Ubuntu Migration Camp, Serengeti
Ubuntu Migration Camp follows the colossal herds of wildebeest as they journey around the Serengeti, moving between three key sites. From the dramatic river crossings in the north to the fertile grasslands in the south where the wildebeest give birth, we set up camp nearby to ensure you’re always close to the action.
Our traditional tented camp is designed to leave no trace. We can quickly disassemble it and move with the herds to new pastures. Every day, we’re out in the bush looking for wildlife such as lions or cheetahs attracted by the huge gatherings of prey. Over morning coffee, watch wildebeest males chasing each other or zebras tussling. For a sunrise to remember, start the day by gliding above the plains in a hot-air balloon. In the evening, look up as the stars reveal themselves.

This was our second trip to Africa but our first to Tanzania and the Serengeti National Park. This was also our first time staying in a tented mobile camp. This experience turned out to be the highlight of our 3 week trip. I can't express enough how impressed I was with the staff at this camp. From our guide Godson, to Samuel the camp manager and to all of the men working here the service was superb. The chef was excellent, the bartender was always accomodating and the morning wake up call, with coffee placed in our room, was delightful. Godson made our safari drives exciting, adventurous, educational and just plain fun. We came away with amazing photos and memories. I will always remember this group of men for their kindness, their smiles, their attention to detail, their singing and for taking such good care of us. I definitly left a piece of my heart at this camp. - lakepleasant2019
Arrived with members of my family not really knowing what to expect, but these guys were flawless in their hospitality. They really thought of everything, and were the most helpful and gracious hosts. The rooms were fully functional, and the staff were on hand for anything we needed. They also spent their evenings having drinks with us around the fire and dinner at a long table, it was a pleasure getting to know all of them. The food was excellent as well. We also had an excellent guide (David) who had great knowledge of the area and went above and beyond to give us an unforgettable experience. We were in an open vehicle which made all the difference (most other tours had regular 4x4s), which meant we experienced everything in a far superior way. We saw the most incredible animals and scenery in the 3 days we were there.
All in all, can't think of a single negative thing to say. Hats off to the guys at Ubuntu, I would live there if I could! - Maz19524732
We loved staying at this camp. We spent the first three days of a 10 day safari there and managed to see the "big 5" because of the expertise and knowledge of our driver Sebastian. He made us very comfortable and appeared to genuinely enjoy his job. The staff at the camp were very competent and friendly. The food was excellent as were the accommodations. - Henrike R
