Kiota Tented Camp

Kiota is a beautiful and great value Camp, set in the central Serengeti allowing for fantastic year round game viewing, particularly if you have an interest in big cats. The Camp itself is relatively simple but very well done, offering an authentic safari experience. Sleeping under canvas in the middle of the Serengeti, surrounded by wildlife, is what life at Kioto Camp is all about.  

Kiota Camp - The Details

A permanent tented Camp that is situated in the heart of the central Serengeti. Its ideal position takes advantage of the year round game viewing, especially in the Seronera Valley, famous for its healthy populations of big cats in particular lions and cheetah. The Great Wildebeest Migration passes through twice a year too, around April/May and again in November.  

The Camp is comprised of 10 ensuite tents each with private shaded verandah, flush toilets and a safari style bucket shower.  There is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. There is large dining tent and fire pit for evening camp fires, as well as a seperate lounge area which includes a bar and a well stocked library. 

There is plenty to keep you busy here, with game drives in open vehicles to maximise on wildlife viewings, options for having bush dinners and bush breakfasts, a romantic private dinner under the stars and campfires in the evening.  Kiota is a great Camp for those looking for an authentic safari experience at a reasonable price and works well with its sister - Chaka Mobile Camp, which moves from South to North with the Great Migration.

Kiota Camp - Reviews

We were met off the plane and had a game drive before we went to Kiota Camp. During our four days stay which you need, lost count of the number of lions we saw including a pride of 13, four tree climbing, an injured male with wire round his neck which had to be sedated with its female, by rangers and vet, and a family with a kill.
The herds of elephant, zebra, giraffe, buffalo and wilderbeast were huge. We also saw five leopards and three cheetahs. One with her cub got down from her rock and walked in front of our vehicle. Best of all our driver Raymond after another early start took us to see the migration.
It was completely unimagineable. Best of all they all got across the river. 
Kiota camp was great staff, wonderful food, fantastic game drives.  We could hear lions every night and sometimes in the morning at breakfast. Also zebras and hyenas right outside our tent. What more could you ask for?
