Serengeti under canvas is a luxurious, semi-permanent camp that moves around the Serengeti following the Great Migration. The height of luxury, this mobile camp provides fantastic game viewing whilst still upholding the high standards you expect from an ‘&Beyond’ property.

A simple but sophisticated camp, expect plush furnishings and silver service in a simple, bush setting. The guest areas are made up of comfortable seating areas, dining areas and an outdoor campfire. The property is spilt into two camps that move around various private campsites in the National Park.

Naturally, the main activity at camp is game drives following the movement of migrating herds and the predators they attract such as lions, cheetahs, hyena and leopard. The rangers are flexible allowing you to choose between one long drive a day or two shorter ones with lunch back at camp. Additional activities can be organised and include hot air ballooning and day trips to Lake Victoria, Olduvai Gorge and Shifting Sands.

The accommodation here strikes a nice balance between an authentic camping experience and a luxury stay. 9 small and simple canvas tents host 18 guests, preserving the ‘out in the wild’ feel. However inside, the tents are plush with Persian rugs, chandeliers and large comfortable beds. Each tent also has ensuite facilities and outdoor hot bucket showers as well as your own personal butler to tend to your every need.

Children over six are welcome at Serengeti under canvas and the guides are very good at tailoring game drives. In terms of accommodation, family tents are also available.

Although this camp can come up a little expensive in comparison to similar camps in the area, you are paying for the superior comforts as well as the location. For guests that want an authentic adventure without having to compromise on accommodation standards this is an ideal choice.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
