Serengeti Bushtops is a brand new luxury tented camp in the wild north of the Serengeti National Park. The camp is the epitome of bush chic and offers unsurpassed luxury and style in these magical and remote surroundings. Each luxury tent faces the sunset and is open on two sides, giving you an extraordinary panoramic view of the plains.
An enormous 120sqm open-sided living area creates an overwhelming sense of space and a stylish peaceful retreat from which to enjoy all that this remarkable area has to offer. Bedecked with beautiful wooden flooring each tent’s lavish facilities include an en suite shower area, large private terrace, a hot tub, writing desk, 24-hour butler service, 24 hour power, a dining table and massages in your tent whenever you wish.
The camp is a wonderful blend of relaxation and refinement, luxurious home comforts and exemplary attention to detail and service that is at its very best from June to October each year as the ‘Great Migration’ makes it way up into the northern Serengeti and across the border into Kenya’s Masai Mara. The scenery in this part of the Serengeti is spectacular with open savannah broken up by valleys, great rocky Kopjes and the Mara River where the thousands of wildebeest congregate before taking the plunge as one and risking the crocodiles in the quest for the rich grasslands further north.
Perhaps surprisingly, Serengeti Bushtops sits exclusively in this remote region of the Serengeti, affording guests the rare opportunity for secluded game drives well away from the principle tourist circuit when expert guides enhance your stay by sharing their knowledge and experience gleaned during a lifetime in the bush. Few properties pay homage to the surrounding environment with the same breathtaking effect, effortlessly ensuring an exclusive proximity to the Africa that you have come to see, far from the crowds that might be expected to throng to so unique a destination.
Serengeti Bushtops is used as a base; a spring board for an early morning game drive, a break for a sumptuous lunch, a respite from the heat of the day and the finale to a day’s adventure where stories can be swapped around a fire or a cold drink can be enjoyed from your hot tub to the sounds of the African bush as a lion roars or a hyena cackles nearby. With just twelve tents the camp is able to offer an excellent level of attention and service while ensuring that a relaxed and friendly atmosphere prevails.
Between definitive wildlife encounters and classic African adventures, you may gather for elegant candlelit meals and safari tales in the dining tent have ‘sundowner’ cocktails or picturesque banquets atop a nearby kopje, enjoy tranquil siestas watching magnificent game wander close by, or spend contemplative hours on your private veranda taking stock of what you have seen.
