Lions Paw Camp

We stayed at Lions Paw, Woodlands and Sametu Camps and our experiences were extraordinary. We listened to lions in the camp, had elephants come through Sametu Camp and were lulled to sleep by the sounds of the night. We laughed with the staff, listened to stories and went to bed with full bellies every night.

Superb accommodations. We continue to be surprised with the quality and friendliness and comfort and service and…well…EVERYTHING!

-Michael and Sarah W. (June 2016)

The staff at all the camps were outstanding in their attentiveness to our needs while we were there. Comfort beyond expectations – we always felt like we were treated like royalty.  We were especially glad that we stayed at River Camp for three days!

 

All of the camps were comfortable and served delicious meals. The best part thought was by far the accommodating staff who were knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining.

The camp manager and crew at both Lions Paw and Sametu Camp are like family. If they had been younger we would have adopted them.

Such friendly staff.

Brad and Jackie B. (July 2016)

We stayed at River Camp, Sametu Camp and Lions Paw on our safari. Although the camps were located in different areas of the Serengeti, had different staff  and even different ambiance, the common thread was the exceptional service. Each staff member we encountered was friendly, knowledgeable and provided outstanding personalized service. In addition, the wildlife viewing at both River Camp and Sametu Camp was absolutely amazing. In fact, we skipped a morning game drive and instead set up our tripods and took amazing photos from the main tent. What an experience!!!

I stayed at Lions Paw Camp, Sametu Camp and River Camp. The food was great, the beds comfortable and the camping staff were great hosts. (Sept 2015)

The hospitality at Mara River and Sametu was SO VERY outstanding, we could not have asked for anything more.

River Camp was wonderful. We really enjoyed the Maasai stories each night by the campfire.

Extraordinary experience! From the location of the camps, to the size of the tents and the fabulous staff. Even the meals were exceptional. All were healthy, delicious and well-presented. The chefs were truly exemplary. (June 2015)

Sametu Camp

The tented camps were amazing and the family tent at Sametu was absolutely perfect for us with two younger children. Separate bathrooms and the ability to relax as a family in our own tent was a perfect ending to our time in the bush. The staff were so sweet to our children and the graciousness and warmth of Jonas and Msafiri are something we will never forget.

I am in my 80’s so when we first drove up to Sametu, I said I wanted an upgrade. But within one hour the kindness of the staff, the comfort of the huge tent, the personal attention and warmth provided by the staff and fantastic food all made this a highlight of our safari.

Everything at Sametu was great. From the time we arrived at the camp with a genuinely sincere welcome from Jonas, the camp manager, to the friendliness of the staff, the camps atmosphere, the delicious meals and the impeccably clean tents. It was our favorite out of all the other accommodations we stayed at.

Woodlands Camp

The camps were great, particularly Woodlands and especially Sametu (which was our favourite – the setting , spacious well designed tents and contents (the long bench for luggage is great). We also loved Sametu because of the manager Jonas – who is such a nice, gentle, efficient person! We had an interesting walk one night to ours (with Jonas and Ima) one evening, when we picked up, in torchlight, two lionesses about 50 feet to our side. We felt perfectly safe with our escorts!
