Serengeti Safari Camp
Embodying all that is great in East Africa bush camping, Serengeti Safari Camp is a gem of a lodge. Six beautifully equipped safari tents provide accommodation for just 12 guests creating an intimate and relaxed atmosphere. Candlelit bush dinners, good standards of service and some of the best guides in Africa all go to complete the safari experience. The lodge switches its location throughout the year putting it in the very best position for the migration. For this reason the camp is one of the best options for those hoping to view some of the most spectacular events of the migration such as river crossings.
The camp itself is actually quite simple but the quality of food and service is first class. There are two communal tents, one is a comfortable lounge and the second is the dining tent where delicious and well-presented dinners are taken. Breakfast and lunch are usually taken out in the field. There are six private and spacious guest tents, each with a table and chairs and large double bed. Behind the beds is a changing area, sink, towel rack and bucket shower with hot water available on request. Storm lanterns powered by solar power provide lighting and there is a torch and alarm for emergency attention.
The locations of the camp around the park have to be agreed well in advance with the park authorities – thus the unpredictable route of the migration means that sometimes a drive is necessary to reach the best spots for wildlife observation.

Serengeti Safari Camp aims to position itself in the best locations to witness the wildebeest migration during its peak times. The plains of the Serengeti also support an exceptional diversity of other large game throughout the year with elephant, hippo, black rhino, giraffe, buffalo, eland, Thompson’s and grant’s gazelles, Burchell’s zebra, lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena and many more frequently seen.
Game drives directly from the camp.
This is authentic wilderness camping at its very best. Expect bush dinners, bucket showers and wildlife wandering through camp at any time. If you want something a little more solid, please ask: many of these areas are now served by permanent lodges with more in the way of creature comforts.

Big thanks to Jonathan Morris for preparing an excellent trip – one of our favourite holidays to date. The guide at Sand River couldn’t do enough to ensure we saw and did everything of interest. The guides were very happy to do walking safaris, and we fit in a walk every day, as well as some boating and fishing trips.
