Kimondo Migration Camp Experience
Kimondo Migration Camp pays homage to 1920s safaris, with traditional canvas tents and Moroccan-style furnishings. Handwoven rugs carpet the dining tent and burnished copper lanterns are set aglow in the evenings. We dine in the tent or under the stars, before moving to the campfire to share safari stories.
Meals & Refreshments
All food, including freshly baked breads, biscuits and muffins, is prepared in camp. At breakfast, choose from a continental buffet or a full English. Lunch is a light buffet with salads and fresh vegetables. If you prefer, we can also pack a picnic to be enjoyed in the bush. Dinner is a three-course meal to enjoy with your fellow guests.
We can cater to most dietary requirements. Please just let us know in advance.

A typical day on safari
We make the most of the cooler mornings and evenings, heading out on game drives. Times differ slightly with the seasons. If you have booked a private vehicle, you are free to plan your own schedule with your guide.
Start the day bright and early with a wake-up call and tea or coffee. Enjoy breakfast before departing for your morning game drive (or ask for a picnic to take along). Arrive back at camp mid-morning, with a chance to freshen up before lunch.
After a leisurely lunch, enjoy siesta time. Take a nap, read a book or just relax and enjoy your surroundings. Refuel with afternoon tea and then depart for an afternoon/evening game drive with sundowners. You'll be back in time for drinks around the campfire and dinner — the perfect chance to unwind after a long day in the bush.
Our nine canvas tents, including one family tent, have king-sized or twin beds with cast-iron frames, handwoven rugs and wooden furnishings. There are en suite bathrooms with outdoor bucket showers, a flushing toilet and hot running water. The lounger on your veranda is the perfect spot for a post-lunch snooze.
Featured Wildlife in the South
As a migration camp, Kimondo moves with the seasons, following the wildebeest herds around the Serengeti. The camp is closed in November and through the rainy season from April to June.
Northern Serengeti: July to October
Over this key migration season, we’re in the north of the Serengeti to watch the wildebeest cross the Mara River from the Lamai Wedge. This crossing — when the wildebeest crash across the river where crocodiles lie in wait — is among the most famous natural events in the world and the focus of many National Geographic documentaries. Besides wildebeest, zebras and antelopes, you can also spot the predators who prey on these massive herds.
Southern Serengeti: December to March
As the wildebeest come back across the river from Kenya, we pack up and move to the lush grasslands in the south where animals gather to give birth and graze. You can often watch these mighty herds right from camp, as well as on game drives farther afield.
Kimondo Migration Camp is a great choice for families with young children. We do not offer a specific programme for children, but welcome children over the age of 5. An extra bed can be added your tent or request our family tent. Please note that we recommend children under 12 shares with an adult. Ask your agent about booking a private vehicle for your family’s safari.
