The reason for the moving is that it can be close to where the best of the wildlife action should be at that time of year. In the Serengeti most of the wildlife action is in the south from about December to March, then moves north and west, and ends up in the north of the park between about July and October.
From this excellent base you will be able to enjoy some stunning wildlife experiences with your guide, on morning and afternoon/evening game drives. We also take time to enjoy bush lunches, and sundowner drinks and nibbles are a must as the sunsets over the Serengeti.
The camp has just 8 to 12 large tents (depending on how busy the season
is). Obviously the versatility of the camp's
location means that there is nothing permanent about this camp. And this is
part of its attraction! It is a simple yet very comfortable camp, which
in terms of camping is quite luxurious as it has en-suite bathrooms, proper
beds, and you are treated to great food and service by your camp staff.
If you want to be out in the midst of the wilderness of the Serengeti, this is certainly one camp to consider.
Open: It is closed from April to June and again in November.
Location: The camp moves between two different locations so it can be close to where the best of the wildlife is in each season. It will be in Small Marsh (Ndutu) from December to March, and in Bologonja (Serengeti) from July to October. The nearest airstrips are Ndutu (for Ndutu) and Lobo or Kogatende (for Serengeti)
Rooms: There are 10-12 (depending on the season) large en-suite tents with netted windows. Double, twin, single, triple and family (quad) tents are available. The beds all have mozzy nets. The bathroom has an area for a hot bucket shower and there is a flush loo. Lighting in camp is a mix of candles, kerosene lamps and solar lights.
Activities: You will be in great spots for excellent game drives, plus there will be sundowners each day too.
Dining: There is a large dining tent where meals are taken, but sometimes bush lunches or picnic breakfasts or lunches are a nice way to enjoy the wilderness too.
Children: The recommended minimum age is 6yrs, and children under 12yrs must share a tent with at least one adult.
Health: This is a malarial area.
Communication: No wifi, and mobile signals are intermittent to say the least!
"nice, friendly staff. a bit scary at first to hear lions roar right next to the tent, so not for the faint hearted, but a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience nature and animals from very close."
