Ikoma Wild Camp

Serengeti National Park

Ikoma Wild Camp is our favourite wild camp, where you enjoy the best of everything.

The camp is located right on the outskirts of the north-western section of the Serengeti National Park – in a pocket between the Grumeti and Ikorongo wildlife reserves. This so-called “western corridor” is the central route for the animals’ migration from Serengeti to Masai Mara. The animals wander freely in and out of the reserves, so you are in with a very good chance of seeing elephants, hippos, zebras, antelopes, giraffes, buffaloes and other herbivores directly from the viewing deck of the camp’s restaurant. There are, of course, also lions, cheetahs and leopards, striving to secure themselves a good meal from the large-scale, self-service buffet of animals passing by. During the migration (June–July), you have the opportunity to experience the world-famous migration of 1.2 million gnus – right outside your tent! They wander across the savannah in large herds in search of pastures new.

Located as it is outside the national park, the camp offers experiences you cannot enjoy if you stay in the national park itself.

At Ikoma Wild Camp, you have the option to purchase extras such as a “Walking safari”, a “Sundowner” and, not least, a “Night Game Drive”. These are unique experiences that are only available when you stay outside the Serengeti National Park, where the restrictions are not as tight as in the national park itself.

If you’re up for it, a morning or evening run around the camp can even be arranged. It goes without saying that you will be accompanied by security guards, and the surroundings are absolutely amazing!

When staying at Ikoma Wildcamp, the safaris still take place in the Serengeti National Park. This means that you have a short drive back and forth between the camp and the national park (around 30–45 minutes each way). However, the added possibilities offered by the location away from the strict rules of the national park coupled with the high standard of the camp make the drive absolutely worthwhile.

Option to change
Naturally, if you wish to stay inside the Serengeti National Park, this is also possible. You can (against a supplement) choose to stay at Serengeti Wild Camp or Serengeti Wildebeest Camp.

Each tent also has a small “terrace” outside with garden chairs where you can relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings. There is, in addition, a large communal tent that is used as a dining tent.

Kiboko Lodge

Arusha

At the foot of Mount Meru and just a stone’s throw from Arusha National Park is the cosy Kiboko Lodge.

The lodge is owned by a Dutch organisation that works with street children throughout Tanzania. The children are given an education and the promise of work if they complete a 4-year education programme. The lodge is therefore also run by former street children who have learned how to manage such a business and provide guests with the best possible service.

There are 19 rooms of varying sizes and with different decoration. All the rooms have an en suite bathroom and toilet, a fireplace and a private veranda overlooking the surrounding nature and providing a glimpse of Mt Meru.

The conditions of the street children are not the only thing that the foundation is trying to improve. The environment is also very much in focus throughout. The lodge is primarily powered by solar energy and is built of local materials. Some of the furniture comes from the foundation’s own workshop. The lodge is, of course, also partly self-sufficient when it comes to the food served there: Fruit and vegetables are grown in the lush volcanic soil around the lodge.

The lush surroundings attract a wealth of exotic birds, and the waterhole by the lodge is home to a hippo – “kiboko” in Swahili.


Kigongoni Lodge

Arusha

Situated at a coffee farm, a few kilometres outside Arusha, is the cosy Kigongoni Lodge.

It has 18 huts, spread out over the property, all offering excellent privacy as a result. Built in traditional African style, the huts embrace local, natural materials. All huts have en suite bathrooms, mosquito nets over the bed, a fireplace and a lovely veranda from which you can enjoy the view of the coffee plants, exotic trees, bushes and – on a clear day – Mount Meru or Mount Kilimanjaro.

The lodge has its own kitchen garden and meals are enjoyed in the cosy restaurant. The bar has chilled drinks at the ready and doesn’t close until the last guest has retired for the night.

Enjoy the pool or go on excursions, if you don’t simply want to relax and read a good book overlooking Kilimanjaro.


Osiligilai Maasai Lodge

Moshi/Kilimanjaro

Get right up close to the Masai culture at this charming, authentic lodge, which is nestled in the most stunning scenery of Masai country – and midway between Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro. The lodge is owned and run by the Masai, and a stay here is a unique opportunity to really get close to this semi-nomadic people.

