Serengeti Safari Camp
Serengeti Safari Camp is an authentic seasonally mobile camp which moves throughout the Serengeti National Park tracking the great wildebeest migration, taking advantage of its mobility to be located the best area as the seasons change. From December to March the camp is usually situated in the south, in April and May it goes west towards Lake Victoria, and from June moves north to be close to the border with Kenya. Children from eight years are welcome.
Accommodation & Facilities
The camp is made up of six tastefully furnished tents, which are used as a base whilst you venture out on game drives. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom including a traditional bucket shower and a flushing chemical loo. The family tent comprises two full size en-suite tents, one of which has a king-size bed and the other twin beds, joined by a tented lounge area. Meals are shared either under the stars or in the dining tent. As it is a small camp, the staff are on hand to look after your every need.
Eating & Sleeping
For maximum flexibility families are encouraged to book a private vehicle in which case children can have separate meal times to suit. The chef is happy to discuss the children’s preference on arrival and provide accordingly. There is a children’s menu featuring nursery favourites such as cauliflower cheese, pizza, sausages and mash etc. Specific dietary requirements can be accommodated with prior warning.
There are no formal childcare facilities so parents must be responsible for their children at all times.
Wildlife & Activities
Huge open plains and grass waving in the wind is how many people think of African safaris. This description fits the majority of the Serengeti well. It is rightly famous for both its resident wildlife population, which includes large numbers of predators, as well as the annual wildebeest and zebra migration which travels clockwise through the Serengeti.
Specifically for children …
Although Serengeti Safari Camp warmly welcomes children from eight years, the camp does not offer specific activities for children. That said, the guides are adept at keeping children engaged and making the bush exciting and fun, with activities to suit interests and attention spans.
