Ikoma Safari CampIkoma Safari Camp

Ikoma Safari Camp is a large size permanent tented camp located at Ikoma, just outside Serengeti National Park.

This is a rather basic camp, providing an average level of service and consisting of about 30 tent each with en-suite bathroom, hot shower and electricity. It includes the bar, the restaurant and the campfire.

This is a potentially interesting area between June and July and some years between October and November when the great Serengeti migration should be passing through however since this is just a transit zone herds do not linger on the spot more than a week or two and it is extremely difficult to predict when that will occurs. When herds have gone there is not much game left. The camp also suffer from the proximity to the main road leading to Musoma and to crop farmers villages whereby, unlike other camps in this area located inside large concessions, Ikoma Safari camp cannot even offer interesting night game drives or walking safari. In dry season [from June/July to October/November] it is better, in our opinion, to opt for a camp located in central Serengeti with easy access to the main game viewing area and from here eventually game drive to Ikoma.
In all other months of the year and according to migratory patterns, Ikoma is too far away from main game viewing areas to be of interest ...

Unless specifically requested we normally do not spontaneously propose Ikoma safari camp.
Among mid level camps in central Serengeti we would consider Serengeti kati kati.
