What to Watch Out For

This place is AMAZING! The views are amazing and the rooms are super clean and spacious. It’s so relaxing to come back to your room after your safari. You’ll also see so much wildlife right outside your room because you’re right in the Serengeti! If you’re going on your honeymoon in Tanzania you HAVE to stay here.

I went on a 15-day safari in Tanzania and Sametu Camp was by far my favorite accommodation. The meals were all delicious and the food was plentiful. We saw many wildlife from our deck and the sunsets were spectacular! The Sametu staff provided a heartwarming stay. I will never forget this experience.

Danal H - United StatesAmazing Staff, Amazing Accomodations.

I've done several safari trips across East & Southern Africa. This was by far the most memorable. The rooms are well appointed, the beds were very comfortable. The Safari itself was superb. We saw tree climbing Lions, Cheetahs feasting after a recent kill, Leopards in trees, & of course the start of the Great Migration!
