Serengeti Under Canvas

Overview

Follow the Great Migration

Serengeti Under Canvas is an intimate camp that moves its location five times every year - anticipating the pathway of the Great Migration and positioning itself strategically in the perfect spot for prime game viewing.

This mobile camp comprises just nine safari tents - taking camping to a whole new level with private butler service, chandeliers, silverware and crystal. All tents have beautiful ensuite bathrooms with flush toilets, outdoor heated bucket showers and sumptuous beds with fluffy duvets.

Guest areas include an inviting lounge and dining tent and a roaring campfire under the stars. All ages are welcome and a Wildchild programme is available with fun, interactive activities. Join the famous wildebeest migration as special guests of sustainable safari trailblazers, &Beyond.
