Serengeti Safari Camp, Serengeti, Tanzania

The 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.

For a few months of the year the migration is on the doorstep of Lamai Serengeti. But of course the wildebeest move and this is what the 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 along a route that the herds have travelled for hundreds of years, Serengeti Safari Camp is where you come for your migration fix

This 12-bed camp has large walk-in East African style Meru tents, with a dressing area separating the beds from the bathroom area. There is a family tent which has two bedrooms and an adjoining sitting area. All of the tents have new eco-flush toilets and safari-style bucket showers. Hot and cold water on demand. There is a separate lounge/library and a dining tent.

Great Migration Viewing

December to March:

The Calving - The Southern Plains of the Serengeti are where it all begins. Here is where the wildebeest would like to call home and it's where, each year in late February or March, life begins for half a million wildebeest.

April and May:

The Rut - As the southern plains dry out and the rut begins, so the herds begin to move. April and May find them flooding through Moru Kopjes in the South Central Serengeti as they begin the journey north.

June and July:

Crossing the Grumeti River - As the migration gathers momentum, the herds enter the Serengeti Western Corridor. It's here that the wildebeest and their newborn calves meet their first serious barrier in the form of the Grumeti River and its vast crocodiles.

August to November:

Crossing the Mara River - Between August and November, the migration reaches its northern range: the grasslands on either bank of the crocodile-infested Mara River which the herds must cross not once, but twice, as they complete their migration.
