Tanzania / Serengeti / Serengeti Under Canvas
Serengeti Under Canvas


Serengeti Under Canvas reaches far beyond the bounds of the traditional Tanzanian safari. The sumptuously luxurious tented, seasonal camps move around the Serengeti year round, bringing guests within range of Tanzania's Great Migration.

When the migration crosses over into Kenya, we keep our camps in the remote, beautiful corners of the Serengeti, renowned for their excellent resident game. Guests, hosted by experienced safari guides, witness the limitless Serengeti plains, game-rich and dotted with graceful acacia trees.

Using only private campsites, these migratory camps are entirely intimate and exclusive. Our romantic Hemingway-style tented wilderness camps proudly feature some of Tanzania's largest and most spacious mobile tents, each with double bed, ensuite bathroom, separate w.c., and romantic al fresco bucket shower (hot water delivered upon request).

Serengeti Under Canvas is the ultimate in luxury fly-camping. With a hint of Bedouin character, these tents boast custom made Indian rugs, crisp linens, sparkling crystal, and polished brass samovars and basins. Complete with personalised private butler service, delicious Pan African meals, and traditional bush dinners served under the stars. Each camp has its own expert safari guides, as well as fully-equipped safari vehicles. This is the soul of Africa - no mains electricity and no running water. The simplicity of camping blended with the relaxing solitude of the mighty Serengeti, far from civilisation.

The locations of these migratory camps are carefully plotted to coincide with the documented movements of the annual Great Migration as it traverses the Serengeti plains. Having secured some of the Serengeti's best semi-permanent campsites, we are able to bring our guests as close as possible to the migration or resident game. These campsites are all prebooked for our use, allowing us tremendous flexibility in moving our camps according to the expected migration movements. The aim is to position the camps within comfortable driving distance of the migration during exciting daily safaris. However, with nature being as unpredictable as it is, close proximity to the mass herds cannot always be guaranteed. Guests can tailormake a camping Under Canvas expedition in Northern Tanzania with their own private guide hosting them all the way.
