Did you know that Tanzania, famed for its great migration and Mount Kilimanjaro, is home to no less than 7 UNESCO World Heritage sites?
Naturally, there are the game rich areas: Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tarangire National Park and Selous Game Reserve as well as the world’s highest free standing mountain (Mount Kilimanjaro) found in the Kilimanjaro National Park. Historical Stone Town on the island of Zanzibar is fascinating, as are the Kondoa Rock-Art Sites scattered across the Rift Valley. Those with a fancy for history or architecture might wish to explore the Ruins of Kilwa Kisiwani and Ruins of Songo Mnara. These are the remnants of ancient port cities built by the Arab rulers during the 13th century, found on two adjacent islands off the coast about 200 km south of Dar es Salaam.
With all of these sites and attractions it might be difficult to make up your mind on where to stay and what to see. If there’s one place you must see, it’s the Serengeti National Park.
Tanzania is a beautiful country with a lot to offer and Wild Frontiers runs three camps in the Serengeti:
- Serengeti Wilderness Camp (open all year round)
- Ndutu Wilderness Camp (open December to March)
- Serengeti North Wilderness Camp (open July to October)
Today, we’d like to take you on a quick tour of our Serengeti Wilderness Camp.
Located in the heart of the central Serengeti, our tented camp is open year round and offers plenty of resident game in the area including big cats, elephant and buffalo herds. Seronera’s network of river valleys ensure year-round water supplies and support an incredibly rich wildlife population throughout the year. There is nothing better when on safari than to be lulled to sleep at night by the sounds of the bush. Our intimate camp is renowned for its delicious food, attentive service and homely evening campfires.
At a Glance:
- A short drive from the Seronera Airstrip, making our camp ideal for fly in safaris
- Eco-friendly tented camp
- 12 spacious en-suite tents with a bush shower and flush toilets
- Central dining and lounge area with well stocked bar
Activities in the Area:
- Game drives
- Walking safaris (these must be pre-booked)
- Bird watching
- Balloon flights
When to Go:
The camp is open all year round, with abundant resident game. At certain times of the year, the camp is right in the path of the wildebeest migration. We recommend combining your stay here with a few nights in either Serengeti North Wilderness Camp (July to October) or Ndutu Wilderness Camp (December to March) to get a full Serengeti experience. If you’d like an overview of the Serengeti migration, or have some unanswered questions, be sure to have a look at our other article, Your Guide to the Serengeti: Frequently Asked Questions.
- 8 hour drive from Arusha
- Fly from Arusha or Kilimanjaro to the Seronera Airstrip, about a 20 min game drive from camp. We recommend this as it will cut down on your travel time so you can enjoy more of the Serengeti.
