WOW - what a place. This review is a little overdue as I stayed in March 2014. After spending 5 nights at the sister camp in the Maasai Mara (which was brilliant also and will receive a similar review) I arrived here and was just blown away. I spent five nights here also and the location, the animal experiences, the...

All the BUSHTOPS reserves are amazing. We first went to the MaraBrushtops, then here. WHAT A FANTASTIC PLACE! Our tent was as big as an apartment for two, very confortable and organized. The staff was absolutely friendly and makes us want to come back even more! One tip: ask for the nearest tent to the common lounge (or admnistration area),...

This place is absolutely amazing. We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our 40th wedding anniversary celebrations and Pantaleo and his team went out of their way to make us feel special. We were met at the air strip and given Serengeti Bushtops hats and offered drinks and cookies (coffee and Amarula went down a treat) while the...

But I won't. This is the ultimate in tented camping in Africa. Luxury all the way. We stayed there in late September 2013 for 2 nights and wished we had stayed longer.

We stayed at Serengeti Bushtops a year ago in January 2013, so this review is very tardy - but given that I still think about this place every couple of days I just felt that I had to share my expereinces with others..

Having experienced the Mara Bushtops Camp twice, we decided to stay at the Serengeti Bushtops for 2 nights in December 2013. We booked the Family Tent which comprised of 2 tents interconnected with a foot-bridge.
