Though the Serengeti park boundaries officially define the Serengeti, the ecosystem goes way beyond these limits; we call it the Greater Serengeti. It’s a giant picture of wild Tanzania – masses of animals, contrasting landforms, and tribal peoples. We roam around the lot in true Nomad fashion. The camp is semi nomadic, the camp travels within the Serengeti National Park and surrounding area, where densities of animals are mostly higher, and the chance of seeing large predators is much greater.
Serengeti Safari Camp changes location every few weeks, but not during your stay. The camp movements are pre-planned in an effort to be within reach of the wildebeest migration.
December to April:
The camp is on the southern Serengeti Plains with access to the main herds as they calve through February. Birding is excellent during this time, as is general game viewing.
May to Early July:
The camp moves to the Moru Kopjes area, central Serengeti Plains, and to the Western Corridor as the mass of the migration moves west and north. The migration patterns can be unpredictable at this time of year, but the wildebeest rut (May) and the crossing of the Grumeti River (June/July) are spectacular if caught.
Mid-July to November:
The camp moves to the quieter northern Serengeti close to either the Mara or Bologonja Rivers, offering great general game viewing and crossings of either of the two rivers.
Towards late November the camp starts to head south again, arriving on the southern Serengeti Plains around mid-December.
The camp has six tents. Each of the tents are light in their footprint, but with all that anyone might need in their own bush home: spacious tents with deeply comfortable beds, a roomy dressing area, and then an ensuite bathroom with long drop toilet, and traditional safari style bucket showers with hot and cold water on demand.
Only a short stroll away is the candlelit mess/library and dining tent for some evening safari bonhomie. Our safari chefs are absolute wizards at preparing the best meals in the midst of this bush paradise.
Every day, one of Tanzania’s finest safari guides will take you out into the midst of this incredible wilderness. Our guides have travelled the length and breadth of the Serengeti eco-system and they take pride in finding the more remote areas that are off the beaten track, the out of the way special spots that others often miss.
As every couple, or group, have their own private 4WD vehicle and guide, the days are yours to plan, with lunch in camp, or ‘on the hoof’ if you prefer.
