LOCATION: Migration Camp is located in roughly the center of the northern Serengeti. Situated on a large ridge above the Grumeti River, the lodge offers commanding views of the surrounding landscape. Approximately 25 miles to the north is Kenya and the Masai Mara National Park. The border has been closed since 1977 and you are not allowed to drive into the Masai Mara from the Serengeti. The Central Serengeti, specifically Seronera, is located about 30 miles to the south. There are only two other lodges (Lobo Wildlife Lodge and Kleins Camp) in the entire northern Serengeti and one of them (Kleins) actually resides just outside the official border. Lobo Wildlife Lodge is located to the south east and is about a 1 hour drive away at game drive speed. Kleins Camp is situated about 1.5 hours to the northeast. Accordingly, the area surrounding Migration Camp is wonderfully remote and you will have the majority of this vast wooded wilderness to yourself.

ACCOMMODATION: Migration Camp consist of 20 luxury suites under canvas on elevated wooden platforms. There are 12 doubles (1 queen size bed), 7 twins (2 twin beds) and 1 honeymoon suite. The doubles can be converted to triples to accommodate two adults and one child. The Migration Camp tents are pleasantly spaced along the Grumeti River assuring relative privacy with numbers 1 - 13 on the south side of camp and 14 – 20 on the north side of camp. As previously cautioned, it is a long trek from the tents to the main lodge facilities, which could be a problem for some travelers. Due to the location next to the Grumeti River, hippo and buffalo frequently graze the immediate area during the night. You will be escorted to and from dinner each evening to assure your safety. The tents are massive and encompass 475 square feet of internal room space. Each tent at Migration Camp is well appointed with beautiful hardwood floors and rich furnishings including a writing desk, leather love seat and power outlets to charge your camera or camcorder batteries. There is a small balcony at the back of each tent with two cozy rocking chairs though the views are uninspiring (with the exception of the honeymoon suite). The award winning views are from the main lodge areas on the above hilltop. Each tent is equipped with en suite bathrooms with running water, dual washbasins, toilet, shower and even a hairdryer. The water is solar heated but there is a backup system that can be engaged to assure that there is always plenty of hot water. Water is as always the most precious commodity so please try to conserve where possible. The Migration camp honeymoon suite is truly magnificent. It is set further back from the river and partially up a hill allowing for beautiful views. The floor plan of the tent is very similar but the notable differences are the large private deck and private Jacuzzi tucked against the hill under the stars. Honeymooners receive the royal treatment and wine or champagne will adorn the Jacuzzi during the evenings. The main lodge at Migration Camp is set on a hilltop and includes the lounge, bar, library, swimming pool, fire pit and dinning tent. All of these areas have glorious views out over the woodlands. The surrounding vegetation is heavily wooded but you can usually see a few animals including baboons and if your lucky the wildebeest migration pouring through. The lounge and bar area, set with plush furnishings, is among the coziest in Tanzania.

FOOD & DRINK : Meals at Migration Camp are superb. Wake up calls are taken the night before and coffee or tea is delivered to your tent in the morning at the predetermined time. Breakfast boxes can be arranged for early morning game drives or you can enjoy breakfast on the outside patio next to the dinning tent. Breakfast consists of a mixed buffet with orders taken for eggs, omelets, bacon, toast, pancakes etc. The buffet consists of yogurt, nuts, cereal, breads, fruit and juice. Similarly to breakfast, you have your choice of dinning in for lunch or enjoying a lunch box if you plan a full day adventure game drive. The choice is yours. Dinner is the main event at Migration Camp and it is one of the few places where everyone joins together for dinner at one long dinner with the camp managers, Peter and Anita. When at capacity, two tables are arranged and Peter and Anita split up to lead each table. At just about every other lodge in Tanzania (with the exception of Kusini and sometimes Olduvai, Mawe Ninga and Plantation), guests always eat at separate tables. It is certainly a pleasure meeting with other guests over dinner and listening to Peter’s impressive bush stories. The feedback we have received has been overwhelming with regards to dinners here and it is usually one of everyone’s favorite aspects about the camp. Dinner is a sumptuous four courses with the main course being a choice of either chicken or beef or pasta. Dinners are on a 7-day rotation at Migration Camp ensuring each night you will enjoy a unique and delicious meal. All drinks including soft drinks, beer, wine and spirits are included in our packages at Migration Camp.

ACCESS : Migration Camp is usually incorporated into our fly-in and drive-back itineraries at the beginning of your safari. You will most likely be arriving at Lobo Airstrip (1hour drive) on your regional flight departing from the Arusha Air Strip. A night or two at the beginning of your safari at Migration Camp is a superb way to kick off your adventure before traveling to other areas of the Serengeti and onwards to the Crater and the other great parks of Northern Tanzania. Flying into the wild Northern Serengeti on your first safari day is a superb introduction to Tanzania. From Migration Camp, it is about a 2-hour drive south to the Seronera area of the Central Serengeti. It is a fairly long drive to the Central Serengeti but this is more than made up for by the stunning scenery and abundant wildlife. Keep a look out for lion and cheetah off from the main road as they are regularly sighted.

Migration Camp can also be incorporated into your itinerary at the end of your adventure in the Serengeti. The lodge does make an excellent spot to unwind, relax and enjoy your last night or two on safari.
