Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp

Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp has large pods of hippo that grunt from their watery hideaway below the camp and black-and-white Colobus monkeys live in Grumeti's bird-filled riverine trees. At night, the nocturnal orchestra of owls and bush babies is punctuated by the primeval sounds of lion and hyena.

 

The utter luxury and superb standard of accommodation found at the Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp often seems a little odd when you think about where you are - right in the middle of one of the world's most famous remaining regions of wilderness.

 

Nevertheless, there it is - ten spacious, comfortable and opulently decorated safari tented camps with en suite bathrooms complete with hot and cold running water. Each beautifully set out banda has a huge double bed, and a private balcony with wonderfully comfortable chairs into which you can sink after a day's game driving in the beautiful Western Corridor.

 

The Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp lies on a bend of a tributary of the Grumeti River, and the resulting small pool is often filled with hippos and crocodiles. The well-stocked bar and restaurant deck overlook the pool, as does the swimming pool, so you can relax and let the wildlife come to you!

 

The theme of Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp is very elegant yet unusual; the massive large safari tents with extravagant bright colors of the chaise lounge or accessories found throughout the Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp complement the dark handcrafted furnishings, the tents are furnished with large dramatic beds styled to resemble a regal crown.

 

The tents are built on the banks of the river and in the evenings hippos can stroll near the tents to feed. This is quite an adventure for some people.


From Grumeti River Camp, you can enjoy some of the world's largest crocodile enjoying the watery carpets of lilies of the Grumeti River Tributary.

 

Documentaries on crocodiles have been filmed from Grumeti River Camp. The best time to overnight at Grumeti River Camp is from June to early August when the resident animals have the company of the migratory wildebeest and zebras.

Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp Dining

Grumeti River Camp communal areas are again made in wood and stone and this includes the dining area which has a central open fire and outdoor pizza oven to incite a healthy appetite and spend nights under the Serengeti skies. Nearby, the pool is cool, clear and well-tended.

 

Safari guests at Grumeti can enjoy flamboyant tents under thatch. The vibrancy of kente cloth and local sculptured furnishings bring the excitement and romance of Africa to life.

 

Grumeti River Camp provides for a very intimate, avant-garde and romantic safari experience, this combined with wonderful dinners under the stars and lively nights with grazing hippos and roaring lions creates, in our opinion, one of the finest tented lodges in Tanzania.


Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp Safaris
Grumeti River Camp is usually incorporated into African Spice Safaris flying safaris in and drive-back itineraries at the beginning of your Tanzania safari. You will most likely be arriving via the nearby Grumeti Airstrip on your regional flight departing from the Arusha Airport.

 

A night or two at the beginning of your safari is a superb way to kick off your adventure before traveling to other areas of the Serengeti and onwards to the Crater and the other great Parks of Northern Tanzania. From Grumeti River Camp, it is about a 2-hour drive east to the Seronera Valley of the Central Serengeti.

 

The main road to Seronera follows the Grumeti River through the Musabi plains and all the way into the Central Serengeti. Grumeti River Camp is renowned for its stylish, vibrantly African designed tented suites set along the banks of a by water of the Grumeti River, offering exceptional crocodile and hippo viewing.

 

Accommodations at Grumeti River Camp consist of a main lodge area set on the banks of a small hippo pool and 10 sleeping tents generously spaced throughout the property to ensure privacy. All 10 tents are furnished with 1 double bed, which can be converted to 2 twin beds upon request. Unfortunately, no triples are available.

Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp Accommodation

Grumeti River Camp tents are all built on a raised stone platform and encased under a wooden thatched roof. There is a small private deck in front of each tent with safari chairs and lounge chairs. The interiors are quite eclectic and feature vibrant African fabrics.

 

Upon entering your tent, you are greeted by a colorful and oversized bed with a spectacular headboard. Just in front of your bed are two bright cushioned chairs and a small coffee table with 3 jars of tasty hard candy. Immediately behind the bed is a single washbasin with electrical outlets where you can charge your batteries.

 

To the left and right of the washbasin are two separate wooden doors that lead to the shower and toilet. The toilet is completely enclosed while the beautiful alfresco shower is open under the stars. Please note that the generator is turned off each night at 10.30PM.

 

Grumeti River Camp main guest areas are just as impressive as your room and consist of a lounge, domed bar, game-viewing deck and inside and outside dining areas. The lounge overlooks a lush tributary of the Grumeti River containing approximately 20 resident hippos.

 

During your stay at Grumeti River Camp, make sure to set aside an hour or two to watch these entertaining animals. There is even a small ornate plunge pool from which you can lounge in and watch the hippos down below doing the same.

 

Grumeti River Camp service is unbeatable. There is a team of 34 staff (accommodating a maximum of 20 guests) that will go out of their way to make sure your stay is completely enjoyable. They really are a friendly bunch and their pleasant and engaging personalities are certainly one of the highlights of a stay here.

 

During the night, the surrounding area comes alive with the sounds of hippos grunting, lions roaring or a hyenas calling. Hippos are mainly nocturnal grazers and it is quite common that you will hear them grazing next to your tent during the night.

 

Grumeti River Camp has no fences around and because the camp resides in a low-lying area and next to Grumeti River, many animals freely move through the camp during the night.

 

For obvious safety reason, it is imperative that you do not walk around unescorted during the night. There will be a safety briefing upon arrival and someone will be waiting outside your tent each evening to escort you to and from dinner.


Grumeti River Camp features the following;

* 10 Spacious Safari Tents with ceiling fans

* Expansive Game viewing deck

* Boma (outdoor dining area)

* All with en suite bathrooms

* Sparkling plunge pool

* African crafts shop

* Funky guest areas


Grumeti River Camp meals are delicious. Wake up calls are taken the night before and coffee or tea and biscuits are delivered to your tent in the morning at the predetermined time. Breakfast boxes can be arranged for early morning game drives or you can enjoy breakfast on the outside patio.

 

Breakfast consists of a mixed buffet with orders taken for eggs, omelets, bacon, toast, pancakes etc. The buffet consists of yogurt, nuts, cereal, breads, fruit and juice. Similarly to breakfast, you have your choice of dinning in for lunch or enjoying a lunch box if you plan a full day adventure game drive.

 

The lunch boxes at Grumeti River Camp are noteworthy as they are among the tastiest you will encounter on your safari. Lunches are usually served on the open lawn in

'front of the Grumeti River.
