A wonderful camp, quite big, but it doesn't actually feel that it is. The staff were without exception wonderful, friendly and efficient. The tents were perfectly maintained with everything one could need. The food was beyond belief, plentiful and varied. The walk to the lake was a wonderful to stretch our legs after a long time in vehicles and the...

Maramboi tented camp was a wonderful place to finish our safari! The "tent" felt like a spacious cabin with everything you could need. We especially liked the grazing zebras off our front porch! The camp is more like a resort with a beautiful lounge area and swimming pool. The happy hour by the pool was a beautiful place to share...

The Maramboi Tented Camp is by the same owner as Kati Kati in Serengeti and this is very noticeable. It is even up a notch. Maybe a little on the larger side, but the tents are very luxurious and have good facilities and are very roomy. The bedding is very good, the mattresses comfortable, there is mosquito netting. The bathrooms...

When we reached Maramboi tented camp, I was blown away by their amazing service. We flew at 1:30 AM to Kili airport, drove from Kili airport to Tarangire NP, game drive for more than four hours, came to this camp, tired, sleepy and jet lagged. All of our problem went away as soon as we met these wonderful service people....

On our safari tour in Tanzania we also had a stop in Maramboi Tented Camp and we were really amazed. Zebras between the "tents", open fire place, swimming pool, amazing view, delicious food and professional service. We definitely would come again!

My daughters and I did a 10 day safari and stayed here 2 nights. The food was really good and plentiful. They let you put together your own boxed lunches for your day trips and they were very good. We especially loved having a pair of zebra outside our cabin and seeing wart hogs close up when we went to...

Maramboi was a lovely tented camp and I'm giving it 4 stars only because it is not at the 5 star level of luxurious camps. It was a solid 4. Rooms are beautiful - try to score one right on the river. The views are phenomenal. The food is okay but whatever it lacks is made up in other areas,...
