When we heard we were staying in tents on our safari my husband grimaced and i trembled .he has an inherited loathing of such accommodation having suffered from a father who insisted on taking him on long camping treks into the New Zealand bush . Luckily this place was glamping with four poster beds with nets with no holes . The best hot showers I had experienced in tazania quite remarkable in the middle of the dry Serengeti in a morrocan inspired polished concrete ensuite ! Yes ensuite to the tent . The food was remarkable in its adherence to an English colonial menu produced hundreds of miles from civilisation if the meat was a little chewy ! The highlight however were the charming staff particularly Joseph the guards and the lovely Masai guard who couldn't stop smiling we sat and talked into the night by a huge campfire quaffing beer and disturbed only by the occasional hyena cackling in the bus or a civet cat attempting to sneak past us. We came in rainy season but were told at peak season that the giraffes and gazelles regularly turn up for breakfast which is offered in the divine dining tent which is very romantic . This place was my second favourite on the tour

Ikoma has 35 traditional semi-luxury Meru tents, each under thatch with a private veranda overlooking the impressive plains of the Serengeti. The central restaurant and bar area boast a large camp fire an ideal spot to unwind with a chilled drink after a long days of exciting game viewing.Ikoma Tented Camp is ideally situated at the border of the world-renowned Serengeti National Park, along the path of the migrating wildebeests between Kenya and Tanzania. From Ikoma you can enter the western corridor of the park, taking in Kirawira and the Grumeti river home to the giant wildebeest eating crocodiles. There is no better place to enjoy one of the world's greatest wildlife spectacles.Staying at Ikoma Tented Camp gives you the unique opportunity to enjoy a night game drive or a walking safari, as the camp is located just outside the national park boundary. A great chance to see and hear some of the nocturnal animals that can’t be spotted in daytime, such as the Leopard, Aardvark and the Bat-eared fox. Another special way of experiencing the bush is by going along on a guided walking safari. Guided by a professional ranger and guard you discover the bush and its inhabitants at close range. A great way to start or end a day in the Serengeti, followed by a breakfast in the bush or a sun downer at the close of the day.The airstrip a short distance away from the camp means you can be with us in next to no time and avoid the long drive through the park should you prefer a shorter journey. ... more less
