About Your Tented Camp

Set amongst an amphitheatre of monolithic rock sculptures known as kopjes, Mbuzi Mawe Camp nestles in an acacia glade with sweeping views over the Serengeti National Park. With its geographically central location in the park, the migration is accessible to some degree throughout much of the year. The area also benefits from being away from the crowds thus ensuring a more secluded experience.

Mbuze Mawe is named after the Klipspringer, a small antelope that can be seen scurrying amongst the rocks that surround the camp. Run by the reputable Serena hotel group, the camp has just 16 luxury tented rooms offering an authentic safari experience suited to those on a fly-in or private safari. Tucked within the centre of camp is a tented dining room which has an expansive outdoor terrace for those that wish to dine outside and enjoy the sweeping views. There is also a lounge area where the stylish bar is a welcome spot for a cocktail after a successful day on safari.
