Famed for its vast tree-less grasslands and excellent wildlife sightings, the endless open plains of the magnificent Serengeti National Park boast 35 species of plains-dwelling game and prolific birdlife. Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp is set in the remote western reaches of the Park, on a bywater of the Grumeti River, known for its wildebeest crossings and enormous Nile crocodiles. Tucked into a strip of riverine forest, guests thrill to the antics of resident hippo and spectacular pied colobus monkeys (found nowhere else in the Serengeti). Every year in June and July, Africa’s annual Great Migration passes through Grumeti, and hundreds upon thousands of wildebeest, zebra and other herbivores cross the Grumeti River, risking the jaws of some of Africa’s largest crocodiles.

Welcome to Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp
We are excited to announce that a refurbishment is underway at our much-loved &Beyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp. We will remain closed for the duration of the renovation and can’t wait to welcome you back in December 2021.
Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp is ideally situated on the banks of a tributary of the Grumeti River. The proximity to water draw a profusion of game looking for water and seasonal resident hippo pods can be seen in the river pools, right in from your tents.
Located in the remote western reaches of the Serengeti, there are few other lodges here, and one rarely sees other vehicles. This makes for an exceptional game viewing experiences with the feeling of the ultimate exclusivity.
Rustic yet sophisticated, this camp has a warmth to it that make you feel at home and part of the family. All ten of the tented suites feature shaded private veranda’s that look out over the river frontage. Big day beds make this the perfect place to while away the afternoon. The interiors combine hues of wildebeest grey with accents of natural stone and bone, and stone shower towers are open to the sun and stars. Intimate guest areas include open-fronted sitting and dining areas, as well as a domed bar, all adorned with glass pendants and whimsical touches.
Spacious decks are perfect for enjoying sundowners overlooking the river and the camp’s rim-flow swimming pool provides a view of the seasonal hippo pools below. Meals can be enjoyed in a variety of dining areas and traditional fires known as jikos produce mouth-watering aromas. The sounds of the African night provides a gentle backdrop to tales of the day’s safaris. Game drives from the camp can expect to encounter large lion prides and clans of hyena, big herds of resident plains game and black and white colobus monkeys, found nowhere else in the Serengeti.
LEAVING OUR WORLD A BETTER PLACE
We have reduced our impact through the installation of a water purifying
plant to eliminate plastic water bottles, and an inverter to reduce fuel usage.
With Africa Foundation we invest in conservation lessons, education
and healthcare in communities near the park.
Why we love it
Situated in some of the most remote and beautiful corners of the Serengeti, this is perhaps one of its best kept secrets. In this part of the park, with far fewer crowds and vehicles, wildlife lovers and nature enthusiasts can largely enjoy their own private Serengeti.
IMPRESSIVE LION PRIDES
This part of the Serengeti is known for its big lion prides consisting of between 20 and up to 60 lions. Not only are the opportunities for seeing lion in the western Serengeti excellent, but you will more often than not find yourself alone on a sighting.
AFRICA’S LARGEST LAKE
Visit the celebrated Lake Victoria, Africa’s biggest lake. Engage in a diverse range of experiences that expose you to the traditional fishing communities of the lake gaining an understanding of the culture of this important expanse of water.
PERFECT FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS
The Serengeti National Park is a tapestry of landscapes, dominated by vast plains. In the western corner, the verdant beauty of the Grumeti riverine valley is offset against the grandeur of the grassy plains. The legendary sunrises and sunsets are a photographer’s paradise.
