Serengeti Savannah Camps offer a remarkable blend of safe and enjoyable “bush” experiences with the simple comforts of a private safari camp, all at an affordable price. Just like lion prides seamlessly merge into the bush, our camps harmoniously blend into their surroundings, ensuring an authentic and immersive wildlife encounter. Whether you seek a tranquil retreat or an adventurous wildlife thrill, Serengeti Savannah Camps provide the perfect combination of relaxation and excitement.
The Serengeti Savannah Camps move with the wildebeest migration. From Central Serengeti to Southern Serengeti’s Ndutu Area and eventually the Northern Serengeti’s Kogatende Area where the wildebeest cross over to Masai Mara in Kenya via the Mara River.
We offer three unique locations for our camps:
- Ndutu, Serengeti Savannah: Situated within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and on the doorstep of the Serengeti National Park, Lake Ndutu, and Lake Masek, this camp is strategically positioned in the heart of the Ndutu migration area.
- Mara River, Serengeti Savannah: Located near the Kogatende wildebeest migration area, our Mara River Camp sits just moments away from the crocodile-infested Mara River, which traverses Kenya and Tanzania. It serves as a crucial intersection point for the migration of wildebeest and other animals in the Serengeti-Masai region.
- Seronera, Serengeti Savannah: The Seronera Camp is nestled in the vast and endless Serengeti plains, easily accessible via the Seronera airstrip. This camp is situated in a small settlement within the Serengeti National Park and serves as another significant host location for the Wildebeest migration.
Our camps feature custom-made walk-in tents crafted from heavy-duty canvas, providing spacious and comfortable “rooms” with en-suite bathrooms. Tastefully appointed with twin or double beds, crisp linen, warm blankets or duvets, bedside tables, wardrobes, and luggage racks, our tents offer a true “home away from home” experience. Solar power supplies the lighting, while the fully plumbed washbasin, lavatory, and showers in your private bathroom redefine the concept of camping. Enjoy hot water throughout the day and evening, and your dedicated Butler will take care of your every need, including laundry services and morning tea. You can even indulge in a refreshing wash, shower, or shave on the veranda of your tent. The spacious veranda, furnished with comfortable safari chairs and tables, invites you to relax and savor the sights and sounds of the African bush, from weaver birds building nests to impalas grazing nearby.
