The best camp to be in when your in central serengeti The thrilling feeling you get when sleeping and hearing the roar of a lion and having buffalos outside your tent the best adventours experience. The beds were comfy and warm blankets, hot water and great out door sitting to watch the sunset. The entire staff was soo sweet and welcoming , great hospitality. The best and memorable experience. Mbugani camp the best I have been to.
This small camp of tent cabins in the central Serengeti was a favorite for our small group. Whether it was the super delicious and bountiful (and very vegetarian friendly) meals, the gracious and welcoming staff, or the intimate setting, we were completely charmed. Enjoying a glass of wine by a small bonfire while listening to the sound of lions in the night was simply unforgettable.
Stayed here for 3 nights while on African Safari. All accommodations where well maintained and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful . The food was the best I had on the trip. They even helped us celebrate 2 birthdays with singing , dancing and a birthday cake.
Love this camp! We stayed at both the mobil camp in Northern Serengeti and the permanent location in central Serengeti. We truly enjoyed our stay. The staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The food was really good, complete with a BBQ dinner and a beautiful lunch in the fields where Armani the giraffe visited us! Lydia the camp's manager was outstanding! We will be back!
We were lucky enough to have Mbugani Tented Lodge booked as part of our safari. It is a perfect quiet oasis in the middle of wilderness next to the Seronera River. The permanent tents are spacious and comfortable with good sized bathrooms with flushing toilets and hot water showers. The nights we stayed it was fairly cold but lots of blankets kept us warm and it was lovely falling asleep to the sound of grunting hippos and lions. There is a bloat of hippos a 5 minute walk from the camp which we got to visit one morning and stayed ages watching them which we loved. They also have local buffalo watching the camp from across the river, and one buffalo who apparently likes wondering through the camp. He calmly walked past one evening (10-15m away) while we were sitting around the outdoor fire - checked us out - and then wandered on. They have large bar and restaurant tents on platforms decked out with proper furniture. Breakfasts are generous and varied. Dinners were also great - we had a fantastic goat and chicken bbq - nyama choma - as our Xmas dinner. Staff are so lovely and friendly. And we had some great safari drives in the area - even being lucky enough to spot a leopard which apparently tends to stay in the area - so your chance of seeing one is good. Can’t recommend Mbugani highly enough - we wish we could have stayed longer!…
