overview

The Wildebeest Migration ranks as one of the most incredible natural sights on Earth and features on many a safari goers' ultimate bucket list. One of the best ways of ensuring great sightings of the passing gnu, gazelles and zebra is by joining a mobile camp that moves periodically to always be in proximity to the herds.

Kimondo Migration Camp is pitched in the famous Lamai Wedge of the northern Serengeti from July to November before moving to near Kusini in the south from December to March. In this way, you are always near the action: rutting, mating, river crossings or birthing. The Lamai Wedge is located between the Mara River and the Kenyan border, making a natural game 'hotspot'. In the south, camp is set up in a natural amphitheatre with excellent views of a popular waterhole. 

Consisting of only very comfortable eight tents with bucket showers and flush toilets, Kimondo caters for safari lovers age five and up.

Facilities

Based on a vintage explorer theme, this charming tented camp takes care to leave a light ecological footprint (power is via generator) while ensuring a high level of comfort. There is a charging station for camera batteries.

After your game drives, take time to relax and soak up the stunning views from your private verandah. The tastefully furnished central lounge and dining area provides a cozy gathering place to sip a chilled glass of wine as you pass the time during the heat of the day.

Dining

Your guide awakens you each morning with a flask of tea or coffee and biscuits before you set off at sunrise for a game drive. Upon your mid-morning return, a selection of delicious and wholesome choices awaits you for a hearty brunch.

Spend a relaxing afternoon in the lounge or on your verandah before high tea is served. The tempting delicacies on offer will fortify you for the afternoon’s excitement, more than enough to keep you going until sunset drinks while out on your game drive.

The early evening is given over to cocktails and discussions of the day’s events before indulging in a sumptuous 3-course dinner served in the dining room or under the stars. Enjoy a fireside cognac and the extravagance of the Milky Way before slipping under the covers, lulled to sleep by the sounds of the African night.

Tented Room

With just eight spacious tents in camp, there is a palpable sense of intimacy with your surroundings. Positioned to maximize their views, each custom-built canvas tent is en suite with a queen-sized bed and is tastefully furnished with East African flair, complete with Arabian lanterns adding a touch of exotic elegance. The en suite bathrooms have flush toilets and bucket showers, the water for which is heated on the campfire.

"Just 20 minutes drive from the Mara River. Many regard the Lamai Wedge as having the most beautiful scenery in the whole Serengeti eco-system. Only 9 tents, with all the creature comforts: king-size beds, fine linen and private verandas - ensure you have a very comfortable & unforgettable stay."
