Ronjo Camp

Serengeti & the North

Rating: Mid-range    

Ronjo Camp overview

Ronjo is a mobile camp in Central Serengeti, moving to a new site roughly every 6 months. The game viewing is excellent all year and is supplemented by the passing of migration in May-June and November-December. The camp's remote location means that it is frequently visited by animals and you'll often hear the calls of hyenas as you fall asleep at night. This proximity to nature is one of Ronjo Camp's prime attractions.

Game drives are the focus here. These set out early, before sunrise, returning around lunchtime, and again in the late afternoon. These are cooler times of day when animal activity is at its maximum. Longer day safaris with picnic lunches are also possible. There is a hot air balloon launching site near the camp, and taking to the skies is a great way to appreciate the majesty and sheer scale of the Serengeti.

The 16 tents are arranged in an arc around the central mess area. They are traditional safari tents with gauze windows along two sides, simply furnsihed and with en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water. Each tent has a small sitting area to the front, shaded from the sun, which looks out over the plains and Banagi Hills.

The mess area is a large canvas tent which keeps pleasantly cool in the heat of the day. Meals are served here, and this area also houses the bar with its welcoming sofas and chairs. Outside there are two firepits that come into their own around dusk for sundowner drinks, and again after dinner when you can enjoy some fine star gazing.     


Open: Ronjo Camp is open all year.

Location: The camp is in the Banagi Valley in Serengeti National Park. The camp is unfenced and animals often pass through, especially at night. This is a mobile camp and moves to a new site about every 6 months, always staying within the Central Serengeti.

Rooms: There are 16 guest tents, arranged in a crescent shape to either side of the main tent that houses the bar and restaurant. There is a small dressing area off each bedroom, and an en-suite bathroom with 24-hour solar-heated water for the basin and shower, and some toiletries. Each tent has a shaded deck with views over the plains towards the Banagi Hills. Maasai guides escort guests between tents and the mess area after dark to ensure complete safety.

Activities: Game drives are the main activity, half day in the morning and late afternoon, and full day. There is good wildlife viewing year round and the migration passes through usually in May-June and again in November-December, adding excitement to the safari. Hot air balloon rides can be arranged.

Facilities: The restaurant and lounge-cum-bar form the social core of the camp, set under the shade of a canvas tent. There are 2 fire pits on the area to the front of the mess area where you can enjoy evening drinks, chats and star gazing. There are charging points in the mess tent.

Dining: Meals are eaten at communal tables in the mess tent. Wine is available to compliment dinner.

Children: Children of all ages are welcome.

Health: This is a malarial area.

Communication: There is no internet access.

Miss. Amy Harley

"So much fun being in the wild- we really enjoyed our time here and felt very safe but in with all the action of the animals being around the tent at night!"

Mr. Peter Orpin (20/11/2019)
"Fantastic wildlife experiences here with lions, leopards seen near and around the camp. Local Masai guard, Tyco, was a great guy and helped interpret the myriad of foot prints within the campsite. Truly magical place to stay. Beds too hard for me but I am a bit of a Goldilocks when it comes to beds. Sorted something out with cushions from the truck. "
Janie Highland
"This was really in the wilderness! You could hear the hyenas calling all round you during the night. Very comfortable tents. I was a bit concerned with this camp as I thought it might be a bit basic but it was very comfortable and was probably one of my favourite camps. Good fun sitting round the camp fire with a sundowner."
