Serengeti National Park, Northern Tanzania

Featured Safari Destination by GURU



Set plum in the middle of one of the richest game areas in the Serengeti, this bush home is explicitly designed with privacy and little children in mind. Mkombe is a great place for groups of friends and families to indulge in a one of a kind self-contained house in the Serengeti, with flexibility on everything.

Mkombe was a guide who cherished this area and connected solidly with children – and their parents. He would have seriously loved it here, as will anyone who stays in the house named after this legend.

As the name would imply, Mkombe is about children, and children of all ages are not only welcomed but catered for in specials ways. Babysitting is available when needed, and plenty of bits and bots for the young explorers of the family.

Two secure children's' rooms comfortably sleep three children each, with netted canopies for mosquito protection. You private chef on hand whips up easy meals for even the toughest of young progeny.

Mkombe has two swimming pools and WIFI throughout; however, you don't only come to the Serengeti for luxury!

Mkombe’s House offers a uniquely private wildlife experience, with highly trained resident Nomad Guides, each with their own 4x4 for your group alone.

Plenty of big cats and other predators are here all year round, hunting the intense concentrations of game that feed on Lamai’s fertile plains. Alternatively, follow the Mara River in search of enormous Nile crocodiles, or the brave that near its watery banks to quench and everlasting African thirst.

Visit at the end of the dry season when the migration thunders through the dusty plains to have access to the Mara waters, and one of the world biggest wildlife extravaganzas plays out before your eyes.
