  • Jacob
    We arrived at the site at the end of a particularly busy safari day. The camp was quite empty and the staff gave us amazing service. The place is very isolated and impressive.
  • Andre
    Location was great! Great plains and numerous animals in front of the camp. Staff was very friendly, helpfull, relaxed and great fun to talk to.
  • Robin
    Elephants 10meters from the tents, lions just a few hundred meters away, friendly staff, romantic tents. Really nice.
  • Marcel
    The location is amazing in the middle of the Serengeti. It is possible to see game directly around the tents, which are fully equipped with a good shower and toilet. The food was good, served in a buffet style.
