About
Description
Mbugani Camps Tent Camp, in the famed Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, is the way camping should be! Each of the 15 spacious tents (Number of tents varies by season; we also have mobile tent camps that More follow the Great Migration. Please inquire at our website if you would like to find out more about our mobile camps) are furnished in hardwood and wicker furniture, comfortable queen-sized beds (king for honeymooners!), en suite bathrooms with flush toilets, roomy showers (not bucket showers!), charging stations for your electronics, rugs on the floors, all while being set in the bush and close to the animals. Mbugani has Wifi, is solar-powered, with a back-up generator and hot and cold running water are available all day (with 5 minute lead-time on hot water needs). Fantastic food and full bar featuring wines from South Africa. Each evening a campfire is lit for your "Sundowner", a magical place to enjoy a beverage and "bites" with other guests. Imagine yourself here. We do. Less
