the 'endless plain' of the serengeti

The Serengeti is often regarded as the most spectacular national park in the whole of Africa. Prides of golden-maned lions, warthogs, towering giraffes, elusive leopards, 1.5 million wildebeest and plenty more call this part of the world home. Each part of the Serengeti boasts its own unique landscape and an opportunity to see a magnificent amount of wildlife like no other. Expert guides paired with nights under canvas in exceptional properties, will enhance your adventure in the wilds of Africa.

Most importantly, these plains are home to the Great Migration, a truly wondrous sight that is often only dreamt about. Swarms of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras make their journey to the Maasai Mara and back, which is why it’s important to pick the right safari lodge for a front-row seat and the best chance of seeing the herds – this is where our travel experts come in. The Serengeti’s awe-inspiring sights will leave lasting memories for years to come. From completely tailor-made itineraries including walking safaris and luxury camps to multi-country private jet itineraries, we have all the inspiration and extensive knowledge to curate a once-in-a-lifetime experience in east Africa.

Where to stay in the serengeti?

Namiri Plains Serengeti

Namiri plains

A remote and intimate camp located in the Eastern Serengeti; luxury canvas style tents are tucked away but offer breathtaking views of the plains. Namiri translates from the Swahili word for ‘big cat’, making this camp is superb choice for locating cheetah. 

Spacious tents in sand and stone tones blend seamlessly into the bush, as well as a tented main area with lounge bar and dining space. The camp is the optimal comfort with warm African traditions and unobstructed game-viewing opportunities in a space that is private, allowing much of your adventure to be at your own pace. 

&Beyond Klein's Camp Serengeti

&Beyond Klein's camp

10 stone cottages make up this stunning lodge on the eastern  border of the national park, on a private conservancy leased from the local Maasai. There are no restrictions thanks to its location; night drives, guided game walks and more are all possible and its hillside position makes for breathtaking panoramic views from every angle. 

Klein’s Camp is a lovely spot to relax around the open fireplace or enjoy the cosy atmosphere at the al fresco bar. Wildlife experiences here are undisturbed due to being situated on a private reserve; the diverse herds can be admired from across the camp. 

Elewana serengeti migration camp

Step straight into the wild and onto the path of the Great Migration, as thousands of wildebeest cross the crocodile-infested Grumeti River. Surrounded by endless plains from your private veranda, it’s easy to be immersed in the savannah as the sun slithers on the horizon. Waking up to the sounds of birds, spying buffalo and watching lions go about their daily business, Elewana makes you feel even closer to nature than ever before.  

20 high quality, fully solar-powered tents with en-suite bathrooms, a pool to unwind after an early morning game drive and luxurious spa, provide a 5-star experience in the middle of nowhere. Opt for game drives in 4×4 land cruisers or walking safaris to learn more about the Serengeti wildlife and Maasai culture; all are accompanied by Elewana’s knowledgable guides, many of whom are from the Serengeti. It’s never long before you’re likely to spot the Big 5 or follow the Great Migration.
