Serengeti National Park from Lake Victoria

Serengeti Stop Over. Pleasant adequate bandas. Restaurant a bit basic and staff relaxed (?boss away) . 100,000Tsh double seemed a bit expensive.

Serengeti. We hired a Toyota Landcruiser and tents to spend 2 night in Seronera and one in Ngorongoro Crater from Serengeti Expedition of Mwanza +255 282542222, +255 28 254000, +255 787319801, website: They were the cheapest of 3 Mwanza quotes ( and Dolphintours –mainly self drive) and they were very good, experienced and professional. The cost of 3 people for 3 night camping was $1600 plus park entrance fees. Kiroyera tours of Bukoba were about $1000 more.

Seronera public campsite had lovely tiled toilets and showers but no water until the tour operators refused to pay the camping fees. Inadequate provision and some showers were not working. Camping site has low priority as far as Tanapa concerned.

Simba A was fabulous situation on Crater rim and Male toilets and hot showers were fine in one block, Female toilets/showers were shambolic and unpleasant. However, the new toilet/shower block a short walk away was clean and usable. Be aware of buffalo grazing around your tent at night!
