It is in the less visited northern corridor of the Serengeti which is a peaceful area where you can appreciate the size and remoteness of the Serengeti, as well as enjoying the local wildlife and some undisturbed game-viewing. Its location is beside a rocky outcrop which offers great views over the Grumeti River and the Serengeti hills and plains. The camp is accessed by scheduled daily flights into Lobo aistrip followed by a 40 minute 4x4 game drive transfer to camp.
This is an exclusive tented safari camp, but with some more contemporary elements in its design and food, making it not only luxurious but also in harmony with its surroundings. There is a swimming pool which will help you to cool off after an exciting day on safari. There is also a split level bar and lounge to relax in where you can enjoy an evening drink while reading a book and listening to the hippos in the river below.
At Serengeti Migration Camp guests stay in just 20 large, elevated and beautifully decorated canvas tents that all have 360 degree views from their verandahs. Whilst going to sleep, guests can listen to the rhinoceros crunching on the grass near their tents. After dark, guests are escorted back to their tents, because of hippos possibly grazing nearby. Guests will enjoy staying here and being so very close to nature. The tents make it easy to think that you are staying in Colonial Africa, a feeling that has sadly gone from many more modern safari lodges. Each room contains a leather arm chair, a writing desk, rocking chairs, and very comfortable beds with great homemade quilts. The bathrooms in each tent are very spacious. Each bathroom has a double basin, a flushing toilet and a shower recess. In line with the camps sustainable policy, water is heated by the sun. Each tent has its own private deck with a large view of the Serengeti National Park. Guests can enjoy the swimming pool and sun deck. There is also a family tent with extra beds for children (all ages welcome).
Guests choosing to eat at the Serengeti Migration Camp have many choices of food on the a la carte menu. Lunch and dinner are served in the dining room with a delightful view of the Grumeti River. Breakfast is served on an open air patio with a great view of the canyon and the wildlife.
Serengeti Migration Camp is located in the Serengeti National Park, home to over 3,000 lions, over 1,000 African leopards, many African elephants, black rhinoceros, African buffalo, Thomson's gazelle, Grant's gazelle, waterbuck, hyena, baboon, African wild dogs, and giraffes. The park is also home to over 500 different species of birds.
The camp now has special permission to use the bridge in front of Serengeti Migration Camp to access Kogatende/Mara river crossings. This will cut the journey time to around an hour to reach the Mara River. This means that the Serengeti Migration Camp is now ideally placed as a base from which to experience the incredible mass migration river crossings over the Grumeti in April - May and over the Mara in July - August. This is a private road and just for Elewana/Serengeti Migration Camp guests only.
Activities at camp include day game drives into the Serengeti National Park, 2 hour guided nature walks along the Grumeti River, balloon safaris, and bird watching. The camp is particularly well located to make the most of the Great Migration, which happens each year during May when over two million wildebeest invade the area.
Serengeti Migration Camp is part of the Elewana collection of luxury camps and lodges. The other camps in this collection include: Lewa Safari Camp, Elsa's Kopje, Tortilis Camp, Loisaba Conservancy, Arusha Coffee Lodge, Tarangire Treetops, The Manor at Ngorongoro and Serengeti Pioneer Camp.
