Northern Serengeti

Wayo Kogatende Green Camp

Overview

Classic canvas

Wayo’s Kogatende Green Camp is located on the edge of the Northern Serengeti wilderness zone, set up on a ridge under large evergreen trees, overlooking a vast swath of this iconic landscape.

There are 10 square en-suite tents, each of which can be set up as double, twin or triple for families with simple luxuries like comfy beds, crisp linens, and classic bucket bush showers. The classic central mess tent has lounge chairs and a small library so you can relax in complete comfort during the day. Delicious home-cooked meals are usually in a sociable communal style but private dining can be arranged for a special occasion.

The camp is open from July until the end of November when the migration of millions of wildebeest is in the Northern Serengeti. Located 20km from the Mara River, it is a spot to witness the iconic river crossings.

Community & Culture

Wayo Africa strongly believes in training and employing Tanzanian people in key positions and almost all personnel at camp are Tanzanian. One of the main ways they support this is with their well-regarded guide training facility.

All the meals served use ingredients purchased from local markets, local shops and farms putting money back into local communities.

Footprint

"Wayo" means footprint in Swahili, embodying an ethos of treading lightly as well as being out discovering Africa and meeting its people on foot.

Wayo's Green Camps have an incredibly light footprint operating in the most environmentally sustainable manner possible. The camp is solar powered and waste in the camp is minimised by preparing part of the meals in Arusha. There is no plastic in camp and waste is recycled or turned into compost for local farms and gardens. They are constantly aiming to improve operations and influence and educate others around us to do the same.
