As mentioned in the Value price bracket, when focusing on the Western corridor Asanja’s Moru Grumeti is in the perfect location. It is a classic tented camp with spacious suites and high levels of guiding and service. A very good option for good value tented accommodation and a camp we are using more and more at this time of year.
Lemala’s Ewanjan is the next property I’ll mention for value alone. Located in the central plains the value on offer here is undeniable due to a stay for 4 pay for 3 deal they run in June. Lemala have a solid reputation as one of the regions best safari companies; guiding and service standards are high here.
If you could splash out slightly then the stand out option is Asilia Safaris Dunia Camp. Known as one of the best camps in the central plains Asilia themselves are one of the best operators in East Africa. They have incredibly good low season rates that combine well with their Ngorongoro Crater camp ‘the Highlands’ for an unbelievably good value stay at this time of year. Their other property in the Eastern Serengeti - Namiri Plains - is also very good at this time of year but can run the risk of fewer migratory herds. Asilia work on the basis of a 'tiered' pricing system whereby less busy days offer better value...so rates can change day by day.
Serengeti Safari Camp is the next place I’ll mention – the first-ever mobile and arguably the very best of the mobile camps. Nomad Tanzania run this camp – a company known for owning some of the finest authentic product in Africa. The guiding here is superb whilst a high quality, authentic experience is the companies focus. I cannot speak of them highly enough – think adventurous nights under canvas and chats with your guides around campfires under the stars. That’s what safari is all about! On its own the property offers a four for three deal, however, Nomad also have the exceptional Entamanu at the Ngorongoro Crater – and a five for four deal in June that makes staying here very good value overall.
