Serengeti Safari Camp

To put it in a nutshell, Serengeti Safari Camp is all about shadowing the wildebeest migration. And as the animals move, the camp is positioned before you arrive to maximize the experience. In addition, you have your own private guide and vehicle. The tented camp reminds one of the traditional tents of colonial yesteryear.

The six spacious en-suite tents include all you will need, but in keeping with traditional bush camps you will find bucket showers and chemical toilets. The professional staff exist to ensure your comfort and enjoyment. Combined with the great food, all guests confirm that Serengeti Safari Camp far exceeds even their best prior camping experiences.

A private 4x4 and guide add enormously to the overall safari experience, and the guides can tailor each game search to your wildlife desires.

Activities will proceed at the pace with which you are comfortable. The all-day game drives leave at first light (a packed lunch is part of the charm) and return at dusk. However, you have the option of returning to camp at lunchtime, taking a snooze, and heading out again in the evening.

From December to April, Serengeti Safari Camp is on the southern Serengeti Plains, which are good for general game viewing and birding. From May to early July, the camp migrates to the central plains and western corridor, as innumerable wildebeest and other game herds move north and west. Highlights are the wildebeest rut as well as their iconic crossing of the Gumeti River. From mid July to early November, you will set up camp in the northern Serengeti, near the Mara and Bologonja Rivers. General game viewing as well as additional river-crossings are spectacular to witness. By late November, the camp is again headed south.
