Dunia Camp

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Enquire

Dunia, in Tanzania’s central Serengeti, is well placed for wildlife spotting. During the annual Great Migration, guests can watch giant herds of wildebeest moving through the area right from camp. Farther afield, you may spot lions using the granite boulders of Moru Kopjes to scan the plains for prey.

About DUNIA Camp

Our hospitable staff will do everything to ensure your comfort. Dunia is the only camp in Africa run entirely by women and the team is an inspirational example of what women can achieve in a male-dominated industry.

LOCATION

Location of Dunia Camp

Dunia is in the central Serengeti, part of Tanzania’s famous Serengeti National Park, surrounded by golden savannah. Twice per year, this area sees millions of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles passing through on their constant migration around the Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara. If you’re lucky, you won’t even need to leave camp to watch the vast herds grazing. 

The camp is ideally placed to explore three excellent game viewing areas: Seronera, the Moru Kopjes and the southern Serengeti plains. The Seronera River is a gathering place for lots of wildlife, providing ample opportunity for spotting predators in action. The Moru Kopjes are a cluster of old granite boulders, favoured by big cats that like to use them as lookout points. You might even spot the rare black rhino. The southern plains are covered in lush grass between December and May, perfect for calving wildebeest.

Where the safari comes to you

The safari comes right to Dunia, with the migrating wildebeest herds regularly passing the camp. Outside of the migration, there’s plenty more opportunity for wildlife spotting, too. During downtime, sink into a leather armchair with a cold drink in the open-sided dining tent and scan the sun-bleached plains for movement or get lost in a great book before retiring to your tent for an afternoon snooze.

A typical day on safari at Dunia Camp

We start the day early to find animals when they are most active, heading out on safari around dawn and again at dusk. Timing varies according to the season, but guests can expect the following from typical day on safari.

Start your day bright and early with a wake-up call and tea or coffee. Enjoy breakfast before departure for your morning game drive (or have it packed as a picnic to take with you). You'll arrive back in camp mid-morning, with a chance to freshen up before lunch. 

After a leisurely lunch, enjoy siesta. Read a book or just relax and enjoy the views from your private viewing deck. Refuel with afternoon tea and then depart for your afternoon/evening game drive with sundowners. You’ll be back in time for drinks at the bar and dinner – the perfect chance to unwind after a long day in the bush. If you have a private vehicle, you can plan your day with your guide.

Game drives

Head out early in the morning to see predators at their most active. A second game drive departs in the late afternoon as temperatures begin to cool. We’ll stop for sundowners as dusk sets in. Seronera, the southern Serengeti and Moru Kopjes are all within easy reach, each known for great wildlife sightings. 

Our vehicles are either open-sided or closed with roof hatches allowing you to stand for a better view. They are all fitted with charging points and fridges, so you can easily spend a whole day on safari.

Meals and refreshments

The food at Dunia is prepared on-site by our chefs. During the rainy season, we buy fresh vegetables from the communities around Mugumu and source the rest of our food as locally as possible. Start the morning with a hearty cooked breakfast on the deck overlooking the Serengeti plains. Alternatively, you can eat when you return from your game drive or we’ll pack breakfast for to enjoy in the bush.  

Lunch is a light buffet at camp or packed up for those who want to spend a full day out in the bush. A relaxed dinner is served at camp after the evening game drive, or opt to have a bush dinner under the stars.  

Please let us know your dietary requirements ahead of arrival and we’ll be happy to accommodate.

When to go

What to expect during the year

Peak season in the Serengeti is June to October when it’s driest, but there’s plenty to see all year round.

The Great Migration wildebeest herds are within driving distance of Dunia Camp for most of the year except August to October, when they have crossed the Mara River into the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The busiest months for tourism are July and August. If you’re looking for fewer crowds, we recommend travelling at a different time of year, if possible.

  • January - March

    Why travel at this time

    The wildebeest herds are calving in the southern Serengeti. There’s a dry spell in January and February between the short and long rains, which begin in March. Migratory birds are in the Serengeti during this period.

    Climate

    The long rains begin in March, with showers expected in January and February. The average maximum temperature is 27°C/81°F and with lows around 15°C/59°F.

