Hidden among the rocky outcrops, Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp is located along the route taken by the great wildebeest migration. Comprising of 20 luxurious elevated tents, each with spacious and richly furnished bedrooms, Serengeti Migration Camp blends seamlessly into the environment. Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp will have some refurbishment done over the coming months, all the tents are to have new hyrax proof flysheets. As cute as these little creatures are, they enjoy the shelter provided by the gap between tent and flysheet, we’d like to persuade them to take their rest elsewhere.

Hyrax, also called rock rabbit or dassie, are small, furry mammals that look like a robust, oversized guinea pig. Hyraxes have stumpy toes with hoof-like nails. Guest will see these harmless animals around the camp, either scurrying up the rocks or sunbathing on the decks.

Situated next to the famous Grumeti River, which is home to resident hippos that bark and wallow their days away, Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp has become synonymous with low-impact high-action game viewing in a landscape that is untouched since the dawn of time.

One of the best ways to explore this area is on foot, where you will be accompanied by a professional walking Safari Guide whose knowledge of local flora, fauna, culture and history is unmatched. Elewana Collection is delighted to announce it has a number of new trails to explore for those who enjoy the outdoors and adventure*.

Elewana Collection has invested heavily in our guide training. We train our current guides on a regular basis to ensure they are at the top of their field, in our continued efforts to make sure guests have a superior experience when they stay at an Elewana property. As part of our continued training, we recently sent a number of our walking guides to South Africa for six weeks to learn from leading professionals in the Industry at Royal Malewane.

We have also applied for permission to create new vehicle trails in order to explore the areas surrounding the camp, offering guests at the camp a variety of routes when venturing out on their early morning and afternoon game viewing drives. We have already created a new route down from camp that brings guests down to the Mara River close to Kogatende – giving our guests incredible sightings of the river crossings that usually occur during the months of June and July. The vicinity around the camp itself hosts the herds as they migrate through this area from August through to November.

Serengeti is a vast wilderness that has plenty to offer throughout the year once the herds have departed. With a diversity of resident game, from the big cats to the gentle giants that roam this beautiful landscape, there is much to see and do in and around Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp

Whether it is walking safaris with experienced and highly knowledgeable guides or the sensation of being as close to nature’s daily fight for survival, the sensory feast that accompanies any visit to Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp will no doubt rival anything experienced before.
