Ubuntu in the North (July-October)

From late-July to October Ubuntu Camp is surrounded by untouched wilderness in the Northern Serengeti.

While daily game drives regularly stop at the Mara River to observe the dramatic crossings across waters populated by hippo and crocodile, the area offers plenty of biodiversity.

The Northern Serengeti plains have large herds of plains game throughout the year, with lion and cheetah forever lurking in the grasslands; ever vigilant for easy prey. In the lush woodland that thrives alongside the Mara River you’ll find herds of elephant and shy leopard, as well as astounding birdlife: over 500 species can found here throughout the year.

Ubuntu in the South (December-March)

As they’ve done for millennia, the herds will eventually answer the call of the migration and head for the southern Serengeti’s endless grasslands; the perfect place to calve, graze and rest. They won’t be left alone here though: lion and cheetah will follow in their wake to claim their share of the spoils.

And so Ubuntu Camp will follow: in November the camp is closed to visitors as Ubuntu is dismantled and moved to the southern Ngorongoro Conservancy Area.

Ubuntu in the West (May- July)

In May, Ubuntu Camp moves to the area known as the Western Corridor, setting up camp near Handajega which is between the Nyakoroma Hills and the border of the Serengeti. The camp is in a great location to catch the wildebeest migration crossing the Grumeti River.

Short Overview

Ubuntu Camp is a small, seasonal camp located in the Serengeti National Park. It moves seasonally to optimise the chance of witnessing the Serengeti Wildebeest Migration and therefore ensuring fantastic game viewing at all times.

The camp itself is an intimate, traditional canvas safari camp designed to give you as much of a wild and authentic Serengeti safari experience as it is a luxury and comfortable experience. A close-knit team of warm Tanzanians ensure that hospitality, great food and a wonderfully relaxed environment remains the essence of Ubuntu Camp.
