Fodor's Review

The third camp in the Grumeti concession in Serengeti's Western Corridor—it joins Sabora Plains Tented Camp and Sasakwa Lodge—is sprawling but intimate and is built in a contemporary style, with lots of stone, wood and sand emphasizing the natural surroundings. It's located under sycamore trees on a hill that overlooks a gorgeous pool, river, watering hole and the the bush beyond. Suites, all with outdoor showers, are made out of stone and thatch, and are glass-fronted, allowing for expansive views of the water hole or river below. Buffalo, elephant, topi (an East African antelope), and giraffe all come to drink, as do predators, while black-and-white colobus monkeys scream and swing in the trees along the river. The Great Migration moves through the reserve between June and August, although there's plenty of game all year round. Bird life is prolific with more than 400 species including lots of raptors. Viewing decks and public areas jut out over the rock pool and overlook the Grumeti

River, making imaginative use of local stone and wooden poles; although the effect is rustic, there is nothing rustic about the elegantly furnished tents and superb service. Dine alone with your personal waiter in attendance, or mingle with the other guests and swap fireside stories after a day's game-viewing.
