Serengeti Safari Camp

This little camp literally follows the herds, putting down its low environmental-impact roots for a couple of months each time in a location of peak migration activity. Stay in really comfortable, well-appointed classic safari tents, enjoy excellent, friendly service and great food and go on game drives with hugely knowledgeable guides.

The best way to ensure you see the most spectacular great migration activity is to follow the migration, and this lovely little camp does just that. One of the first-ever camps purpose-designed to follow the herds, and run by wildlife experts, it relocates every two months (not when there are guests), moving hundreds of miles each year so it’s always in the heart of the action.

And what action! From December to March it’s on Serengeti’s southern plains as millions of wildebeest gather to calve. In April and May the camp sets up in south central Serengeti, as the rut begins and the herds start their journey north. June and July see the camp in the western corridor, as the vast herds attempt the river crossings and battle the crocodiles that await them there. And from August to November the camp is in its most northerly position, as the herds twice have to cross the Mara River, which teems with crocodiles.

You’ll sleep in roomy, classic East African-style safari tents with comfortable metal beds with crisp white bedlinen, and dine under the stars or by candlelight at a long table in a mess tent. And you’ll spend time with a fantastic, enthusiastic and friendly team who can’t do enough for you. You’ll leave having had a wonderful experience, and with photographs and fireside tales and new-found wildlife knowledge to treasure.

Times to Go

Whenever suits you, depending on which aspect of the Great Migration you want to see. April and May sees the long rains fall, so these are the quietest months (and the roads are tricky) but the wildlife is still here and there are fewer people. If you’re unsure when to go and where, just chat with us.

The 6 spacious, open-plan walk-in meru tents have dressing rooms and good-sized en-suite bathrooms with eco-flush toilets and safari-style bucket showers, and a wash-basin with cold running water.

Hot water is delivered as and when required.

The tents are simply but elegantly and comfortably decorated in safari style, with metal beds, wooden writing desks and leather chairs.

The main dining tent is positioned in the middle of the line of tents, with a separate library/bar tent nearby.

Twiga the giraffe likes this because…

“Serengeti Safari Camp’s ethos is based on the founders’ love of the wilderness and in having minimal environmental impact. The owners run a trust which actively invests in local communities and conservation, and supports programmes to improve education and health care resources in the remote villages.”

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.
