Bush Rover

Serengeti and Nyerere Tanzania

  • Quirky, isolated safari accommodation for something really different.
  • Follow the wildlife on an exciting safari.
  • Enjoy this unique accommodation as you soak up the pristine wilderness.
  • You can enjoy Bush Rovers in three locations in the Serengeti, plus Nyerere (Selous).
  • Simple, yet chic, every comfort has been thought of.
  • Enjoy the setting sun from your private balcony.

Location: There are three Bush Rover base camps in northern Tanzania (Serengeti NP) - see locations and dates below, and one camp n southern Tanzania (Selous Game Reserve).

May to mid-July - the Bush Rover Grumeti camp sits above the Grumeti River in the western corridor of the Serengeti. The huge gatherings of wildebeest attract many predators
Mid-July to November - the Bush Rover Mara camp is in the northern Serengeti overlooking a beautiful migration crossing point on the Mara River.
December to March - the Bush Rover Gol Mountains camp is in the Ngorongoro Highlands (east of Serengeti) where migrating herds often gather on vast isolated plains shared with the Maasai.
All year -  the Bush Rover is available for exclusive camps all year in the Selous Game Reserve.

Rooms: Built from working Land Rover 110 Defenders, the Bush Rovers are set up away from any crowds in stunning private camps. We would place a max of 4 Bush Rovers on any of the sites at any given time if necessary. However, having all 4 being utilised at the same time at the same place would be highly unusual.  Private, exclusive-use is also available at each location for a premium. Our Selous Bush Rover camp is exclusive-use ONLY for a maximum of 2 people currently.
All have en-suite bathrooms with solar heated hot water. Each Bush Rover has an elevated bedroom with a full-sized bed, flusing loo, and even a hot bath and its own balcony. It comes with solar-generated electricity and plug sockets to charge batteries and cameras.

Dining: Delicious meals are prepared and served each day. Breakfast and dinner can be enjoyed by the camp fire.

Children: Children of 2 years and older are welcome, although this type of safari is perhaps best suited to older children.

Health: This is a malarial area.

Communication: There is no WiFi or telephone signal while on safari.

Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews

One of the highlights of our trip. It was amazing how the Bush Rover was made to feel so comfortable and was so well equipped. It had been parked at the edge of the lake, so we could see and hear hippos all the time. We loved having our meals in the adjoining tent.
