Ehlane Plains Camp offers the newest safari camp experience on the Serengeti's eastern edge. “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. Tucked into a bend in the Ngare Nanyuki underground river, the camp offers an outstanding vantage on the annual wildebeest migration, including some of Africa’s best big cat viewing. In and around the open, unfenced camp, wildlife comes and goes at will.
Just eight canvas tents have a clear vista on the wildernes beyond. Airy suites include an en suite bathroom with shower, hand basins and flush toilet, plus a private lounge with comfortable couches, a dressing area, a net-draped king-size bed, writing desk, full-length wall mirror and soft carpets underfoot. Wi-Fi is available in the central lounge area, and solar panels provide electricity for lighting and camp operations. You may prefer the darkness, however, as you revel in the starry African night skies, fall asleep beneath a natural planetarium after spending exhilarating days among the Serengeti's great herds and apex predators.
