What is Glamping?
Derived from the words ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’, glamping is an outdoor getaway that combines the closeness to nature associated with camping with the luxury and convenience of high-end lodges.
It's a form of outdoor escape that means you don’t need to bring your own tent, sleeping bags and paraphernalia. Instead, you can turn up to ready-pitched accommodation that is already kitted out with all the essentials that you need.
Imagine it: you fall asleep and wake up to the sound of nature right outside your door, never away from the heart of the wilderness, your creature comforts always within reach.
Our Top Glamping Spots
Legendary Tented Camp
The epitome of an “Out of Africa” safari camp, Legendary is ideal for those seeking a sublimely comfortable tented experience. The camp’s prime location within the remote region of Nyasirori offers phenomenal wildlife viewing on a year-round basis.
Decor draws inspiration from local tribes and the yellow-gold grasses of the Serengeti, the colour of which is reflected in the linens and textiles, with gentle nature-inspired colours blending into the landscape.
Offering the ultimate in secluded privacy with only 5 tents and one family tent - ideal for multi-generational families - we recommend a three to four nights’ stay to truly savour the freedom of the endless horizon. Perfect for the middle or end of an itinerary.
Lemala Nanyukie Lodge
Lemala Nanyukie is located in the area of the Serengeti that's crossed by the thrilling Great Migration, with outstanding views across these endless plains. The camp itself sits on a grassy savanna dotted with rocky kopjes and shaded by ancient giant acacia trees.
There's high-density game-viewing at all times and the area is well-known for its large concentration of cats, so much so that until recently this area was set aside for scientific research into predators, especially cheetah. As such, Lemala Nanyukie is open year-round.
The 15 luxurious guest tents are spaced well apart for maximum privacy and feature an oversized bed, spacious lounge, generous bathroom with double vanity, indoor and outdoor showers and free-standing bathtub.
Singita Sabora Luxury Tented Camp
Situated in 350,000 acres of protected wilderness in Singita Grumeti, Sabora Tented Camp provides guests with a front-row seat to some of the most prized game viewing on the continent – including the Great Migration.
The camp has nine self-contained suites that all include private pantries, dining and fitness areas, as well as meditation decks, where guests can rest, relax and immerse themselves in wellness activities like outdoor yoga, while outdoor salas with secluded daybeds overlooking one of Sabora’s two waterholes make for uninterrupted game-viewing.
Mpingo Ridge Lodge
When visiting Lemala Mpingo Ridge, you'll enjoy a real sense of wilderness and excellent game viewing. It’s both a relaxing standalone destination and a great place to start a safari in the nearby Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti areas.
The camp sits on top of an escarpment with sweeping views across the perennial Tarangire River and valley below, comprised of 15 spacious tented suites that have been carefully positioned to maximize not only the sensational views but also to take advantage of cooling breezes.
The suites feature en-suite bathrooms, private decks, sunken outside lounges that convert to afternoon siesta beds. (One of the suites has two bedrooms, specially designed for friends and family travelling together.) An additional special feature is the private outside bathtub—perfect for washing away the dust after a day on safari.
Nomad Entamanu Ngorongoro
After following one of the world’s most stunning private driveways, you're brought up to the dizzying edge of elemental Africa with panoramic views spinning forward into the Ngorongoro Crater and back to the Serengeti plains.
The camp is based on sustainability, as is built with all-natural materials from the area. Comprised of seven heated rooms (two of which are family-ready), all have incredible views of the crater to wake up to each morning.
Being located on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, there's an abundance to explore right outside the door. Venture out with a Maasai scout, and explore the crater floor and forests of the highlands teeming with wildlife and unforgettable views.
