We stayed two nights at Ikoma Bush Camp. This is really in the middle of nature with good tents (containing very large double beds and our private small gekko in the bathroom) spread out around the large thatched central hut. After dark you are escorted by armed guards on the pathways. After an excellent four course dinner in a candlelight atmosphere we sat around a campfire outside the hut and talked with two of the guards. At night we heard hyenas crying, apart from the great variety of birds and other unidentifiable sounds. The staff is very accomodating and helpful and we would not have minded another night or two - the more so, as on the 2nd day we had the place to ourselves. Low season at its best.

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. ... more less
