Being a private, sole use facility means activities are scheduled around the guests’ own desires and time frames. Daily game drives are led by a private guide and can accommodate children. The Serengeti is home to a wide range of animals from the grazing water buffaloes, warthogs, eland, topi, gazelle, impalas and giraffes as well as their predators the lions, leopards, and spotted hyenas.Guided bush walks for those twelve and older are the ideal way to explore the land for a closer view of the animals and plant life and the chance to study animal tracks. For bird enthusiasts, the camp provides a great spot to watch some of the 500-bird species including five rare birds: the grey-breasted spurfowl, the Fischer’s lovebird, the rufous-tailed weaver, the Usambiro barbet, and the grey-crested helmet-shrike.
The house is named after nomad co-founder, Mkombe Mniko, who started as a guide and had a passion for the Serengeti and a knack with children. That’s why the property is so child-friendly. The kids love climbing the rocks nearby in search of lizards and hyrax.

Every day the meals are planned with the in-house chef, allowing for lots of flexibility and plenty of choice from a menu loaded with fresh produce, home-baking, and delicious flavors.
