You will find this beautiful tented camp located strategically so that guests have access to vast areas of the Serengeti. You will find that the main area has been built upon a raised deck to give you ample opportunity to look out over the plains and witness the wildlife passing by. You will find that the entire tented lodge has an African modern design with soft and bright furnishings. Relax and sit back as you watch over the plains from the comfort of the canvassed living room tent within the main lodge. With a large open side that leads out to a deck giving you views from every direction. The natural design of the room allows you to soak in the beauty that Africa offers. Lounge on one of the large and comfy sofas, read a book or watch as zebras and wildebeest gallop across the horizon. Enjoy African delicacies in the dining room tent that has tables inside and outside on the extended decking. Dine under candlelight and talk about the sights you have seen and the adventures that you will take. You will watch the sunset as you dine on exquisite dishes that are flavoursome and have been created by the expertise of the on-site chefs. If you have had a long day out in the bush, head down from the main lodge to the relaxing and tranquil swimming pool with an infinity edge that allows you to look out over the Serengeti.

All 25 standard tents bring you relaxation and luxury. They have been designed to blend in with the surroundings so that animals will wander freely throughout the tented campsite. With luxurious four-poster beds designed to keep the mosquitoes away so you can slip into a splendorous sleep, natural wooden furnishings with elements of African design to enhance the beauty of the plains. You can step out onto your private deck to get the best views of the animals that roam throughout the Serengeti. Each bathroom has been designed to suit every need, with beautiful double vanity and relaxing bath right next to private windows so you can soak yourself in hot bubbles whilst you look out at the most incredible African views or even enjoy a relaxing night in the tub as the night sky shines. Why not shower under the stars with the intricately designed outdoor shower that lets you get closer to nature.

Activities at Kubu Kubu Tented Lodge

Head out on a spectacular adventure with one of the trained expert guides as you travel across the magnificent Serengeti plains. Have the chance to get up close with the animals that call it their home, see predators seek and hunt their prey, watch herds galloping across the golden plains whilst you are on a game drive. Your guide will take you to all the hotspots for prime animal viewing, teach you about the tracking techniques, and answer questions on the herds and packs that frequent the area. If you time your trip right, you may even get the chance to witness the majestic Great Migration of the wildebeests as they venture across the Mara River for greener pastures.

If you want to see the animals from a unique perspective, head out on one of the many early morning hot-air balloon safaris. You will take to the skies and soar over the plains whilst the herds stampede below you, and after watching the plains come alive, you will be treated to a delicious picnic breakfast after landing. You may also want to take part in the famous African tradition of a sundowner where you will enjoy drinks at sunset as you sit around a campfire talking with other travellers of the joys you witnessed throughout the day. You will watch the African night sky come alive as the stars sparkle overhead.

Tripadvisor comments Kubu Kubu Tented Lodge

Everything was outstanding and the staff was mind blowing. The food was delicious and very diversified. We stayed there with friends 4 nights, every day different and their lovely chef asked us every morning how she could please us! At the end of our stay the whole staff organised something unique for us. We cannot describe in words what we felt. The only thing we would see to them: thank you so much.

If you want luxury while on safari in the Serengeti, this is the place for you. The rooms are large, spacious and very comfortable. There are many extras which make this place luxurious, our favorite being the amazing outdoor shower. There is a lovely pool and lounge area for relaxing. The food and service was excellent. Drinks were included which probably drives up the price and we would have preferred an option to purchase drinks separately. It would be a nice place to stay for a couple of day during a longer safari. If you can afford it, you won’t regret going there.
