The location was good and the view from the upstairs restaurant was lovely. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom huge. Very happy with the accommodation, but not so the food and the service, both of which were poor.

This was part of our Safari camp tour. The location is excellent, middle of the park and we often had elephants on property. Beautiful sunset. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Food was good and plentiful. We only stayed 1 night.

Charming "tented camp" (actually, they are wooden huts) placed in an unbeatable spot in the african savannah (Serengeti). As it has no fences, it gives you a feeling of being part of the nature and wild. Highly advisable for those who like to feel integrated in the environment without having to renounce confortability. Unforgettable are the times around the campfire... More

We stayed for two nights in Ikoma Sarafi Camp in a wood house with bath and a water toilet. Everything was nice and clean. Food was good and the manager was very nice and we had interesting discussions by the fire. In the night it was wonderful to listen to the wild animals and crickets. An the sleep peacefully!

A great place to stay for watching elephants walk past your tent and giraffe and zebra. The staff were so friendly and explained how the camp worked. Only solar power so no ice with the gin and tonic!! The food was excellent. The staff are very conscious of security as there are no fences around but walked you back to... More

This is an experience! We stayed 2 nights here while on safari in the Serengeti. The tented rooms are spacious even with a king size bed and have their own bathroom with a shower. As expected, conservation is a priority and electricity was conserved between 10pm and about 4am. We were able to charge all of our electronics at the... More

We stayed in this camp for 2 night and would never return again! The place in not safe at all – no fence, so the animals come really close to the huts, which is nice during the day, when you can take pictures of them, but not necessary in the night, when there are lions roaring outside while you are...

loved this little gem in Ikoma. The rustic atmosphere is superb to relax in. Pepe the owner is very entertaining and remember that he is from Barcelona and is an ardent Barca fan. The environment is nice and we enjoyed it throughly. Will surely return

We camped here just for a night on our way to Ngorongoro. The best thing about this camp was that it was in the middle of the wilderness of Serengeti. There was no fencing and that gave us a feeling off being in the middle of the forest. While the receptionist was a little uptight, the restaurant staff was very... More

When we booked our safari, we had told our tour operator we wanted a variety of lodges as we wanted to experience different atmospheres while on the safari. This was definitely the most rustic of the places we stayed, but it was very nice. Pepe is quite the character and is very nice and easy to talk to and to... More
