Migration Camp is a luxury Permanent Lodge owned by the Elewana chain located in the North Central area of the Serengeti. We really like the actual property but the one main issue is the location. Yes it is good for the migration around the early July time but the herds move through here so fast that it’s very easy to miss them. There is good resident game here but as this area of the Serengeti is quite shrubby and wooded- spotting them can be troublesome. Depending on the time of the year we would either be more inclined with a Northern Camp in the Kogatende area or something in the South or West.
Serengeti Migration Camp - The Facts
This camp is located in the rocky outcrops of north central Serengeti National Park best accessed by light aircraft from Lobo Airstrip which has schedule flights daily from Arusha. It is also possible to stay at Migration Camp as park of the ‘sky safari pakage’.
Twenty lavish and spacious tents on wooden decks with either king or twin beds, comfortable leather armchairs, coffee and writing tables. The tents are en-suite with showers and double vanities, surrounded by a verandah with rocking chairs.
The main area of the lodge is very comfortable with large leather chairs and views onto the Serengeti. There is a swimming pool and the lodge is child friendly
The best time to visit Migration Camp is July time when the migration herds are pushing up to the North of the Serengeti. It is also possible to sometimes see the herds here pushing south here in November time. There are really only these two windows to actually see the Migration on a Tanzanian safari
here. The main activity here is Serengeti safari
game driving in shared vehicles.
