&Beyond Grumeti Serengeti River Lodge


Luxury out west

Located in the remote western reaches of the Serengeti, this elegant lodge sits on the banks of a tributary to the Grumeti River.

Walking into the guest area upon arrival is a real wow moment, with spacious decks overlooking the river while the camp’s rim-flow swimming pool provides a view of the seasonal hippo pools below.

The ten elegant and very spacious suites are flooded with light, with wonderful views from their enormous beds, outdoor showers and sparkling private plunge pools. A family suite can sleep groups of four.

Due to its far-flung location, there are very few lodges in this pristine section of the park, which means you can enjoy the wilderness in exclusivity. It is ideally positioned for sightings of dramatic river crossings when the famous Great Wildebeest Migration is in the area, but the wildlife viewing is exceptional year-round.

    Game drives

    Twice-daily game drives from the lodge often encounter large lion prides and clans of hyena, big herds of resident plains game as well as the special black-and-white colobus monkeys, found nowhere else in the Serengeti. Rarely seeing other vehicles makes for an exceptional game viewing experience.
