Kikoti Safari Camp


  • Maisha Kikoti Camp


Maisha Kikoti Camp is on the eastern edge of Tarangire National Park in northern Tanzania. 'Kikoti' is a Maasai word for 'the place where life began' which is how the Maasai regard the Tarangire eco-system. This camp recaptures the atmosphere of the traditional safari camp of yesteryear, built using traditional local materials to blend in with its environment.

The rooms are simply but elegantly furnished and decorated in warm creams and caramels. From here you can sit and enjoy the views out over the park.

Kikoti's proximity to Tarangire National Park allows a wide choice game drives. As the camp is set just outside the park it can also provide a range of activities that are not allowed for most camps inside the park, such as Maasai-led nature walks and night drives. You are also welcome to visit local Maasai villages to learn more about their traditional culture.

In the evening you can enjoy sundowners on Nasira Rock, a short drive from camp, while enjoying beautiful views of the bush and plains below. Back at camp, after a tasty dinner you will be treated to traditional Maasai singing and dancing. The camp also has a lounge bar with comfy sofas, the perfect place for you to relax and exchange tales of game drives and bush treks. There is a waterhole near the camp attracting a variety of passing game.
