This was a unique and unforgettable stay. We were in up market tents with open roofed en suite stone bathrooms, and felt like we were one step from nature - and we were. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It provided a necessary haven of rest after long days exploring the Serengeti.

Our night safari was great, seeing, - spring hare (like a mini kangaroo), serval cat, the hyena's den (incl. an injured hyena), rabbits, bat eared fox. Was great to see animals that you cannot see during the...

We had high expectation for mapito from the web site and other trip advisor reviews . We were a bit dissapointed. The location compare to other lodges had nothing memorable and at the time we went the land behind the property was burned and it was smelling. The major problem for us was that it was located very far from...

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...

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...

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.
