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.

We had a wonderful time at Zawadi Camp. The staff are super hospitable and did everything to make our stay perfect. The food was very tasty. You get breakfast, lunch packages for the safari and dinner. I always got a vegetarian alternative. At breakfast we could always see wild animals passing by the camp. All in all, simply an incredible experience that everyone should experience at least once.

It was the best african experience at this boutique camp. It really felt like a true serengeti adventure for couples or family. Everything was great, from the location to the friendly staff. We loved our tent, the amazing lounge and restaurant, the neat cleaning and the adventure options that they offered us. We strongly recommend this camp to all travelers.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of feb. Just wanna say how amazing our stay was. In the middle of the Serengeti with no fences allowing animals to come right in to camp. We had Topis visit us during breakfast and couple jackals at dinner time. We heard lions during the night too. All this said the camp felt very safe as the the staff there escort you to your tent and you have a radio to call them aswell. The staff are incredibly friendly and make this camp extra special. Food was lovely even the pack lunch boxes were nice. The tents itself have everything you need and super comfy beds. All in all I would definitely recommend this camp for the location and staff. Thanks for a wonderful stay

We found Zawadi Camp the perfect place to stay in Serengti National parc! You sleep in the middle of the wild life in a basis tent but with everything you need! Really comfortable beds, hot shower, beautiful breakfast and diner! The staff took really good care for us and we found the cooking amazing! We would definitely recommend it to friends and family. And go back if one day we go again to Serengeti!

Zawadi is a very good camp in Central Serengeti. Tents are modern, well equiped. Family camp event exceed expectations of tented camps - wooden walls inside, modern furnitures. Bush dinner in Zawadi is something unique in mid-range camps. And food is completely different to other camps - like fusion cusine of local and European dishes. I was there with my customers od AfricanFive.com company and all of them really enjoyed stary in Zawadi. Staff is very nice and helpful.
