Kananga Special Tented Camp is a very comfortable and reasonably priced tented camp at Seronera, in the heart of the Serengeti National Park.
Hidden in an enclave, surrounded by spectacular views and abundant wildlife, our special tented camp sits at the foot of the Banagi hills, overlooking a beautiful savannah resplendent with the emblematic East African Thorn trees.
The secret of our dishes lies in their simplicity. Besides the continental or English breakfast every morning, our menu for lunch and dinner is always varied and combines traditional and healthy recipes.
For lunch we offer the option of a packed lunch on safari or a cooked lunch back at the camp, depending on your plans for the day.
In the evening, our chef will prepare a delicious three course meal, based on African or Mediterranean cuisine, accompanied by a selection of the finest wines from South Africa. And, don’t miss our homemade desserts or cakes! (Upon request).
All rates include full board regime with unlimited mineral water, tea and coffee at no extra cost. Guests staying in our VIP tents will also have beer, wine and sodas available to them free of charge.
Watching the zebras crossing Banagi Plain at sunset while sipping a cold glass of South African wine, enjoying a delicious three-course dinner to the sounds of the African night or sitting back in our comfortable sofas and relaxing after an exciting day’s safari are even more enjoyable in our new spacious Mess Tents.
Each Mess Tent is unique to that particular camp; i.e. guests staying in our Classic Camp will share this communal area with 10 other Classic Tents and our VIP guests with a maximum of 5 other VIP tents.
All Mess Tents offer a dining area where our friendly staff will be happy to cater for your every need, as well as a chill-out area where you can peruse our small library, recharge cameras, mobile phones or laptops and enjoy our bar service whilst you soak up the spectacular atmosphere.
And, to add the finishing touch to your evening before turning in for the night, perhaps we can tempt you with a digestive and some friendly chat around the campfire whilst admiring the sparkling African skies.
