Serengeti Under Canvas Review

This andBeyond mobile camp follows the migration beginning (usually in March) in 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. If you want to rough it in the bush, this is not your place, because you'll be pampered at every turn. But you're never cocooned away from the surrounding natural wonders. This is the most marvelous way to experience the migrations, the wonders of Serengeti and Africa. It's certainly not cheap, but it is definitely worth every penny.
