Serengeti Migration Camp is a permanent lodge situated among rocky outcrops near the banks of the Grumeti River in the Northern Corridor of the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. With its location right on the path of the Great Migration, it offers first class game viewing and tasteful luxury in the midst of the vast Serengeti wilderness.

The camp’s main areas have fabulous 360-degree views of the surrounding Ndasiata Hills. There is an open-plan, split-level lounge, a dining room with a large balcony, and a sunset viewing platform complete with camp fire. There is also a large swimming pool available for day-time use.

Activities are centred on the spectacular year-round game viewing in this area with morning, evening or full-day vehicle safaris on offer and the chance to see buffalo, elephant, giraffe, leopards, lions, cheetahs, gazelles and more. While the camp is reasonably small for a permanent lodge and located in a relatively quiet area, it is open to other safari companies and a certain degree of vehicle traffic can be expected. Guided Grumeti River Bush Walks offer a slower-paced nature viewing experience, with the chance to see the resident hippos. As with other camps in this area, night-time game drives and walks are not permitted. Seasonal balloon safaris can be arranged, with prior booking essential.

The accommodation comprises twenty spacious, elevated tents with dark wood and leather furnishings, en-suite bathrooms with double basins, large hot showers, flush toilets and wrap-around verandas offering panoramic views of the surrounding African bush. The tents are located at the bottom of a hill, accessed by stone stairs, so be aware that this property might not be suitable for those less able-bodied. There are askaris (guards) on duty 24 hours a day who will escort you to and from your room at night, power is supplied by a generator and a laundry service is available.

Children of all ages are welcome. While children under 16 years of age are not allowed on safari walks, nature walks for younger children are sometimes available within the confines of the camp. The tents are sizeable and there is space in four of them for a double bed, an extra bed, plus a sofa for a smaller child. Of course, the swimming pool is a big draw for families and a real asset for time spent relaxing between game drives. It’s worth noting that the camp is not fenced and so children must be supervised at all times.

Serengeti Migration Camp belongs to the Elewana Portfolio and offers the perfect compromise between a lodge and a tented camp. It is a picturesque, top-quality property with really good food and service, offering unadulterated luxury in a truly wild location.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
