The thing about the Great Migration – the greatest wildlife show on earth – is that you can never be quite sure when it is going to begin or pass through your area. With Ubuntu Migration Camp, this isn’t a problem. Small and seasonal, this camp follows the thousands-strong herds of wildebeest and ungulates as they move through the Serengeti National Park, promising unsurpassed wildlife-viewing opportunities.
Following the ancient migratory trails as they have for past millennia, wildebeest – chaperoned by large herds of zebra, gazelle, eland and impala – make their way from the Serengeti National Park to the Maasai Mara National Reserve and back in a perennial year-long cycle. The savannah and rivers, blackened by scores of wildlife, become action-packed hunting territory as the herds encounter predators in the tall grasses and murky waters.
Modelled in traditional safari style, Ubuntu Migration Camp is run by a close-knit and personable team of locals, all of whom are personally acquainted with the land. With only eight tents and a lounge-cum-dining area that spills out into the surrounding savannah, a stay at the camp is sure to be an intimate one.
