The locations of these migratory camps are carefully plotted to coincide with the documented movements of the annual Great Migration as it traverses the Serengeti plains.Having secured some of the Serengeti's best semi-permanent campsites, we are able to bring our guests as close as possible to the migration or resident game.
The massive herds move relatively slowly enabling us to plan ahead and set up our luxurious camps in the best possible locations. The aim is to position the camps within comfortable driving distance of the migration during exciting daily safaris (early in the morning and again during the afternoon and early evening), or often for the full day. However, with nature being as unpredictable as it is, close proximity to the mass herds cannot always be guaranteed. When the migration crosses over into Kenya, we keep our camps in the remote and beautiful corners of the Serengeti, which are renowned for their excellent resident game.
Our luxury semi permanent tented camps proudly feature some of Tanzania's largest and most spacious mobile tents, each with double bed, ensuite bathroom, separate w.c., and romantic al fresco bucket shower (hot water delivered upon request). With a hint of Bedouin character, these tents boast custom made Indian rugs, crisp linens, sparkling crystal, and polished brass samovars and basins.
Each camp has its own guides, as well as two fully-equipped safari vehicles complete with onboard safe and charge points for digital cameras and equipment. This is the soul of Africa - no mains electricity and no running water. The simplicity of luxury camping and the relaxing solitude of the mighty Serengeti offers our guests a safari of the soul.
