MAPITO TENTED CAMP SERENGETI – SIMPLE BUSH LUXURY
The traditional tented camp is the most authentic kind of accommodation while on safari in Africa. Nothing compares to relaxing in a luxurious tent, listen to the rhythm of nature, take in it’s stunning scenery and observe the amazing wildlife.
13 spacious walk-in tents create an intimate atmosphere for not more than 40 guests. All tents are appointed with running water, flush toilets, hot and cold water showers and also electric lights and mosquito nets. While featuring the amenities of a big lodge, Mapito’s colonial style creates an authentic old days hunter’s camp ambience.
CLOSE TO NATURE
The camp’s name comes from the Swahili word ‘mapito’ which means path or track. And it got its name for good reason, since the annual Wildebeest and Zebra Migration literally passes through the camp. Make yourself comfortable in your luxury tent, accompanied by the laugh of a hyena or the roaring of a lion. Let the day fade away while watching the herds roaming the area. They head north between June and August and again back south from November to January.
Mapito Tented Camp is located at Ikoma, right outside the actual boundaries of Serengeti National Park. This allows guests to go on Bush Walks and Night Game Drives, which are prohibited within the park. Its location in the center of the Serengeti Eco System makes all parts of Serengeti are accessible within short time. Park entrance is just 10 minutes drive away.
Furthermore we organise balloon safaris over the Serengeti plains and other, cultural events upon request. We will also be glad to plan your entire safari for you. Just ask us!
