Lodging and Accomodations during an IBEX Safari in Tanzania

Mobile Tented Camp

This safari makes use of exclusive, luxury wildlife lodges and tented camps. In addition to enhancing the “feel” of the traditional East Africa safari, the tented camp provides all of the comforts of the lodges but offers far less crowded conditions and more personalized services. We hope you will savor your trip to East Africa for the rest of your life and we believe the private tented camp offers the most intimate safari experience. Below are short descriptions of some of the accomodations that you will experience on our journey. For more detailed information, please visit the lodge/camp website.

Buffalo Luxury Camp: This premier permanent tented camp consists of 15 grand canvas tents which have been uniquely designed to embrace the beauty of the Serengeti and create an intimacy with the surrounding environment. Its location, just outside of the national park, enhances your opportunity for a unique cultural and wildlife experience.

Ngorongoro Serena Lodge: on the crater's rim, this spectacular lodge provides an incredible view of one of the most beautiful wildlife arenas in the world.

Giraffes, Tanzania
Perched on the jagged rim of the crater, wreathed in morning mist, camouflaged in river-stone and cloaked in indigenous creepers, the Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge is a triumph of ecological and architectural fusion. Sensitively constructed so as to take nothing from its environment whilst affording endless vistas over the heat-shimmering reaches of the crater below, the clustered boulder-built buildings of the Lodge hug the crater rim, linked by rope-lashed timber walkways that skirt the buttressed roots of ancient, liana-hung trees.

The interior, radiating out from the primeval log fire glowing at the heart of the Lodge, blends the concentrated hush of a game-viewing hide with the ochre, rust and charcoal images of a prehistoric cavern. Lit by flaming wall-lanterns, clad in gigantic volcanic boulders and decorated by the iron spears, bright-beaded robes and intricately carven artefacts of the Maasai, the Lodge is a unique blend of world-class luxury, timeless volcanic splendour and ethnic style. As for the views, from lilac-streaked sunrise, to indigo star-studded night, the immeasurably ancient Ngorongoro Crater delivers a theatre of vistas, most unchanged since the dawnof time.

Bougainvillea Safari Lodge

Giraffes, Tanzania

The Bougainvillea lodge consists of twenty-four cottages, each with a cozy room, netted king or twin beds, a fireplace, large bathroom with shower and a veranda from which to enjoy the views of the tropical gardens. There is a large common area building housing the reception area, lounge, bar, gift shop and dining rooms. The swimming pool sits in the centre of the property and is surrounded by the cottages and gardens.


Serena Mountain Village provides comfort and rest for you at the end of your IBEX safari. With its shaded buildings and brand new common areas, you will find comfort and rest after an exceptional 11 day safari.
