Travel Blogs from Serengeti National Park
A safari was always top on our list of
things to do in Africa, however we knew it was going to cost a bomb!
Trying to organise a safari on a budget in one of the best game
viewing parks in the world, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater proved
tricky. However, whilst in Mwanza we managed to sort a safari way
within our initial price range! We used a company called Masumin, run
by an Indian British guy called Mahboob. Thankfully ...
Spent 2 days in Serengetti (12000 sq miles) and 1 day in Ngorongoru crater looking at big game. Had amazing drives in early morning looking for the "Big Five". Our driver who had been doing safari's for 7 yrs said the most cats he has seen in 3 days ...
... for a lion ambush and, right on cue, Fadhil spies the eyes and ears of a hunting lioness hidden in the tall grass at the crest of the hill.
We watch for forty five minutes as the lioness sizes up group after group of zebras entering her trap. Many groups have young foals seemingly perfect for the lone lioness. Still, she waits…and waits. Bill has warned us of the need for patience but we succumb to hunger pains. All of us – except Beth – ...
It's my last official day in Tanzania and I'm already feeling sad about leaving... I remember this from last time as well. We departed Bunda in the morning and headed back to the Serengeti for a short game drive and to the Grumeti airstrip. This is a small plane that will take us back to Arusha for the afternoon and then I have a flight out tonight.
Our departing gift - 5 cheetahs - 3 on the road and 2 in the grass! This was very ...
... briefing, and a nice buffet dinner. As a hospitality professional, I just marveled at their ability to outfit and sustain such a beautiful facility with first class rooms, food and service out literally in the middle of the Africa Serengeti Plains. I was totally exhausted, and I mean "wiped out", we went to bed at 9PM and I got up at 3:30 to finish this blog. Today we head for a real full day of safari adventure from 7:30 AM to 5PM. Lala salama........in Swahili.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMbalageti Safari Camp Ltd Serengeti National Park
The rooms were nice and the beds were good. The public areas are very pretty especially the swimming pool and all overlook the vast plains of the Serengeti. They are however, quite a distance from some of the chalets so expect to do a lot of walking. There was supposed to be a shuttle from the welcome center to the restaurant building, but it didn't work well and the little bus they substituted was difficult to get in and out of so I walked. The camp is in a very remote area which is both good and bad. Some days we drove an hour and half before we saw any game other than the resident zebra and wildebeest. There was a group of hyena that seemed to make their home along the road in and out of the camp. It was fun to see them everyday. The chalets are large with large bathrooms, however a little strange. There was a clawfoot bathtub on a deck outside our bathroom but it was dirty and had no water flowing to it. Really wasn't private enough for my taste anyway. The floor of the bathroom and other floors in the camp have rocks imbedded in them (for a decorative touch) but it is easy to trip on these. The food has an Indian flair and the four days we were there no cooked vegetables so I finally broke down and ate raw salad. No one seemed to get ill from it.
