Although this camp has an excellent location and is good value for money, we feel that a number of tented camp specialists offer a much more authentic safari experience. As a result, we rarely send our clients here; however, if clients do wish to come, it is best booked as part of a Serena Hotel circuit to get lower rates.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp is situated in the Lobo area of the Serengeti on one of the main corridors of the Great Migration. It is part of the Serena Hotel Group, which caters for the upper-middle market packaged safaris. It is smaller and slightly more upmarket the most of their camps.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES AT MBUZI MAWE TENTED CAMP:
The main area is a large canvas and stone building, which contains reception, a stylish boutique, and a lounge and dining area. A wide terrace gives spectacular views across the Serengeti. The 16 guestrooms are in large Meru tents with stone foundations. Each has a four-poster bed, an en suite bathroom, and a shady veranda.
ACTIVITIES AT MBUZI MAWE TENTED CAMP:
- The game-viewing is good throughout the year, but even better during the Great Migration.
*This property is unfenced and located in a wildlife area, so large and potentially dangerous animals do pass through. If you opt to stay here, always be alert when walking around the camp and request for a member of staff to escort you if you have any concerns. Any guest is escorted after dark as a matter of course.
