Part of the Legendary Expeditions Camps portfolio, Mbono Tented Camp is a luxury camp on a private concession bordering the Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania. The camp sits by the banks of the Mbono river and offers superb safari opportunities whether by day or night.
Throughout Mbono Tented Camp, the décor takes a sense of authentic campaign-style safari and adds to it all the comforts of home. The communal areas include a large, stylishly decorated lounge and dining room: the feel is defined by antique colonial-style furniture, local crafts and high-quality linens. There is a viewing-deck that looks out over the Serengeti. Wifi is available in the main areas, such as the lounge and dining tent, but not in the guest tents.
Service & food
The service at Mbono Tented Camp is expert, friendly and attentive. The a big draw here is the outdoors, and while meals can be taken at the large communal tables indoors, just as often meals and drinks can be requested to be served at remote but carefully selected spots in the surrounding wilderness. Menus are flexible and the food well-prepared, the cuisine bringing together local ingredients and contemporary techniques.
There are six tented suites at Mbono Tented Camp, which can be booked either separately or on an exclusive-use basis. Each has king-size or twin beds, and an extra bed can be arranged for those travelling with children. Each has a spacious interior and deck, and roll-up canvas sides bring the expansive views inside. The décor continues the luxury-campaign feel of the communal areas: elegantly draped beds, the furniture a mixture of the chic and antique, plenty of touches of local colour. Facilities are all en-suite and include hot and cold water, high-quality toiletries, twin sinks and flushing toilets.
Visitors to Mbono Tented Camp have access to their own private vehicle and guide to allow them to take advantage, by day or night, of access to this exclusive concession in one of the most wildlife-rich areas in Africa.
