We stayed only 1 night at the place, which is outside of the Serengeti park (1hour drive from the center of the park). The "room"/tent was very nice, clean with a king bed and in the middle of the nature! The second compartment was a bathroom made on a rock, very beautiful and original. No insects were in the tent...

Ngome Safari Camp was wonderful! Our tent had a huge bathroom with natural rock for the back wall and sink! There is a rock hill that is an easy walk up to view the sunrise. A Maasai man is the night security! He sits by a campfire when not patrolling. The owner, Jasper, joined us and our guide for dinner... More

We stayed 2 nights with Jasper. He is a really friendly host. The tents are perfect, there's everything you need. The view from Ngome is great. A good place to see the sunset! The food is good and there is enough beer :-) In the night we heard a lot of animals (lions, hyenas, elephants). It was a amazing experience... More

We had an unforgettable experience here at Ngome camp. The service was impeccable, the tents are very luxurious (clean and comfortable), the personnel was unbelievably friendly and the food was delicious! Without a doubt our best stay in Tanzania. Even though the camp is situated right on the edge of the Serengeti national park, there is still plenty of animal... More

We stayed in Ngome for 2 nights while in Central Serengeti. Bear in mind that the camp is outside the national park, but that doesn't mean there are no animals around since the park has no fixed borders. In fact, we saw a herd of elephants and during the night I could hear lion and hyena. The place is perfectly... More

Very nice tented camp, located just outside of the Serengeti. Very remote area, with comfortable and originally decorated tents, an amazing staff and a "wauw"viewpoint that overlooks the whole area. We really enjoyed our stay there. The staff, jasper and his team of people from the nearby village, were really friendly. Also excellent food in a really nice setting. The... More

We arrived in from Musoma after the previous day ending the safari in Masai Mara Kenya, By 4pm me and my group were starting to settle in to great pictures as this area is not infiltrated with traffic even the Shy Eland can be seen close in great herds. The camp is set up in a serene environment, a habitat... More

First of all, this camp is located OUTSIDE Serengeti. We used it as our base to visit the Serengeti Mara area and have a chance to see the great migration. Be aware that this camp is about 2-3 hours from Mara River, you will do game driving along the way to Mara, but it is worth knowing it will take... More

Rose, Jasper and their staff were wonderful hosts! They literally customized the entire lodge to all of our needs. Staying at Ngome was a unique experience, perfectly paired with the safari. The lodging was very comfortable, yet felt close to nature, hearing all types of wildlife at night. The food was some of the best I've had in Tanzania. I... More

Recently stayed at Ngrome safari camp for 2 nights during a safari and could not have more positive things to say about the stay! Jasper and Rose were the most accommodating hosts-so pleasant and engaged with us. The food there was incredible-the perfect way to end a long day in the Serengeti. Everything is homemade and sooo delicious! The provide... More
