The Serengeti Under Canvas camps are extremely well run and each tent has beautiful design, with total comfort in mind. This is still bush camping (bucket showers), but with the flamboyant extras that &Beyond add to all of their properties, such as flush loos and chandeliers; this is mobile camping at its very finest. And the extras don’t stop here....with each tent being allocated a private butler. The camps have supreme locations throughout the year for best access to the migration; even covering the June period out in the west which some companies fail to cover. It is pricey, but when you're there you can really see where the money has gone!
Serengeti Under Canvas - The Details
Serengeti Under Canvas is a luxury mobile tented camp in the Serengeti National Park in the north of Tanzania which moves location in order to track the wildebeest migration through out the year. The camp moves between Ndutu, Grumeti, Seronera and Kogatende meaning that at any time of the year this camp will be in the best location for game viewing. The camp is always set up within 30 minutes of a bush airstrip making it accessible from Arusha or Manyara taking approximately 2 hours flight on a light aircraft depending on location.
Serengeti Under Canvas has 8 luxury ensuite tents and a main ‘mess tent’ where guests can enjoy some of the finest bush cooking in the Serengeti. Serengeti Under Canvas is owned by &Beyond who have some of the most luxurious properties in Tanzania, this quality is also very evident in these camps too, making it the most luxurious mobile camp in the Serengeti national park.
The en-suite tents are to very high standard; this does not feel like camping! Each tent at Serengeti Under Canvas has a chandelier hanging above the large and extremely comfortable beds which can be arranged as a twin or double. The bathroom at the rear of the tent is a standard toilet and an open air bucket shower which has a capacity of 30 litres of hot water. (larger than the other mobile camps)
The main area is located around the mess tent where you will have your meals and the adjacent tent which acts as the lounge area with comfortable sofas, antiques and books which is ideal place to relax after lunch and chat to your guides before heading out on safari into the Serengeti National Park.
