We spent two nights in Mapito during our stay in the Serengeti in September 2015. As we were on honeymoon our maid of honor had arranged for a romantic candlelight dinner in the bush: we'd been served by our own dedicated waiter, had a great menu and in the end our own private Massai tribal dance (a bit touristy and...

We enjoyed our two nights stay in Mapito. It was a very nice change after staying in lodges. Some of us were a bit scared of snakes and spiders but there was nothing to worry about☺. We enjoyed very much to be closer to savannah hearing the noise of bats, hyenas, etc. The tents were very clean and cosy with...

Very beautiful camp with very nice owners. You feel really in the middle of wildness. The tents are very good equipped and very nice decorated. The bathroom has no roof so you have to go to the toilet and shower on free air, but still in a private area. Therefore we recommend to have the shower on the evening as...

Staying in the Mapito Tented Camp certainly enhanced our safari. Small camp with very clean & comfortable tents: sleeping quarters, separate dressing areas, and enclosed outdoor bathrooms- very cool. The main Lodge for dining & relaxing was beautiful - built following a large hut design with woven domed ceiling. The food was buffet style - excellent - wonderful variety -...

The Mapito Tented Camp was a two night stop for my wife and I on the Serengeti leg of our Safari Honeymoon...and wow, I could have stayed here forever! The location is just incredible! Only a short drive from the Serengeti National Park, so the camp is not in the National Park, but it is still in the Serengeti, so...

This camp was right outside of the park entrance, along the path of the wildebeest migration. You could hear them at night. The rooms were beautiful, the staff friendly, the bathrooms gorgeous, the food great. I also learned how to shoot a bow and arrow! Wonderful.
