My wife and I recently celebrated our honeymoon at two Bushtop Camps...Serengeti and Roving. Simple words cannot describe our experience. It is remarkable how this level of luxury (from the camp itself, to the food, the staff, etc) can be maintained in such a remote location; at such a high and consistent level. LOCATION: In the north the landscape is...

Serengeti Bushtops was nothing short of remarkable. My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon and we never wanted to leave for countless reasons. I'm sure I won't be able to comment on everything, but here's an attempt: 1. The accommodations: Magical. Each of the 15 bungalows on the property is remote and overlooks the Serengeti. Every...

First, let me begin by explaining the camp itself is beautifully maintained and true luxury. Secondly, the timing of our visit was perfect because it was during migration and we were able to witness some of the most amazing creatures nature has to offer. Lastly, and most importantly let me explain the level of hospitality we received. My friend and...

From the campfire and drinks at 7pm, to the dinner, to the end of the night with a spa tub in your room. An amazing experience. We would have liked to spend another night there. (We stayed 2...

The beauty of the setting is only surpassed by the warmth and friendliness of the staff. The amazing number of animals on display here boggle the mind! This is the time of plenty in the Serengeti where the predators can find food without having to look very hard! The vultures are so full, they have trouble flying! But the real...

A family of 3, we stayed here for 3 nights in Aug 2016. Our stay here was exceptional. The camp is extremely luxurious. Very tastefully done with great attention to detail. The rooms/tents have amazing views, with wildebeest and zebra grazing around. The sunset from the room is not to be missed. Mr. Pantaleo and his team went out of...

What an amazing and excellent time we had in this luxury tented camp. I have not seen any more beautiful well fitted tents like this in Africa before. The service is great and waking up very safe while buffalo is roaming around is the best Serengeti experience you may wish for. Excellent food choices and very friendly staff took well...

Bushtops was our first stop in the Serengeti and a lovely one at that. We were met at the airstrip by our guide Richard.
