Explore the Serengeti
with a simple mobile camp

Civilised camping safaris are proof that less can be more. Great guiding, a private vehicle and a simple comfortable camp far from the crowds.


How to explore the Serengeti with a light mobile camp

Camping safaris of this type are the purest form of safari and one of our favourite safari experiences – a great guide, a private vehicle, access to the best wildlife areas and a wonderfully comfortable camp all to yourselves.

Like camping… only less so…This style of camping is a clear endorsement of the notion that the simplest solutions can be often the best. Spacious, but lightweight safari tents allow for comfort, mobility and minimal impact (no noisy generators or other guests), proper mattresses with sheets and duvets ensure a good night’s sleep.

Throughout your time in the bush you will be amazed by the quality of meals the camp crew cook up – eggs & bacon for breakfast and three course meals under the stars – all cooked in the mobile camp kitchen. In short, don’t confuse this way of camping with the sort of camping that involves hard work, tears and arguments about who does the washing up.

THIS IS ABOUTComfort not luxury

This type of camp is ideal if you’re the sort of person who subscribes to the comfort not luxury approach, although we would argue that the luxury in this case is in the experience.

Very simply what you get here is the chance to be away from large crowds of other people at a price that would normally only allow for a lodge-based safari with its attendant traffic and queues for the buffet – or a public camp site surrounded by hordes of others. As you can probably tell, we think this is a pretty good way to do things.

This type of safari in the Serengeti can be organised all year round with the location of camp being carefully planned to get you into the action and away from the crowds. In the dry season of July to October, expect the camp to be pitched in the far north of the park giving access on foot to the spectacle of the river crossings.

In the earlier part of the year in the shoulder months of March and April, a beautiful time to be in the central areas of the Serengeti with access into the wilderness zones and allows walking safaris from camp. The area turns a vibrant green at this time of year and one of our favourite places on the planet. This time also has the advantage of low season prices but equally amazing wildlife.

“After three days on foot in the Serengeti, the less-is-more formula Natural High advocates makes complete sense. Luxury lies in stripping away the conscious thought that controls our busy lives, and exposing the sensory, instinctive self to the scents and sounds of the wild”
– Joanna Eede – The Daily Beast

Serengeti Safaris beyond the obvious

As well as accessing the headline acts like the seeing the wildebeest cross the Mara River, camping safaris can be used to access some of the best, and often underused, parts of northern Tanzania that most people overlook from remote areas of the Maasai Steppe to the eastern edges of the Serengeti to name just a couple.

We can also design camping itineraries to take in wilderness areas where you can walk. Ensuring you can get out of the vehicle is one of the objectives of using a camp like this. Combining with the odd small safari lodge makes for an outstanding expedition through the best of Northern Tanzania.
