What Our Guests Say About Us (as seen on Trip Advisor)
Heaven on Earth!
For the second time, I've taken a group of people to Buffalo Luxury Camp. For the second time, I'm blown away by the experience. The "tents" are luxurious with tiled shower, soaking tub, and two sinks. The beds are huge with comfortable mattress, bed linens, and pillows. The sitting area in each tent is an added bit of space.
Staff member wakes you up in the morning with fresh coffee or tea and a pastry. The meals in the dining room are fabulous. Staff is helpful and well trained.
A perfect place to base when on safari in Tanzania.
What a treat this place was with the luxury tent type of accommodations The food was very good and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We found the African hospitality to be the best part if our visit to this region.
We (family of 5) stayed here to get access to Northern Serengeti in order to access the Great Migration. It cost a pretty penny but it was a pretty unbelievable experience.
The tents you stay in are nothing short of luxury, with adequate hot water, very comfortable beds, modern and elegant amenities and furnishings. The service is bend-over-backwards good. The food is really excellent. Our Roy Safari operator informed the staff that we were celebrating my mom's birthday and the cook came out with a full-blown birthday cake that evening!
One unique aspect of the grounds is that cars can be driven off-road, since it is a concession property. So, we did the night safari, which was really exhilarating. There is a bit more suspense in trying to finding animals in pitch darkness, with only the aid of a (pretty powerful) flashlight.
Probably the nicest tented camp we visited
We stayed here for two nights during our photo safari, and we wish it had been longer. The luxury tents are gorgeous and very, very comfortable. The camp is just outside the Serengeti park, and it sits on a hillside overlooking the savannah. Breathtaking views.
The staff were very accommodating and helpful, and the food was first rate. The main lodge is beautiful and upscale, and the patio area had an open wood fire every night where we enjoyed cocktails while relaxing from a busy day on safari. Simply perfect.
I hope we get a chance to go back. We'll stay longer next time.
Amazing Location and Wonderful Staff
I stayed here for two nights in June. I cannot say enough about the staff at this lodge. I felt so pampered and cared for relative to my whole well being. I was fortunate one of my nights to sit by the fire and have wonderful conversation with the manager and one of his staff. I hope to be back again soon!!
Buffalo is the Best in the Bush!
Our family stayed at Buffalo camp for two nights during our 2 week visit to Tanzania, and they were two of our best days on our trip! The camp is extremely luxurious considering where you are! The room was beautiful, very comfortable and the bathroom divine! The view from our room was amazing. The lounge and food was some of the best we had. But the highlight of our stay was the people! William was our favorite and was so open in sharing his life and traditions with us. The chef was amazing, and when I complimented one of his dishes, he actually hand wrote out the recipe for me!!! We did a night drive which was a lot of fun, and did a walking tour, which was fantastic! If you have time you must visit the local Maasai village, a real highlight of our trip!
Absolutely the BEST place we have stayed in Tanzania and the bush.
If you visit northern Serengeti National Park and don't stay at Buffalo Luxury Camp, you are cheating yourself out of one terrific experience! This was by far, the best facility we have been to in our three photo safaris to Tanzania. I can say without hesitation that we will be back on our next trip and our stay time at Buffalo will be much longer than this trip.
Luxury in Tents. It doesn't get better than this!!
We love staying in tents in Tanzania, being able to hear the night and morning sounds, and Buffalo Camp offers luxury tents. We used to think that tents and luxury didn’t go together, but they certainly do at Buffalo. The tents are fully ensuite, beautifully furnished, and very comfortable. There was an expansive view from our front porch. The additional benefit of Buffalo Camp is that, because it is out of the Serengeti National Park, we were able to hike in the surrounding hills and do a night safari. Both opportunities offered us wonders we’d never experienced in Tanzania before and certainly enhanced our experience. The meals we had were gourmet, delicious and beautifully presented. The staff was always helpful and courteous. And, finally, Buffalo Camp is committed to its involvement with the local community. They carry locally made items in their gift shop and they contributed to the development of the local dispensary. This was our 3rd trip to Tanzania and, hopefully, not our last. We look forward to returning to Buffalo Camp!
This was the first experience of our safari with a "Luxury" camp and I must say it was a hard act to follow. My wife and I along with 6 close traveling friends spent 2 nights at the Buffalo camp and had a truly great time. Nikki and the staff were constantly surprising us with little extras every day that just made us feel like we were part of the family and were really at home. The view overlooking the game reserve was spectacular. the "tents" were luxury camping at their best. This experience set the tone for our trip and helped make the adventure one we will not soon forget.
The management and staff of Buffalo Luxury Camp look forward to welcoming you for an experience of a lifetime!
