Serengeti Safari Camp

Nomad Tanzania's Serengeti Safari Camp was the first of it’s 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. So it should come as no surprise that it really hasn't changed much since it's early pioneering days.

The wildebeest move and this is what our Serengeti Safari Camp is all about - understanding the Serengeti seasons and game movements and mirroring them.

Each year, this little camp casts off from Lamai Serengeti and begins its own odyssey. Covering hundreds of miles and moving every couple of months (not during your stay) along a route that the herds have travelled for hundreds of years, Serengeti Safari Camp is where you come for your migration fix.

Since the days in the early 90s when this little camp started, it's been much copied, but never equalled. It is effortlessly comfortable - a home from home, where you want for nothing. But it's never been about luxury for its own sake. From the outset the focus has been clear. To deliver a superlative experience of the extraordinary wildlife in this part of the world without damaging the environment that has so inspired us over the years.

Game drives in search of the migration
It is always recommend that you consider a private car and guide so there are no limits to your game viewing – you can leave camp at dawn with a picnic lunch and return at last light. Or you can take morning and evening drives returning to camp for lunch in between. The whole structure of the day is deliberately designed to cater for each person’s individual interests. And as you won’t be sharing the vehicle with strangers, you’ll be able to indulge your own interests…without having to endure other peoples'.

That said, there is the option to have a great value game package which includes a shared morning and evening game drive each day, still with the same exceptional guides.

 

LOCATION: 
The camp moves seasonally 4 -5 times a year to follow the movements of the migration, but it will not move during your stay. Camp movements are pre-planned in an effort to be within reach of the wildebeest migration, but this cannot always be guaranteed given the unpredictability of nature and weather conditions.

SETTING: 
We take great care over choosing a campsite but each one will be different! Always that little bit further from the crowds, in our own corner of Serengeti wilderness.

ACCOMMODATION:
6 large walk-in safari tents, with dressing room area separating the beds from the new eco-flush loos and safari bucket showers. There is a separate lounge and dining tent and a traditional safari fireplace for sundowners. The family tent has two en suite bedrooms and adjoining sitting area.

SEASONS:
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: 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.

ACTIVITIES: 
Shared twice daily game drives (with an option to upgrade to private car & guide for complete flexibility) in custom built 4WD vehicles. Opportunities to see the great wildebeest and zebra migration, large herds of plains game and the highest concentration of predators in Africa. Nomad guides are experienced and knowledgeable and great company on safari.

CHILD POLICY: 
We are delighted to welcome children over the age of 8 at Serengeti Safari Camp.

GETTING THERE:
Fly by private charter, or scheduled flights to the nearest airstrip (varies according to the seasons)-or drive in 4WD safari vehicles form our other northern camps.

OPEN:
