Stayed here for 2 nights and it is almost on the banks of river Mara, and so on the right time one could get to see crossing from the camp itself. The camps being laid on rough ground had uneven floor and so uncomfortable bed position too. The chemical toilets were not working well in few tents. The dinner was... More

We stayed for two nights in the Serengeti Wilderness camps in the Northern Serengeti by Wild frontiers. It was really amazing migration camp located Very near the Mara River. We were in the Right place but at the Wrong time, due to the migration which was happening few kms away from this camp, since this area was full of tall... More

We were fortunate to spend four days at this wonderful location in the heart of the Serengeti. Our tent which was spacious, and clean was an ideal location to experience the wildness that is the Serengeti. Every day we would have the wildebeest as neighbors. The last day we were there, in the middle of the night, a lion took... More

We requested that our safari operator book us into the wilderness camp for our three nights at Serengeti NP, after reading the reviews here and we were not disappointed. The tents are clean and the location is amazing. Kudos to the camp supervisor, he runs the camp excellently. The service and the food were superb and we always felt welcome... More

The camp was incredible - the tents were clean, large and so comfortable. We arrived late to camp after a small mishap during the day, and the staff immediately filled our shower with hot water, brought us much needed drinks, and prepared dinner for us. The staff were so kind and made us feel so welcome. The food was incredible,... More

Although we stayed here 2 nights, we were out on game drives so much that we didn't get to enjoy the camp itself as much as I would have liked. There is a nice tent set up as a lounge with comfortable chairs, a cash bar, and plenty of games. The dining tent was a bit dark but they serve... More

This is a great semi-permanent camp. It is located in the seronera area of the serengeti. I stayed with my wife and 2 daughters in March, 2014. This is a small, intimate camp. These are nice tents with en suite bathrooms and a bucket shower. Good hot water, but goes quickly. Read the directions on how to do it and... More

By the time we stayed at this camp, we had stayed in many lodges with "tents" built on platforms with permanent plumbing and wood floors. Serengeti Wilderness Camp is a real tent, with floors made of tent material, a pump toilet (kind of like some small boats I've been on) and bucket showers. So you're roughing it a little bit....

Friends and I stayed in two tents in Serengeti Wilderness Camp for 2 nights in February. Generally, we thought the camp was OK but we thought it suffered from a lack of attention to detail. We were greeted pleasantly on arrival but, especially compared to practices in other mobile tented camps, we thought the orientation was a bit lacking. For... More

We loved this camp. You feel really close to nature and go to sleep at night listening to the animal noises and wake up in the morning to the birds singing. We stayed in other "tented lodges" that didn't really seem like tents. In this mobile camp you really are in a tent - but the fanciest tent I've ever... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a report on our camp. We are continually trying to improve the experience, and your comments ref the lights are 'already in hand' as we were there recently and noted that the strength of the bed-side light was a little weak for reading. New globes have been purchased and sent... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Is a seasonal camp and located in the heart of the Serengeti National Park, with access to arguably some of the best game viewing in Africa. The style of camp is simple but with every comfort being taken care of. Seasonal camps have the benefit of being able to move to some of the best game viewing areas of the park and every three to six months we move to a new location. Serengeti Wilderness Camp comprises just ten spacious tents, we provide comfortable beds with quality linens, en suite eco-friendly flusthing toilet and bush-shower off an intimate dressing room area. Lighting is by 12-volt (solar powered) with bedside lamps provided. The tents each have a shady verandah, where guests may relax and read quietly or perhaps watch birds and animals. ... more   less
