Overview

The Sanctuary Serengeti Migration Camp is a charming mobile camp which moves between three different locations to follow the migration as it travels across the Serengeti National Park, Northern Tanzania. Depending on exact migration movements, the camp is set up in the Western Serengeti from April to July, the Northern Serengeti from August to November and the Southern Serengeti from December to March. There is a rich abundance of wildlife to enjoy from wildebeest, zebra and gazelle to lion, hyena, cheetah and leopard, and the predator versus prey action is spectacular. Elephants are particularly fond of coming close to the camp, a delight to behold! Accessible via light aircraft, the camp’s various locations are truly wild. Note that it’s important to pack wisely, there is a 15kg limit for light aircraft luggage in one soft bag.

The main communal tents are simple but comfortable. The bar, lounge and dining areas are positioned for optimum views across the wide open plains and sofas are dotted strategically around the site. The food is really good and delicious bush picnics can be provided for days away. Private dining is also offered at selected spots around the camp.

The camp belongs to the Sanctuary Retreats portfolio which places firm emphasis on professional guiding and the morning and afternoon game drives are phenomenal. Note that there is potential for vehicle clustering in some parts of this busy National Park; however ultimately nothing can detract from the superb game-viewing opportunities. With its 500 bird species, the Serengeti is a real treat for ornithologists, so binoculars are a must!

The accommodation comprises 10 luxury safari tents, each with an en-suite bathroom with indoor bucket shower, hairdryer and electric plug points. There is a personal attendant for each tent, on hand to provide hot water for the shower whenever required.

Children aged 6 and up are welcome and child rates apply. Note that children aged 15 and younger are required to share a tent with parents. Animals are free to wander through camp and while it is unlikely that they would approach humans or tents, parents must keep a watchful eye on their children at all times.

Sanctuary Serengeti Migration Camp is a classic and relaxed camp which moves between truly wild locations. There is a real sense of being close to nature and the year-round migration viewing opportunities coupled with warm service and genuine comfort make for a wonderful stay.

  • 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.

  • The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
    There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
    Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
    Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!
