Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp, Tanzania

If you want to be on the route of the great wildebeest migration across the Serengeti or, if you like the idea of a camp that overlooks a busy hippo pool, you should stay at Grumeti Serengeti.

Make this vibrant tented camp part of your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Tanzania and you will have the perfect vantage point from which to experience the awesome sight and the thunderous noise of upwards of two million wildebeest, zebra and eland stampeding across one of Africa’s mightiest plains. You’ll also be able to watch giant, comedic pods of resident hippos wallowing in pools from the comfort of your tent, and observe some of the continent’s biggest crocodile gliding surreptitiously through a lawn – a floating garden of water cabbage.
