Nomad Serengeti Camp
4 Large Walk-In Safari Tents

The Serengeti Safari Camp shadows the wildebeest migration so that wherever the great herds are you're as close to them as you're likely to get. The tents are comfortable, light and simple, but equipped with everything you might need. The bathrooms are en-suite, with traditional safari style bucket showers, short drop toilets, and hot and cold water on demand. All you have to do is arrive in camp at the end of every exciting day, to hot showers, ice filled gin & tonics, and a roaring campfire. The days end with dinner, stars, and fireside safari bonhomie. The cuisine is of the highest standard with innovative menus using fresh fruit and vegetables. As well as candlelit dinners under the stars, a variety of bush breakfasts, sumptuous picnics and sundowners ensure that every day on safari is one that you'll never forget.

June - October; December - March

The best months for travelling to Tanzania are June through the end of October and then December through the end of March. And it is said that the annual wildebeest migration is the largest movement of animals on the planet. Both Serengeti and Loliondo Safari Camps are seasonally mobile and positioned to take full advantage of the incredible natural phenomenon of the Wildebeest migration. But even with the most exceptional and experienced guides, it can be difficult to predict the actions of over a million indecisive wildebeest. Which all adds to the adventure. From December to May, the herds graze on the southern plains. Around June, they cross the Grumeti River into the Western Corridor and from mid-July until November, they migrate further north towards Bologonga and the Mara River.

The Migration is truly one of the wonders of the animal world. A million and more animals playing out their lives in the Serengeti ecosystem, watched all the way by lions, hyenas and crocodiles looking for dinner. It is not a continually forward motion. They go forward, back and to the sides, they mill around, they split up, they join forces, they walk in a line, they spread out, they hang around. At an invisible yet instinctive signal, the animals converge and begin to move, six to ten abreast in winding columns several miles long. This mass movement has a following of carnivores, always ready to dispose of the weaklings. The river crossings happen at any time during this time of year, but are elusive, rapid and unforgettable experiences. The wildebeest are easily spooked by real or imagined threats. They fear crossing the river, as they have an inkling that something lurks there. Patient waiting near a herd by the river may only produce a puff of dust as they turn on their heels and run away. Or maybe the herd is just not ready to cross the river and they are milling around contentedly. But if everything is right then, there is utter and extraordinary chaos as the herds struggle to get to the other side of a major river filled with crocodiles.
Local Info

The Serengeti ecosystem extends beyond the eastern boundaries of the national park into the Loliondo Game Controlled Area, where Maasai tribes share the land with resident wildlife. We aim to integrate community conservation efforts with sustainable tourism, from landscape and culture to the preservation of its wild life. Although efforts include micro-loans, village scholarships and the building of clinics and schools, Nomad takes community conservation one step further and seeks to distribute the rewards of game guardianship to all members of the Maasai community and make them true custodians of their wild neighbours and ancient lands.
Owners & Hosts

Mkombe Mniko was raised on the shores of Lake Victoria and spent time in the Tanzanian People's Defence Force before becoming a teacher in Nairobi. His passion for Tanzania's wildlife soon brought him back to his home country, where Mkombe began guiding in the northern circuit and soon moved on to more challenging terrain. Over the years, his enthusiasm and intimate knowledge of the bush has made him one of the most sought-after guides in the country.

Chediel Mnzava spent his childhood on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. At an early age, his father instilled in him a love of nature and a passion for local bushlore. Chediel grew in the mountain's great forests and a career in the bush was inevitable. Walking safaris are his forte and a personal favourite.

Kennedy John was born and brought up in Arusha. His love of Tanzania's wilife places was inherited from his father, also a safari guide, and it was no wonder that Ken embarked on a bush career. He spent his early guiding years at Sand Rivers Selous where his favourite activities were walking safaris and fishing. He then moved up to the northern circuit where he continues to delight guests with his varied knowledge and infectious enthusiasm.

Emmanuel Njawa was born in western Tanzania and his early career was in the Department of Security and Intelligence. After 17 years came a need for a change of career and driven by a love of nature he decided to become a guide. He has since worked in the Selous, the Kilimanjaro area, and is now based mainly in the north having accumulated a vast wealth of bush knowledge. His often heard laugh is one of the great things about him.

"Nomad Safari Guides run the best tented mobile safaris in northern Tanzania, in exquisite locations, teeming with game but mercifully devoid of other people."
- Conde Nast Tatler Magazine
Serengeti Safari Camp is a traditional mobile tented camp, the location of which varies within the Serengeti as it shadows the migrating wildebeest herds.
Serengeti Safari Camp is set on the edge of the plains which at certain times of year plays host to the wildebeest migration and birthing, indisputably one of the greatest wildlife spectacles anywhere on earth. Serengeti means, in the Masai tongue, endless plains. Our camps use only the best guides and camp crews. Our guides always operate as far as possible off the beaten track. Depending upon each different area there are great walking opportunities and of course game drives, as the best chance to sample close-up animal action.
