Something not right?

Description

Lovely clean, well-organised campground very close to Ndabaka gate - Serengeti. Good, clean ablutions. Friendly, helpful staff. Richard, the owner, is fantastic and also helped us repair our Landrover. Also an experienced guide who offers day trips into the Serengeti. Highly recommend.

Even in heavy rains this is a beautiful campsite with immaculately clean ablutions, kitchen, leisure room.
Richard is a great, thoughtful, considerate owner and manager. It's been a pleasure staying here.
Credit card payment available!

It's a very nice campsite right on the road, everything is really very clean and is one of the best campsites in Tanzania. The owner Richard organizes a day trip to the Serengeti. The hut and cooking kitchen are available, electricity is also available with a longer cable.

A nice little campsite with friendly staff and good facilities. Seems more geared up for overlanding trucks but worked well for us. The ablutions are really nice with decent hot water. You can also buy some beers from the chaps.

Someone pinned this place twice, for more comments look at the other pin (zoom in the app map).

Agrees with all the previous comments! We felt that a lot of thought and effort was invested in this place!

We booked a private tour through Richard in the western corridor of the Serengeti (because we wanted to see the big migration crossing in the Gurmeti River - and we did manage!!).

The private tour included just a safari jeep and a driver who was a guide as well.

We paid 360 USD directly to Richard for the drive plus 240 USD to the NP office (fees and accommodation for 2 people, 24-hour permit).
In total 150 USD for one person per day.

Should be noted: the Serengeti main roads were ok (they maintain them every year after the rainy season) but we don't recommend doing it with your own vehicle. There are no signs in the park and it seems that the guides know well where the animals are and accordingly, where to take off the main roads. According to the high park's fee, trying by yourself can be a waste of money.

Fantastic campsite with good washroom and shower facilities - had a lovely hot shower. Lots of beautiful hanging plants and comfortable hammocks around the campsite. Richard welcomed us and was very helpful

we absolutely agree with all the previous description, what a lovely place!
We did a self drive safari with one of Richard staff members, super knowledgeable guide($40).

Had lunch and dinner once and the food was amazing (12.000 - 15.000 TSH)

Richard is a great guy who put a lot of effort and love into this place, everything you see he made himself
He also helped us out with some small issues we had with the car, since he is also a great mechanic(specially diesel engines)

When visiting the Serengeti highly recommend this place as your base camp!

Amazing camp site outside the park... Richard has put so much time and effort into making this camp site an amazing place for campers.. In comparison to what you pay and get inside the park, this camp site is waaay better.. Richard also does private tours inside the park.. Amazing ablution facilities with warm water and western toilets.. Kitchen area to make food and we were able to run our extension cord to the restaurant area for power. Absolutely LOVED this place.. When you are there, ask Richard what the name of his camp site means 😊 we paid USD10 pppn

I second the previous description. Richard,who runs the campground, is very knowledgeable of the area. He had worked for Serengeti parks for fifteen years before opening his own campground. He also does guide service and the price is right.
To camp in the Serengeti public park is 36.00$ US per night and you get nothing at all. Just a place to pitch your tent or park your vehicle. Fuku, Fuku is 10.00$ US a night and the previous noted services. And yes the hot water is hot with good pressure. All in all this is a no brainer. Fuku, Fuku wins hands down.

This place is in wrong location - it is located at -2.20297, 33.86233

Really a nice place. The staff made dinner, breakfast and lunch to go for our visit at Serengeti. They helped us with the routing in the park. We hope that the coordinates which showed this place 16 km away from the Gate to the Nationalpark will be corrected. The place is definitely about 200 m beside the gate to find at the main road.

A small camping near the Ndabaka gate, a beautiful place to relax after a safari. People are kindly and friendly and you feel at home. Shower and toilettes are cleans and with hot water.

This location is wrong. It is opposite the Serengeti stop over campsite. It is a lovely place indeed, with such friendly staff, and much better value than Serengeti Stop Over.
