GUIDE ON SERENGETI SAFARI CAMP (NOMAD) IN TANZANIA
Serengeti Safari Camp is a superlative mobile tented camp designed for an Africa tour to follow great herds of wildebeest as they trek thousands of miles on their annual Great Migration across the mighty Serengeti plains of Tanzania’s National Park, in search of water and grazing. With the intent of tracking the migration, the camp owners -- Nomad were pioneers in setting the structure of mobile camp movement in Serengeti National Park.
Changing location every few months, the mobile camp follows over a million wildebeests for hundreds of miles along their centuries old route across endless plains, breeding grounds, birthing enclaves and hazardous river crossings, giving exclusive views of life in the raw as predatory cats pick off the weak and careless while giant crocodiles lie in ambush on river banks (see best time to visit Serengeti). Much imitated, but unsurpassed for the highest standards of service and expertise, Serengeti Safari Camp provides an outstanding base for your Africa holidays.
Combining an authentic AfricanMecca wilderness safari experience with the thoughtful comfort of a remote camp, this can truly be described as a low environmental discerning safari camp: It is small, exclusive, far from the usual tourist trail and intended to satisfy the individual objectives of every client, with services of an unrivalled safari guide and the camp’s exemplary hospitality.

Accommodation At Serengeti Safari CampSerengeti Safari Camp has only 6 large traditional safari style mixed canvas tarp tents, each with a shaded outdoor sitting area, walk-in tent room, lounge and dining area, curtained dressing space and en suite bathroom featuring eco-flush toilets, bucket showers and “Out of Africa” personal service with hot and cold water brought to your tent. A turn-down service includes hot water bottles for your bed in cold weather or inspect spray if required, before settling down for the night behind mosquito proof windows and doors.
Children of 8 years and more are welcome in camp, but only 12 years and over may join in guided and guarded safari walks. Central to the accommodation, a large dining tent and separate bar with lounge and library offer chances to swap yarns with other couples or groups. Here is the place to charge electrical equipment, although, regrettably, hair-dryers require too much power-driven current to be practicable in this specialized environment.
For the same reason, the daily laundry service uses coal irons just as they did on Serengeti tours a hundred years ago. Treading lightly in the hoof prints of the migrating herds, it offers maximum exposure to the wonders of a Tanzania vacation with AfricanMecca consistent with personal safety, and with minimal impact on this timeless but sensitive environment.
Safari At Serengeti Safari CampAt Serengeti Safari Camp, more than any other, you go at your own speed and indulge your own interests. You do not have to share transport or a guide. This means that AfricanMecca guests are free to follow the migration if your interest in Africa travel centres on gut-wrenching photography of chase and kill. Your knowledgeable personal guide will remain with you throughout your Serengeti Safari Camp safari with your own private 4x4.
The guide is in touch by radio with other trackers to share fauna intelligence so that you get peak game-viewing experiences on this journey of a life-time. In the morning, you can marvel at the vast ocean of savannah, dotted with hundreds of thousands of grazing wildebeests looking like ants swarming into the distance. You can look for families of lion, elephant, or giraffe as well as jackals and hyena on the grasslands.
Or you can watch the fearful river crossings, where herd animals hesitate on the brink before being pushed forward down cliffs, and into the water by the heaving masses behind. Can you bear to watch as crocodile glide out to fasten their gaping jaws on the unfortunate outriders? In the late afternoon, you can ask your guide to show you birds, insects or the specialized flora of the savannah.
He may suggest looking for wildlife returning to water holes, shadowed by nocturnal predators. He can show you many fascinating creatures that emerge at the initiation of twilight, the graceful smaller cats or the lucky sighting of other small nocturnal mammals, such as the armored, ant-eating pangolin which curls itself into a scale-protected ball at the first threat of danger. At Serengeti Safari Camp, everyone works together to make your Tanzania safari dreams come true.
Dining At Serengeti Safari CampThe food alone would qualify Serengeti Safari Camp as a luxury venue. Prepared by an excellent trained Tanzanian chef, it combines the highest quality local produce with elegant simplicity of presentation. Typically, morning tea is followed by an early game-viewing drive in your own dedicated 4x4 vehicle. But the entire Serengeti trip is designed to meet your needs, so you decide what to do and when, whether to drive out early taking breakfast with you for an extended morning, tracking the migration (see map), or to take a full, sustaining breakfast in camp followed by a guided bush walk.
Lunch usually on this part of your Tanzania safari tour includes a choice of salad, meat, poultry or fish, although vegetarian and other diets are provided on request with great attention to detail that is amazing in view of the limitations of this wilderness camp’s existence.
A well-stocked bush bar provides a choice of fine wines, beers, fruit juice, soft drinks and spirits, whilst hot drinks include the finest Tanzanian tea and coffee, with herb teas and hot chocolate as required. An afternoon siesta followed by light tea, sets you up for your second tour of the day.
A traditional African safari campfire is a focal point for sundowners for AfricanMecca guests as the sun sets in glorious technicolor over the plains. Later in the evening, mouth-watering food is prepared bush-kitchen style, with warm soups, freshly baked breads grilled or roasted meats and vegetables served in style in well-presented comfort in an open dining tent.
