Our Story

Who We Are

Mbugani Camps was created and is owned and operated by Barnabas Petro Raphael, native of the Maasai Village of Longido in Tanzania. Barnabas built his career as a guide for thousands of safari-goers from the U.S., Europe, Australia, and more. Offering a camp that caters to your individual tastes while showcasing the delights of his native country is a dream come true for him and his family, and for his guests, too. Barnabas' guests enjoy his hospitality, humor, and deep knowledge of all things Tanzania.

Our Mission: We provide outstanding, personalized accommodations and dining in the beautiful setting of Central Serengeti that allow guests to enjoy an authentic safari experience without worry about the details.

Both experienced safari travelers and first-time visitors enjoy their stay at Mbugani Camps. Most of our visitors come back again and refer us to friends and family. Visit our TripAdvisor and Facebook pages to meet our wonderful guests.
