Ubuntu Camp is an intimate, seasonal camp that moves with the Great Wildebeest Migration across the Serengeti to optimize the best wildlife experiences throughout the year. Like its sister camp Olakira, it is designed to give guests an authentic African bush experience amid down-to-earth, hospitable comfort.

Property Details

Ubuntu Camp is a traditional canvas safari bushcamp with a true wilderness feel. Balancing authenticity with indulgent comfort, Ubuntu’s eight under-canvas tents are simple rooms of contentment. Each contains a sturdy bed, canvas bedside tables, a small writing desk, and a set of directors’ chairs, the perfect perches from which to watch the world of the Serengeti go by. En-suite bathrooms, separated from the bedroom by canvas curtains, boast washing basins with running water, flushing toilets, and ‘pukka’ safari bucket showers, efficiently filled upon request.

Ubuntu Camp is run by an excellent team of friendly Tanzanians, each of whom impart their generous hospitality, culinary prowess, and relaxed manner to the guest experience. The main canvas-floored communal tent spills into the surrounding wilderness, offering up never-ending views of the African horizon and a soothing ambience for enjoying board games and choice beverages while connecting with the surrounding nature. Every evening, guests congregate around the crackling fire pit for a bit of socialization and reflection on the day’s adventures, afterward heading into the Africa-infused dining room for dinner under the Serengeti stars. Meals at Ubuntu Camp are imaginative and substantial, from lavish lunch buffets full of fresh produce to multi-course supper feasts, a surprising treat in the middle of the wilderness.

Ubuntu Camp is a mobile luxury camp that moves with the Great Migration through the Serengeti. From late July to October, the camp sits in the Northern Serengeti near the Mara River and presents dramatic game drive encounters with the region’s rich wildlife, from the hippo and crocodile filled waters to the big cats, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, and elephants of the plains and woodlands. Once the herds begin to migrate, so does Ubuntu, closing down in November to relocate to the southern Ngorongoro Conservation Area by December. During this time, guests have the opportunity to set out on walking safaris and cultural visits with national park rangers to experience the African bush more intimately. The camp’s final stop is within the Western Corridor where it is perfectly located to catch the wildebeest herds on their journey across the Grumeti River in May and June. Given this migratory schedule, all of Ubuntu’s guides spend 11 months out of the year in the wilderness and have a wealth of knowledge, passed on from generation to generation, to contribute to the exclusive Ubuntu safari experience.
