Overlooking the Grumeti River, where crocodile lie patiently in wait for the wildebeeste to cross the river on their journey from the Mara Triangle to the Ndutu Plains near Ngorongoro, this classic safari camp in the Northern Serengeti is the perfect place to witness the migration in action (October to November and April to June).
Migration Camp offers guests space, freedom, wildlife encounters and high standards of comfort. All of Migration's fourteen tents blend naturally into the surroundings, each with sweeping views of the Grumeti River and come with private bathroom facilities. From the raised private balconies of the spacious and secure tents, you will observe the brilliant malachite kingfisher as it hovers over the muddy waters eyeing its next meal. Crocodiles laze in the sun, their mouths wide-open, catching the cool breeze that flows from the river. Hippos snort in the nearby pools and elephant, antelope or even lion wander through the area occasionally. At Migration Camp guests can spend several hours watching wildlife and birds in relative peace and seclusion without ever setting foot onto the endless plains of the region. At night kerosene lanterns light the paths to the tents and the central dining area, campfire burns brightly and aromatic smoke from divine barbecues drifts through the still, yet cool Serengeti air. This is a safari affair of the genuine kind.
The Camp's central dining area, bar and library are all positioned atop a series of cantilevered decks. From here there are marvelous views of the game-filled plains, dour granite hillocks and dazzling African sunsets and skies. Comets and satellites zoom across the star-studded skies as the bright moon creates eternal shadows of the grazing wildebeeste and zebra. From your very special open-air spa bath outside your secluded honeymoon tent, you will see drama of the wildest kind unfold before your eyes.
Game drives and walking safaris here may be accompanied by alfresco picnics or sundowners. A fresh water pool awaits you on your return from the safari and the surrounding deck is a worthy place to take the Serengeti sundowner and watch the day turn into night. From the moment you cross the timber bridge through large granite rocks to reach the camp to the day you leave, Migration Camp has planned for you a safari as it should be.
