Due to its migration during the year, the camp offers access to the finest areas in the Serengeti for wildlife viewing, perfectly showcased on twice-daily game drives. Lion, cheetah, leopard, wildebeest and hyena can be spotted in both locations, with other species – including Nile crocodile, elephant and bat-eared fox – specific to where the camp is in the Serengeti.
The movement of the camp follows the famed Great Migration, a cycle during which millions of wildebeest, gazelles and zebra (pursued by their predators) embark on a 1,000-kilometre circuit in search of water. When in the north, the camp offers the opportunity to sight this breathtaking spectacle, watching as thousands of animals cross the rivers. The southerly location showcases a different side to the migration: calving season, when an estimated 500,000 calves are born during a three-week window in February, also drawing many predators to the area.
Culture & History
When the camp is in the northern Serengeti between June and November, there is the option to visit several villages and communities located on the outskirts of the national park. Learn more about the culture and way of life of the local Kuria people as you spend a morning visiting a school or bustling marketplace.
