Fodor's Expert Review Mara River Camp

Singita Lami, Serengeti National Park, Mara, Tanzania Fodor's Choice

Considered one of the top properties in the Northern Serengeti, the luxurious Mara River Camp has spectacular views over its namesake river and a funky, bohemian, and oh-so-chic style. Situated in the Lamai triangle—the 98,000 hectares between the Serengeti Park, the Maasai Mara, and the Mara River—the camp is within an area of one of the highest concentrations of year-round wildlife. Solar-powered, natural ventilation and attentive staff create an unfussy, gentle environment in your private tent. Art pieces by young African designers slot neatly with simple, natural fabrics. Time it right for the migration and you are in for one amazing experience.

PROS

  • modern, African-inspired natural beauty of the camp
  • exquisite views
  • great food

CONS

  • very pricey
  • when the migration is in full swing there can be quite a smell emanating from the river due to the massive amounts of wildebeest in the area
