Serengeti Bushtops

Serengeti Bushtops is an alluring safari camp in the Serengeti whose tented suites offer butler service and private hot tubs overlooking the open plains.

This alluring safari camp offers 5-star luxury in the most enchanting setting – the plains of the great Serengeti.

All come with round-the-clock butler service, panoramic views and plenty of hot water for baths and showers.

Gourmet a la carte meals can be enjoyed on the privacy of your personal deck, or in the elegant open-sided mess tent. Wine is a specialty, with a distinctive ‘wine wall’ containing labels to suit any taste. If you prefer, you can also picnic in the bush.

Aside from game drives in open-sided vehicles that can be undertaken on a half or full day basis, things to do at Serengeti Bushtops include hot air balloon safaris and game walks. All wildlife-based activities are accompanied by eagle-eyed rangers and spotters, because two pairs of eyes are better than one!

Tanzania Overview

What is the best thing to do in Tanzania?
A wildlife safaris is an absolute must as Tanzania is one of Africa’s great wildlife destinations. Witnessing tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra in the Serengeti is an unquestionable highlight, whilst the Ngorongoro Crater is one of the natural wonders of the world. A trek to the top of Africa’s highest peak – Mount Kilimanjaro – is a bucket-list experience for any adventure enthusiast.

What is the climate like in Tanzania?
Much of the Serengeti is over 5,000ft so temperatures vary between 22°- 29°C. It is generally sunny and windy, with rain falling between November and May as isolated showers. The low-lying Rift Valley is much hotter (30°-35°C), while the coast is hot and humid. The Ngorongoro Highlands can be cool to cold at night.

How do I get to Tanzania?
There are only two European airlines – KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Turkish Airlines – that fly directly into the country. Otherwise, flying via the Kenyan capital of Nairobi (where far more major airlines fly to including British Airways and Air France) is another option. From here travellers can then fly to numerous airports in Tanzania.

For travellers coming from the United States at least one stop is required. The easiest airlines for connections are either with KLM or Qatar Airways via Doha. From Doha there are also direct flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport.

What can I combine Tanzania with?
Tanzania is often combined with other countries including neighbouring Kenya or either Uganda or Rwanda for a trek to see the gorillas. A few days on the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar is a very popular way to end a Tanzanian safari.
