Overview of Bologonya Under Canvas Camp

Ideal for those seeking a genuine African safari, Bologonya Under Canvas promises an authentic stay – from Meru-style canvas tents to game drives through the untamed Serengeti and spotting the Big 5 (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo) as you traverse the wild savannah.

Situated in one of Africa’s most famous safari destinations, Bologonya affords guests the chance to experience the less frequented and more remote areas of the Serengeti National Park. Early morning and afternoon game drives are a thrill as you set out through the plains, spotting giraffe grazing on the top leaves of trees and hyena stalking prey. Enhance your drive through the plains with breakfast in the bush at sunrise or sundowners with lake Masek as your view. And if your visit coincides with the region’s green season (November to May), you’ll be able to enjoy a scenic hot-air balloon flight over the Serengeti’s south plains.

The seasonal mobile camp operates from June to November, changing location three times a year in pursuit of nature’s greatest spectacle, the Great Wildebeest Migration. It secures prime spots for every part of this magical show, from the birth of the calves to the moment the wildebeest reach their final destination.
