We recently stayed at Buffalo Luxury Camp for 4 nights. What an incredibly beautiful, unique place! Their name doesn't lie at all. They truly are a luxury camp! Our "tent" had hardwood floors, a king-sized bed and a bathroom I wish I had in my own house! The setting is awesome. You're part-way up a mountain overlooking the Serengeti. Each...

We stayed at the Buffalo Luxury cam for 2 nights in September at the end of a week's stay in Tanzania. We had seen the 'Big Five' and the migration. The camp is just outside the National Park and we went on two night safari drives which were amazing. The camp itself was very well furnished and luxurious with stunning...

The Buffalo Luxury Camp was the second tented lodge that we visited during our safari (Lemala Kuria Hills being the first) in the Serengeti. Yes, it is tented, but it's far from roughing it. The accommodations are first class, with a beautiful, spacious bathroom, comfortable beds, and a view that is spectacular, to say the least. The main lodge area...

Our first camp in the Serengeti started off on a high note as it was spent at the tantalizing Buffalo Luxury Camp. The accommodations emoted African style and class. The staff was warm, attentive and intuitive to our needs. An unexpected adventure or two was thrown in for good measure. We took a walking safari with almost as many guides...

They're not bluffing when they call it a "luxury" camp. Buffalo Luxury Camp on the edge of Serengeti in Tanzania is an upscale tent camp set against the hills and looking out across the Serengeti Plain. The tents are spacious and very comfortable--not at all what you'd expect from a camping tent. For one thing, once you step across the...

From the moment we stepped on the plane to the moment we left, the experience at Buffalo Luxury Camp was amazing.

This is a luxury property. The tents are large, with a beautiful bathroom and as much hot water as you want. Food is excellent, and overall a very comfortable stay just outside the northern entrance to the Serengeti. A highlight is the possibility of a night safari.

We stayed at the camp for two days. We were received by Neil, the manager, who was very friendly and helpful, organizing all our activities.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An essential stopover on any extraordinary safari experience is Buffalo Luxury Camp which is located close by Kleins Gate on the edge of the Serengeti National Park. Buffalo Luxury Camp is a permanent tented camp consisting of 15 tents, each of which is equipped with a lounge, raised bedroom area and bathroom with soaking tub, separate shower, constant hot and cold running water and electricity. The main camp building is built on three levels to include a lounge area, a separate lounge bar and a fine dining area. The terrace enjoys magnificent views over the surrounding landscape and the Serengeti National Park. However, Buffalo Luxury Camp provides much more than luxurious accommodation. It provides guests with an opportunity to participate in game walks, night game drives, bush sun downer cocktails and bush dinners all of which activities are not commonly found on the Northern Safari circuit. Balloon Safaris are also available nearby. ... more   less
