luxurious and elevated en-suite tents are incredibly spacious and tastefully decorated in rich dark wood and leather furnishings. Serengeti Migration Camp tents have the feel of a stately hotel room, but with canvas walls to let the sounds of the African bush remind you of your truly wild location. Large wrap-around verandas afford 360-degree views of the surrounding African bush.
Day-long game drives are a must in the Serengeti. Set-off early with a champagne picnic breakfast and stay out all day with a delectable picnic lunch. You will be delighted and awed by the sheer numbers of game including the Big Five. Back in camp the views are spectacular, and the sunsets and cocktails on the sunset deck are an experience not to be missed. On a separate deck overlooking the Ndasiata Hills and the Grumeti River, you can dine under canvas or al-fresco under the brilliant African skies.
Along the Grumeti River, are numerous pools with resident hippo. You can take a walk along the banks of the Grumeti River with a knowledgeable guide, enjoying close-to nature encounters spotting hippos, birds, crocodiles and terrapins. Another experience of a lifetime to consider is the timeless and inimitable Serengeti balloon safari.
Situated on the path of the Great Migration, during the months of April through June and again in late October to December, you are treated to the spectacular view of a landscape dotted with wildebeest from horizon to horizon. Over two million animals participate in the Great Migration, with some 500,000 zebra moving ahead of and 200,000 Thomson’s gazelle coming behind the main players – one and a half million wildebeest. The herds tend to congregate and calve in the southern part of Serengeti from January to March, before beginning the northern trek into the northern Serengeti plains and the Masai Mara in Kenya before looping back again - this leg of the epic journey occurring between April and December. A dramatic volcanic and verdant landscape, the Serengeti is a permanent home to a plethora of other wildlife which can be viewed year round. One of the few remaining places to view black rhino in its natural habitat, the Serengeti offers the chance to view all of the Big Five. Its abundance of animals has seen the Serengeti as the subject of and location for many wildlife documentaries over the years.
Serengeti Migration Camp is in an ideal location to enjoy the Serengeti’s wildlife, while also having easy access to the Mara River during the northern migration season.
