Dunia Camp, Serengeti, Tanzania

Setting Dunia apart from other camps is its location, a serene and peaceful spot in the heart of the Serengeti that offers access to the three exceptional game-viewing areas of Seronera, the Moru Kopjes and the southern Serengeti plains.

Hot-air ballooning over the Serengeti accessible from Dunia

At the breathtakingly scenic Moru Kopjes, big cats take advantage of the elevated granite protrusions to scan their territories for prey, and the endangered black rhino is often spotted in the area. Nearby, the languid Seronera River sustains large populations of plains game year round, which ensures superb sightings of the predators that track this food source.

Pitched on an age old migration route, the camp is surrounded by golden grass plains that host the Great Migration. Twice a year, in May/June and November/December, hundreds and thousands of wildebeest and accompanying zebra, topi and gazelle pass virtually through the camp on their great trek through the Serengeti in search of fresh grass. Relax on your veranda and simply watch as the Great Migration comes to you.

Pitched on a major wildebeest migration corridor in the Central Serengeti, Dunia Camp offers easy access to the scenic Moru Kopjes and superb sightings of the big cats, leopard and rhino that roam the forests on the fringes of the Seronera River.

Out of all the Serengeti Lodges and Camp, Dunia Camp is the only one run by a team of only women. Dunia is a tranquil semi-permanent camp with just eight spacious tented suites, each with expansive views of the pristine wilderness and game-filled plains from a large private veranda. Attention to every detail is balanced by a graceful simplicity in harmony with the serene location. Enjoy an exclusive Serengeti safari with superb sightings of resident game and migration viewing twice a year, and round it all off with a sunrise hot-air balloon flight.

  • Exceptional location & resident game in a secluded valley in the heart of the Serengeti
  • Easy access to the key areas of Seronera, South Serengeti & Moru Kopjes
  • On major migration corridor – wildebeest pass camp in May/June & November/December

Within Dunia’s wide valleys around camp you will discover that there is far more to the Serengeti than infinite seas of waving grass. Seronera, South Serengeti and the Moru Kopjes are all easily accessible from here, too.

Game Drives

Wildlife-viewing and birdwatching game drives are offered twice a day from Dunia, allowing you to explore the hidden corners of the central and southern Serengeti with an expert guide. Dunia utilises both open vehicles (with canvas roof and canvas sides that can be rolled down if it rains) and closed vehicles (with closed sides but windows and roof hatches that allow you to stand). Rain ponchos and Maasai shuka blankets are available to keep you comfortable if it is wet or cold. All vehicles have power points where you can recharge your devices, and are fitted with fridges to keep your drinks deliciously frosty.

Hot air balloon safaris

This is a romantic and evocative way to experience the wilderness of East Africa. Nothing can beat the feeling of gliding silently over the game-filled plains on a balloon safari, as the early-morning sun rises over the horizon. (at an additional cost)

Bush Breakfast, Picnics & Dinners

Maximise your time on the game-filled plains by enjoying a delicious packed breakfast or lunch provided by camp chefs while you’re on the move.

The dedicated team at this small camp makes every effort to minimise the environmental impact of hosting an unforgettable safari in the world’s greatest wilderness area. Dunia Camp aspires to leave no traces behind. The tented camp has no permanent structures and can be broken down and moved, to leave this precious site as we found it with the exception of a couple of footpaths – quickly reclaimed by the resilient African bush.

In camp we strive to be carbon neutral but any emissions from our fossil-fuel consumption are offset through a local community forestation programme.

Our team works actively with local rangers and park authorities to share information on animal sightings, especially the rare black rhino, in an effort to prevent poaching.
