Serengeti Safari Camp

Tanzania’s pioneering mobile camp that moves seasonally to be in the best possible location to witness the great herds; still doing it in East African tented style with migration-chasing adventures and your own private car and guide to take you out into the midst of the action.

Nomad Tanzania was among the first companies to start mobile safaris in the Greater Serengeti.  The company built its reputation on exceptional guiding.  A unique micro-finance model allows each guide to buy his own vehicle (equipped to high Nomad standards), and to earn from it on each safari, meaning that he is doubly invested in each trip.  In this way Nomad is able to retain a longstanding team of highly trained guides, which are a cornerstone of the company.  Opt for a private guide at Serengeti Safari Camp for the luxury of complete flexibility and local expert knowledge which takes the safari into a new dimension.  The default is shared game drives, still with expert Nomad guides.

The camp strikes a balance between comfort and mobility.  Moving 4-5 times a year to be located within reach of the herds as they follow their age old route, the camp is designed in the old pioneering style.  Camp life is epitomised by early morning tea delivered to your tent, gin and tonics around the campfire, meals shared around a communal table and hot safari bucket showers before retiring to a cosy bed.  Days are spent out in search of the herds and accompanying predators, possibly with a picnic breakfast or lunch.




An authentic safari experience under canvas, Serengeti Safari Camp moves 4/5 times a year to be within reach of the migrating herds of wildebeest and accompanying predators.  The camp is pioneer-style, with all the comforts you need and nothing that you don't.  Very much experience-oriented, the camp offers expert guides to all guests on a shared basis and there is the option of a private vehicle and guide for an additional supplement.

Need to Know

Serengeti Safari Camp is designed to be light enough on its feet to be able to move seasonally with the migration, but we've catered for all your creature comforts. There are comfortable beds, hot safari-style bucket showers and water-conserving eco-flush toilets. This is camping, but not as you know it.


Serengeti Safari Camp combines well with Kuro Tarangire and Entamanu Ngorongoro between July and November and with Entamanu Ngorongoro and Lamai Serengeti. It is also possible to connect with our camps in the West (Greystoke Mahale and Chada Katavi) on our twice weekly shared charter flight, or with Ruaha and Selous on regular scheduled flights from Manyara. Please contact us for advice on how to include Serengei Safari Camp in an itinerary.

The Serengeti Safari Camp was one of the first camps to imitate the seasonal migration of the wildebeest migration, moving 4/5 times a year to be in the best possible location to see the herds.  We've maintained the original pioneering feel of the camp and you can be assured of a comfortable bed, a hot shower and a flush toilet (we operate on environmentally friendly principles and therefore use eco-flush loos which use very little water).

There's a spacious bedroom and dressing area, with a sink and big jugs of cold water, and hot provided in the morning and evening or whenever you need it.  The safari-style bucket shower is en-suite, reached through a flap at the rear of the tent, as is the toilet.

The beds are comfy and made up with fresh linen and soft pillows.  There are chairs on the verandah where you can relax and enjoy the unfettered view of Africa before you .


Open year round - the camp moves seasonally to be in the best location to view the migration.

December to April: the camp is on the southern Serengeti Plains with access to the main herds as they calve through February. Birding is excellent during this time, as is general game viewing.

May to Early July: Moru Kopjes area, central Serengeti Plains, and Western Corridor.

The migration patterns can be unpredictable at this time of year, but the wildebeest rut (May) and the crossing of the Grumeti River (June/July) are spectacular if caught.

Mid-July to November: northern Serengeti close to either the Mara or Sand Rivers, offering great game viewing and crossings of either of the rivers.

Late November: the camp heads south again, arriving on the southern Serengeti Plains around mid-December.
