The tented camp was located right outside the Serengeti National Park which made it easy to access the park early morning each day of our stay. The tents were big and well equipped with a bathroom area with no roof. The common areas and the restaurant was not far from the tents, and had wifi. The food was absolutely great... More

Mapito Tented Camp was a surprise for us. We didn't expect such great facilities in the middle of the bush. The tents are amazing, super comfortable and with a open-air private shower. A great experience after a long day in the safari. The location is also very good, just a few minutes away from the Ikoma Gate. The food was... More

The location of this camp was great, near the Ikoma gate. The tents were really nice. The food was good considering they are cooking in the middle of nowhere. The best part of the experience however was the excellent welcoming staff. They did everything to make my stay more personal from engaging in conversations about anything and everything to showing...

We had 2 wonderful nights here as part of our safari in Tanzania. The tents are very well appointed with every possible facility, including an open air (but totally private) shower which is very welcome after a dusty day on safari. The comfortable bed ensures a great night's sleep. Meals are buffet style - excellent, tasty food. Staff are welcoming... More

As we were on honeymoon our maid of honor had arranged for a romantic candlelight dinner in the bush: we'd been served by our own dedicated waiter, had a great menu and in the end our own private Massai tribal dance (a bit touristy and...

We enjoyed our two nights stay in Mapito. It was a very nice change after staying in lodges. Some of us were a bit scared of snakes and spiders but there was nothing to worry about☺. We enjoyed very much to be closer to savannah hearing the noise of bats, hyenas, etc. The tents were very clean and cosy with... More

Very beautiful camp with very nice owners. You feel really in the middle of wildness. The tents are very good equipped and very nice decorated. The bathroom has no roof so you have to go to the toilet and shower on free air, but still in a private area. Therefore we recommend to have the shower on the evening as... More
