Tucked away in a sea of grass, amidst Rocky Islands known as the Moru Kopjes, Asanja Africa is an exotic, Serengeti Luxury Tented Camp that transports one to the bygone era where the Masaai once ruled the wide-open plains of the Serengeti.
We stayed in Asanja for 2 nights (next time I visit serengeti, I’ll make it 4-nights). This a lovely paradise in wilderness. They have 7 tents, each with different themes (mostly for lovers and family). The decor is with good taste and full of details. Bucket shower is intersting. No Wifi, and electicity is resticted, but this is the way to be wild. Their food is THE BEST during our 10-day trip (still curiours about how do they acheive this in such a remote place). Complimentary laundry (washing by hand) is a nice touch. The sunset view is breath taking, and sitting around the camp fire chatting or sipping some beer was such an unforgetable and joyful experience. What I love the most is their staffs, all of whom are nice, gentle, friendly and ready to help. On our check-out, the whole crew (even the chef) came out to see us off. Really don’t want to leave and will definitely miss you all. Thank you all.
We (family of 3 with 10-year old) stayed at Asanja Africa for only three nights but all of us were teary eyed when we left. For an intentionally remote location, the amenities – tents, dining, etc. – are exceptional. The staff was generous, friendly and accommodating. If you are expecting a 5-star hotel, pause and remember that you are in the middle of the Serengeti. Given that you are in the middle of the Serengeti, there is a positively marvelous level of comfort, not the least of which owes to the character and competence of a truly warm and wonderful staff. This staff was not only professional, but went out of their way to be tremendously kind to our daughter. One of them, Barik, even taught her to play bao while still helping other guests. We have continued to play ever since returning home and think fondly of Asanja every time we do….but sadly we do not have the elephants nearby to keep us company. Yes, they were 20-feet away each morning at breakfast.
We stayed at Asanja for 5 days and it was amazing. The place is located in such a beautiful spot in the middle of the bush and our luxury tent was awesome. The staff is attentive, extremely professional and so warm and friendly. We did love learning how to make a real fire like a Masai warrior with John and Barrick and chatting all together in front of the fire, great company and outstanding customer service. The Chef Rashid makes the most amazing food, we were planning to kidnap him and take him to London but the suitcase was too full with souvenirs ! Our game driver Noel was fantastic too so Jeremiah keep up with the good work as Asanja is little piece of heaven !
The only suggestion we have is to provide hot water bottles for the early game drives as it can get a bit chilli but overall we think the place and the people are excellent so if you are thinking to go to Serengeti, stay at Asanja ! you won’t be disappointed. We did LOVE our stay and I’m sure we will be back again!!
My husband I, who share a love for adventure and wildlife couldn’t have picked a better honeymoon destination than the Serengeti and picking Asanja was an even better decision! Though we had a long and tiresome journey from Arusha by road, our fatigue disappeared at the sight of the Asanja camp. We were greeted by wide smiles and hospitality like we’ve never felt before. The camp is quiet and absolutely beautiful! We loved the little details in every part of the camp – right from the chandelier in the restaurant to the Maasai decor in the tent. Our tent, Enkangoo Nkiri was just lovely! We loved the idea of the overhead shower and the hot water bottles tucked under the bed covers. The game drives were nothing short of adventurous and we managed to spot the Big Five and much more fauna endemic to Africa. Arnold, Bareek and John were absolutely wonderful hosts and saying goodbye to Asanja was one of the hardest things we’ve had to do. Thank you Asanja, for giving us memories for a lifetime!
