Mkombe's House

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Gold price level

Many of our best memories are all about the excitement of going on safari as children, and later on, of rediscovering those feelings when we take our own youngsters into Africa’s wild places. This self-contained private house for ten, totally designed around families, is charm itself, and set plum in the middle of one of Serengeti’s richest mammal habitats. Solitary under huge skies and amidst the great grassland plains, it grants complete freedom from other people and schedules. It’s also excitement-central: a lively base for expertly guided forays into the bush: scouting buffalo, elephants, lion, crocodiles, and the famous wildebeest river crossings. Nomad founder, Mkombe Mniko, was a guide who cherished this area and connected strongly with children and their parents.

Beautifully styled, the house has a fresh, contemporary feel. What we particularly love about it is that while it looks great, it is still somewhere you can completely relax in. The house is fully self-contained with four en suite bedrooms that have been designed with families in mind. The house can sleep a total of 4 adults and 6 children comfortably, and there is no minimum age. There are additional cots, high chairs and car-seats provided for the little ones. Each day, 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. The house has a private dining room and lounge in addition to outside chill-out areas, a plunge pool and larger swimming pool and magnificent views across the Northern Serengeti.
