Kirurumu Serengeti Camp 

This small, reasonably-priced yet good quality mobile camp moves between two Serengeti locations – central and southern. A twin camp is in northern Serengeti from June to October. If you’re keen to see the wildebeest migration we can guide you to the best camp for the season you’re there.

This authentic, small mobile camp offers guests a comfortable base from which to explore the wildlife of the Serengeti. There are two twin camps – one settles in the Ndutu region of the southern Serengeti’s short grass plains from late December to March, then moves to the Moru Kopjes area of central Serengeti for June to early December; the second camp opens in the Kogatende area of northern Serengeti from June to October.

Whilst we can never guarantee that you’ll see the migration, these three different locations give us the chance to get you as close as possible to the migration at different times of the year.

Whilst not the most luxurious camps, they are really comfortable, have all you need (unless you need wifi, a swimming pool, aircon …  they’re just not that kind of camp), and the attentive service and friendly atmosphere allows for complete relaxation and reflection after a busy day’s gameviewing. We also love the fact that the camps are ethically responsible and environmentally sustainable. We know the owners, and know they care not only about their guests, but also their staff, and the environment and wildlife too.

We have had many happy guests at these sister camps, and we continue to recommend them without hesitation.

Times to Go

This mobile camp moves across the Serengeti seasonally to optimise game viewing. The Ndutu region (southern Serengeti) plays host to the migration from about December to March, and the calving season for the wildebeest and other plains game is around mid-February to early March. Predators love this time of year!

The herds then move north and west, so the camp moves to its central Serengeti position at this time. Whilst the main bulk of the herd continue further north by about July, central Serengeti always has good resident wildlife.

Up in the very north of the park, bordering the Masai Mara, the northern camp is open June to October. Whilst it’s dependant on the rains, the migration tends to reach the north by about mid-July and stay here (and move into the Mara too) until around the end of October. It is up here in the north that you might get the chance to see migration river crossings.

Kirurumu Serengeti Camp

The 7 traditional canvas guest tents have large gauze windows and either double or twin beds draped with white mosquito netting. Hurricane lamps are on the bedside table.

A wonderful old wooden chest acts as a safety box and table in one, and there is a luggage rack at the foot of the bed.

There is clothes hanging storage, a table and chairs, and at the rear of the tent is an en-suite bathroom with a safari bucket shower and chemical loo.

There is also a shaded deck at the front of the tent with ample space for a table and a pair of chairs.

Twiga the giraffe likes this because…

“The mobile camp’s small carbon footprint is furthered by using eco-charcoal briquettes made from coconut husks and sustainable Cyprus wood on the campfires. The Tanzania-owned company also actively supports the TATO conservation and anti-poaching committee and backs various community projects in northern Tanzania.”

And don’t forget… for every booking we get, Tanzania Specialists plants trees in deforested areas of Africa through The Travel Forest, and we back The Tribes Foundation’s conservation and social projects.
