Dunia Camp embraces the philosophy of leaving the lightest possible footprint on the earth. Weathered wood, sturdy canvas and elegant linens make the mess tent comfortable and atmospheric, while brass hurricane lanterns add a flicker of traditional charm. Settle into one of the old leather armchairs and watch as the sun drops behind the iconic granite outcrops before enjoying dinner in the beautiful mess tent or outdoors under the stars.
All food at Dunia is homemade by our chef’s in our camp kitchen. During the wet season we buy our fresh vegetables from the communities at nearby Mugumu. A cooked breakfast is served on the deck overlooking the Serengeti plains, either before you set off on your game drive or afterwards. Another great option is to set off early with a packed breakfast to enjoy in the bush as the sun rises.
Light buffet-style lunches are on offer, although packed lunches that allow you to do a full-day game drive are a popular option. You can enjoy a silver-service communal dinner or choose a bush dinner up to 5km from camp. Bush breakfasts and lunches up to 10km from camp are available by arrangement.
Please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary requirements – our camp chefs will be happy to cater for your needs.
As you relax in camp or on your private veranda, look out for the creatures both large and small that could be spotted strolling past.
- Bat-eared fox
- Golden jackal
- Spotted hyena
- Serval (rare)
- African wild dog (rare)
The very best time for rewarding game viewing is in the cooler early mornings and late afternoons, when the animals are at their most active. Depending on the season, your day may start slightly earlier or later, but the general pace of life in camp is focused on giving you the very best possible game-viewing experience. If you have booked a private game-viewing vehicle do discuss personal schedule preferences with your guide.

FAMILY SUITABILITY LEVEL
We have a larger family tent with separate bedrooms to accommodate up to five family members. We love catering for the individual needs of families, however safety is always our top priority and the wilderness environment here is not conducive to providing a specific outdoor safari programme for children.
Families of six or more are guaranteed a private safari vehicle at no extra cost in low season. In high season, families with children under 12 are obliged to use a private game-viewing vehicle at an additional cost.
The minimum age at Dunia Camp is five years old. There is some flexibility and exceptions can be made depending on camp occupancy. Please chat to us about your needs – we will make every attempt to accommodate your wishes.
