Ubuntu Camp (Asilia)

Ubuntu Camp is a small, seasonal camp located in the Serengeti National Park. It moves with the Great Wildebeest Migration across the Serengeti and consistently offers spectacular game viewing opportunities. The camp itself is an intimate, traditional canvas safari camp designed to give you as much of an under-the-skin Serengeti adventure experience as a truly authentic and comfortable one. A close-knit team of friendly Tanzanians ensure that traditional hospitality, great food and a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere remains at the heart of Ubuntu Camp.




Ubuntu Camp travels with the natural flow of the wildebeest through the Serengeti. From late July to October the camp is positioned to intercept the migration in the North of the Serengeti before it relocates to the south close to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area from December to February. As the herds move west so does the camp and it is positioned in the Western Corridor from May to mid-July to rendezvous with the migration as it moves north again.

Need to Know

Our guides, who spend 11 months of the year with the herds are able to pass on insight—gained through generations of experience into the fascinating facets of this extraordinary cycle of life. ‘Ubuntu’ refers to the human characteristics of generosity, consideration and humane-ness towards others. Ubuntu Camp encompasses this characteristic in its personalised and warm hospitality. Ubuntu in the West (May- July) In May, Ubuntu Camp moves to the area known as the Western Corridor, setting up camp near Handajega, which is between the Nyakoroma Hills and the border of the Serengeti. The camp is perfectly located to catch the wildebeest herds crossing the Grumeti River.

Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

Ubuntu in the North (July-October) The Northern Serengeti plains are home to large herds of plains-game throughout the year, drawing lion and cheetah to the grasslands where they constantly search for an opportunity to bring down easy prey. In the lush woodland that thrives alongside the Mara River you’ll find herds of elephant and shy leopard, as well as astoundingly diverse birdlife; over 500 species can found here throughout the year. Ubuntu in the South (December-March) As they’ve done for millennia, the herds will eventually answer the call of the migration and head for the southern Serengeti’s endless grasslands; the perfect place to calve, graze and rest. They won’t be left alone here though; lion and cheetah will follow in their wake to claim their share of the spoils.

Ubuntu Camp is a seasonal camp of eight tents with two lounge/dining areas. The camp itself is a traditional under-canvas camp designed to balance safari authenticity with comfort. Each tent is either a double or twin (triples are also available) with toilets and ‘pukka’ safari bucket showers in en-suite bathrooms. The communal area is an open plan design spilling into the surrounding wilderness. Here you can enjoy a drink whilst relaxing in the lounge and bar with views that extend as far away as the horizon allows you to look. The dining room is also pure Africa—under canvas and entirely at one with nature.


Ubuntu camp operates in areas of great concentration of game. For 2015, Ubuntu Camp operates in Southern NCAA from 15th December 2014 to 15th March 2015, the Western Corridor from 1st May to 15th July and the Northern Serengeti from 25th July to 15th November and then returning to Southern NCAA.
