The absolute premier game experience, Serengeti Explorer Camp offers guests the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to merge with nature and witness wildlife up close, in a setting quite unlike any other, raw Africa; Serengeti National Park. Untamed wildlife which moves freely in its natural habitat offers an abundance of indescribable encounters – palpable, adrenaline-filled moments that will forever be cherished. Following the seasonal rainfall, over one million white-bearded wildebeest and other species migrate from Masai Mara in Kenya to the Serengeti in Tanzania on an annual basis, offering spectacular game viewing opportunities.
The Serengeti Explorer Camp – a completely solar powered setup – comprises twelve tents in total, each decorated exceptionally with both luxury and comfort in mind. The tents are spacious, well-appointed and allow for the sounds of nature to permeate even the indoor space. Only one entrance to each tent exists, meaning that all services, except housekeeping and the nightly turndown routine, take place within the peripheral areas of the tent. This provides guests with a wonderful level of privacy. The accommodation and service – offered by four dedicated “tent valets” who take care of guests’ comfort and safety – live up to outstanding standards and take “glamping” to the next level.
Uniquely, the elite tented camp moves twice a year within the national park to ensure the best possible sightings of this phenomenon. From mid-December to the end of March, the camp is located in the Ndutu region, on a hilltop site – the perfect location from which to witness the migration and the wonders of the calving season. From this vantage point, stunning views of Lake Ndutu and iridescent sunsets can be absorbed too.
From the start of June to the end of October, the camp is located in the Lobo area, in proximity to both the Grumeti and Mara Rivers, with convenient access to the Lobo Airstrip. It offers an equally sensational experience of the migration and the surrounding environment. The particular region in which the camp is located is highly exclusive, with few other camps in the area, offering raw and uninterrupted nature viewing. The Serengeti Explorer Camp is not operational during the months of April, May and November, as well as early December.
