NOMAD SERENGETI SAFARI CAMP - SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
Nomad Tanzania's Serengeti Safari Camp was the first of it’s kind and designed with a purpose in mind - to be in the best possible location to view the wildebeest migration as it covers hundreds of miles of the Serengeti National Park each year. The wildebeest move and this is what our Serengeti Safari Camp is all about - understanding the Serengeti seasons and game movements and mirroring them.
Each year this little camp casts off from Lamai Serengeti and begins its own journey. Covering hundreds of miles and moving every couple of months (not during your stay) along a route that the herds have travelled for hundreds of years.
The camp is effortlessly comfortable - a home from home. From the outset the focus has been clear - to deliver a superlative experience of the extraordinary wildlife in this part of the world without damaging the environment that has so inspired us over the years.
The camp follows the migration throughout the year around the Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania and moves location around 4 or 5 times per year to be in the same location as the migration.
Serengeti Safari Camp was one of the first camps to imitate the seasonal migration of the wildebeest migration, moving 4/5 times a year to be in the best possible location to see the herds. Nomad have maintained the original pioneering feel of the camp and you can be assured of a comfortable bed, a hot shower and a flush toilet. They operate on strict environmentally friendly principles and use eco-flush loos which use very little water - 90% less than a conventional toilet.
The camp has just 5 Meru style ensuite tents - there's a spacious bedroom and dressing area, with a sink and big jugs of cold water, and hot provided in the morning and evening or whenever you need it. The safari-style bucket shower is ensuite at the rear of the tent as is the toilet. The beds are comfy and made up with fresh linen and soft pillows. There are chairs on the veranda where you can relax and enjoy the sensational views of the Serengeti and passing wildlife.
There is one Meru-style family tent which is perfect for families travelling with children. Designed to the same footprint and make up of the safari tents – the family tents have two full size safari tents each with their own ensuite bathroom and connected via an adjoining lounge area.
After studying the migration and shadowing its movements through the Serengeti nature has taught us that it rarely conforms to maps and dates – the camp’s objective is always to be in the best available position for the migration although it may not always be where it's "supposed" to be.
Serengeti Safari Camp is open year round because there is always some element of the migration to see as it moves throughout the Serengeti National Park changing location to follow the movements of the migration – it is important to remember that the herds can be unpredictable and their movements are always dictated by local weather patterns which are by their very nature changeable. Camp movements are pre-planned in an effort to be within reach of the herds but this cannot always be guaranteed.
You will set off early in the morning in a shared vehicle with your guide in search of the herds and the plethora of other wildlife that call the Serengeti home. Depending on what everyone in your group fancies doing for the day you'll either return for lunch in camp before heading out again in the afternoon. Or you may all decide to take a picnic lunch with you and spend the whole day exploring the Serengeti.
We recommend that you consider a private car and guide so there are no limits to your game viewing - you will be able to follow your own interests and timescale.
SERENGETI SAFARI CAMP IS OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND
