Chaka Camp, Serengeti

Chaka Camp is a semi-permanent mobile camp located in the Serengeti eco-system.  "Chaka" means "bush" in Swahili and this is what the Chaka Camp is offering; an authentic and intimate bush experience in the middle of remarkable areas of the Serengeti's pristine wilderness.  The Camp moves twice a year to ensure its guests are very well placed to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration. 

Chaka Camp - The Details

Chaka Camp is designed to be leightweight enough to move seasonally.  It is located in the Ndutu area from December through to the end of March and the Northern Serengeti from late May through to the end of October.

From December through March, the wildebeest migration moves in and out of the Ndutu area. Ndutu is located in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, just south of Serengeti National Park. Chaka Camp’s location provides easy access to prime game viewing areas around Lakes Ndutu and Masek. In addition to the almost two million wildebeest and zebra that move through the area each year, Ndutu is home to cheetah, lion, giraffe and hundreds of bird species. During February’s calving season, the wildebeest give birth to 8,000 babies a day. From late May through October, Chaka Camp is located in Northern Serengeti. The camp is close to the Mara River, allowing easy access to several river crossing points in the area. During this time of year, the wildebeest migration is crossing the Mara River back and forth from Tanzania to Kenya. River crossings are common with crocodiles, hippos and large cats scattered throughout the area.

Due to its mobile nature the 8 tents are relativly simple compared to some of the other top options in the area.  It does have flush toilets and safari bucket showers, as well as large private verandahs to take in the vast and endless views of the Serengeti eco-system.   There are seperate dining and lounge tents and a small bar and library.  

Whilst staying at Chaka you can enjoy game drives in open vechiles, romantic bush diners under the stars creating an authentic and intimate bush experience.
