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.

  • Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

  • Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
    We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
    Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol
