experience as is a visit to the wallowing hippos that pass their time frolicking in the adjacent watercourses.

Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp offers a truly traditional African experience, bringing guest into the wonderfully untamed and untouched world of the savannah.
