21 days in Tanzania and this was the worst,. Most of the tents where in poor condition. They didn't have any items in stock everything was out. The food was ok, we did have ants in our lunch boxes(not just a few) that is all I have to say about that. We ended up changing rooms as our bathroom was... More

This camp was 3 km outside of the Serengeti Park and the accommodation was what I had expected. These are tents covered by a thatched roof which had seen better days. Thrilled to find a built bathroom at the back of the tent.There was hot water at certain times. Lovely verandah where you could sit and watch any passing wildlife.... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Ikoma tented camp. The camp was very nice. Good location close to the national park gates. We saw bucks and some large birds wandering very close to our tent. Exciting ☺ Since it is unfenced they provide good security around the camp. Even when u have to walk back to your... More

This was the only disappointing stay during our 12 day safari trip. The rooms were fine, beds were comfortable. The shower was less of a shower and more of a series of cold drips, and while I understand we were in a tented camp, a nomadic bush camp we stayed at a few days later had a shower that was... More

Marvelous place with great safari atmosphere, very comfortable facilities but mediocre cuisine. No option of less spicy food for kids, the same soup served two evenings, pasta for the lunch box put into ordinary plastic bags. Comparatively to other Tanzanian lodges where we spent the night during our three week tour, Icoma Bush was the less interesting culinary experience. The... More

The tents were comfortable with comfortable beds and an attached bathroom. Lights off during the night so flashlight needed if up after 11pm. The food was not great at any meal. The service was fine-the staff tried really hard to please.

Situated just 5km away fro Serengeti entry gate, this camp fullfilled our African dream. Think grassland, and that's what you will find there. The camp is with 35 tents relatively big, however the grounds are spaceous and the tents are not too close together so that privacy is guaranteed. In the first of our two nights there, a large group... More

We stayed for only one night at this great place right outside the west gate of Serengeti. We found the staff, service and food all amazing! The tent was clean and comfortable with great views of the savanna. Comfortable bed and lovely hot shower. Loved this place!

Just outside the Ikomi Gate to Serengeti NP is a little oasis of muted luxury at the Ikomi Tented Bush Camp. Like the mobile safari camps of yesteryear, Ikomi provides large, heavy tents equipped with comfy beds, chairs and mosquito netting. These tents are permanent, though, and each comes with a large private bath with hot water and flush toilets.... More
