GUIDE ON SAMETU CAMP IN SERENGETI
The gorgeous natural beauty of the Seronera Valley in Serengeti National Park captures the hearts and minds of AfricanMecca guests who desire unique safari experiences. The area is known for a large predator population that rivals others on the continent, and the enchantment of the area intensifies when the Great Migration thunders across the open plains.
In the eastern edge of the central sector is the mid-range accommodation of Sametu Camp, a secluded place to spend hours watching the fauna stopping by the Ngarenanyuki River, one of many in the area around Sametu and Barafu Kopjes.
Accommodation At Sametu CampTwelve double-bed safari tents including two family tents at Sametu Camp provides comfort and convenience for your Africa wilderness travel. Each tent is furnished with romantic wrought iron beds canopied with mosquito netting, bedside tables with lamps, a sitting area with upholstered chairs, and hand-carved wood tables and writing desks. In the rear of the tent is your private ensuite bathroom, with a marble vanity, private flush toilet, bathrobes, and shower with running hot and cold water.
Part of your bush holiday in Africa will no doubt be spent under the canopy shade of the private verandah, relaxing in contemporary safari chairs with a cocktail in hand and iconic East African wildlife just beyond your doorstep. You may even be lucky enough to witness a lion hunt or watch the smallest of elephants take its first drink of water from the Ngarenanyuki River. Each tent has charging stations, as well as radios for communicating with camp staff as needed. Power and WiFi are available 24-hours per day, and laundry service is available for a supplemental fee. The central campfire is a great place to interact with other guests, and a spotting scope is available for guest use.
Safari At Sametu CampExploring Serengeti National Park is sure to be a memorable trip that you will talk about for many years to come. Game drives are the best way to experience central Serengeti, as your guide covers the most terrain and takes you to prime locations for wildlife viewing. Whether you’re here to see the resident species, which are in the area throughout the year, or the wildebeest migration as it traverses the area from April to May and again in December and January, there’s no shortage of awe-inspiring adventure to be had. The heart-pounding excitement of seeing over 1.5 million wildebeests and thousands of zebras is almost too much to comprehend.
Our guides communicate between vehicles to share insider information about where the animals are, as well as any specific behaviors that may be of interest to our guests. This “live feed” of data ensures that AfricanMecca guests enjoy superior service and wildlife viewing any time of year. We recommend that you stay at least two nights at Sametu Camp so that you may partake in a hot air balloon tour over the Serengeti plains to get a real sense of the expanse of this East African landscape.
Dining At Sametu CampEvery safari vacation requires a great deal of energy — and at Sametu Camp you’ll never find a shortage of incredible dishes. They’re noted for being some of the best among all our deluxe accommodation options in central Serengeti! You will be amazed at how the chef can create such tasty dishes from locally-sourced ingredients. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet style, or you can request these meals in the bush as part of your morning game drives. Back at camp you’ll enjoy a plated dinner, and you can choose between a group dining experience or a more intimate setting for two.
With prior arrangements, the staff selects a special location on the property where you are surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of Tanzania. The central mess tent also has a small lounge where you will find a selection of spirits, beers, sodas, wine, and cocktails. The camp can accommodate special dietary considerations with prior notice, and the chef can prepare menus and source ingredients for your stay. Speak with your AfricanMecca representative to make these arrangements.

What We Like About Sametu Camp
- Sametu Camp is a deluxe accommodation that offers a balance between quality and quantity
- The camp has a special tent for families and the staff is great with children, providing extra attention when needed
- The tents are good sized and clean, and the beds are comfortable for enjoying a good night of sleep — or laying awake listening to the sounds of African wildlife in the bush
- The area is known for its big cat populations, as well as a variety of resident species year-round and the Great Migration twice each year
- The chef prepares excellent food, especially for a mid-range accommodation, and the staff are warm, friendly, and well-versed in guest hospitality
Things To Note When Staying At Sametu Camp
- With only 12 guest tents, Sametu Camp tends to fill quickly, especially during peak season — we recommend booking the property at least 12 to 18 months in advance
- Sametu Camp does not have special activities for families and offers only game drives as your primary activity due to the central location. Optional balloon safaris can be added on your stay
- This is not a premier, upscale accommodation and may not meet the desires of guests looking for an ultra luxury bush experience
- The camp charges extra for drinks and laundry
- Sametu Camp is not ideal accommodation to stay in if you are self-driving to the camp location on your own

SAFARI TRIP IDEA FOR SAMETU CAMP IN SERENGETI TANZANIA
When staying at Sametu Camp in Central Serengeti (Seronera River Wilderness), we recommend combining it with your Northern Tanzania safari to Tarangire, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater. End your trip with a Swahili cultural tour and beach holiday in Zanzibar.
You may optionally extend out to offbeat parks in Southern and Western Tanzania such as Selous, Ruaha or Katavi ending with a chimpanzee trekking safari at Gombe or Mahale by the relaxing Lake Tanganyika.
