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.

  • 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