There are 11 huts, all built in traditional Masai style – though with the exception that they have every conceivable convenience such as electricity, a toilet, running water and a hot shower.

All of the huts are charmingly appointed in Masai style with lovely, colourful, handmade beads hanging from the ceiling, beautiful baskets on the walls and bedspreads in the most beautiful Masai colours. The huts are available in various sizes, offering room for the couple who want their own cabin or for the family that wishes to sleep together in the same hut.  All the huts are positioned so that you can enjoy the sunrise over Kilimanjaro early in the morning.

The communal areas include a cosy restaurant overlooking Kilimanjaro and a lovely pool with sun loungers, where you can lie in the sun or shade while enjoying the views of Africa’s highest mountain. The food served in the restaurant is organic and almost all the ingredients are grown locally.

A wide range of activities is offered at the lodge, but you can also choose simply to loosen your muscles after a safari or trekking in the lodge’s sauna.

Wi-Fi is available on most days in the communal areas.


Africa Safari Camp

Selous

Located just outside the gate into Selous Game Reserve is the cosy Africa Safari Camp.

The camp consists of 21 bungalows – so-called bandas – of various sizes. They are all individually situated in a large garden with the pool area at the centre of it all.

The bandas are rustic but pleasantly decorated in classic Tanzanian style. They all have their own bathroom, mosquito nets, ceiling fan and electricity. Please note, however, that the camp’s electricity comes from solar cells, so there is not power around the clock.

Meals are enjoyed in the cosy restaurant, and the reception is often the natural gathering point at different times of the day. It’s the only place where there is Wi-Fi (to the extent African internet allows).

In the evening, you will be escorted to your bungalow by a Masai warrior. The camp is not fenced in, and it’s not unusual for elephants, etc., to come through the camp at night!


Selous Riverside Safari Camp

Selous

Just outside Selous Game Reserve is the cosy Selous Riverside Safari Camp. From here, it is easy both to go on a safari inside the game reserve and to go on exciting river safaris on the Rufiji river, which the lodge is situated next to.

One of the major draws of the lodge is its lovely terrace, which affords a beautiful view of the river and the abundant wildlife. After a day of wonderful experiences, you can sit down in one of the soft chairs on the terrace and enjoy a cold drink while the sun sets over the river. The eager chirping of the birds blends with the grunting of the hippos – it doesn’t get more African than that!

The camp consists of 14 canvas tents, all of which are large, cosy and very well appointed. There is a lovely bathroom with shower and plenty of hot water. There is plenty of room for luggage in the tent, and you have electricity 24 hours a day. In front of the tent, you have your own veranda with sun loungers from which you can watch life go by around the river.

If you tire of lazing in a chair, or if you need to cool off, you can jump into the small pool, from which there is also a nice view of the Rufiji River.

Meals are served in the restaurant, which adjoins the terrace – so you can enjoy river views while eating, too.


Springlands Hotel

Moshi

Springlands Hotel is located on the southern slopes of Kilimanjaro close to the town of Moshi. It’s an ideal base for mountain rambles and safaris on Kilimanjaro.

The hotel provides high standards of service with a modern swimming pool, beautiful gardens bars indoors and outdoors and spacious rooms with showers and mosquito nets.

Springlands Hotel is named after the local freshwater springs. The springs are fed by rain and melted snow from Kilimanjaro.


Tent camp on Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro

There is a primitive shared public toilet at the camp. It is possible to rent a toilet tent.

Price for rental of a toilet tent: USD 100


Huts on the Marangu route

Kilimanjaro

The huts can house 6-8 people and are equipped with bunk beds and plain mattresses. You must bring your own warm sleeping bag. (You can rent a sleeping bag at the Springlands Hotel, if you don’t want to bring one yourself.) You will share a dining area and toilets with the other mountaineers.

Note that conditions at these huts are very primitive.  The Mandara huts and Horombo huts have running water, but the Kido huts do not.

Each camp can house up to approx. 120 guests at a time.

No private huts are available.
