This semi-permanent, luxury tented camp is located in the Serengeti, in northern Tanzania, one of the world’s most famous national parks. Ubuntu Camp moves to three different locations throughout the year as it follows the legendary wildebeest migration.
Ubuntu Camp is an extremely comfortable, traditional safari camp with a warm and relaxed ambience. Offering personalised service, superb guiding and exceptional game viewing, Ubuntu will appeal to adventurous travellers seeking an intimate and authentic East African safari experience that is great value and has unrivalled viewing of the Great Migration.
It provides seven spacious and tastefully appointed canvas tents furnished in classic safari style. Each one is designed for maximum comfort and privacy and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the views.
Witness dramatic river crossings and calving on thrilling game drives, spend a lazy afternoon by the pool or watch game wander on the grassy plains in the comfort of your tent. Visits to local villages and a romantic hot air balloon safari can also be arranged. A picnic in the bush is a must.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Serengeti into a greater Tanzania holiday.
