Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you want rose petals on the bed each day and Michelin star dinners you should look for something else. If you wish to be in nature rather than looking at nature this is the perfect place. No swimmingpool and no luxury, but ideally placed for game-watching with very friendly, welcoming and serviceminded staff.

Now this is the life! Nothing like getting down directly in nature, one with all around us and animals all abound! We felt totally safe zipped up in our tents and secured. The camps were better than I had expected. After camping on Kilimanjaro, this was pretty awesome - wood floors, luxurious beds, hot showers, hot food! I slept like a baby even hearing hyena at night! Beautiful sunrise and sunset view. Super cool staff and very friendly! Good conversation and great beer and wine flowing. Far surpassed my expectations of luxury camping! Unique setup as electronics are charged in the main bar lounge tent and dining in a separate tent but this all seems like safety and to conserve energy as everything is run by the sun and generator. Really cool experience!

Magical 2 night stay in the heart of the serengeti with Mickey, Bob and co. Camp initially looked basic but looks can be deceiving. Tents were fabulous, en suite, hot showers, and comfortable beds. Hot food and packed lunches were excellent. All 11 of us including 7 children were given the warmest of welcomes. Farewell party had us all singing and dancing at 8am as we departed for northern serengeti. Absolutely fantastic experience.

We had a 3 night stay at this camp as part of a 2 week safari tour.
Driving up to the camp it really didn't look like much, but the tents were spacious, luxurious and very comfortable.
The staff very accomodating, friendly and ready willing to assist you with any request where possible.
It was amazing to hear lions roaring in the distance late at night and to see and/or hear some wildlife wondering near tents of a night.
On departure we were treated with a song and dance by the staff to see us off on our way. Such a personal touch to a great place to be right in the middle of the African parks.

Kisura Serengeti Tented accommodation was wonderful. We had two nights here and could have definitely stayed longer as the beds were very comfortable. We stayed in tent "chui" which means leopard. It had a QS bed and two singles; all with netting for the evening (which was set up by the staff before retiring for the evening).
The tent had no heating or cooling facilities, so we were fortunate the the weather was very comfortable during our stay.
The bathroom facilities included a shower (the staff filled up the 'buckets', so you had to let them know when you intended to shower), a screened off toilet (full flushing), and a vanity/sink area.
The only thing that was missing was a mirror.
The bedroom and the bathroom both had separate lighting and completely zipped up for safety at night.
When you went from your sleeping tent to the dining tent (and return) you were escorted by a Masai tribesman for safety.
The evening meal was a fixed menu but beautifully done. Great presentation and delicious. In the morning breakfast was buffet style.
There was wifi in the dining and lounge/bar tents only.
Sadly my photos of the inside of the sleeping tents are panorama and i cant upload them :(

It is located in central region of serengeti national park. Recommended only for those who do bag pack trekking. Very dim lights, Washrooms quality, ambience. Will Not recommend for kids as the premises is also not fenced. They do provide the escort service after the sun set. The food spread was below average.

The staff was courteous. They had wifi connectivity throughout the premises.

My only regret from our Safari was that I didn't stay more nights at Kisura!! Our first impression was a good one, we were greeted at the jeep with umbrellas because we arrived during a rainfall, then offered hot towels to freshen up and juice! Staff was warm and welcoming, and showed us around camp. The tents were very large and sturdy and had full size beds and large bathrooms, all fully stocked. The bed and bedding was the most comfortable out of the 10 hotels/camps we stayed at during our trip, and we had the best sleep! Because it was our first Safari, I was afraid to sleep in a tent with the animals around, but the Maasai were outside guarding the camp all night, and I never felt nervous. There were several giraffes eating from the trees when we arrived, and hyenas laughing and wart hogs or hippos snorting during the night, but felt very secure and safe. There is a lounge tent with sofas and chairs and a bar where you can have a drink, and the bartender is very friendly. The food was served in the dining tent, and it was amazing, some of the best we had on our trip, especially the bread and rolls that the cook makes fresh in the kitchen tent!! Due to the weather, we missed the "African Bush TV" or campfire, but I understand that it is a lot of fun. You will not be disappointed on your stay here, and the friendly staff will make you want to return! I know we will!!

Tented camp fully equipped wifi and hot shower included.
Nice chef that creates a beautiful dinner in the middle of the sahara district. Unique show every night at the camp facing the animal promenade to bed (giraffes, ienas, mangustas, turtles,...)
Fire place talks with Masai people. Good feelings.thanks to the local people that are really friendly

Nice tents with real bed, lavatory more than ok.
Very good food, fresh fruit on every occasion, nice lunch boxes.
Wildlife visits the camp during the day and night, the guards watch over the guests and make you feel at home.
Super friendly service.

Gold Star 5/5 for service!

Location: surrounded in the wilderness in the middle of the Serengeti and you can hear the hyenas at night, but we felt safe. Staff was very assuring of our safety and we followed rules to not leave our tent unaccompanied.

The beds were so comfortable. I had probably some of my best sleep there!

Electricity in room for lighting is okay/dim - but it's a tented camp.
You do need to power your electronics and use wifi in the bar tent and they do have limited access to that but we did not know that ahead of time of arrival as we booked through a tour company. But we made it work! Just come prepared with external batteries for your electronics!

Showers have limited hot water and unfortunately other guests abused the water and used up all the hot water our first night but we had hot water the next night.
Bathroom is clean and nice.

We felt completely safe including all of our belongings. The staff are very hospitable and want to make sure you are safe and have a good time. They even went to the market to get a wine that we liked without asking because they knew we liked it. The food was very good. Unfortunately, what's a trip to Africa without some food disagreement. They made sure I saw a doctor in the Serengeti and got medication and they tended to me and rearranged some tour I had. They were so very kind and warm! Genuinely good people. I would absolutely recommend and trust these staff.

This experience was a good one for Tanzania. I'm sad to say it was ruined by a hotel in Zanzibar but my memory here was beautiful. I have only a few phone photos since my camera and entire trip pictures were stolen by Gold Zanzibar staff in the locked room at the resort in Zanzibar :(
