The exclusive Serengeti Bushtops combines indulgence and adventure for an unforgettable experience.
This oasis of beautifully crafted tents sits in the breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage Serengeti National Park and blends world-class comfort with a raw, inspiring landscape, rich in extraordinary game. From June to November it’s right in the middle of the wildebeest migration corridor.
Explore the vast plains on game drives in open converted 4×4 vehicles with the camp’s excellent guides and local Kuria spotters. From thrilling bush picnics to enchanting sundowners, the emphasis here is on luxury and unsurpassed service – together with an environmentally sensitive approach. It’s far more than a convenient base from which to explore the rich local landscapes. Enjoy à la carte gourmet meals served in the open-sided mess tent, accompanied by fine wines from the wine wall. There’s also the option to dine in the privacy of your tent. Afterwards, spend time around the camp fire discussing the day’s sightings with the rangers and fellow guests.
The contemporary wooden-floored tents with canvas canopy are simply huge. Raised off the ground, their lavish facilities include an en suite shower area, 24-hour power supply and a private hot tub on the deck providing the perfect place to unwind as the sun goes down. From each tent you’re guaranteed a view of sunset over the Serengeti, and your private butler is on-call 24 hours a day to assist with bringing refreshments, filling your hot tub, or anything else you require. For families, a huge double tent consists of two tents linked by a bridge. Younger guests can also enjoy the camp’s latest addition: the Bushcraft Challenge, with a range of activities based around survival skills, local culture, conservation and flora and fauna.
Visit out of peak season (November to April) for a quieter, more romantic experience. You’ll still see all the resident game thanks to the camp’s close proximity to the Mara River and there’s hardly any vehicle traffic.
Unwind in your hot tub on the deck of your luxury tent, sipping a sundowner and looking out over the bush as the sun sets in a haze of orange and pink. When night falls, the camp glows with the light of a scattering of lanterns, and you can sip drinks under the stars by the campfire – magical.”
