- Mobile Safari Camp
- Follows Wildebeest Migration
- 9 Safari Tents
- High Specification
Kimondo is a high end intimate mobile safari camp that tracks the seasonal Great Wildebeest Migration from the Lamai Wedge and Mara River in winter to the southern Serengeti grasslands in the height of summer.
Kimondo Migration Camp has nine elegant and airy tents. Each tented suite is furnished with cast-iron king-sized beds (twins available) that rest under the canvas ceilings. The private en-suite bathroom features safari bucket shower, hot and cold running water and flushing toilet. Private verandas are furnished with a comfortable chaise longue – the perfect place for a siesta during the long, lazy afternoons.
Activities are based around morning and afternoon game drives, in the north (July to November), Kimondo is within driving distance of several communities and villages. It is possible to visit a traditional homestead and be entertained by the local Kuria dancers, or spend the morning at the market, shopping for crafts and handmade souvenirs.
From July to October, home for Kimondo is in the northern Serengeti on the famous Lamai Wedge, a golden triangle of grassland between the Mara River and the Kenyan border – this is an area that is regularly hailed as one of the highlights of the entire Serengeti ecosystem. A gathering point for the Great Migration in winter, the area is rich in wildebeest and antelope … and the predators that pursue them. The Mara River, famed for dramatic scenes as the herds attempt the treacherous crossing past the jaws of Nile crocodiles, is only a short drive from camp, making Kimondo North the ideal place from which to experience the drama of the migration and the stillness of the Serengeti.
From December to March Kimondo is located in the Southern Serengeti. As winter eases into summer, the herds lift their noses and move to the luscious grasslands in the south. Kimondo is never far behind: in November the tents are packed and folded; come December, the camp is pitched anew in a spectacular location in the southern Serengeti. It is on these grassy plains that the millions of wildebeest who have wandered for hundreds of kilometres have a chance to graze, rest and calve. Enjoy superb sightings of the herds during daily game drives, or simply watch from camp and let the migration come to you.
Families with children aged five and older are warmly welcomed in Kimondo Camp.
We had a wonderful time! Our transfers (besides a bit of a wait when we arrived) were smooth. The gentleman that drove us to and from the airport also drove us to our hike and he was very nice and helpful, clean car and very accommodating.
Our tour guide on the first day, Mandy, was charming and insightful. It was a slow day in the markets but we appreciated the space and gave us a chance to hear all about the Souks. The gentlemen who was with her was a wealth of knowledge and both did a very nice job!
Our hike was awesome and our guide was great- he even took us to a cool waterfall and took great care of us; lunch in the mountains was delicious!
The hotel was so lovely and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was great and the rooms very comfortable!
I did a good amount of damage in the market (often accused of being Berber;) and truly hope to be back next Spring... maybe a girls trip or perhaps I’ll bring my kiddos!
Thank you for organizing such a nice getaway for my husband and I; we will confidently recommend Tourdust to our friends!!

We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.
Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.
Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.
Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!
One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.
Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

Thanks for all your help in making the arrangements, everything went so smoothly from landing in Jo’burg to departing a week later.
We all had a fantastic time, Kirsty (our youngest) was able to go on all the game drives and we were very well looked after both on the drives and back at the lodge. The food was great, staff were all very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them (e.g. providing hot milk for Kirsty at bedtime). The kids all enjoyed the rock pool during the day and we all loved the game drives.
We were lucky enough to see all the big 5, with the additions of Cheetah & Wild Dogs. I think it was the second to last day before we managed to see some Hippo (and finally I’ve been able to take some photos of them - I have only ever seen them at night before). We had the adventure of being caught up with some Lionesses stalking a herd of Zebra (one of the younger Lionesses went a bit early & scattered the herd).
We’re certainly aiming to go on safari again although it will be a while before we save enough to go again (maybe the kids will be taking us next time!)
