Experience & Activities  

Ehlane Plains Camp is established in the far eastern plains of the Serengeti, a remote and wildlife-filled pocket of the savannah. This is where the magic begins, this is where your dream of wild Africa comes alive. ‘Ehlane’ is a Zulu word which translates to ‘wilderness.’ Ehlane Plains has embraced just this ‘wilderness’ concept by introducing the first ever in the Serengeti plains, Star-Gazer sleep out platform exclusively adjacent to three tented suites which allow for guests to sleep out under a ceiling of star studded night skies: an impression that will last a lifetime!

The camp is open, no borders or rails, and so the wildlife comes and goes. The dining and lounge area are located in the centre of the camp, the meeting point for exciting stories and meals by the campfire. Share your experiences with friends and family with the satellite WiFi connection. The camp itself is permanently positioned throughout the year, closing only for the long rainy season of April & May.

Wildlife viewing and bird watching game drives within the central Serengeti are offered twice per day. Balloon safaris are a romantic and evocative way of experiencing the wilderness of East Africa, as you silently fly over the plains teeming with herds of wildlife in the early morning. Explore the intriguing wilderness on foot with our in-house armed walking guide; follow the tracks, smell the herds on the breeze and hear the crunch of fauna underfoot.


Tented Suite: The camp offers eight tents designed to merge with the eco-system, all under canvas and all with clear vistas of the wilderness ahead. Each tented suite contains a lounge cove with comfortable couches and coffee table, dressing area with handcrafted cupboards, net-draped king size bed with bedside tables and lamps, mninga writing desk with chair, full length wall mirror and soft carpets to wander along. The suite flows into ensuite; a natural theme of shower, double hand basins and flushing toilet.
