At Serengeti Sametu Camp, guests can expect a balance between a wild safari experience and the comfort of luxury hospitality. The camp’s sophisticated suites offer stunning views of the surrounding grasslands, while the crackling campfire provides a cozy setting for evening gatherings. The camp features spacious and comfortable lounge and dining areas where guests can share their safari stories, observe wildlife with binoculars, and enjoy meals under the African night sky.
The Seronera Valley in central Serengeti, where the camp is located, is known for its abundance of resident wildlife throughout the year. The combination of the valley’s rivers and resident prey supports a thriving population of predators, including lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas. As these carnivores maintain their territories year-round, guests have the opportunity to witness incredible wildlife encounters regardless of the season or the location of the large migratory herds. The dry season, from July to October, is particularly exciting as the competition for food increases, leading to dynamic hunting scenes.
