The trees of the central Serengeti hide some of the wild’s most intricate creations – an infinitely diverse array of woven nests (Kiota, in Swahili). Like the bird, we have woven Kiota into the Seronera Valley’s hills as a relief from a long day’s adventure.
Perched on a hilltop, Kiota Camp offers a Birdseye view of the Seronera River Valley’s abundance. Birds plays have an important part in Kiota’s design and atmosphere.
