The Mantis Group has announced the acquisition of Siringit Serengeti Camp into its prestigious family, becoming the Group’s first experience in the Serengeti. Mantis took over the reins on 15 April 2019.
This permanent tented camp allows Mantis guests the opportunity to link the Northern Circuit safari with an exclusive experience at their sought-after Nungwi Dreams by Mantis in Zanzibar.
The Siringit Serengeti Camp is nestled in the heart of the Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania. Guests are accommodated in eight 45-square-metre canvas tents and a 2-bedroom family tent for up to 6 people. Siringit Camp guests are accommodated in 5-star canvas tents on polished hardwood floors raised 30cm above the ground.
Step up onto a generous private veranda leading into a plush suite overlooking the surrounding plains and wildlife. The tent interiors are made up of modernised African textures, and plush fabrics in fresh shades of whites, greys and neutrals. Indigenous greenery and woven baskets are used functionally throughout the space. The en-suite bathroom has a flushing toilet, hardwood walls, and double porcelain vanities with nostalgic brass taps. Each bathroom has a shower with a window.
Siringit is the Masai word for “endless plains” or “the place where the land runs forever”. Guests will be rewarded with endless views over the plains. The camp is just 6km from the Seronera Airstrip and right on a major migration wildlife corridor. Guests can enjoy direct views of the migration from the comfort of the camp in May, June, and August. During the other months of the year, the action is never more than a 2.5-hours game drive away.
Siringit Camp will still offer shared, and private-use game drives in the Serengeti where some favourite sightings have been lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant and black rhino. A visit to the famous hippo pool and balloon safaris are just some of the experiences we recommend to our guests. Exciting activities for the kids include bow and arrow shooting with the Masai warriors, learning how to make a fire the Masai way by rubbing two sticks together, roasting marshmallows on the campfire, or spear throwing lessons with mom and dad.
Mantis boasts a leading collection of hotels and eco-escapes across the world and offers authentic African experiences in the South, East, and West of the continent. Every Mantis property is a celebration of rarity and strives to preserve its natural environment. Siringit Serengeti Camp is no exception, just an exceptional place to find yourself.
Mantis is a diverse collection of extraordinary destinations spanning every continent on Earth. Rooted in conservation, Mantis pursues sustainable business practices and develops tourism products that are respectful of the environment and communities in which they operate.
Whether small and intimate or vast and complex, on a sweeping African plain, bustling city, private tropical island or frozen snowscape, each is an exceptional place for guests to find themselves. While uniquely different in the experiences they offer, all are linked through a collective obsession to be extraordinary, to be rare in a world that mass-produces sameness.
Mantis constantly curates, collects and discovers destinations and experiences that stir the soul, defy expectation and live in the heart forever. We will do anything in our power to advance the cause of sustainability and to promote further appreciation of the land, its creatures and our communities. We believe that true rarity needs to be looked after and protected for future generations and are wholly committed to Legacy Creation.
