ITINERARY / DETAILS
SERENGETI SAFARI CAMP
Our Serengeti Safari Camp was the first of its kind. It was designed with a purpose in mind; to be in the best possible location to view the wildebeest migration as it covers hundreds of miles of the Serengeti National Park each year.
Each year, the camp casts off from Lamai Serengeti and begins its own odyssey.
Covering hundreds of miles and moving every couple of months along a route that the herds have travelled for hundreds of years, Serengeti Safari Camp is where you come for your migration fix. We understand well the Serengeti seasons and game movements, and how best to mirror them in this little nomadic camp.
Serengeti Safari Camp has just six large walk-in meru tents, with a dressing area and an en-suite bathroom at the rear. New eco-flush toilets and safari-style bucket showers are part of every tent, as well as jugs of hot and cold water delivered as and when you'd like them. The main dining tent sits in the middle of the line oftents, with the fireplace right in front and a separate library/bar tent nearby.
THE SERENGETI AND THE MIGRATION
The Serengeti is one of the most famous wildlife areas in the world and home to the annual wildebeest migration. The Serengeti National Park itself covers 14,750 km2 of grassland plains, open savannah, riverine forests and woodlands. It lies in the north of Tanzania, bordered by Kenya and the Masai Mara National Reserve in the north, the Ngorongoro Crater Area to the southeast, the Maswa Game Reserve to the south west and the Loliondo Game Controlled Area area to the east.
Together, all these areas form the larger Serengeti ecosystem which almost all see the wildebeest herds at some point during their annual circuit.
More than 20 years of studying the migration and shadowing its movements through the Serengeti ecosystem have taught us that it rarely conforms to those nice little maps you so often see. Our objective is always to have Serengeti Safari Camp in the best available position for the migration, but it may not always be where it's "supposed" to be.
December to April: Serengeti Safari Camp is on the southern Serengeti Plains in the Ndutu area of the Ngorongoro Conservation area, 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: Moru Kopjes area, central Serengeti Plains, and Western Corridor. 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: northern Serengeti close to either the Mara or Sand Rivers, offering great game viewing and crossings of either of the rivers. Late November: the camp heads south again, arriving on the southern Serengeti Plains around mid-December.
