Loliondo Travel

Loliondo is an area of land owned by the Maasai Community situated to the north east of the Serengeti and it is being used in partnership with a private safari company to offer exclusive safari and trekking holidays.

Loliondo is a private wilderness area about 200km situated to the north east of the Serengeti which forms an intrinsic part of the Serengeti ecosystem.

It is an area of land which is owned by the Maasai Community and it is now being used in partnership with a private safari company to offer exclusive safari and trekking options in this beautiful region.

The community ecotourism partnership helps with the conservation of the area and it brings an income to help the Maasai community.

Liliondo is a mixture of grassy plains, acacia woodland and rocky outcrops or kopjes. These are natural vantage points from which wildlife can be spotted.

Tourists can roam through unspoilt landscape walking or driving from kopje to kopje watching game and spurfowl from the grass and bush.

They can follow valleys and streams catching sight of the animals at the waterholes. The Maasai act as guides and are an indispensible part of the trek or safari. 

The new Loliondo Safari Camp is designed to celebrate cultures around the world. The six tents are shaped like Mongolion yurts and the camp moves between north and south Loliondo to ensure superb game opportunities.

It is situated in Southern Loliondo (Pijaya) for six months and then for six months in northern Loliondo (Olosokwan). The camp borders Kenya's Maasai Mara to the north and the Serengeti National Park to the West.

Besides the six large yurts there is a dining yurt and a separate lounge/library yurt. Each guest room has its own en-suite bathroom.

Tourists can visit Loliono at any time but the best times for seeing wildlife, due to migration, are October to December and June/July. The area has a good selection of resident game all the year round.
