Mbuzi Mawe Serena Camp

Explore Tanzania

Found in a remote location of the Serengeti National Park, Mbuzi Mawe is a luxury tented camp situated at a convenient stop-over point for anyone travelling north or south and a practical base for game drives in the Lobo Kopjes area, the Western Corridor and the north side of the Seronera area.

The property is surrounded by granite outcrops in the central Serengeti. There are just 16 luxury en-suite tents all with good space between them. Accommodation is rustic and simple but this affords the charm of a true wilderness experience, lined with modern facilities, such as comfortable furnishings, ceiling fan, 24 hour electricity and a flushing toilet. Some of the tents boast beautiful sweeping views, which can also be seen from some of the public areas.

Dinner is served in a tent housing a good number of tables and presenting a stone deck outside, should guests wish to dine alfresco.
