At the heart of a Tented Camp is a dining tent where delicious meals are served. Here you can enjoy being in the middle of the Serengeti African wilderness. Depending on where the herds of gnus and zebras find themselves, we either stay in the Seronera area (heart of the Serengeti), or a combination of Seronera with a Tented Camp in the North of the Serengeti and/or Ndutu, between the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater.
