Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp is located along the bank of the Grumeti River, raised up on the side of an impressive kopje known as Poacher's Lookout, with broad views north over the undulating northern hills of the Serengeti and beyond to the plains of the Masai Mara. The park is teeming with wildlife, including giraffe, lion, elephant, leopard, cheetah and baboon, and nearly 500 different types of birds. In June/July and October/November the annual migration of millions of zebra and wildebeest is usually here, and few places offer a closer view of this magnificent spectacle than Serengeti Migration Camp. There is also good resident game throughout the year, especially lion, leopard and elephant. This part of the park is a quiet backwater compared with the more visited areas to the south; less than 1% of the total visitors to the eco-system of the Serengeti reach this remote corner. Here guests can really experience the wild side of the Serengeti.
Migration camp combines this outstanding game viewing with a luxurious environment, fine food and the special closeness to wildlife that sleeping under canvas provides. It has just twenty stylish, classic safari tents - including a romantic honeymoon suite with hot tub, and a family suite with two tents with connecting bathroom - which are arranged around the lodge. Each of the well-furnished tents has a private veranda, an en-suite bathroom, with permanent plumbing and electricity is provided by generator evenings and mornings. Staff turn down guests' beds while the guests are at dinner, and serve them morning tea in their tents. The camp offers a full laundry service, and childminding facilities are available.
The main public areas of Migration Camp comprise a split-level lounge, library and bar area and are built into the side of Poacher's Kopje, from where there are sweeping views to the North and West. The valley resounds regularly with the grunting of hippo from the river below. The food is excellent, and guests often find themselves dining in a different location every night - in the restaurant, by the fire pit or under a large tree, with the table set in elegant bush style.
Game-viewing from the breakfast terrace can be superb. The camp features a swimming pool; a beautiful and relaxing place to recharge your batteries.
Serengeti Migration Camp is 12 kilometres from the Lobo airstrip and 90 kilometres from Seronera, which is a one-hour flight from Arusha.
The annual migration passes incredibly close to (and sometimes partly through) the camp. In such a location, it's not surprising that the camp is serious about game, offering superb day and night game drives in specially-designed open vehicles with the resident game guide, and some excellent short walking safaris, which allow guests to get up close to the wildlife. In addition, elegant bush dinners can be laid on, complete with fine furniture, table linen and place settings, outstanding food and waiter service.
