#1 of 3 hotels in Serengeti National Park
Set in the midst of an incredible scenery of savannah and skies, you find Ikoma Tented Camp, sheltered in a grove of acacia trees. Ikoma has 35 traditional semi-luxury Meru tents, each under thatch with a private veranda overlooking the impressive plains of the Serengeti. The central restaurant and bar area boast a large camp fire an ideal spot to unwind with a chilled drink after a long days of exciting game viewing.Ikoma Tented Camp is ideally situated at the border of the world-renowned Serengeti National Park, along the path of the migrating wildebeests between Kenya and Tanzania. From Ikoma you can enter the western corridor of the park, taking in Kirawira and the Grumeti river home to the giant wildebeest eating crocodiles. There is no better place to enjoy one of the world's greatest wildlife spectacles.Staying at Ikoma Tented Camp gives you the unique opportunity to enjoy a night game drive or a walking safari, as the camp is located just outside the national park boundary. A great chance to see and hear some of the nocturnal animals that can’t be spotted in daytime, such as the Leopard, Aardvark and the Bat-eared fox. Another special way of experiencing the bush is by going along on a guided walking safari. Guided by a professional ranger and guard you discover the bush and its inhabitants at close range. A great way to start or end a day in the Serengeti, followed by a breakfast in the bush or a sun downer at the close of the day.The airstrip a short distance away from the camp means you can be with us in next to no time and avoid the long drive through the park should you prefer a shorter journey.

We had two nights here and really felt it was atmospheric and welcoming. The staff were extremely nice and the tents were very comfortable and spacious. You really need your bug spray around here and a torch is helpful but thats to be expected. We'd be happy to return.

Ikoma is a pleasant address to stay. The tents are neat, the beds fine. The restaurant is excellent, the staff are friendly and helpful. We found that the guidance of a guard to your tent is necessary. One morning two lions were found to be barely 200 meters from our tent!

We were booked in here as part of a safari trip. It was advertised as luxurious. There was absolutely no luxury about it. The tented accommodation had no electricity points in them so all phones, tablets etc had to be left in the lounge to be charged. Also the only way I could dry my hair was to use my hairdryer in front of everyone in the lounge. Unacceptable. There was no hot water in the tents, you had to order it the night before and on both mornings we were there the water was half an hour late in coming which affected our game drives. The water had to be poured in by raising a bucket outside. The food was basic, it was difficult to get a drink, several times we ordered drinks and they did not appear. Cannot recommend it.

We loved our 2 night stay in the Ikoma Bush Camp. The thing I loved the most was the overall vibe/feel - you're very much in wild Africa here! Most the other lodges we stayed at were fenced for visitors safety, but Ikoma is a totally unfenced camp. Although it's technically outside the Serengeti, the Serengeti is also unfenced so I counted the view from our tent as looking out over the Serengeti plains, which was incredible! There were wild zebras, impalas, giraffes etc. walking past our tent all the time. At night we heard lions roaring and hyenas laughing and in the morning walked out to see paw prints around our tent. Out of all the places we stayed during our 12 day safari, this one had the best overall "feel" to it. The food was pretty good, but not amazing. The staff felt a bit awkward to me, and it was hard to communicate as most didn't speak great English. There's no power points in the rooms so you can only charge your devices in the restaurant and only in the evening/at dinner, but we didn't really find that to be a problem. We had hot water both nights we were there so were able to have a nice shower no problems. Although I don't think it's a necessity (especially when in the bush), I was very excited when I read the information sheet in our room which said there was internet in the restaurant from 7pm as we'd gone a few days without any wifi and I wanted to check in on how everything was going at home. However when I asked a couple of different staff, both looked confused and told me there was no internet. So that is perhaps something they shouldn't be advertising! Not a huge deal though. There's also no eftpos at the camp so they only take cash, which would have been good to know before we went so we could have brought some more with us (we would have loved to have done a night drive!) Overall though our experience here was very good and I'd definitely stay again.
