Things to Do at Ubuntu Migration Camp
As we follow the migration, Ubuntu’s emphasis is on witnessing the herds move across the Serengeti. But there’s plenty more to pack into your day, from hot-air balloon rides to visits to neighbouring villages.
Safari is at the heart of Ubuntu Migration Camp and we run twice-daily game drives. We have open and closed vehicles, the latter with pop-up roofs so guests can stand at wildlife sightings. All vehicles have power points to keep cameras fully charged and drinks cold throughout the day.
Hot-air balloon rides
At Ubuntu Migration Camp North, watch the sun rise over the Serengeti plains from a hot-air balloon and appreciate the full scope of the migrating herds from above. Booking is essential. This activity is at extra cost and is weather dependent.
Cultural and community visits
In the north, we can organise visits to a nearby village for guests keen to learn more about the local Kuria way of life.
Guests have access to one of our specially modified photographic vehicles (based at either Sayari or Namiri Plains, depending on Ubuntu Migration Camp’s location). The open vehicle allows keen amateurs and professional photographers alike to shoot at eye level with wildlife. It is equipped with all the gear to ensure award-winning shots — from beanbags and camera rests to 360° swivel seats. You can read more about the vehicle here. Please enquire to ensure availability of the vehicle and confirm any additional fees.
