Ubuntu Migration Camp: The Lowdown

Extraordinary Africa>Tanzania>Serengeti>Ubuntu Migration Camp

Ubuntu’s one of a number of seasonal camps which migrates around the Serengeti National Park, following in the footsteps of the Great Migration. As a seasonal- rather than totally mobile- camp, Ubuntu doesn’t move while guests are in there, and will hold its location for several months at a time.

What’s Ubuntu Migration Camp really like?

There are eight comfortable tents and two large mess tents where guests relax and eat meals. These tents strike an excellent balance between comfort and mobility. You’ll have an ensuite bathroom with safari shower and flushing loo, as well as a proper bed, but from the second you leave your tent you’re right in the bush- it’s not unheard of to have an animal or two walking through camp! Both the sleeping and mess tents have canvas floors, simple decor and an emphasis on things being comfortable and practical rather than out and out luxury.  In the evening you’ll usually meet with other guests around the camp fire comparing adventures from the day, and meals are jolly communal affairs.

What can I do at Ubuntu Migration Camp?

Here in the heart of the Serengeti, game drives are your main activity. These might be shared game drives (normally if you fly in to your Serengeti safari) or private (normally if you drive in to your Serengeti safari). Depending on which part of the Serengeti the camp’s located in when you visit, dawn hot air balloon flights- followed by a champagne breakfast- are also available for an extra fee. PLEASE NOTE:  Ubuntu’s movements are designed around where we expect the wildebeest migration will be, however this is a natural phenomenon, so not guaranteed. Best to sit back, enjoy the game viewing of the area, whatever it may be, and treat the migration as an added bonus!

Giving back at Ubuntu: For each night of your stay, a contribution is given to the foundation run by the owners. This helps to provide support for educational projects across Tanzania, including conservation education for communities living around the Serengeti. Also within the park they help support the anti-poaching dog tracking unit, as well as the cheetah and wild dog projects.
