Way off the beaten track, Serian Serengeti South camp is for the truly adventurous and those yearning for the Africa of old. Time spent here is time spent experiencing the vast plains and Wildebeest Migration in much the same way as they were experienced a hundred years ago – but with the little luxuries of flush toilets, warm bush showers and generator power.

Open only from December to May and situated in the remote south-west of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, there is no Internet connection and cellphone signal is patchy; in this remote and little-visited part of the reserve, it is just you, your trackers, and the great big African sky. To make your ‘digital detox’ even more blissful, the food is plentiful and good, the eight tents luxuriously furnished, and the beds warm and comfortable. After a day of some of the best game viewing on the continent and a delicious meal under the stars, you will sleep the sleep of the truly satisfied, lulled by the night sounds of zebras wandering through the camp, lions roaring in the distance and hyenas laughing at their own jokes.

Go during calving season – from mid-January to late February more than 400 000 calves are born – and camp right on the edge of the southern plains, under the quintessentially African umbrella thorn trees. The plateau overlooks Lake Eyasi and offers arguably better views of the Great Migration than almost anywhere else. And, of course, with the plains animals come the predators; you are likely to see too many to count. It is also your private paradise; you get your own vehicle, guide and spotter who take you to some of the most secret places in Tanzania. For even more adventure, opt for a few days of fly camping or book the entire camp for your group’s exclusive use and fly in from the Lake Ndutu airstrip.

Facilities are at a minimum at Serian’s Serengeti South camp – for a reason. Here the focus is entirely on the experience of being in the wild, untrammelled by modern man. This is how people of yesteryear interacted with the environment, not straining to filter out the noise of the modern world. You, too, will become attuned to it. There is 24-hour power to the tents using a generator and inverter and charging sockets that take UK 3-pin plugs. There is a laundry service.

Meals at Serian’s Serengeti South are taken in the large communal mess tent crowned with a wrought-iron chandelier, rather like a convivial dinner party. The food is delicious, varied and plentiful; lunch and breakfast can be taken outdoors, and sundowners while on a safari walk. Serian Serengeti South can accommodate special diets on request, and dining with your family only or taking early meals are possible.

Standard Tent

This is a real, old-style safari camp. You sleep in one of eight traditional Meru tents with en suite bathrooms, flush loos and safari bucket showers heated in the old-fashioned way on the campfire.

"Enjoy a comfortable yet very authentic tented camp experience in the Southern Serengeti, with the sounds of the bush surrounding you. There is nothing better than lying in bed listening to the nocturnal animals as you fall asleep. Don’t be surprised to see hundreds of little ones on the plains whilst on game drives as it is usually Calving season when you visit!"
