Overview

Dunia is a high quality, traditional tented safari camp located in the central sector of the Serengeti in North Tanzania, a 45 minute drive from the Seronera airstrip. It is one of the Serengeti's prime game viewing areas and combines both predatory wildlife (large densities of lions and cheetahs) and migration viewing opportunities (December to March). This authentic and high-impact safari experience is inevitably popular, meaning substantial visitor traffic at times, but the camp’s elegance and affable hosts make for a lovely stay.

The secluded camp is centred round a canvas mess which houses the restaurant and main communal guest area. The views across the Serengeti plains are beautiful, and wildlife roams through the camp at night. Hyenas, giraffe and zebra can be seen at a safe distance from all areas.

The accommodation comprises eight comfortable guest tents with private en-suite bathrooms and bucket showers. Activities are mainly focussed on game drives, but there are other things to do including hot air balloon safaris followed by champagne bush breakfasts, sunrise breakfasts atop Soit Le Motonyi rock, and bird watching tours.

Children from 6 years of age are welcome. There is one family tent with a king size bed and two single beds in a separate section. Private safari vehicles are guaranteed for families of six or more during the low season, although in high season any family with children under 12 are obliged to book a private vehicle at additional cost. Private game drives mean greater flexiblity for families, and the expert guides are well accustomed to entertaining children with their bush know-how and incredible wildlife stories. It is important to note that the camp is not fenced and animals do wander through. Whilst it is true that the wildlife tends to stay away from humans and tents, parents will need to keep a close eye on children and not allow them to wander off or play independently.

Belonging to the Asilia Africa stable, Dunia Camp has the feel of the classic safari camps of days gone by, with fantastic service and a little luxury thrown in. Guests can be assured of a wonderful stay in this prime location.

  • 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

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
