Ikoma Safari Camp is located a few kilometers from the Ikoma Gate to Serengeti National Park. The accomodations are nice, but have a rustic feel. The water heaters are solar, and if you are there on an overcast day you shouldn't expect a warm shower in the evening. The evening meal in the dining banda was tasty. They prepared a... More

Nice budget lodge, Pepe is a great guy! It is clean and airy! Not too far from the main gate. Food could do with some improvement, more lighting in the dining area would make it better. The sounds of the migrating animals at night was too wonderful.

All what you expect from a tented camp. Very close to the Serengetti National park, which results in hyiena's, zebra's, elephants, and wildebeast directly around your tent. Camp is good protected by armed guards. Comport in tented camps is good, not more. Clean and well maintained tents. Food in the restaurant is average to good. Friendly people and good service....

We stayed at Ikoma for 3 days and we had a wonderfull time. The bungalows , the food , the staff and the owner , Pepe were great. We arrived as visitors and left as friends. Will include Ikoma Tented Camp to my tour if we ever go back to Tanzania.

The bungalows are clean, big and comfortable and the camp itself is nicely done and with taste. Bed are comfortable and quality of sleep is very good (the area is very calm). Pepe, the owner, is a very nice guy and you will easily find yourself spending the evening drinking a beer and chatting with him. What needs an improvement... More

Great place with real African feel. Amazing views of night fires over Serengeti. Sounds of Serengeti we heard at night , plus our own bats in the eve of the roof. Velvet monkeys, and Thomson's on the front of the porch. Breakfasts at gazebos was just perfect. Friendly staff, good food. Would definitely return for a longer stay.

We stayed three nights at this place and liked it very much. The rooms were big and nice and we felt we were still in the Serengeti with all the sounds you heard at night. The staff was very friendly and it was nice to chat with Pepe the manager around the campfire. The food was nice and breakfast was... More

We really enjoyed our stay! The staff was really attentive. Every time we needed something, they were there to help us out. We requested early breakfast and we got it. Pepe, the manager, was especially accommodating. One of my friends decided to not to join us on our safari for one day and Pepe accompanied her basically the whole day... More

We stayed 2 nights during our safari the first week in July. The staff was very friendly. The food was fine although not the best we had. The best part? Sitting on the little porch on our tent and watching the elephants walking by. Unforgettable! Beautiful place!

Pepi the proprietor, made this place more special than it already was, rooms are large, clean, beds comfortable and had mosquito nets. Continuous hot water thanks to Pepi's ingenious use of solar power. Food was great, service was good and friendly s too. Close location to park entrance. Wild life at your doorstep. What more could you want. Pepi even... More
