Serengeti Walking Camps are lightweight private camps set in wilderness areas far from the busy tourist areas. These camps are designed to move catering for up to 6 days of walking in an area. Camp tents are relatively small 2.5m x 2.5m dome tents but with comfortable foam mattresses are covered with 100% linen bedding. Meals are eaten under the stars or in the shade of of a tree. A small mess tent is available in the event of bad weather. All meals are 3-course sit down affairs, prepared by the camp chef and served by waiters. All walking camps are private and groups and therefore never mixed.

Description

Kogatende Serengeti walking camp

From June-July until the end of November, you can enjoy walking safaris in Northern Serengeti to coincide with the Wildebeest in the area. The camp’s location may move depending on the location of wildlife. Walks take place in the wilderness zone in the Northwestern section of the Kogatende area. Here, gentle sloping hills descend to the Mara River and are ideal walking. Walks are normally across savanna grasslands, surrounded by evergreen forest. Visibility is excellent and animals can be seen from afar. From June until November, the grass is short, attracting a large amount of grazing animals. Walking in this area is almost always among large groups of animals. The area is large enough to comfortably walk for 6 days. The camp moves every 2 nights so guests will only stay in one campsite for a maximum of 2 nights.

Central Serengeti walking camp

Walking in this area is from December until the end of June when the migration moves South. The area is characterized by large rocky outcrops on the top of hills and interesting river and drainage systems. The walks and camp move within this area to provide a variety of different walking experiences. Walking along the drainage systems is amongst trees. The vegetation here is generally thicker, making for ‘interesting’ walks. Up close and last-minute animal encounters are likely. Walking amongst rocky outcrops is across open plains, although exploring the rock kopjes is always interesting.

Southern Serengeti walking camp

Walking in this area takes place from December until the end of March when the Wildebeest migration is in the area. Camp is located at the edge of the Simiyu woodlands on Serengeti’s short grass plains. Walks take place across open plains, along drainage areas and streams, between large rocky areas. Walks also climb the rock kopjes and take place the woodlands West of camp.

Between December and March, the plains are filled with wildebeest and other migrating animals. The animals continually move between the plains and the woodlands which is where the walks take place. The probability of encountering lion and hyena is high, and will be viewed from safe distance. This is a Rhino zone here. Walks avoid dangerous animals, but there are opportunities to view these animals from a distance. This area is open savanna woodland, making it easier to spot dangerous animals in advance. Walks and camps around within this area to provide very different walking experiences.
