My family just returned from an amazing trip with Kensington to the Serengeti. We stayed at their tented camp. The staff was amazing, the food was great, and the animal sightings were unbelievable. We saw lots of lions, cheetahs (even a mother cheetah taking down a gazelle while her 2 cubs watched), hippos, zebras, elephants, giraffes, ostriches, hyenas, jackals, lots... More

I went to this camp with my girlfriends in November 2010 and it was our final stop in a 10 day trip, which started in Kenya. After 10 days of driving and staying at several camps this one stood out because of the great staff. We were met in the rain by the camp manager who had a huge smile... More

We travelled to Kenya and Tanzania with Kensington in Oct, both myself and my now fiance. The camp was the one location where I was concerned about accommodation because my fiance is not a 'camp' person. He always says that he'll only stay in a 4 star place and hates staying in more budget 3 star hotels - so needless... More

My g/f and I took a 10 day trip through Kenya/Tanzania hitting all the highlight game parks on the way. This camp/park by far was my favorite. Although the game was sparse since the migration was still in Masai Mara and the northern woodlands of the Serengeti, the camp made it my favorite. The people who operate the camp were... More

We stayed at this tented camp for 2 nights and loved it. Yes, they are tents and things might not work as perfectly as a 5 start hotel, but you are in the middle of the Serengeti. It doesn't get much better than that! Our tent was very clean and bug free. Our shower was not perfect, but they fixed... More

My wife and I, two children and their spouses recently traveled to Tanzania for a seven- day safari. We spent 5 nights at various luxury lodges and 2 nights at the Kensington tent camp, which turned out to be the highlight of our entire trip. Douglas, the camp manager, and his staff of seven were extremely friendly and eager to... More

On a recent trip to Tanzania, my husband and I had the pleasure of staying in the Kensington Serengeti tented camp. What a delight that was! I could camp every day, if my accommodations were always this lovely. Our spotlessly-clean tent was roomy with two queen beds and the attached bath was great. We had no problems with bugs at...

I was concerned about this place during the planning process because of the lack of good reviews. We spent 2 nights here at the end of our safari. This is a mobile camp, but from what I gathered it really is permanent with mobile features. The tent size was pretty big. It was too close to the tent next door.... More

My wife and I stayed at this so called upscale tent camp run by Kensington tours. The tent camp was located in the right place within the Serengeti preserve near the Grumate River where wildlife abounds year round. Game drives were great and you can see wildlife from the tent camp itself. Before the game drives and after you want... More
