Kikoti means “meeting place” in the Maasai language. Kikoti is a meeting place of people, cultures and wildlife. A lone bush elephant stately lumbers through the camp, watched by buffalo, drinking at the water hole, passing through on the migration route. A Maasai warrior, armed with bow and arrows, escorts you to your room in the evening, looking out across the Simanjiro plains as the African sun sets over the horizon, the air alive with noise and life.
Situated in the heart of the Maasai plains, just 6km from Tarangire National Park, Kikoti is a place where visitors come as guests and leave as friends. A place where your safari dreams can come true.
Six kilometres from Tarangire National Park and three hours drive from Arusha, Kikoti is also reachable by charter plane, arriving at Kuru, with a shorter drive to the camp. Being located outside the camp offers certain advantages; the chance to enjoy nature walks led by Maasai rangers or night game drive.
Kikoti lies on the migration route for the plains game and offers a diverse array of wildlife to see from the safety of the camp during the beginning of the dry season in July and towards the end in November.
