Fodor's Review

You'll have the opportunity to go walking on the plains of the south Serengeti with genuine Masai warriors at this mid-priced camp. Built around a large kopje (rocky outcrop) just south of the Serengeti border in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the camp is operated in partnership with the local Masai. It's the only camp in the Olduvai Gorge and is only a 40-minute drive from the Ngorongoro Crater. The game is particularly abundant December through May, and guests

have been kept awake all night during the migration by the snuffling and snorting of thousands of wildebeest. Tents have concrete floors and thatch roofs with fully-functioning bathrooms. Two thatch rondavels serve as lounge and restaurant, and there's an open fire pit where you'll can spend quality time with the authentic Masai guides or reminisce after the day's activities, which can include a variety of superb walking safaris, game drives, or a trip to the Olduvai museum. Don't forget a flashlight for the evenings. All activities are included.
