Safari so good: Stunning mobile Serengeti camp offers front row seat to Africa’s Great Migration

Luxury hotel group Mantis is offering guests an exclusive front row seat to one of the most remarkable of African wildlife spectacles, the Great Migration.

Beginning this September, the all-new Siringit Migration Camp, which comprises eight luxury guest tents, will move every few months to follow the migration route of wildlife within the Serengeti National Park, ensuring glampers can fully experience the natural wonder.

During the migration thousands of wildebeest and zebras flow from the northern to the southern plains, in a bid to follow the short rains every October and November, and then west and north after the long rains in April, May and June. 

As the precise timing of the Serengeti wildebeest migration is entirely dependent upon the rainfall patterns each year, the camp will track the migration moving from north to south to west as follows: In September – October, the Siringit Migration Camp will be based in Northern Serengeti, at Kogatende. During December – March, it moves to Southern Serengeti Ngorongoro, Ndutu. For May – June, the Western Corridor camps at Kirawira.

Each of the locations has its own airstrip for guest arrivals and departures. Unlike many mobile safari camps, Siringit Migration Camp will be built on raised platforms, rather than ground mats, to leave a smaller eco footprint. 

Paul Gardiner, CEO of the conservation-focused holiday group, said: “The great migration is on the bucket-list of many international travellers and we want to make the experience even more momentous by getting our guests as close as possible to the wildlife. We also wanted to ensure that our mobile camps leave the lightest possible eco-footprint without compromising on luxury. Our guests play an important role in supporting conservation-led hospitality and the experiences we create for our guests allow them to see first-hand how Mantis offers curated destinations inspired by sustainable adventures. These are experiences where luxury travel and eco-tourism meet.”

Included in your stay at Siringit Migration Camp are: Morning and evening game drives, Picnic’s, bush lunches and dinners, Sundowners, Airstrip transfers and free Wi-Fi for the ‘gram. Rates start from £432 per person, per night (based on double occupancy).  

Siringit Migration Camp offers luxury glamping

Mantis suggests after arriving on an international flight into Kilimanjaro International airport guests spend at least one night at Siringit Villa to recoup and enjoy the cultural experiences Arusha has to offer, before journeying to the Serengeti National Park with a stay at either the new Siringit Migration Camp or the existing Siringit Serengeti Camp.
