‘Moments away from the Great Migration’
Serengeti Under Canvas comprises two private camps which move around Serengeti National Park five times a year, anticipating the movements of the Great Migration. This phenomenon where huge herds of zebra and gazelle follow over one and a half million wildebeest, is an annual movement across the Greater Serengeti-Mara ecosystems. Whist staying at Serengeti Under Canvas you’ll be offered morning, afternoon or full day game drives, to see wildlife. Nearby adventures include fishing at Lake Victoria and a visit to Olduvai Gorge. The camp facilities include en-suite safari tents and bush meals cooked on an open fire.
In Our Opinion‘This semi-permanent tented camp brings you tantalisingly close to animals involved in the Great Migration – children over the age of 6 are welcome – a great family opportunity’
Two mobile camps feature nine en-suite safari tents in each, with the availability of one family tent per camp. The bathroom includes a separate WC and double al fresco bucket shower. Interior is designed in a classical style with custom-made Indian rugs and crisp linens, with a comfortable sitting area enhanced by its day bed.
Guests can take part in morning and afternoon game drives, hot-air ballooning experiences, day trips and tours.
Choose from one full-day game drive or shorter, twice-daily drives. The continuous movements of the camps are based on the progress of the Great Migration, so you will not have to travel far to witness the vast herds. When the herds are not in easy reach you will enjoy a different, more private experience due to the lack of other vehicles.

A picnic lunch is served on the lake shore before you set off on the return journey. Minimum of 2 guests and one months’ notice required. Additional costs apply for this activity.
