Serengeti Explorer Camp Menu

The absolute premier game experience, Serengeti Explorer Camp offers guests the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to merge with nature and witness wildlife up close, in a setting quite unlike any other, raw Africa; Serengeti National Park. Following the seasonal rainfall, over one million white-bearded wildebeest and other species migrate from Masai Mara in Kenya to Serengeti in Tanzania on an annual basis, offering spectacular game viewing opportunities.

Uniquely, the elite tented camp moves twice a year within the national park to ensure the best possible sightings of this phenomenon. From mid-December to the end of March, the camp is located in the Ndutu region, the perfect site from which to witness the migration and the wonders of calving season. From the start of June to the end of October, the camp is located in the Lobo area, in proximity to both the Grumeti and Mara River, which offers equally sensational viewings of the migration and convenient access to the Lobo Airstrip. Serengeti Explorer Camp is not operational during the months of April, May and November, as well as early December.

About Serengeti

Serengeti migration area, otherwise known as the greater Serengeti area, comprises Serengeti National Park, in Tanzania and Masai Mara Game Reserve to the north, in Kenya, among other game reserves and conservation areas. The southern, Ndutu region – located in Tanzania, on the border of Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area – is predominantly characterised by sweeping grasslands but further boasts forests around Lake Ndutu. The northern, Lobo region – also located in Tanzania, but closer to the Kenyan border – is typically defined by its hilly and wooded landscape.

The climate in the Serengeti is mostly warm and dry although evenings can be chilly, especially during cooler months of the year, from June to October. The main rainy season takes place from March to May, but lighter rains also fall from October to November. When the lush vegetation dries up some time after the rains, animals seek out waters, driving migration patterns.

Explore Tanzania, East Africa


The Serengeti Explorer Camp comprises 12 tents in total, each decorated exceptionally with both luxury and comfort in mind, thus allowing guests to explore the best of nature in style. The tents are spacious, well-appointed and offer a great sense of privacy, catering to couples and families.
