Simple and good

Kati Kati is a mobile camp located conveniently in the centre of central Serengeti. Service and facilities are simple, but adequate. We had good hot water for our showers despite rumours that the camp was facing water shortage problems.

Some of the staff were not very helpful, though they did indulge all our requests.

Food though smple was very well prepared. Of all the places we stayed, this camp had the best variety and quality of food.

The surroundings are also very good - we had Hyenas roaming in the vicinity, and there was a pride of lions not too far away - in fact, our dinner was interrupted one night by a fracas between the lions and hyenas fighting (presumably) over a kill.

Dinner is at a fixed time, though all parties sit at separate tables. They could improve on how they serve dinner. Each item is served individually. Since there is limited staff, it takes time for all the items to be served. Secondly, they dont announce the items that will be served, so you are left to guess at how big a helping of each item to take. It would be simpler if they simply served the dinner buffet style.

Kati Kati Camp review

Loved this place! It was the perfect combination of comfort and ruggedness.

We felt like we were in the Serengeti (because we were) and yet we relished our time relaxing here.

Tents were well designed and comfortable.

Food was excellent.

Amaizing stay at Kati Kati Camp

We had the most AMAIZING time here. Yes, it's a tent, and is quite basic, but it was fabulous.

We had lovely clean comfy beds and a sink and flush toilet. The 'shower' was a man behind the tent with a bucket of hot water hoisting it up shouting 'shower no. 1 ready'. It was great. The food was great, especially considering we were in the middle of know where in a tent. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. Each evening they would make a camp fire and we would sit round it listening to all the animals.

One evening, the animals were making a lot of noise and we couldn't get to sleep. All of a sudden we heard a huge 'crack' outside our tent. We had a peek out and right next to our tent was a huge elephant that had knocked down a tree and was ripping the bark off. Incredible.

It was really the best experience we had in Tanzania.

Kati Kati Camp review

This was very much a basic ‘bush camp’, moving every six months or so, however there were no real problems. Difficult to compare after some of the outstanding camps we had already experienced. Nevertheless it was quite acceptable. A very good cook here who made the best soup I have ever had!

It was here that we picked up our driver/guide, Frank Mfuko, who was to remain with us for the whole of our stay in Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Once again he was a delightful traveling companion with a particular interest in bird life. He took great pains to position his vehicle to get the best photo's in terms of light and composition.

We were there for the great migration which was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the whole trip.

Enjoyable Experience at Kati Kati

A lovely two night stay at this camp. Advertised as one of the simpler camps we were pleasantly surprised. The tents were a good size, well furnished and well spaced apart.

The staff were very friendly and the food was very good and served in generous portions. Packed lunches were provided for day safaris, which were also generous although a bit repetitive perhaps.

Each night a fire was prepared so guests could gather and have drinks around as the sun went down.

Two night stay

My favorite site (Skip) as I loved the outlook over the savannah and the elephants coming by at sunset.

Liked being in the tent and the feeling of roughing it in a luxury manner! Serenity.

Kati Kati Camp review

As this was te next camp after Ubuntu I'm afraid the experience felt disappointing, the staff lacked friendliness and we felt a little unwelcomed, this was more like a "Ship them in and ship then out hotel" rather than a bush camp. The food was uninspiring.

I suspect being as the camp was run by a larger organisation the personal touch was missing. Having said that the accommodation was clean and tidy.

Good Camp, Amazing Setting

The Kati Kati camp is very well maintain and presented. The tents are a very good size with lots of nice touches (the LED light bulbs were very welcome). Everything is built into your tent (loo and drop shower) and you could not ask for more really. The food was of a very high quality (wider range of options every night) and surpassed what we thought we would get based on the fact you are in the middle of the Serengeti.

The best feature of the camp is its location - it is set away from the main road area of the central Serengeti which means there was a lot of animal activities that took place around the camp during the day and night. This really made the stay to be a truly exceptional and very memorial experience.

Of all the places we went to during our trip the Serengeti was the best.

Kati Kati Camp review

We stayed just one night at Kati Kati as we needed a stop-over on our journey from Rhino Lodge to the Migration area in the north of the Serengeti. Kati Kati is a lovely camp and run by Tanzanians which was particularly nice. It is set in a super location with great views all around. Maribou storks in the trees in the camp were a real treat. The tent was very large with good storage and the two single beds were very comfortable. There was a good bathroom area at the back of the tent (flush toilet and bucket shower) which could be screened off for privacy.

The food here was amazing! Super quality and huge amounts! The dining arrangements were really nice with a couple of tents for diners so although the camp was full, it still had an intimate feel. We had another lovely evening with Zeph who had even more tales and jokes to tell us!

It was a shame we only had one night here and we would definitely go back.

Stopping point in Central Serengeti

We had trouble finding Kati Kati, as they have multiple camps and did not tell us which was ours...ending up driving to three different camps before finding the right one.

Sort of plopped in the middle of the forest without any views. Dinner and breakfast were good, but the tent was the least nice of our trip. Hanging light bulb in the middle of the room, no mosquito nets despite being in Tsetse territory. HUGE rat in our room at night despite double checking the tent for points of entry/exit. Would look for different accommodations if doing the trip again.
