Kiota is a beautiful and great value Camp, set in the central Serengeti allowing for fantastic year-round game viewing, particularly if you have an interest in big cats.

The Camp itself is relatively simple but very well done, offering an authentic safari experience. Sleeping under canvas in the middle of the Serengeti, surrounded by wildlife, is what life at Kioto Camp is all about.

Kiota Camp Serengeti 

A permanent tented Camp that is situated in the heart of the central Serengeti. Overlooking its valley, the views from the camp are beautiful.

Its ideal position takes advantage of the year-round game viewing, especially in the Seronera Valley, famous for its healthy populations of big cats, in particular lions and cheetah.

The Great Wildebeest Migration passes through twice a year too, allowing you to fall asleep to the sound of thousands of wildebeest calling around April/May and again in November.

The Camp is comprised of 10 ensuite tents each with private shaded verandah, flush toilets, and a safari-style bucket shower. 

There is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings during the middle of the day. in between game drives.

If an all-day safari is more your style though, this is also possible with picnic lunches and breakfasts available. All you have to do is ask!

There is a large dining tent and fire pit for evening campfires, as well as a separate lounge area that includes a bar and a well-stocked library. Wi-Fi can be accessed in the lounge area but not in the rooms, meaning you can forget about your emails and truly immerse yourself in nature.

There is plenty to keep you busy here, with game drives in open vehicles to maximize wildlife viewings, options for having bush dinners and bush breakfasts, a romantic private dinner under the stars, and campfires in the evening. 

Kiota is a great Camp for those looking for an authentic safari experience at a reasonable price and works well with its sister – Chaka Mobile Camp, which moves from the Ndutu Plains in the South to the Kogatende region in North of the Serengeti with the Great Migration.

Whilst Kiota combines brilliantly with Chaka during certain times of the year, a typical Northern Itinerary would see you spend an overnight in Arusha at Rivertrees before heading to Ngorongoro Farm House or Plantation Lodge.

Spending a couple of days in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area will allow you to explore Lake Manyara on your way there before spending a day on the Crater floor.

Here you will experience the unique eco-system that is the Ngorongoro Crater which is full of Africa’s large mammals and so much more.

Finishing off your safari holiday with a trip to the island of Zanzibar is a must. With Tanzania’s great internal flight routes, getting to the Indian Ocean Island is easy.

A fantastic option on the island is Pongwe Beach Hotel which is excellent value for money.

Apart from ending the trip by the beach, Zanzibar also allows you to spend a night or two in the cultural city of Stone Town.

The Park Hyatt is the hotel of choice here. It is beautifully modern and luxurious and in the best location to enjoy some coastal scenery and city life.

Price start from $ 645 per person
