Grumeti River Camp
OverviewGrumeti Serengeti Tented Camp is set in the remote 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 spectacular pied colobus monkeys (found nowhere else in the Serengeti) and enjoy nocturnal serenades by orchestras of owls and bushbabies.
Every year between 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.
Wild and RemoteNestled among tall evergreen trees on the water’s edge, Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp offers a wild and remote experience in the thick of the animal action. Set on the banks of an oxbow lake formed by the Grumeti River, the Camp provides the perfect vantage point to enjoy the unique sight of the vast masses of the Great Migration making their dramatic river crossing. Dense riverside thickets hide a multitude of secrets and delights, from the acrobatic antics of colobus monkeys to the brilliant plumage of dozens of bird species.
AccommodationStep into a blaze of colour in one of only ten flamboyant tents tucked under shady palm frond roofs. Bright, whimsical interiors welcome and invigorate. Vibrant surprises await at every step, from the beaded curtains in the guest areas to the intricate mosaic surfaces of the table tops. Everyday objects acquire a sense of the unusual, with even the spacious outdoor shower shaded from the sun and stars by only a wrought iron dome. Night time becomes an adventure, as hippo call to one another while you lie in the comfort of your king size bed.
