This was our second time at Serengeti Bushtops and it exceeded our already high expectations! Everything about this property is PERFECT - the staff, the food, the rangers and the atmosphere! We were lucky to see the migration which simply put the cherry on the top! I cannot recommend this property highly enough.

To say this place is amazing is an under statement! I can't recommend the Bushtops enough. We celebrated our honeymoon here and had the best three days, from the accommodation to the food and the fantastic bush drives. Massive thanks to Godson our Guide (that is the most knowledgeable person I have ever come across) and our spotter Barraka. We... More

Serengeti Bushtops is simply outstanding in every respect! What makes it special is the staff and their genuine hospitality and warmth which is non existent even in many of the high end hotels around the world. The cabins, game drives, quality of food and service provided is all of exceptional quality and this is all done in the middle of... More

When trying to describe our experience at Serengeti Bushtops the movie the Princess Bride comes to mind. Being there is all about "As You Wish!" For those who love their creature comforts when viewing creatures, this is the perfect place to stay! From the "tent" (which is bigger than many people's apartments) to the cuisine which is outstanding to the... More

This place really exceeded our expectations. it was our last stop after Kili and Ngorongoro. The setting is incredible, fabulous views and top notch service. The tents are outstanding, the food is fantastic and the staff were really excellent. The game drives were amazing, Deus our guide, was very friendly, knowledgeable and prudent. He and Amos had incredible eyes for... More

Having stayed at Serengeti Bushtops’ sister camp (Mara Bushtops) three times, we were keen to see how the Kenyan winning formula works in Tanzania. We were thrilled to find that the bits that should stay consistent (great food, tents, location and hospitality) matched the incredibly high standards, whilst the Serengeti adds something very different from the Mara. Instead of a... More

This was the first stop on our Tanzanian safari after two nights in Giraffe Manor, Nairobi, and Serengeti Bushtops certainly set the highest-possible standards for the remainder of our trip. The location, accommodation, food and service were outstanding. Pantaleo and his team greeted us and treated as old friends and provided us with a truly memorable experience. And that was... More

This was our last stop following 2 weeks in the East African bush. And good thing, because had we started here, we never would have left. The location, accommodations, food, and cocktails were all top, top notch, actually I would give it 6 stars if I could. It was all simply perfect for very discerning travelers who have traveled the... More

This was our first experience of the Serengeti and we were so impressed. Pantaleo and his team were the best we experienced throughout Tanzania. The staff were friendly, attentive and professional. The accommodation was of a very high standard and extremely comfortable and the food was to die for. The free massages were amazing. We loved the remote location, away... More

We left the camp this morning, my wife and I have been blessed to be able to stay in some of the best hotels the world has to offer (The Corinthia,Ritz etc). We can honestly say that this hotel is amongst the best! This is the first time either of us cried when leaving a hotel. I don't think any... More
