Overview

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.

  • 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.
