Nomad Serengeti Camp

Nomad Serengeti Camp is a classic mobile tented camp designed to resemble the pioneering safari camps of old. It shifts location on a regular basis in order to track the Serengeti's great migration.

Nomad Serengeti Camp is a classic mobile bush camp that changes location almost monthly as it follows the course of the wildebeest migration through the Serengeti. It was one of the first such camps to open in the Serengeti, and remains one of the best, offering the excellent service that you would expect from a Nomad camp as well as the convenience and game-viewing opportunities offered by a mobile bush camp.

In style and character, Nomad Serengeti Camp attempts to evoke the classic pioneering safari camps of old. Being a mobile camp, it doesn't offer the same quality of facilities as a fixed camp, but it’s still very comfortable. The guest tents and mess area are beautifully appointed with antique-style furnishings. The camp has a quality that sets it apart from other bush camps, which offer a more back-to-basics approach.

It’s the game-viewing experience, however, and not the accommodation that makes Nomad Serengeti Camp stand out. Nomad have a reputation as one of East Africa’s best safari operators, whose camps typically employ excellent safari guides. Nomad Serengeti Camp is no exception. On arrival, you will be allocated a private guide and vehicle who will accompany you throughout your stay—there’s no need to share a vehicle with other guests unless you want to. This gives you a great deal of flexibility in how you approach game-viewing activities, and means you aren’t tied to fixed schedules.

Nomad Serengeti Camp is open throughout the year. Nomad also run another safari camp in the Serengeti, the more recently opened Nomad Lamai Camp.

Accommodation

There are only six tents at Nomad Serengeti Camp, giving the camp a very personal feel. The tents are large Meru-style safari tents, simply but comfortably furnished with wrought-iron beds, dark wooden furniture, and ample storage space. They feature en-suite bathrooms with “eco-flush” loos and bucket showers (hot water on demand).

Dining

There are two mess tents, comprising lounge/bar and dining area. The dining tent sits apart from the guest tents, and is dominated by a long communal dining table, where meals are taken each day. At night, when the tent is lit by lantern and candlelight, the atmosphere is wonderful—the perfect setting for a fine multi-course dinner. Breakfast and lunch are often taken as picnics while out on game drives (though may be taken in camp if preferred).

There’s a small campfire in front of the dining tent where drinks are usually served before dinner.
