Fodor's Review

This mobile camp follows the migration (usually in March) from Serengeti's south near Lake Ntutu on a small bluff with splendid acacia trees overlooking a small river. The camp stays put for a couple of months at a time and then moves northward with the herds. Comfortable walk-in tents (Tanzania's largest mobile tents) with chandeliers that tinkle in the breeze (yes, there's even electricity) have en suite bucket showers, copper washbasins, a flush toilet, deep, comfortable beds with crisp linen and fluffy mohair blankets, Indian rugs, a dawn chorus of joyous birdsong, and an evening serenade of whooping hyenas with back vocals by softly calling lions. It's certainly not cheap but it's a delightful way to experience the migrations and the wonders of the Serengeti.
