Kiota Camp is the first place I’ll mention; the choice for our most economical trips. This adventurous little camp offers great value for money and bags of character. Its simple approach to safari still sees spacious rooms and en-suites; a level of comfort that surprises most travellers. It is located in the central plains so avoids the high prices of flying to the far north.
Competition to Kiota is Asanja’s Moru Serengeti which is also located in the central plains. The camps are very difficult to choose a favourite from, with both camps guaranteeing good guiding and service. We’ve known the owners of Asanja for years; it is a more established property as such than Kiota. Availability however often decides your choice between these two.
Flying up to the far north and you can catch those river crossings but prices do rise. There are also a number of camps up here which drop their rates in November. Lemala’s Kuria Hills is a perfect example of this; a truly luxurious property that also offers a stay for 4 pay for 3 deal. Combining Kuri with Lemala Ngorongoro is a very good value trip for the comfort on offer.
