Ikoma Bush Camp

Serengeti & the North

Rating: Mid-range    

Ikoma Bush Camp overview

Set just outside the western boundary of Serengeti National Park, Ikoma Tented Camp (or Ikoma Bush Camp) is in a great position for safaris in Serengeti’s western corridor. It’s not too far from the Grumeti River which is one of the crossing points for the migration as the massive herds of wildebeest, zebra and antelopes head from the southern Serengeti towards the Masai Mara. 

Ikoma has 35 semi-luxury traditional large walk-in tents each under thatch to keep the sun off. Each has an en-suite bathroom with shower and flush toilet, mozquito nets over the beds and a private veranda. 

The central restaurant and bar area has a large camp fire - an ideal spot to unwind with a drink after a long day’s exciting game viewing. Night drives and bush walks are a wonderful way to enjoy the Tanzanian wilderness, and you can also visit nearby Maasai villages.


Open: Ikoma Bush Camp is open all year.

Location: Ikoma Bush Camp is on the western border of Serengeti National Park, near the Grumeti River, famous for being one of the main crossing points of the annual wildebeest migration. The camp is in a grove of acacia trees. There is an airstrip nearby.

Rooms: There are 35 Meru tents under thatched shelters and with private verandas looking out over the Serengeti. All tents have attached bathrooms with shower, hand basin, flush toilet, soap, towels and bottled water. Tents have electrical lighting.

Activities: During the day you can go for game drives in the western corridor of Serengeti National Park. It is also possible to do walking safaris with a ranger and guide at sunrise or sunset and go for night drives, as the camp is just outside the park. The camp offers bush breakfasts and sundowners. While here you can visit a local Maasai village. Balloon rides can be arranged.

Facilities: The central dining and bar area includes a large campfire. The camp serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is free tea and coffee in the afternoon. Sundowners can be served by the campfire or in your tent. The camp has battery charging facilities.

Dining: Meals are taken at individual tables.

Children: Children of all, ages are welcome.

Health: This is a malarial area.

Communication: There is internet access, but this can be unreliable.

Ian McGookin

"The eco lodge was really nice. The staff were friendly and really put in the effort to make sure we had a good stay. This included a really nice honeymoon meal outside by the fire pit. The accomodation was really comfortable, and we had amazing views out over the Serengeti. At night, the staff had to escort us back to our rooms with weapons in case of animals - we had hyenas under our hut at one point...! The lodge also organised a walking safari (a really good trip!) and an open sided vehicle trip. This ended with tea and coffee by the Grumeti River watching the wildlife. This was incredibly memorable - the best cup of coffee ever!"

Julie Clouth
"Accommodation was good, but the food wasn't too great. The packed lunches in particular were very limited."
Janet Short
"Very good accommodation, food and very well mamaged. Not always easy to summon the Masai askari to guide us between our tent and the dining room!"
Ilana Howley
"The welcome and service we received in all of the places we stayed in was excellent. The accommodation definitely exceeded our expectations."
