Great tented camp in the Serengeti. From the minute we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The staff were genuine and caring. From the campfire and drinks at 7pm, to the dinner, to the end of the night with a spa tub in your room. An amazing experience. We would have liked to spend another night there. (We stayed 2...

The beauty of the setting is only surpassed by the warmth and friendliness of the staff. The amazing number of animals on display here boggle the mind! This is the time of plenty in the Serengeti where the predators can find food without having to look very hard! The vultures are so full, they have trouble flying! But the real... More

A family of 3, we stayed here for 3 nights in Aug 2016. Our stay here was exceptional. The camp is extremely luxurious. Very tastefully done with great attention to detail. The rooms/tents have amazing views, with wildebeest and zebra grazing around. The sunset from the room is not to be missed. Mr. Pantaleo and his team went out of... More

What an amazing and excellent time we had in this luxury tented camp. I have not seen any more beautiful well fitted tents like this in Africa before. The service is great and waking up very safe while buffalo is roaming around is the best Serengeti experience you may wish for. Excellent food choices and very friendly staff took well... More

Bushtops was our first stop in the Serengeti and a lovely one at that. We were met at the airstrip by our guide Richard. He was super friendly and welcomed us with wine and snacks while he prepared some paperwork. The drive from the airstrip to the Camp is not a short one and as a few other reviewers stated... More

We had the good fortune and privilege of staying with the Dario and his team during our honeymoon- simply spectacular service and luxury on a beautiful landscape!

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon (this review is embarrassingly overdue!) in August 2014 and were totally blown away by it - it is the most magical place we have ever stayed and we would return in a heartbeat!

This is my second stay at Serengeti Bushtops and it was as good, if not better than before. This was also the second time that I had the camp to myself and it just blows me away that they maintain such a high standard with only one person there. The restaurant was always beautifully set up as though we were... More
