GRUMETI RIVER CAMP
EAST AFRICA SERENGETI TANZANIA
|CC Africa’s Grumeti River
Camp is situated in a remote valley in the western corridor of the
Serengeti National Park, just 50 kilometres (31 miles) east of Lake
Victoria – Africa’s largest lake. Flanked by two hillsides, this
flamboyant camp overlooks a bywater of the Grumeti River and offers a
comfortable haven from which to experience the truly wild pulse of
Every year during Africa’s annual
hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, zebra and other herbivores
cross the Grumeti River, risking the jaws of some of the largest
crocodiles on earth. Large pods of hippo grunt from their watery
hideaway below the camp and black-and-white Colobus monkeys live in
Grumeti’s bird-filled riverine trees. At night, the nocturnal
orchestra of owls and bush babies is punctuated by the primeval
sounds of lion and hyena.
Grumeti’s spacious tents under makuti (palm frond) canopies and the vibrancy of colourful interiors - including hand-blown Kenyan glassware, African cloth and local sculptured furnishings - bring alive the excitement of Africa. Each tented suite features a large bed made of Tanzanian cypress and comfortable deck furniture both in and outdoors. En suite bathrooms offer separate w.c.s and alfresco showers open to the sun and stars.
|Yoruba beaded antique
artefacts adorn the sitting areas and domed bar. Spacious decks are
perfect for sundowners overlooking the water. Delicious Pan-African
cuisine – prepared on traditional ‘jikos’ (fires) or in stone
ovens – is served in the boma or open-fronted dining area. Private
dinners may be arranged for any special occasion.
Expert Tanzanian CC Africa guides will lead you on interpretive, twice-daily game-drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles into the game-rich Serengeti National Park, boasting the largest mass of free-ranging animals on earth.
As there are only two small
camps in this remote park, you almost never see other safari
vehicles. Sundowners on the Kirawira Hills are a memorable way to
end a day’s safari.
