Nomad are one of the longest running safari companies in Tanzania with camps and lodges in every corner of the country. We love the Nomad Serengeti Safari Camp as it is a mobile camp following the migration inside the Serengeti National Park, and with some excellent guiding. Out of all the mobile operators Nomad earns extra respect for following the migration with every move, not just in peak tourist season.
Serengeti Safari is a mobile camp moving seasonally depending on where the migration herds are. The camp ‘leap frogs’ its sister camp to new locations so there is always one camp open allowing guests to enjoy the migration. They always remain ahead of the game (literally). The camp is mobile, however, never actually moves with clients in the camp! The Nomad Serengeti Safari Camp always positions itself near an airstrip; so it is very easy to combine the Serengeti with other areas in northern Tanzania. Typically a 3 or 4 night stay in the camp offers the optimum amount of time in the Serengeti. For those looking for a luxurious, rustic Tanzanian safari holiday experience, this place takes a lot of beating.
The camp consists of two communal tents in the centre of the camp, with a mess tent where all meals are served and another tent where there is a relaxed ‘camping bar’ and comfortable chairs to enjoy a drink before supper or perhaps by the fire.
The 8 meru style tents are equally spread out either side of the communal area with views onto the Serengeti
. The tented rooms are en suite with a bathroom area at the rear of the tent with flush loo and bucket shower. The tents are very comfortable and it’s hard to really call this camping!
The main activity in the Serengeti is game driving and Nomad Serengeti Safari Camp offers private game drives in closed sided vehicles with excellent guides. Whether your interest is in the large mammalian wildlife, birds or insects, you can be sure your guide will be able to answer your every question.
One of the biggest choices to make when heading on safari in the Serengeti is choosing what type of camp would suit you best. There are some big differences between permanent lodges comapred to your mobile camps. The permanent lodges don't move throughout the year and have more facilities such as swimming/plunge pools. This makes them perfect for families with children who enjoy spending the middle of the day splashing around in the cool water, yet they do come at a much higher price.
On the other hand, mobile camps are what encapsulates the Serengeti. Permanent lodges can be found all over Africa, but a camp that moves with the Wildebeest migration is only found in Tanzania, and we love them! Apart from being great value for money, their movements ensure you are in the best possible position to view the migration throughout the year. Mobile camps allow you to really immerse yourself in nature and give you that authentic 'Out of Africa' feel which is what draws so many visitors to East Africa.
Combining Nomad's camps across Tanzania woudl make for an excellent and unforgettable safari experience. If you are sticking to a typical Northern circuit then Nomad's Entamanu
is perfect for a couple of days by the Ngorongoro Crater. If however the wild and untamed parks of Selous and Ruaha are more appealing than the busy Crater, Sand Rivers
is one of the best properties and most luxurious lodges in the Selous and Kigelia
in Ruaha offers a very rustic and authentic bush experience. With Nomad you can really experience the best of both worlds on safari!
