- Intimate, mobile camp
- Follows the wildebeest migration
- Spectacular predator action
- Exceptional guiding
Serengeti Safari Camp is an attractive, high-specification mobile camp which moves around the Serengeti National Park, northern Tanzania. The first of its kind, it was designed to change location four or five times each year to follow the great wildebeest migration as it covers vast distances across the Serengeti. Depending on the position of the camp, it is reached either via light aircraft from Arusha or via 4WD vehicle.
The camp is simple but delightful with comfortable furniture. The main tent has walls that can be opened and houses the attractively-presented communal dining table where delicious food is served. There is a separate tent nearby with library, bar and fire-pit.
The accommodation comprises six spacious and open-plan Meru tents dotted around the bush. Each tent has a separate dressing area with good storage facilities, and an en-suite bathroom with chemical eco-flush toilets, washbasins and safari-style bucket showers (plenty of hot water is provided). One of the tents is for families, with two bedrooms and an adjoining seating area. Children of 8 and over are welcome, although given the unfenced nature of the camp they must remain under parental supervision at all times. With a maximum of twelve guests, the camp has a friendly, intimate feel.
Activities involve daily shared game drives, although it is possible to book private guided safaris offering greater flexibility at additional cost. Camp movements are pre-planned in an effort to be within reach of the herds. Although this can’t always be guaranteed due to the unpredictability of nature and weather conditions, the game-viewing is generally spectacular with strong sightings likely year-round. During the dry season (July-October), the wildebeest migration attracts high concentrations of lion, cheetah and leopard and whilst the Serengeti does get busy, nothing can diminish the excitement of seeing such superb predator action.
Serengeti Safari camp offers seamless service and a firm focus on game-viewing. The high density of wildlife in this stunning and varied landscape is nothing short of breath-taking and the mobile nature of the camp offers prime viewing opportunities in relaxed and comfortable surroundings.
The whole holiday start to finish was just fabulous, the accommodation was perfect and to a certain extent stunning at the Dar Hosnia in Marrakech.
The transport, guides and staff at both locations were wonderful with a special mention to the Douar Samra team in Imlill. They were more than a bit special.
The food at both locations was excellent and the ambience and fun we enjoyed in Douar Samra was beyond all expectations.
We made many new friends whom I am sure we will keep in touch with way beyond this holiday.
You put together a perfect package it was much more than just a great holiday it was a richly rewarding experience.
Just finally to say a big thank you to you for organising one of the best trips we have had.

Everything was fab, I especially loved Tuningi such a special place and my son got to see his favourite animal the cheetah (after a bit of time hunting about on foot!). Mauritius is lovely we saw quite a bit of the island in the end.

We had a wonderful trip to Morocco. What a fascinating country. Thank you so much for all of your help making things smooth and less stressful!
Here are a few things we wanted to pass on:
Dar Housnia was absolutely delightful. It was like an entire wing of a house to ourselves with perfect Moroccan decor. The private area where we ate was so cute, the riad staff so accommodating. I loved waking in the cozy space with our family and hearing both call to prayer as well as roosters. Just perfect.
I was a little unclear how to ask what time we were being picked up etc, but your office promptly replied to my emails - even on weekends- when we had these questions about transport times. Once, we met our guide in Imlil these details we not problematic as our guide “Abraham” totally took care of us. Abraham was awesome. You should definitely request him again in the future. He was young (29)and energetic. He had a ton of hiking experience in Imlil as he was from there. He also seemed to know everything else about morocco, the desert, the culture, etc, etc. He was approachable, kind, patient, great with our kids and answered SO MANY of our questions.
The hike was lovely - after rain the day prior in Marrakech - there was snow in the mountains. It was gorgeous. We may have been up for a longer hike up Mt Taboukel if I had known this was a realistic option for families ( I thought from reading that it was too technical for us). Yet not sure we had enough days for all these things always since getting in the desert was a priority.
The mountain house, Dar adar, was just as described… very basic. The wifi was broken (which was a nice break when you have pre-teens addicted to phones, plus my husband called no wifi an amenity to not be available by email for his work!)). There was no heat and the fireplace helped a tad - but was so very cold in the rooms. My husband loved the rustic space, I may have gone up one step in niceness of mountain accommodation if I had to do it over again. Yet, meeting the other families in this Dar Adar (including another Tourdust family from England) made this house very memorable.
We were then joined by our driver for the next several days, Jamal. What a fun guy and a perfect driver. He could joke with my kids, he had a fun smile, and he had worked with Abraham before so they were a great team. The drive to desert was long as I knew it would be. It was nice to have the stop on way there near Ait Ben Haddu. The drive back from desert was long. It was more near 10 hours of driving (plus 1 hour at lunch = 11 hours) but I wouldn’t have made any different choices.
The luxury desert camp was far and away the highlight of our trip. The tents were adorable, I was sufficiently warm even at night inside the tent. We loved the camel riding, the ATV vehicles at a nearby camp, sunsets on the dunes, music around the camp fire, meals with others at the camp and more.
The last night was at Riad Jona. This was so very very lovely. The food was amazing - such a good idea to eat here after our long drive back to Marrakech. They had a small dining pool plus a hot tub which was delightful. It was almost more of a boutique hotel as it had several rooms.
