Ehlane Plains Camp offers the newest safari camp experience on the Serengeti's eastern edge. Located in an area that was previously off-limits to visitors for more than 20 years to further feline conservation efforts, Ehlane Plains Camp provides exceptional access to some of the Serengeti's most thrilling wildlife encounters. Ehlane is a Zulu word meaning "wilderness," which is what you’ll experience in this exceptionally isolated location in the Soit le Motonyi region, far from the main Serengeti transit areas. Yet you'll also experience genuine elegance at this refined outpost in the African wilds. Located near the Ngare Nanyuki underground river, the camp offers outstanding proximity to the Serengeti's annual wildebeest migration. And it has some of Africa’s best big cat viewing, with the immediate region especially famed for its sightings of abundant cheetah. In and around the open camp, other wildlife comes and goes at will.
Eight enormous tented suites have a clear vista on the wilderness beyond. Airy suites are furnished in retro-modern decor in a neutral palette accented with yellow and chartreuse. Each features a private lounge with comfortable couch and chairs, writing desk, dressing area, net-draped king-size bed outfitted with crisp cotton linens, full-length wall mirror and en suite bathroom with shower, wash basins and flush toilet. Wi-Fi is available in the central lounge area, and solar panels provide electricity for lighting and camp operations. Or let darkness reign as you fall asleep under a natural planetarium of some of the world's starriest skies.
