Tanzania is legendary for its wildlife safaris, mountains, African bush, white beaches, friendly people and political stability, and is home to the world-famous Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.  It is also one of the oldest known inhabited areas on Earth with fossil remains of humans and pre-human hominids being found dating back over two million years.

The Serengeti National Park comes from the Masaai language meaning “Endless Plains”. This magnificent area has more than 2 million Wildebeest, which makes the annual Serengeti Migration such a spectacular event. 11.5 million of these ungulates migrate a distance of 1,800 miles searching for food and water supplies.  With an area teeming with wildlife and epitomising the true African bush, you are sure to capture moments that will stay with you forever.

Serengeti Wilderness Camp is a seasonal camp and located in the heart of the Serengeti National Park, with access to arguably some of the best game viewing in Africa. The style of camp is simple but with every comfort being taken care of. Seasonal camps have the benefit of being able to move to some of the best game viewing areas of the park and every three to six months we move to a new location. Serengeti Wilderness Camp comprises just ten spacious tents, we provide comfortable beds with quality linens, en suite eco-friendly toilet and bush-shower off an intimate dressing room area. The tents each have a shady verandah, where guests may relax and read quietly or perhaps watch birds and animals. A large, airy, central dining tent offers a comfortable lounge area with a small reference library and maps, some games and a recharging facility for cameras and videos. Our safari chef will prepare sumptuous meals for your enjoyment and special dietary requests are taken care of. We also have a typical safari campfire in the evenings for our guests to enjoy sundowners and snacks, and relive the day’s experiences.
