About

#47 of 172 Specialty lodging in Serengeti National Park
Travelers' Choice
The Serengeti Sametu camp offers your experience the perfect balance between a safari in the wild and the comfort of luxury hospitalities. Intentionally situated in a secluded part of the eastern edge of Central Serengeti, a fairly small distance from the Ngare Nanyuki River, our luxury boutique accommodation never ceases to gift you with an endless horizon silhouetted by grazing wildebeest, zebra, and various antelope species, as well as several hundred bird species gliding from one acacia tree to the next in search for suitable nesting space.

An absolutely amazing view and the best staff you’ll find anywhere. The location alone is worth it because you are only a short drive away from cat viewing which saves an enormous amount of time. Book through Unique Safaris and pick Chris! He knows everything

Property's Favorite Review
We stayed for 3 nights at Karibu Serengeti Sametu camp in May, it is a very inviting and comfortable place. We stayed in the cabins that are the ultimate luxury that one can get in the middle of Serengeti. The staff is as professional, courteous and helpful as can be. The food was amazing, we had packed lunch that was beyond my expectations. Jonas the camp manger is always ready to take care of all your needs planning your safaris, getting packed lunch ready, dinner, breakfast, drinks for that matter all your needs. Our driver Nurule arranged by the camp was perfect, he made every day we went for a safari special for us. I would recommend Karibu camp to anyone who is looking for a luxurious Serengeti Safari experience where the management and employees will make this experience a memory to last.

This was my accommodation near the serengeti. This place is pure luxury, I stayed in one of the cabins vs the tents and the cabin was impeccable, the view in the morning and the sunset over the serengeti was absolutely beautiful. The staff added to the perfection of this stay. Jonas the mgr runs the establishment was such professionalism and goes out of his way to make you at home. Barick also added to the charm. The food was also great. This place was the best hotel of all my vacation in kenya, tanzania, and zanzibar. Hats off to them

I visited this camp with my family which we consist of 4 adults and a toddler. We were given the choice to either go 2 individual homes or a family home. We first decided to go into the individual homes. The individual homes were exquisite and the rooms were amazing actually, but the downside was our homes were so far apart , and because of a lack of WiFi we couldn't communicate at all. So we requested the team to take us to the family house, they never made me feel that it will be difficult which is one of the main reason I'm giving them a 5 star. They have accommodated all our queries and delivered. One of the down sides is that the family home wasn't as beautiful as the individual homes we have seen, but we appreciated having be close to our family to communicate and close enough to the lobby to get WiFi haha. All in all their staff were extremely friendly and always helpful and considerate of all our needs for the safari. The food was excellent actually, they let you feel very homey and tasty. I believe I would definitely be recommending a stay in this camp if you want the best service in town.

We stayed for 2 nights in this Camp. Everything was great: from the size of the room, to the cleanliness, to the food , both buffet and packed. The staff were really kind and accommodating, they made our stay wonderful. We were a family of 4 + 1 toddler we stayed in a family room that had 2 separate rooms and a living room in between. They provided a crib on request. The only downside is that there is no cellular connection or WiFi in the rooms, only in the reception area. Nevertheless, I still recommend this place for families to stay while exploring Serengeti.
