“It doesn't get better than this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

I stayed at Ubuntu in The Serengeti 4 weeks after it opened and it was perfect from the beginning to the end. The staff are very friendly, helpful and proud. The setting is truly magnificent. The 6 tents are beautiful and the hot water bottle in the bed at night was a touch of genius detail, as it can get quite cool at night. It was many many years ago that I had a hot water bottle in my bed!! The food was excellent and the collective meals great. But above all it was a true touch of Africa with an all Tanzanian staff. Mark, the manager asked me when I left what should be improved and I could quite honestly not think of one single thing. (Keep it a camp with very limited mobile and internet reception! Preferably an internet and mobile free zone.) Go now, treat yourself and enjoy the vast silent plains!!

Room Tip: Depends how safe you feel. I had the outer tent and I loved the feeling of space.

The Ubuntu camp was a highlight of our African adventure. It was a perfect combination of "real Africa" with world class service. The staff were absolutely outstanding and did everything to ensure that our visit was special.

Great food, great setting and plenty of adventure.

While there we saw the migration of the wildebeest crossing the Mara river. Most made it across, but a few drowned or were gobbled by crocodiles.
