Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp Western Corridor
The Grumeti River Camp (Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp) is nestled under large trees along a branch of the Grumeti River. Guests stay in one of the ten tents, each furnished and decorated in elegant African style and equipped with an en-suite bathroom, open-air shower, ventilator and large deck.
A pool can be found at the main building, from where wallowing hippo may also be observed. The dining area, bar and lounge face the river; a large deck and boma (fireplace) provide the ideal setting for dinner under the stars.
The camp is located five minutes’ drive from the local airstrip in the Serengeti National Park’s Western Corridor, 50 km east of Lake Victoria and 450 km west of Arusha.
The Grumeti already flows quite strongly here. Perched on the very edge of the river, guests can see and hear the nearby hippo from within the camp.
A visit to Grumeti River Camp is most rewarding during the Great Migration when wildebeest and zebra cross the river on their journey north. The crocodiles living in the Grumeti are of epic proportions and many of them only feed once a year when the migration crosses the Grumeti River.
The camp offers game drives and organises a trip to Lake Victoria or a balloon trip over the Serengeti at extra cost.
Permanent camps do not change location and therefore have a better infrastructure than mobile camps.Mobile Camps
Mobile camps operate in the Sereangeti and change their location two or three times a year following the Great Migration of the wildebeest and zebra. Mobile camps have a simpler, bush-like character. Although the rooms have an en-suite bathroom, there is often no running water in the rooms. Bathrooms are then equipped with a so-called bucket shower that needs to be filled with hot water by the camp team on demand.
