Simple Bush Luxury
The traditional tented camp is by far the best choice to explore wildlife on a safari in Africa. There is nothing to compare with being in a luxurious camp in a beautiful setting with the sights and sounds of nature close by. You might want to come to Africa to see the wildlife and the beautiful African landscapes while being close to the rhythm of nature, and the luxurious tented camp provides the perfect way to do so!
Mapito Tented Camp provides its guests with the most authentic Africa experience due to its colonial, old days hunter’s camp ambience. Sitting snugly in a clearing surrounded by Acacia trees its 13 spacious walk-in tents create an intimate atmosphere for only 40 guests while indulging them with the amenities of a big lodge, as all tents are equipped with running water, flush toilets, hot and cold water showers, electric lights and mosquito nettings.
Personal attention and care is of high importance here in Tanzania. The friendly staff will go to their extremes to ensure that you have a wonderful, satisfying and memorable stay. Everything is done at your leisure. You decide how you want to spend your day at the camp and when to go for game drives in the Serengeti. Throughout your stay you will be serenaded by the resident wildlife.
In order to protect its amazing environment the camp runs entirely on solar energy in terms of electricity and hot water supply. A backup generator is only used to ensure electricity supply throughout rainy days.
Working closely with the nearby local communities the camp supports village development like school projects, wildlife management and employment.
Close to Nature
Mapito Tented Camp is located at Ikoma, just beyond the actual boundaries of Serengeti National Park in the very center of Serengeti Eco System. In Swahili language Mapito means the track of animals, and the locals avoid this area because there is always lots of wildlife around.
Make yourself comfortable in your luxury tent accompanied by the laugh of a Hyena or the roaring of a Lion or witness the amazing annual Wildebeest and Zebra Migration passing the camp heading north every year between June and August and on its way back to south November to January!
Its central location makes all parts of Serengeti accessible within short time and, being just outside the park, Bush Walks, Night Game Drives, Balloon Safaris and cultural experiences are other highlights organized by the camp.