    • Min Temp Range

      Low temp: 17°C / 61°F

    • Max Temp Range

      High temp: 27°C / 81°F

    • Rainy Seasons

      Rainfall: 135mm / 5.3in

  • April - June

    Why travel at this time

    April and May are when the long rains fall. It’s the best time to safari with minimal crowds and take advantage of low season rates. It doesn’t rain all day and the wildebeest herds will be moving northward at this time, arriving in the central Serengeti, around Dunia Camp. June is quite dry, and the summer holiday crowds have yet to arrive in the Serengeti.

    Climate

    April is the wettest month of the year, with less rain in May and hardly any by June. The average high is around 26°C/79°F with lows between 16°C/61°F in April and 14°C/57°F in June.

    • Min Temp Range

      Low temp: 15°C / 59°F

    • Max Temp Range

      High Temp: 26°C / 77°F

    • Rainy Seasons

      Rainfall: 141mm / 5.6in

  • July - September

    Why travel at this time

    This is peak season in the Serengeti, but the focus of tourism is mostly in the northern parts of the park, where the wildebeest herds can be seen crossing the river into Kenya. The dry conditions make for good wildlife viewing, as the grass is short and animals gather around waterholes. 

    Climate

    July through September is the driest time of year, with little rainfall. The temperature high ranges from 24°C/75°C in July to 26°C/79°F in September, with lows dipping to an average 13°C/55°F. 

    • Min Temp Range

      Low temp: 14°C / 57°F

    • Max Temp Range

      High temp: 25°C / 77°F

    • Rainy Seasons

      Rainfall: 33mm / 1.2in

  • October - December

    Why travel at this time

    Peak season is over and it gets a bit quieter in the Serengeti. The wildebeest herds are arriving back in the central Serengeti around Dunia. The migratory birds start to flock in with the short rains, which turns the landscape green again after the dry season.

    Climate

    The short rains usually start in late October or November, lasting for a month. The most rainfall occurs in December. The temperature high is around 27°C/81°F, with an average low of 15°C/59°F.

    • Min Temp Range

      Low temp: 15°C / 59°F

    • Max Temp Range

      High temp: 27°C / 81°F

    • Rainy Seasons

      Rainfall: 95mm / 3.7in

Guest reviews

Words can’t do this place justice. The staff are absolutely top notch, friendly and attentive. The tents are fantastic and the food is excellent. The after dinner singing and joviality are unique. Asilia know a lot about quality experiences and this was definitely quality.

Had an excellent time at Dunia, lovely location, great set up, beautiful views and the staff are a lot of fun! The chef, Grace, makes excellent food which is not to be missed out on! We went on a safari for my mother's birthday and they actually made the effort of making a lovely cake! The singing and dancing was lovely, and the rooms were very sophisticated, and we had regular wildlife visits.

WILDLIFE

Serengeti National Park wildlife

The Serengeti is home to a remarkable number of species, including over 70 big mammals and more than 500 bird species. The main event is the Great Migration, Africa’s second longest land migration, where around 1.5 million wildebeest, 500,000 Thomson’s gazelles and 250,000 zebras travel in an endless cycle around the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, following the rains. But there’s much more besides the migration herds. You’ll find the Big 5 (lion — numbering around 3,500 — leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo), as well as other predators such as cheetah, spotted hyena and wild dog (the latter mostly in the south). You might also spot hippo in the river, klipspringer, oribi and Coke’s hartebeest, serval (including unusual black melanistic varieties), bat-eared fox and golden jackal. Then there are super-rare animals to look out for, including the aardwolf and ground pangolin.

Migration Arrives At Rekero 3

Tanzania ITINERARY

10 Day Tanzania Highlights

From the scenic vistas of the Ngorongoro Crater to the endless plains of the Serengeti and white sandy beaches of Zanzibar, Tanzania offers the ultimate “safari and beach” destination.

The variety of options available for a Tanzanian safari and beach combination can make the decision process quite daunting. In this itinerary, we have aimed to give you two very different options of the same basic routing in order to highlight the differentiating factors affecting the decision process. The first option is based on a driving safari, taking in classic camps in iconic locations, while the second option offers a flying safari alongside an elevated quality of accommodation in similar locations.  

Frequently Asked Questions
