Serengeti in February - where to stay for a non-mobile camp?

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Kenya/Tanzania for February/early march 2013. For Serengeti, it seems the best area to see the Migration herds would be around Ndutu. What are some recommended permanent tented camps for us to consider? It seems in that area, it's mostly mobile camps.
We will have one traveler with us who is 76 and has some health issues. Due to that we need that extra bit of comfort of pernament camps that i don't think mobile camps will have (non-bucket showers, larger bathrooms with flush toilets, perhaps larger common spaces with more comfy couches to pass the time if he misses a game drive or two, wooden walkways instead of packed dirt over which he can trip).
For reference, we really enjoyed Migration Camp in norh, Tortilis Camp in Amboseli and Little governor's Camp. Looking for something similar.
I know booking at this point may also be a problem as it gets busy there. We can push this toward later March. If so, what areas/camps would be best bet to see the Migration?
thanks
