Ubuntu Migration Camp stops at three spectacular locations across the north, west and south of the Serengeti, following in the tracks of massive herds of wildebeest as they cross the vast plains of the Serengeti in an ancient migration cycle.


The open-plan main area spills into the surrounding wilderness – impressive views of the landscape stretch as far as the horizon. Breakfast and lunch are served under canvas in the next-door dining tent, while dinner is often enjoyed under the stars beside the glowing embers of the campfire, to the soundtrack of the Serengeti’s nocturnal animals.

Ubuntu’s eight suites are spacious under-canvas safari tents, designed to balance traditional safari authenticity with true comfort. Each room has king-sized beds (twin beds are available) and en-suite bathrooms with hot-water safari bucket showers and flushing toilets.

Three times a year this traditional-style safari camp packs up and moves to keep up with the massive herds of wildebeest as they migrate in a never-ending cycle in search of fresh grazing and plentiful water.

Ubuntu West (May to July)

In May, Ubuntu is on the move, travelling to the Western Corridor with the herds as they continue their cyclical trek to the North. Home is close to Handajega, a serene and peaceful setting between the Nyakoroma Hills and the border of the National Park, and days are spent watching the wildebeest cross the Grumeti River as the predators stalk their every move.

Ubuntu North (August to November)

From late July to October, Ubuntu is positioned to intercept the Great Migration in the northern Serengeti as the herds make their way towards Kenya and the Maasai Mara. Daily game drives stop regularly at the Mara River to observe the spectacular river crossings across waters populated with Nile crocodiles and hippo, providing dramatic and exciting game viewing. The northern plains are home to large herds of resident plains game throughout the year – this draws high numbers of predators, and so sightings of lion, leopard and cheetah roaming the grasslands are frequent. Herds of elephant can be found in the lush woodland that lines the Mara River as well as an astounding array of birdlife, with over 500 species in the area.

Ubuntu South (December to March)

As they have done for millennia, the herds will eventually answer the call of the migration and head for the southern Serengeti’s endless grasslands. Here they will rest and graze on the newly sprouted grasses, and in February, the plains are speckled with thousands of tiny wildebeest babies as the mothers calve in a remarkably synchronised and awe-inspiring event.
