Set in the midst of an incredible vista of savannah and skies, sheltered in a grove of acacia trees is Ikoma Tented Camp (formerly Ikoma Bush Camp). Simplicity and rusticity create the ambiance of the camp. Ikoma benefited from an upgrade in which the camp was outfitted with new tents and attached bathrooms.
Ideally situated along the path of the migrating wildebeest between Kenya and Tanzania, Ikoma Tented Camp is situated at the border of the world-renowned Serengeti National Park. There you will find yourself on probably one of the best game drives in the area – along the western corridor of the park, taking in Kirawira and the Grumeti river – home to the infamous wildebeest-eating giant crocodiles. There is no better place to take in one of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles.
The Ikoma Tented Camp airstrip, a short distance away from the camp means you can be at the camp in next to no time and avoid the long drive through the park should you prefer a shorter journey.
Ikoma Tented Camp has 31 semi-luxury traditional Meru tents each under thatch with its own en-suite bathroom: shower, flush toilet, wash hand basin, soap, towels, bottled water, Mosquito nets, mosquito coils, candles & matches, modern furnishings, and a private veranda.
Restaurant & Bar
The central restaurant and bar area boast a large camp fire – an ideal spot to unwind with a drink after a long days exciting game viewing.
Night Game Drives
As the camp is located just outside the Serengeti national park boundary it is possible to do night drives and guided game walks. The night drives are a unique opportunity to see some of the nocturnal animals that one usually only hears about, such as Leopard, Aardvark and Bat-eared foxes. Learn and experience first hand the sounds of the African bush at night – very different from the daytime scene!
A game walk with an armed ranger is an incredibly exciting and safe way to experience the bush and its inhabitants at close range. Choose an early morning walk followed by breakfast in the bush or sundowners at the close of the day.
