Overview

Ubuntu Migration Camp is an elegant, semi-permanent camp that moves three times a year across the vast plains of the Serengeti National Park, northern Tanzania, in pursuit of the great wildebeest migration. Settling in three spectacular locations in the heart of dense wildlife concentrations, the camp offers breath-taking scenery and unrivalled predator action. Depending on the camp’s location as it moves around, visitors either drive or fly in to the nearest airstrip.

The camp has a friendly feel, with the main area comprising a simple, open-sided mess tent with comfortable lounge and dining spaces and impressive views of the surrounding wilderness. There is a small bar and library, a tea and coffee station, and a fire-pit in the evenings. Facilities in such a genuinely wild location are simple but comfortable and the service is good.

The Serengeti offers solid year-round game viewing and the camp’s varied locations present optimum viewing opportunities with expert guides on hand. There is a firm focus on game drives, with guests sharing vehicles. Modern convenience is not lost in this wild setting, with all of the camp’s 4x4s fitted with cold drinks fridges and power points for recharging devices. Depending on the location, balloon safaris can be arranged and when the camp is in the north (July – October), trips to nearby villages are possible and visitors can learn about the traditional way of life of the local Kuria people.

The accommodation comprises seven pristine canvas tents, complete with king-sized beds (twin formation available) and en-suite bathrooms with hot water safari bucket showers and flushing toilets. A family tent is included, with a king-sized bed, two singles and en-suite bathroom.

The camp welcomes children aged five and over and whilst there is no particular children’s programme or personal guides, staff will prepare child-friendly food and arrange earlier meal times if required. Note that animals are free to wander through the camp and whilst they are unlikely to approach humans or tents, children must be under parental supervision at all times and those under the age of 12 are required to share a room with an adult.

Ubuntu is a simple, unpretentious camp offering an unwavering safari focus, warm and generous hospitality, and good value for money. It’s a great choice for those looking for a traditional bush-camp experience with spectacular wildlife on tap.

  • 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.
