This was our second tent camp. The location of the camp was in a beautiful location with lots of Acacia trees and abundant wildlife.The tents were older, although still large with king size bed, wash basin, closet space and night tables. We had a flush toilet and a warm shower. The area around the tent was quite muddy due to...

I enjoyed staying at this camp. It wasn't my favorite place to stay in Ndutu which is why they only got four stars. It might be a little too rustic for the price , but I understand the need for them to charge the prices they do. The tents were huge and very comfortable. The food was excellent and the...

Bucket shower was an experience but once in our lifetime is enough :-) Bathing in slimy water wasn't our favorite either but the tent itself is nice and cosy. Food can be improved. This camp moves with the wild life, so for what it does I think they do an excellent job.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at this camp. It is extremely well set up with great facilities. The food was exceptional and tent spacious and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to make sure that we had a fantastic time. I would happily recommend this camp to anyone.

We stayed at this camp for 3 nights in early March and loved it. The camp is a mobile camp so nothing there is permanent, after 3 months everything is packed up leaving no trace that the camp has been there. We were therefore amazed at how everything was provided to make our stay so comfortable and enjoyable. Our tent...

Great comfortable tents, portable but flush toilets, hot showers and good food right out in the bush with animals all around. Great place to see the migration give birth in February. Gets a bit muddy when it rains but great staff clean it up in no time

Daytime game viewing was fantastic, but listening to a male lion call together his pride at 2 a.m. was unforgettable! We also sat around a campfire with four zebras munching 8 feet away. The tents here are pretty luxurious if you, like we, are used to a backpacking tent: flush toilet room, shower room, sink and counter, wardrobe, big beds...

We LOVED this camp experience during the great migration! Wonderfully uncrowded in mid-late March but the wildlife viewing could not be better- perfect time to be there! We stayed in other areas, camps, and lodges during our 2 week Safari, but between the dear staff, great food, central location, and wild adventure of having wildebeest & zebra migrating ALL around...

Were do I start?? Although we definitely stayed in other more luxurious accommodations during our 2 week safari, our 3 nights here were the highlight of the trip. The conditions are not easy, and since we were there in rainy season there was a lot of mud. But the staff did an INCREDIBLE job, and couldn't have been nicer or...

“This is a small intimate camp but spread out, so I think every tent-site is desirable - we had two tents closest to the campfire & dining area, which we would gladly re-book.”
