What we love about Serengeti Sametu Camp

It's in a unique location - Intentionally built on the secluded eastern edge of Central Serengeti near the Ngare Nanyuki River, the luxury camp offers incredible views of endless horizons dotted with herds of wildlife in complete peace. 

Designed with the wild in mind - Each room is made of a thin canvas to fully immerse you in the beautiful wild as much as possible. Fall asleep and wake up to the music the Serengeti wildlife makes. 

It's an amazing vantage point - Sit on the open lounge under the starry African sky with your evening tipple and share photos of the day with friends, whilst watching herds of elephants pass right by you.

About Karibu Camps and Lodges

The name 'Karibu' directly translates into 'Welcome' in Swahili, and they certainly live up to this name. Each camp and lodge invited you in with Tanzanian charm with comforts and adventure. From your Karibu lodge, experience the most iconic parks that surround it: Serengeti and Ngorongoro. 

Achieving a perfect balance between the wilderness and luxury, Karibu Camps and Lodges is an experience in itself. Embark on safaris on the endless savannah plains, explore the dense forests and traverse over the terrains and grasslands during the day, and come home to unmatched comfort and quality at the heart of it all
