After a long day driving the rough and tumble roads of the Serengeti it was wonderful to relax and enjoy the evening at this great camp. The staff greeted us and made us feel welcome. The tented room was an oasis of luxury. It had everything a top class hotel in the city would have. The bed was very comfortable. There was a nice shower and a separate tub. There was also a nice sitting room and it was equipped with all the necessary plugs to recharge our electronic devices. The deck had a nice view overlooking the vast Serengeti. The meals were very good and the staff provided excellent service. It was a great place to stay!
My friend and I got the chance to stay at Serengeti Acacia Camps while on a 4-day safari with Gosheni Safaris. We chose the "budget" option with our safari organizer and didn't expect too much from our accommodations. We were BLOWN AWAY when we pulled up to Acacia Camp! It is a serious luxury camping experience, and everything during our stay was just perfect. Robert took excellent care of us and made sure we got the most out of our 1 night at the camp. We had a delicious dinner in the camp's dining tent and enjoyed all of the amenities in our room (bathtub with a view was incredible!)
Aside from the state-of-the-art facilities, top-notch service and incredible location, by far the most memorable aspect of Acacia Camp was the INSANELY COMFORTABLE BED! Something about the mattress/bed sheets was just unbelievable -- it was torturous to get up in the morning! I could have stayed in that bed forever!
Thank you to Robert and all of the Serengeti Acacia Camp staff for making our short 1-night stay so memorable! Anyone interested in staying here should most definitely do it, but don't make the same mistake I did and book at least 2 nights here to get the full experience!
My husband and I stayed here for two nights. One night before heading to the northern Serengeti to stay at their migration camp, and one night on our way back.
The rooms here were amazing. Much bigger and nicer than I expected in the middle of the Serengeti. They had a small living room!
The rooms came with basic toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, and lotion. There is a universal charging station so an adapter was not needed.
You could hear the wildlife right outside. Hyenas, zebras, lions, etc. It was amazing. When it is dark outside you will have an escort to/from your room. They will provide walkie talkies so you can contact staff easily.
Breakfast is buffet style. Dinner was plated one night and buffet the other night. The food was good and filling. Breakfast is served outside and with a great view. There were zebras and an ostrich we watched while we ate.
Here you make your own boxed lunch to take with you. I much prefer making my own lunch because this way nothing went to waste. I only packed what I wanted. I hope they don't change this.
There is a large lobby and bar. WiFi is available here. It's not the fastest wifi but it works to check in with people. I wouldn't expect much more in the middle of the Serengeti. One night my husband and I were relaxing here before dinner with drinks and they surprised us with popcorn. Nice touch.
Staff is very friendly and welcoming.
On our way out the last morning we found cheetahs! Right there at camp a mother and two babies. It was very exciting.
There is a staff tip box in the lobby. Leave your tip here and it will be shared with everyone. No need to individually tip.
We spent 3 nights at Acacia camp- 2 upon our arrival to the Serengeti, and 1 night after we returned from Bologonya area. The camp’s location is in in a lovely wooded area, with zebra, waterbuck, impala, elephants, hornbills, monkeys and more in the camp’s vicinity. It is near a river, yellow acacia trees on the banks with hills as the background. There is a small hippo pool nearby. A hyena was even spotted behind one of the tents early one morning. The staff was wonderful- friendly, attentive, and quick to respond to our requests. They were definitely the highlight of the camp. Special thanks to Anthony and Shabani! The tents were very comfortable, clean, nicely decorated, with electricity and charging strips, and running water (moderate pressure) for the shower as well as the sink. Walkie talkies are available in the room to contact the staff for escort after dark or if you need something. Breakfast and dinner were served buffet style, and you dine with your party and guide. There was usually a variety of foods available, but the food was inconsistent- fair to good in my opinion. But I am not a buffet fan, so maybe I was biased. The box lunch was average, and you pack it yourself, which I like because it minimizes waste. WiFi was available in the dining/reception area. The bar had a decent selection of beverages and comfortable seating. Laundry service is available, and was nicely done. Overall, two very nice stays and we were sad to say goodbye!
Stayed for two nights while touring Serengeti. Very convenient location in the park. The staff was very friendly. The tents have good potential but have been let to run down. in general they are comfortable but very low water pressure, hot water limited to certain hours, electricity in rooms only when dark. We had problem with toilet and shower and had to ask a few times before it was taken care of. Wifi only in public lounge tent (not in rooms) limited seating space and when everyone goes there in the evening the wifi is very limited. Dinner was good, lunch boxes very limited and you have to make them yourself in the morning (waste of valuable time when you get up to see animals very early in the morning)With a little more effort could be much better. (we were able to compare to another camp that was of much higher standard). I must say that the staff did make an effort to make us feel comfortable.
