Grumeti Serengeti River Lodge

Stylish Camp in the Western Serengeti

This stylish and modern coloured camp is situated right on the banks of the Grumeti River in the Serengeti National Park, which is filled with pods of grunting hippos and huge crocodiles who wait eagerly for the migration of wildebeest and zebra to attempt to cross. Utilising the natural bow shape of the river, and paying homage to the circular forms of a traditional Maasai manyatta, Grumeti Serengeti River Lodge unfolds to reveal a sense of luxury like no other. Adorned with Kitenge fabrics and accentuated with stone walls, the lodge also features the vibrant colours of the fishing communities surrounding Lake Victoria.

Aside from the lodge, there are also 10 very spacious guest suites which offer natural light, an indoor shower with a spectacular view, and a private plunge pool. A family suite, with the addition of a smaller children’s bedroom, offers adventurous families the opportunity to explore the African bush together.

Celebrating the local culture and cuisine, the meals served at Grumeti Serengeti River Lodge are not to be missed. The interactive kitchen creates a space for guests to work alongside chefs and help plan the menus for the day, whilst the traditional boma serves a selection of artisanal pizzas and salt-crusted, whole baked fish along with many other delicious meals. Relax around the central circular bar in the afternoon and evening with your family, or get to know your fellow Grumeti guests.

Animals do wander through into the camp on occasion so you don’t have to venture very far to see them, and bird-life in this area is excellent so so keep an eye out for the smaller creatures that frequent this lovely area of the park. This part of the Serengeti has a vast landscape of hills, floodplains, and rivers which sustain huge herds of plains game and keep the predators in the area.

Places to combine Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp with

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
Perched up high on the edge of this remarkable natural wonder, the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge holds a prime position. With views spanning the spectacular caldera, you can enjoy a relaxing visit to this otherwise bustling attraction and dip into a world that’s the permanent home to roughly 25,000 animals. The huge amounts of game that find sanctuary here roam over 20 kilometres on the crater floor and this allows for some excellent game viewing opportunities. Prides of bachelor lions are sometimes seen spanning the landscape, on the hunt for their own families and, dotted among the plains game, you might be lucky enough to spot a rhino in the distance. Morning and afternoon game drives are taken by highly experienced guides with visits to the nearby Olduvai Gorge available when vehicle occupancy allows. The crater itself can get quite busy but there’s a peaceful quiet that flows through the rooms, social areas and outside spaces of the lodge. North and South Camp both have twelve beautiful suites and the Tree Camp, slightly set apart from the others, has just six. Raised up on stilts, these rooms are all tastefully decorated with Tanzanian hardwoods and silk curtains which make the rooms cosy and warm; the ridge can get quite nippy, after all. The dining areas have viewing decks and comfortable indoor lounges which are ideal for catching up on some midday afternoon reading, or ticking off the birds that you might have seen so far. You could also decide to have a relaxing massage in your room, and completely pamper yourself.
