After breakfast, depart camp with a packed lunch and make your way towards the airstrip to begin your journey across the border into the Serengeti in Tanzania. You will fly to Migori near the border, where a driver and vehicle will meet you and drive you across the land border, stopping to complete immigration formalities. From there it’s a short distance to Tarime on the Tanzania side, to arrive in time for your flight into the Serengeti. Met on arrival by your guide and transfer to Ubuntu Migration Camp for the next three nights.
Known as a mobile camp, Ubuntu Migration Camp moves around the Serengeti several times each year to locate itself as close as possible to the predicted location of the Great Migration herds of up to 2 million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. As with all wildlife sightings, viewing of the migration cannot be guaranteed, but the camp aims to give you good chances of being in the right location at the right time. There are eight large tents, each with a veranda and en suite bathroom with a hot bucket shower. There is also a lounge tent and dining tent, although meals are served under the stars whenever possible.
Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives from Ubuntu Migration Camp, searching with your guide for the plentiful wildlife that is found in the Serengeti year-round. If your safari coincides with the timing of the Great Migration, you’ll also seek out these large herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle as they journey through the plains in search of fresh grazing.
