This is the way to see the Serengeti. Our clients continually rave about the camps, guides and experience! While not an inexpensive option, these are extremely well run camps in exceptionally wild areas of the Serengeti. Camps are moved depending on where the wildebeest migration is during that time of the year.
These tented camps can be a bit rustic for some travelers - with eco-friendly flushing toilets and hot bush bucket showers.
A million and a half wildebeest and zebra can’t be wrong, and Serengeti Safari Camp never settles for less. This canvas home-from-home and its indomitable crew are on the move year-in, year-out from one sweet Serengeti site to another, guided by the mass movements of the wildebeest migration and their quest for ever greener grass. Along with it come our highly trained naturalist guides and all the trimmings of a classic safari.
You will enjoy luxury mobile camping in the heart of the park's beautiful wilderness. The tents are welcoming, light and simple, and fully equipped to ensure comfort. The bathrooms are en-suite, with traditional safari style bucket showers, short drop toilets, and hot and cold water on demand. Despite being remote, the camp is comfortable with fabulous cuisine and service.
The famous migration is a dynamic process of herd animals following the rains and the grasses in a clockwise direction, crossing from the Maasai Mara into the Serengeti. The Southern Plains of the Serengeti are home to huge wildebeest and zebra herds during the months of December-April. Amazingly, about 80 percent of the females give birth within the same 4 to 5 week period, creating a glut for predators and thus enabling more calves to survive the crucial first few weeks. This is a time of plenty for the predators, the lions, cheetah, leopards and hyena, so they are especially active.
