It’s essential to select lodging that fits your needs and budget in order to get the most out of your Serengeti safari.

The Maasai word Siringeti, which translates to “endless plains,” is the source of the name “Serengeti.” It has a diverse population, is simple to get to, and provides some of the best safari opportunities in Africa. A sizable area is covered by the Serengeti Safari Park. You’ll observe that the Serengeti offers a range of lodging choices, from elegant safari lodges to romantic tented camps.

The best location to view the wildebeest migration is one of our top considerations when choosing a camp or lodge for your Serengeti safari tour. As a result, there are additional crucial factors to think about when selecting your lodge or camp. It is crucial to take into account the views from your room or tent, the number of rooms, the caliber of the food, the dining options, the relaxation opportunities, and the general potential for game viewing in the area.

In Tanzania’s Serengeti, safari lodges are long-lasting structures made of brick and mortar. Large groups can stay in these lodges, some of which have more than 60 rooms, and they typically offer full amenities like meeting spaces, business centers, swimming pools, gyms, air conditioning, libraries, etc. Our top recommended lodges in Serengeti national park:

Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti (Central Serengeti): With breathtaking views and a watering hole, this luxurious lodge is undoubtedly one of the most memorable ways to experience the Serengeti.

Melia Serengeti Lodge (Central Serengeti): it is a luxury lodge that blends into its natural surroundings while providing the services and amenities of a luxury hotel.

Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge (Central Serengeti): This semi-luxurious African-style lodge offers panoramic views of the Serengeti’s vast, never-ending plains.


The best places to experience a genuine Serengeti safari are typically thought to be tented camps. The majority of Serengeti safari camps are modest, with only five to ten tents. All of the camps we suggest offer large canvas rooms with actual beds, private bathrooms, and dining areas with fine cuisine. They are not at all rustic; rather, they are just as opulent as lodges. Tent camps can be found in the medium, semi-luxury, and luxury tiers of lodging. Our Top Recommended Tented Safari Camps in Serengeti National Park:

Lemala Nanyukie Tented Lodge (Eastern Serengeti): It is located just outside the Seronera circuit, allowing for some private game viewing while still being close to the famous Seronera, known as the Serengeti’s big cat area.
