Overview

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.

  • 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
