Bush Hospitality at its Best!
Ubuntu is a mobile camp that changes its location based on the migration. When I visited in late May, the camp was in the Western Serengeti, close to the Grumeti river. My stay here was perfectly in line with what I had experienced at Dunia, which is a very high standard of service and comfort, while remaining unpretentious and true to the to the ideals of spending time in the bush.
I was lucky that during my stay some herds were actually crossing the Western Serengeti on their way towards the North, so I got to experience some of ‘the great migration’. Granted, you probably won’t see hundreds of thousands of wildebeest grazing on wide-open plains due to the nature of the terrain in this part of the park, but the experience is still fantastic. I was lucky to watch a wildebeest be taken down by a crock, and five cheetahs chilling in the grass waiting for any kind of prey to walk by. Those were definitely two highlights during my entire trip, and I hope to return to Ubuntu one day."

Heaven on Earth!
This is without a doubt the most heavenly place nestled in a magnificent area of our planet. The Serengeti is BREATHTAKING and every single detail of this camp honors this. Staff are wonderful, warm, real and profoundly connected/sensitive to nature and the animals living there. The tents are gorgeous and the food is divine. I long for this place all the time, it's that special. I believe the Serengeti is the most magical land on this planet."

All of the reviews are true! This camp is completely amazing! I selected Asilia specifically because of the reviews I read on TripAdvisor and I have to say the camp was exactly as described.
We stayed for two nights in mid-March on our way further into the Serengeti. I wish we stayed longer. There are so many reviews which go into detail about the comfort level and service that Olakia provides. I think it's pretty fully covered and you can expect an amazing experience."

a special treasure of africa!
This place will forever have a very special place in our hearts. This was our final leg of our Safari through Tanzania and we will always have such vivid memories of the beauty and experience of this place.
The guides were brilliant! The thing we value was that the guides truly respected the animals and landscape and this meant we had an amazing experience watching nature unfold without disturbance. We saw other guides interrupt the flow of nature by getting too close to the animals just for the ‘photo opp’ but the way our guides showed us around meant we got to see much more authentic and natural experiences. Cheetah hunting. A cheetah and her cubs. Wild dogs hunting down Wildebeest. A leopard on the prowl. Hyena and vultures fighting over a zebra carcass. The guides had eyes like eagles, unbelievable driving skills and the respect for the animals and environment that we loved. We were over the moon by what we got to see and their commitment to show us the beauty of Africa. Plus we got to share many laughs along the way!"

A great family experience!
We stayed at Mara Bush House for 3 night with our 3 year old girl and our friends with 2 small children. We were a bit anxious to take our daughter to East Africa on a safari but we had the most amazing time. The house was stunning with a waterhole in front of the house and a nice big pool.
The Maasai staff were just so friendly and professional and the food was all very delicious. The staff played with the kids all the time and even taught them how to use a bow and arrow.
Our guide Fred was just the best. He taught the children so many things while driving around and seeing all the animals. And distracted them when they got tired or over enthusiastic when they had to sit calm. It was just perfect! A great family experience!"

Really enjoyable experience
It really is a lovely experience. The staff is beyond friendly and the food is delicious. The tents are huge, you could pretty much host a small wedding reception in them. The bed doesn't feel cosy from sitting on it but I think it was the best sleep I've had all year. I even had a coffee one night to stay up in hope of hearing the heavy breathing of the lions roaming around the camp site, and still immediately fell asleep and didn't wake up until the morning breakfast call of fresh Tanzanian coffee brought to the tent.
We wish you wonderful travels. If you are planning your trip to include Dunia, please know there are two very jealous strangers out there wishing we could be doing the same.If you are planning your trip to include Dunia, please know there are two very jealous strangers out there wishing we could be doing the same."

Naboisho Camp: a child friendly camp
We stayed at Naboisho camp for 3 nights and took our 3 year old girl.
We were a bit anxious to take our little girl to East Africa but we are very glad we did. It was such a fantastic family experience. The camp managers also have 2 little girls so it was such a child friendly holiday.
We had the most stunning sundowners on the plains under an acacia tree. Kids running around and parents drinking gin tonics. The camp staff organized activities for the children to keep them busy and there were babysitters available at night.
During the day we took them on 1 or 2 drives and this went also very well because the guides were so professional. We can really recommend this Asilia Africa camp."

Roomy & Private Accomodations
Stayed here 3 nights after a night in Stone Town. Spent two days SCUBA diving. Although there is no dive shop at the resort, they met us timely for orientation and pick-up. Grounds were spectacular - clean, gorgeous flora & fauna, peaceful. The hut was huge!! Bathroom was bigger than some rooms I've stayed at in Europe. I took the bed in the loft and felt like a little kid up there. I was scared to death one night when a bush baby jumped on the roof and sounded like he was in the house (he wasn't so all was good). Loved the privacy, the view, and the options of outdoor lounging.
Definitely a great place for couples to come for a private & romantic getaway."

Beautiful and relaxing!
The rooms are beautiful and relaxing. The private roof deck is a great spot to lounge, and the private pool is a must given the heat! Our butler, George, was excellent! We had never had a butler before, so found it a little awkward, but that was no fault of George's. The food was excellent and we were stuffed the entire time. The scuba center, ScubaFish is top notch. A great relaxing holiday!
