Mobile safari camps in the Serengeti could easily be considered the mecca of the safari experience. This flagship Tanzanian national park showcases some of the planet’s most extraordinary ecosystems, sun-soaked savannah plains that stretch as far as the eye can see and melt into the horizon, and an abundance of diverse wildlife. It is also the stage of the world’s most thrilling and spectacular displays of nature: the Great Wildebeest Migration.
With so much to see in this intriguing and extraordinary region, a luxury mobile safari is the optimal option for the discerning adventurous traveler. Step into the shoes of the original explorers of the vast Serengeti, remove the barriers between you and the untamed, and go off the beaten track like never before to the most remote areas of this renowned wilderness sanctuary. Tanzania has a lot of mobile safari camps.
Our team of intrepid adventurers at Ker & Downey® Africa have put together some of our top recommended mobile safari camps in Tanzania’s Serengeti, all offering a most exclusive experience of the bush at its most unbridled, and uninhibited.
Nomad Serengeti Safari Camp, one of the Serengeti’s environmentally conscious mobile safari camps, settles for nothing less than utmost comfort, and life-changing experiences in the Serengeti. The six open-plan mobile Meru style tents and indomitable crew that make up the camp are constantly on the move from one Serengeti site to the next, guided by the massive herds on their mission to seek out greener grass.
The goal of the camp is simple: to get as close as possible to the action of the migration. An adventure, with all the comfort of a classic, luxury safari, coupled with highly-skilled guides makes this an experience never to be forgotten!
Singita Explore is an exclusive-use mobile safari camp made up of six canvas tents, custom-designed to suit each individual group, combining the thrill of camping in the wild with all the luxury, comfort and service Singita is renowned for. Located in the most isolated region of the private Grumeti Reserve in Tanzania’s Serengeti, Singita Explore provides the experience of “roughing-it in great style”.
The mobile camp is completely off the grid, and is a brilliant example of Singita’s commitment to long-term sustainability. The camp blends seamlessly into its environment, leaving no trace and affording guests the opportunity to really connect with nature and the rhythm of their wild surroundings. Ideally situated on the route of the Great Wildebeest Migration, Singita Explore is a real-life adventure waiting to happen!
The luxurious, mobile Olakira Migration Camp comprises nine beautifully appointed en-suite tents, as well as mesh-covered stargazing tents which allow guests to sleep under a sky of glittering stars at night. The canvas tents blend seamlessly into the wild surroundings, offering intimate encounters with the game, and leaving no trace behind when they move.
The mobile camp follows the Great Wildebeest Migration throughout the year and is a great option for those wanting to explore the vast Serengeti, moving from the southern plains (from December to March) to witness the calving season, to the north (between June and November) to witness the treacherous Mara crossing.
Lemala Mara & Ndutu is one authentic mobile tented camp boasting beautifully appointed spacious tents, set up in magnificent locations in the Serengeti. The camp moves north and south with the seasons, offering guests the most high quality wildlife experience as well as front row seats to the Great Wildebeest Migration.
Ideally located in the Ndutu region of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in the south, Lemala Ndutu Camp offers ringside seats to the migration from December to March. From July to October, Lemala Mara, situated very close to the Mara River (but far away enough to not disrupt the behaviour of the wildlife) specialises in the great wildebeest migration herds crossing the mighty Mara.
The traditional fold-away canvas safari tents of Legendary’s Serengeti Mobile Camp provide guests with uninterrupted views over the savannah plains of the Serengeti, offering spectacular views. Professionally guided game drives and walking safaris in the area are designed to take guests right up to the action, providing wildlife experiences like never before. This is a true mobile safari camp.
The camp moves to three different locations each year following the thundering hooves of the Great Wildebeest Migration. From December to April, the camp can be found in the south to catch the wonders of the calving season, before moving west during the months of May, June and July, and from July through to November, the camp is located in the northern Serengeti, perfectly positioned to view the dramatic river crossings of the migration.
