About Grumeti River Camp

Grumeti River Camp is built amongst tall evergreen trees on the water's edge by the hippo pools. This area supports lush riverine forest in contrast to the plains that characterize most of Serengeti. Migrants mix with the perennial residents including topi, giraffe, buffalo, and the giant Nile crocodiles for which this area is famous.

Accommodation is in ten luxury twin-bedded tents, complete with en-suite bathrooms (comprising shower, sculptured basin and w/c). The ragged thatch canopy lends coolness and solidity to these fantastical safari tents whilst still affording the thrill of the tented safari.  Each tent is decorated in vibrant colours and the furnishings are sculptured locally. The public areas of this intimate safari camp include an open-air covered dining area, a lounge area and domed bar. The domed bar is perfect for sundowners overlooking the river. A secluded sheltered boma ensures star studded romantic dinners. The camp also has a swimming pool and leisure deck - both perched on the banks of the river where guests can view abundant pools of hippo at play. A curio shop and gallery is located near to the reception area.
