Kimondo Migration Camp pays tribute to an age when merchants from North Africa crossed the Serengeti on camels to trade ivory and spices along the East Coast. The mobile camp constructed of wood and canvas reflects traditional safari style with a Moroccan accent – simple, elegant and totally at home in this unspoilt landscape.
Rich, handwoven rugs line the floors in the mess tent, where burnished copper lanterns glow into the night. Dinner is served either in the dining tent or under the African night sky. Afterwards, trade stories of the day’s sightings beside the crackling campfire.
Our camp chefs prepare all meals in camp, and bake fresh bread, biscuits and muffins daily. Breakfast is a tempting buffet-style spread – choose from a Continental or a full English breakfast. Light, buffet-style lunches in camp include fresh salads and vegetables with your main course. Alternatively, ask for a picnic lunch basket or bush lunch to maximise your time in the bush. Dinner is a three-course silver service affair.
Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements – our camp chefs will be happy to cater for your needs.
When Kimondo is in the north, look out for:
- Nile crocodile
- Spotted hyena
- Black rhino (rare)
When the camp migrates south on the seasonal trail of the massive herds of wildebeest, common sightings include:
- 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.
