Grab the camp.

Don't know what your entire itinerary looks like, but being under canvas is special. And Mbuzi Mawe has lovely large tents, comfy beds and good food.

Besides, you can hear the lions growling at night.

Morgiane, I would also advise Mbuzi Mawe even though we didn't stay there two weeks ago, we were at the Serena and hated it. The food was absolutely foul! The only good thing about staying there was that the migration was nearer than to Mbuzi at the time (which is why we were advised to stay there.) I agree totally with others, you just can't beat a tented camp!!!
