Serengeti North Wilderness Camp is a ‘seasonal’ camp located in the Lamai Wedge, the northern-most corner of the Serengeti National Park. This relatively isolated spot is close to the Mara River and is just a few kilometres from one of the recognised ‘crossing points’ for the wildebeest migration. The camp is only open during the peak migration period when the large wildebeest herds are specifically in the area - namely July to October.
The style of camp is simple but with every comfort being taken care of. A large, airy, central dining tent complements the comfortable lounge tent which has a small reference library, maps, some games for children and a recharging facility for cameras and videos.
The chef will prepare sumptuous meals for your enjoyment and special dietary requests are taken care of.
Comprising of just 10 spacious tents, each tent has an en-suite eco-friendly flushing toilet and bush-shower off a small dressing room area. There is also a shady veranda, where guests can relax and watch for any passing wildlife.
Bird watching is also very rewarding, both around the camp and on game drives.
A morning balloon safari in place of a game drive is also a wonderful way to see the Serengeti wildlife from a different perspective.

General Information For Guests
Serengeti North Wilderness Camp is a seasonal camp and located in the heart of the Serengeti National Park, with access to arguably some of the best game viewing in Africa. The style of camp is simple but with every comfort being taken care of. Seasonal camps have the benefit of being able to move to some of the best game viewing areas of the Park and every 3-6 months the camp moves to a new location.
The tents have an en-suite eco-friendly toilet and bush (bucket) shower (please note that the water is limited so showers tend to be available just once a day) and a small dressing room area. Lighting is by 12-volt (solar powered) with bedside lamps provided. The tents each have a shady verandah, where guests may relax and read quietly or perhaps watch birds and animals.
A large, airy, central dining tent offers a comfortable lounge area with a small reference library and maps, some games and a recharging facility for cameras and videos. There is also a typical safari campfire in the evenings where guests can enjoy sundowners and snacks, and relive the day's experiences.
The camp has a backup generator if needed.
There is an askari (Masai guard) in the camp at night, and a whistle in your tent if you need to get his attention.
