Africa Safari Serengeti Ikoma is a comfortable safari accommodation located within the Serengeti Ecosystem and only 300 metres from the National Park boundary, but within the Game Controlled Area of the Tanzanian Wildlife Authority (TAWA).

Located between Serengeti Seronera, Grumeti and Ikorongo Game Reserves the location is perfect for exploring the Serengeti and all that there is to do in one of the country's largest National Parks. Due to its proximity to the Grumeti River, Africa Safari Serengeti Ikoma has a backyard full of animals and the Great Migration is there several months of the year.

The property is spacious and has accommodation to suit every budget; ranging from a campsite to pre-built safari tents to Comfort Rooms. These canvas rooms with permanent bathrooms offer stunning views of the Serengeti from your bed and balcony. Meanwhile, the Ikona Game Controlled Area has also proven to be a hidden treasure when it comes to wildlife. The area is home to migrating animals from Serengeti National Park and the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya.

Together with a TAWA ranger, night game drives and bushwalks can also be made in this area.
