Serengeti Savannah Camp

Serengeti Savannah Camp

Living up to its credo of a camp with “everything you need and nothing you don’t,” Serengeti Savannah Camp encapsulates a return to simple comforts in the midst of northern Tanzania’s immense natural beauty. Blending seamlessly into its surroundings, Serengeti Savannah Camp is a traditional tented camp within Serengeti National Park, one of the world’s last great animal reserves that is best known for its annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, and gazelle.

Spacious custom-made tents are luxuriously simple. Heavy-duty canvas surrounds a private room, complete with twin or double beds, crisp linen, warm blankets, bedside tables, wardrobe, luggage rack, solar-powered lighting, and more. An en-suite bath includes dressing table, fully plumbed washbasin, lavatory, and showers with hot water available any time of day. Wake up to morning tea served by your personal butler and sip it on your spacious veranda surrounded by the African bush.

The highlight of any visit to Serengeti Savannah Camp is the daily game drive . . . and no two days are the same. As host to the largest mammal migration in the world, the Serengeti’s diverse ecosystems are today home to more than just great herds of blue wildebeest. Innumerable gazelle, zebra, and buffalo also graze the grasslands along with notable numbers of elephant and giraffe. Not far behind the migrating herds are the Serengeti’s predators, most notably lion but also leopard, cheetah, jackal, hyena, aardwolf, and serval cat.

At the height of the seasonal migrations, over one million wildebeest are on the move, joined by hundreds of thousands of zebra, buffalo, and gazelle, A remarkably synchronized calving season occurs annually between January and March, and once it begins, the wildebeest give birth to over 500,000 calves within the span of three weeks! The exact timing of the annual migration is somewhat unpredictable. Generally, around October to December the herds descend from the northern hills to the southern plains following the rains. Sometime from April to June they begin their return trek northward, crossing the crocodile-infested Mara River between July and September.

Venture out and explore exciting corners of the Serengeti on some of Serengeti Savannah Camp’s specialized activities such as private safari with professional guides and vehicles, traditional cultural interactions with the Maasai, photographic safari, birding safari, and memorable night game drive safari.
