GUIDE ON EHLANE PLAINS CAMP IN SERENGETI
In October and November, the eastern section of Serengeti National Park becomes an adventure traveler’s dream come true. Immense herds of wildebeests traverse the area as part of the Great Migration’s (best time to visit), a continuous migratory journey in which the animals search for prime grazing and water sources. This part of the park is little visited, so you feel connected to nature and Serengeti’s intense beauty.
Located in the Soit le Motonyi region of Serengeti, Ehlane Plains Camp offers safari-goers an excellent mid-range accommodation from which to explore a vast and stunning landscape. Lions, leopards, hyenas, cheetahs and other ferocious hunters are constantly prowling for a tasty meal. These sly carnivores may eye one of the many wildebeests, zebras, warthogs and other small herbivores like impalas, gazelles that mingle with elephants, giraffes, buffaloes and many diverse mammals.
Accommodation At Ehlane Plains CampChoose from eight guest tents that provide both the necessary comforts and impressive views of savannah plains and acacia woodlands. Each tent features a relaxing lounge area with couch, coffee table, writing desk and coffee maker. A king-size bed with bedside tables and lamps is covered with delicate netting, and handmade cupboards provide adequate storage for your belongings. The ensuite bathroom features a vanity with wash basin, shower and flush toilet. The floors inside the tent are natural wood, and rugs help keep your feet warm on chilly nights. You have a sense of limitless nature here, thanks to the zip-open walls covered with netting curtains and the private balcony with safari chairs. Stone pavers surround the tent exterior.
Ehlane Plains Camp gives guests a unique holiday experience with two “star dome” tents that allow you to drift off to sleep gazing at the African sky. You will be thrilled and delighted as you recline on cushions and look out the open roof to see an infinite number of stars twinkling in the ebony black night. One family tent with inter-connected tents ample provides space for parents and children who visit this part of Tanzania for their family safari vacation. Each of these tents is designed with connected private lounges, with cushions for seating. The family tents comfortably accommodate up to five people. Ehlane Plains provides satellite Wi-Fi for those who need to stay in touch with the modern world during their exploration of the backcountry. Electricity is provided via solar and generator, and battery charging stations are available for your small devices. Ehlane Plains Camp closes in April and May.
Safari At Ehlane Plains CampResident wildlife viewing at Ehlane Plains Camp is year-round; though, it is best to visit it when the wildebeest migration is in eastern Serengeti. Seeing Tanzania’s wildlife in their natural environment is a heartwarming and thrilling experience, and morning and evening game drives are the best ways to see the great diversity that you ideally hope to see on your trip.
We also recommend that you take an early-morning guided safari walk to observe the small details of the ecosystem. Your guide shows you animal tracks, insects, flora and much more. This is also a good opportunity to take macro photographs of the tiny denizens and delicate vegetation. You may also be able to safely get close to some of the wildlife under the watchful eye of your guide.
Dining At Ehlane Plains CampThe dining and lounge areas are in the main tent, and water is gathered from wells in the national park. Enjoy your meals at the camp or treat yourself to a bush breakfast or picnic during your game viewing tour, as well as dinner in the bush amidst the home grounds of iconic African species. The chef skillfully prepares picnic lunches, dishes with homemade flavors, baked goods – all in the wildest parts of Tanzania! Fresh ingredients are sourced daily, and the chef is happy to accommodate any special requests with advance notice.
