A true camping experience (in tented camp form). Wilderness sights and sounds. Feeling of closeness to the Great Plains of Serengeti. Insects abound but Insecticide provided. We were escorted to dinner by a guide with bow and arrow and escorted back by a guide with a rifle. Wild things close by. Our guide heard a lion roar at 5 am....

A very nice place to relax after one day in safari. The tents are large, nice furnitures, shower with hot water in the midle of the wild. The place is near the Serengeti National Park and you can hear the birds singing and the elephants walking. Great food, good people and the best view of Serengeti

We booked a tented room as part of the Safari tour. Room was spacious and comfortable. Bathroom was clean and plenty of hot water. We were scared about bugs since this was a tented room but we did not see any.

Rooms were large and of great quality - the photos don't do it justice! The tents are built over a concrete base as expected but the connected ensuite at the rear was exceptional quality compared to other similar camps. Water was hot at night but unavailable during the morning. We had a 3-course buffet dinner with live local entertainment which...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in the midst of an incredible scenery of savannah and skies, you find Ikoma Tented Camp, sheltered in a grove of acacia trees. Ikoma has 35 traditional semi-luxury Meru tents, each under thatch with a private veranda overlooking the impressive plains of the Serengeti. The central restaurant and bar area boast a large camp fire an ideal spot to unwind with a chilled drink after a long days of exciting game viewing.Ikoma Tented Camp is ideally situated at the border of the world-renowned Serengeti National Park, along the path of the migrating wildebeests between Kenya and Tanzania. From Ikoma you can enter the western corridor of the park, taking in Kirawira and the Grumeti river home to the giant wildebeest eating crocodiles. There is no better place to enjoy one of the world's greatest wildlife spectacles.Staying at Ikoma Tented Camp gives you the unique opportunity to enjoy a night game drive or a walking safari, as the camp is located just outside the national park boundary. A great chance to see and hear some of the nocturnal animals that can’t be spotted in daytime, such as the Leopard, Aardvark and the Bat-eared fox. Another special way of experiencing the bush is by going along on a guided walking safari. Guided by a professional ranger and guard you discover the bush and its inhabitants at close range. A great way to start or end a day in the Serengeti, followed by a breakfast in the bush or a sun downer at the close of the day.The airstrip a short distance away from the camp means you can be with us in next to no time and avoid the long drive through the park should you prefer a shorter journey. ... more   less
