Mbono Tented Camp

Per adult per night

Mbono Tented Camp stopped operating in June 2019 to focus on its nearby sister properties

Mbono Tented Camp lies in the deep shade of the acacia forest along the banks of the Mbono River. Located in Maswa Game Reserve, the camp is strategically positioned at the point where the river leaves the Serengeti National Park. The Mbono River meanders southwest to its confluence with the Simiyu River and eventually finds its way to Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria. This area is a magnet for Serengeti’s wildlife, attracted to the waterholes and streams in the game reserve.

The Mbono Area

Moving west from the southern Serengeti through Maswa Mbono, the landscape transitions from the infinite expanse of the short grass plains to whistling thornscrub and then into classic acacia savannahs, each habitat displaying its own characteristic beauty. This permanent tented camp has a natural aesthetic appeal with its simplistic luxury of neutral interiors designed to provide every comfort. The main gathering area is formal yet cosy, with a lounge and dining space to accommodate any size group. The imposing presence of nature makes Mbono a special place where game drives and bush walks will always provide wildlife encounters. Evidence of ancient tribal cultures can be seen with a visit to the Twa rock paintings nearby that are unique to this area.
