Nomad's Serengeti Safari Camp moves into Northern Serengeti in time for Mara River Crossings between late July and October

Guide Price: From: $450 To: $740

Nomad's Serengeti Mara Safaril camp is perfectly located for when the wildebeest head towards Kenya's Maasai Mara, having already run the gauntlet of the Grumeti River in the western corridor.  This involves them tangling with the crocs of the Serengeti's own portion of the Mara River, a world away from life on the Kenya side of the international border. 

The migration heads north as the dry season progresses, so from mid / late July through to early November, there are huge concentrations of animals in an area that spans the Maasai Mara in Kenya and the far northern section of the Serengeti National Park. 

This area has until the past few years been out of reach of most permanent safari camps in the Serengeti, however there are now one or two options springing up in this region and they are very well worth considering, at almost any time of year. Nomad's Northern Serengeti Camp locates in either the north western or north eastern Serengeti as conditions dictate, close to the Mara or Bologonja rivers respectively. It's in these areas that the action is likely to be at its best as the wildebeest cross backwards and forwards between Kenya and Tanzania in response to local rain showers, the resulting fresh grass (and only they know what else).

This luxury mobile safari camp caters for up to 16 guests and moves seasonally around the Serengeti ecosystem shadowing the wildebeest herds as best it can, with one of Nomad Tanzania's excellent private vehicle and safari guides as standard. This means you have full flexibility in planning your safari activities with your guide to suit yourselves. As well as providing first class food in camp, Nomad supply lavish picnics to be taken on longer game drives, so you can choose to stay out all day on some occasions and return to camp for a lazy lunch and siesta on others.  The crew of almost 16 Tanzanians who run the operation are friendly and efficient and look after your every need down to the smallest detail. In cold months you'll even find a hot water bottle in your bed when you turn in.

When you stay at one of Nomad's Serengeti Safari Camps you get one of the excellent guides and a private vehicle throughout your stay.  The camps are mainly about catching the migration, so game viewing by vehicle (they have excellent roof hatches and alround visibilty) is the mainstay here.  Expect to be able to discuss your game viewing with your guide as you go along, reacting to what you see and how you feel.

That evening, after a gin-and-tonic by the campfire, we ate outside at a table decked with hurricane lamps and watched stars fall out of an ink-black sky.

Joanna Eede - The Daily Beast July 2013. On walking in the Serengeti with Natural High

We have now returned from our wonderful holiday in Tanzania and would like to thank Natural High Safaris for the excellent organization of this safari. Everything worked like a treat, there were always people to meet us on arrival in each stop and everything that we had read and been told about at each place, was as described.

C & L H Feb 2010

The experience of seeing the animals of Tanzania in situ was a gift beyond price. We were immersed in an abundance and diversity of wildlife, mingling and living in a sustainable balance.. Nothing could have prepared me for my response. Words like overwhelming, numinous, awesome came to mind.

Serengeti National Park - the North

The far north of the Serengeti National Park is where you'll find the wildebeest migration between August and October. The Mara River - bristling with crocs - divides this wild part of the Serengeti from the Masai Mara in Kenya and it's here that you'll find the herds when the southern plains get too dry. Read more?
