The detail

Nestled amidst the open plains between the Serengeti National Park and the Grumeti River, Simbavati Migration Camp is a beacon of luxury and adventure. This mobile camp moves its prime location twice a year, to follow the wildebeest migration, and to capture the calving season.

Simbavati Migration Camp moves seasonally through the Serengeti, following the wildebeest migration. The luxury mobile camp is based in the north from June to October, perfectly placed to witness the Mara river crossings. It moves to the southern plains from December to March in prime position, where the wildebeest give birth to thousands of calves each year.

Six luxurious mobile tents are positioned to embrace the tranquillity and majesty of the wilderness while twice-daily game drives seek out the wildebeest and a myriad of other wildlife on safari. Guests can watch the birdlife and animals right from the camp too, allowing for moments of pure awe and contemplation.

Game drives take place in the early morning and late afternoon when the animals are naturally most active.

The camp has a central dining and lounge tent where guests can congregate for meal times whilst watching the zebras or Thompson’s gazelle pass by the camp. Several times a week, dinner is a more hearty, campfire style meal served under the stars in a 'boma', a circular enclosure originally made from branches. The cosy, lantern-lit ambience recalls the early days of safari piorneers.

Price includes

  • Accommodation, all meals, beverages (excluding premium brands and cellar wines), scheduled open vehicle game drives, walking safaris (must be pre-booked), one night game drive per two night stay.
  • Return shared transfers to / from Fort Ikoma Airstrip.
