NORTHERN SERENGETI camp
The camp is a semi-mobile camp - designed to be lightweight enough to move seasonally, off-the-grid and relies on a custom built solar system for its power.
Room fabrics are handwoven African designs, and the camp's furniture was commissioned and crafted by artisans in Arusha, Tanzania.A perfect place to return to after an exhilarating day of game drives, the camp blends an authentic bush experience with delicious food and a comfortable atmosphere. Relax on your tent's verandah and learn to expect the unexpected as you watch life in the Serengeti unfold.
Accommodation includes 5 double en-suite tents,3 family en-suite tents accommodating up to 2 adults and 2 children and a private, shaded verandah overlooking the Serengeti ecosystem.
Solar-power is available with UK plug points in the dining tent and bedrooms.
Chaka Camp, designed to be lightweight enough to move seasonally, is located in the Ndutu area from December through March. The camp relocates to Western Serengeti from May through June, and again to Northern Serengeti from July through November.
From December through March, the wildebeest migration moves in and out of the Ndutu area. Ndutu is located in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, just south of Serengeti National Park. Chaka Camp’s location provides easy access to prime game viewing areas around Lakes Ndutu and Masek. In addition to the almost two million wildebeest and zebra that move through the area each year, Ndutu is home to cheetah, lion, giraffe and hundreds of bird species. During February’s calving season, the wildebeest give birth to 8,000 babies a day.
From May through June, Chaka Camp relocates to Western Serengeti. The wildebeest migration is generally in this area during this time, and crossings over the Grumeti River are sometimes seen in this area. Access to Central Serengeti is also possible from this area as the drive is only 2 hours.
From July through November, Chaka Camp is located in Northern Serengeti. The camp is close to the Mara River, allowing easy access to several river crossing points in the area. During this time of year, the wildebeest migration is crossing the Mara River back and forth from Tanzania to Kenya. River crossings are common with crocodiles, hippos and large cats scattered throughout the area.
Full day game drives along the Mara river and surrounding the large migration!
