Family Tanzania Adventure—Custom Safari

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Ubuntu Migration Camp
Location
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania 

Ubuntu Camp is a deluxe mobile tented camp that travels with the natural flow of the wildebeest migration through the Serengeti ecosystem. Starting in December through the end of March, the camp is situated in the southern Serengeti's Ndutu region to witness the wildebeest gathering to drop their young. From May to mid-July the camp is placed in the western corridor to meet the migration on its turn north. From late July through mid-November the camp is positioned to intercept the migration in the northern Serengeti. The camp’s mobility allows us to follow the herds year-round, optimizing our chances to witness the migration and ensuring outstanding wildlife viewing at all times.

The camp is comprised of eight canvas tents with two lounge/dining areas. Each tent is either a twin or double (triples are also available) with toilets and safari-style bucket showers in en suite bathrooms. The open communal area surveys the plains, so you can enjoy wildlife viewing over a drink as you relax in the lounge or bar. The dining room, also set beneath canvas, offers a classic bush dining experience. And after dark, classic lanterns provide an atmospheric glow throughout the camp.

Guests will enjoy the ambience of this intimate, traditional canvas safari camp that's designed to provide a wild and authentic Serengeti experience as much as it does luxury and comfort. The close-knit Tanzanian camp staff ensures that personalized hospitality, excellent food, and a warm, relaxed environment define the essence of our Ubuntu Camp. And, since the staff follows the migration with our camp year-round, they are a font of detailed information about the wildlife and the overall experience.
Kimondo Migration Camp
Location
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Kimondo is a small mobile tented camp that tracks the seasonal migration of wildebeest from the Lamai Wedge and Mara River in winter to the southern Serengeti grasslands in the height of summer. Constructed of wood and canvas in an exotic blend of vintage East African safari style with subtle Moroccan overtones, Kimondo has eight elegant and airy canvas tents, each with a king-size cast-iron bed, leather folding chairs, wooden writing desk, and en suite bathroom with flush toilet and safari-style shower and private veranda. The central area features a spacious lounge with wooden daybeds, plush cushions and a common dining tent. Before or after dinner, guests can reminisce about the day’s sightings over drinks around the campfire.

From July through October, the camp is based in the Lamai Wedge in the northern Serengeti bordering the Mara River, ideally situated for viewing the herds of wildebeest and zebra that cross the river here. Guests may also visit the local Kuria village to buy handicrafts and learn about the local culture. From December through March, Kimondo Camp relocates to the Kusini region on the short-grass plains of the southern Serengeti. Here, the wildebeest congregate to drop their offspring, which attracts an array of predators including large felines and hyenas and that prey on the young and vulnerable members of the herds. Twice-daily game drives are offered, while full-day excursions with picnic lunches in the bush are also an option.
Olakira Migration Camp
Location
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Olakira Camp is a mobile base for viewing the Great Migration throughout the seasons. The luxury tented camp is optimally positioned in the Ndutu region of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area from December through late March as the herds gather to drop their young. Morning and afternoon game drives reveal an abundance of wildebeest and accompanying zebra, but also gazelle, predators, birds and a host of other species that inhabit the plains. The camp is closed during the rainy season of April and May, then moves to the northern Serengeti Mara River where the herds attempt to cross the crocodile-infested Mara River to reach new grass in the northern Serengeti and Maasai Mara. 

Olakira Camp embodies the romance of a classic African safari. Its nine, airy Meru-style tents are spaced with privacy in mind. Furnished in earth tones accented with orange and gold, each has a king-size or twin beds, cozy rugs, campaign chairs, writing desk and a daybed for relaxing in between safari drives. En suite bathrooms have a safari-style shower, wash basin and flush toilet. The central guest area consists of a lounge tent with comfortable sofas, floor cushions, and a small library of books and African games. The open-air dining tent serves family-style dinners under canvas by lantern light, with private tables available upon request. Bush picnics are a daytime option, enhancing the spirit of adventure.
