Nearby the Grumeti River and situated on the banks of one of its bywaters, Grumeti Tented Camp is a hive for some incredible wildlife sightings and most particularly hippos who wallow in the waters metres from the lodge.
In this remote pocket of the Serengeti, guests are treated to a true wilderness experience, with the nearby river world-renowned for its population of impressively large Nile crocodile and wildebeest crossings.The camp's corner of the Serengeti is filled with a wealth of wildlife year round, including large prides of lions, leopard, cheetah, hyena and elephants. It is also the only area within the Serengeti where guests can see black and white colombus monkeys. For guests with a penchant for birding the area offers exceptional birdlife, with some endemic species.
Grumeti Tented Camp itself offers 10 spacious tents with en-suite bathrooms and al fresco showers open to the sun and stars. The room interiors exhibit the same colourful flamboyancy as the vibrant surrounding bushveld. All ten tents offer shaded verandahs so guests can participate in 'armchair gameviewing' while staying sheltered from the hot African sun. Seasonal sightings of the Great Migration are a main highlight of this rustic, luxurious camp in the Western Serengeti.
The lodge is the perfect place for guests to relax with a cooling dip in the pool (providing views of the hippos lazing in the lagoon) or an in-room massage- the ideal foil after a hard day spent in the African wilds. Mouth-watering dinners are prepared in outdoor ovens and are served beneath a billion stars in the dramatic boma. Spacious decks allow guests to take in the vast Serengeti landscape while enjoying sundowners and the calls of the wild. WiFi is also available at the camp, as well as a 'gym in a basket' in each tent for exercise-conscious guests.
A number of airlines offer daily scheduled flights from Arusha to Grumeti Airstrip, followed by a five to ten-minute drive to the camp.
Twice daily game drives cultural visits, day trips to Lake Victoria, in-room massages and balloon safaris nearby. Please note some activities may incur additional costs.
