Nomad Serengeti Safari Camp review

This place was absolutely magical. Babu and Goodluck and their team couldn't have done more to make us feel more at home.

I guess we were fortunate in that we had the the camp to ourselves for two nights but the service, the food and the friendliness of the camp team was sensational. A truly special place.

Amazing camp and safari

As we were with Nomad for our entire trip, it was a pleasure to pull into their camp. Had a drink of our choice waiting for us as we got out of our truck.

Tent was amazing...luxurious and rustic, felt like we could have been on Safari with Teddy Roosevelt. Woke up each morning with a view of zebra, wildebeest, baboons, eland, gazelle, etc. Free drinks and time around the campfire each night, and community dinners with the other guests...which was a very nice experience after more than a week just eating with the two of us.

Staff was amazing, food was great, and the safari was spectacular...drove right through the wildebeest migration, and had lunch surrounded 360 by wildebeests and zebras. GREAT place to end our safari. Can't say enough good things about Nomad Tanzania.

Great guide at Serengeti Safari Camp

Lovely situation,very friendly staff but lacked management. Dietary requests and drink orders often forgotten. Tents a little tired,e.g hole in toilet roof and zips difficult. Water for bucket shower unpredictable in time of arrival!

Expert Africa comments

Serengeti Safari Camp was sorry that the camp didn’t quite live up to the expectations of these travellers.

They said that historically they had always found the camp to work well with no manager – guests were just hosted by their guides. However, recently it seems that in certain cases the system isn’t working as well it used to. They have listened to guest feedback and so from next season (June 2012) they will have a manager in camp which will improve service issues.

Furthermore, over April and May the camp will have a complete soft furnishing refurbishment and tent canvases cleaned/renewed etc as needed.

Arrived Day 1 of new camp near Mara River!

Tents, service, food and location were all excellent.

At night in your tent you could hear the lions roar, hyenas cry and wildebeests migrating through the camp. Fascinating but not scary.

Days on safari with our Nomad guide, Khalifa, were excellent. We saw the wildebeest and zebra in their tens of thousands moving inexorably north towards the Mara and Sand Rivers and then, somtimes, crossing. It rained a bit 2 days we were there which freshened the grass and made the animals less desperate to cross the Mara or Sand River. The crossings, when they occurred, were exciting and not without their peril for the wildebeests from broken legs on the rocks or crocodiles or lions.

We also sawe a leopard kill, cheetahs consuming a kill, many prides of lions and a lion kill as well as giraffes, elephants, hyenas, jackals, etc. The days were full of interest.

Nomad Serengeti Safari Camp review

Perfect camp. Two days before we were to head out the 'mobile' camp relocated to be right inside the migration which was a truly incredible experience.

Falling asleep to the sound of wildebeests is truly an excellent experience.

Amazing stay with Nomad!

We had an excellent guide (Paul), great food, great service, a lovely location and an amazing safari tent.

Everything was very well put together and would definitely highly recommend this group to other travelers.

Nomad camp...just perfect

I cannot say how happy we were with the Nomad camp and guides. The level of professionalism was superb, the quality and variety of meals where inspirational and the company and atmosphere in the camp was perfect.

We arrived hot and tired after our transfer, the Tsetse flies had been biting us on the way but seeing a herd of elephants as we left the airfield together with a hot shower and cold drink soon revived us. The relaxed family dining table was brilliant, a great time to catch up on everyone's adventures and sighting's plus some intelligent and interesting conversation. Once again the international groups made this a first class atmosphere, we had groups from USA, UK and Belgium whilst we were there and it was family friendly as well. The teenagers made friends and played board games before dinner whilst the adults indulged in one more "gintonic" and great wines around the campfire.

Our guide was very professional and we were very lucky to see everything we had hoped for including a river crossing. We found that the option of a long day was better than two shorter game drives as the camp was about 30 to 40 minutes drive from the main Game activity. As this was pour fist Safari I was concerned that we wouldn't make the right choices, but at Nomad I absolutely know that we got it just right. Even the hyenas howling at the starry sky outside the tent couldn't stop me sleeping like a baby.
