Great stay, good food, excellent service, friendly people! We spent 2 nights in this fantastic and comfortable camp. Every night we heard wild animals nearby and saw buffalos just in front of our tents at night and in the early morning. The camp was in the north of the Serengeti and we had a great safari and witnessed some of... More

My daughter and I had left the Entim Camp in Kenya, where we were in "roughing it luxury" to a more camping like experience. Entim had tended paths with a landscape garner's meticulousness, and hippo and elelphant vist. Bolondonga was a 2 hour drive from the Lobo airstrip, after flight, border crossing $100 fees apiece for visas, and met by... More

Lighting is so bad so very bad one has difficulty walking around in the tent. Lighting had to fail for 2c days before I was forced to shout for a flash light/torch which I was originally refused. Food again is buffet, so it's a queue with ones plate in ones hand! This is not for me. I didn't like it... More

This tent camp is top notch! Flush toilets, on demand shower (you tell them when you want hot water and they get it for you), everything is spotless and the camp staff are amazing. To be surrounded by the wilds of the Serengeti, yet be perfectly safe and comfortable was out of this world. They set up chairs for cocktails... More

Had the thrill of sleeping 2 nights in the center of the Serengeti, under the stars with the wildlife all around and you rest completely comfortably. A flush toilet and a hot shower add to the luxury experience along with excellent meals and a bon fire at night. Fabulous experience.

Calling it camping really does not do this experience justice. The tents are huge, have real beds, a sink with running water, a flushing toilet and a shower room with bucket shower with hot water. Service is at least 4 3/4 star. Meals are excellent and served in the common area. Beer, wine and softdrinks are available; Included in the... More

I've never seen so many giraffes at once! We enjoyed seeing everal unusual species of cats and monkeys. Very clean interactive zoo and friendly staff. The lemur island was neat. A Snow Leopard was tracking a two year old little boy near by and that was interesting to watch...

This camp was a dream. The tents were awesome. The service was more than you can ask for. A most wonderful experience. Great view on the lake. It was nothing we expected in the middle of nowhere. Thank you Nena.

Our family of four (mom/dad, 2 kids, 11 & 12 yrs) stayed at this mobile camp in early Jan 2015 when it was located near Lake Ndutu just south of the Serengeti Nat'l Park.

We stayed here three nights and enjoyed them very much. This is a small, mobile camp that was located in the northern Serengeti when we visited. The location was amazing- lots of animals wandering nearby and we heard lions roaring all night! All staff were friendly, polite, hard-working and always willing to help. Because of the camp's small, intimate setting,... More
