Available January–April 2020 at a real bargain of a price, this adventurous mobile camp is well worth considering if you’re seeking authentic accommodation within the North Serengeti. One of next year’s most amazing deals!
Asilia Adventures Basecamp will offer excellent value for money, thrilling safari experiences, and superb service standards throughout its first run from January to April next year. Joining a portfolio that includes some of our favourite camps and lodges across Tanzania, Kenya, and Zanzibar, Basecamp looks like a top pick for travellers after an authentic safari in a wildlife-rich region. The accommodation will be available on a shared or exclusive basis, and the price of your stay will include all meals, a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks, vehicle and walking safaris, and bush picnics.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
The site of Basecamp lies in the North Serengeti, close to the Mara river. This means the camp will be accessed via road transfer from Kogatende Airstrip.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES AT ASILIA ADVENTURES BASECAMP:
Guest accommodation will consist of just four tents. A photograph provided by Asilia Africa shows a spacious bedroom with cream canvas walls and ceiling, numerous clear-canvas windows, and a floor dotted with subtly patterned rugs and other carpeting. We understand that both double and twin rooms will be available. Other features inside each tent include mosquito netting, bedside stands and lighting, a writing desk and chair, a couple of easy chairs, and a safety deposit box. Asilia mentions that every tent will have an en-suite washroom, complete with bucket shower. And a few toiletries will be supplied free of charge.
The communal lounge and dining areas at Asilia Adventures Basecamp will be set up in one large mess tent. A photo of this structure reveals that it’ll have roll-up canvas apertures almost all around its walls, so guests will be able to enjoy views over the North Serengeti while relaxing and tucking in to delicious meals. Additional seating is positioned at the foot of an immense acacia just a short distance from the mess tent, while a couple of hammock-style chairs dangle from the tree’s sturdy boughs. Slightly farther from the mess tent, there’s a fire-pit, which will be the perfect place for social gatherings!
ACTIVITIES AT ASILIA ADVENTURES BASECAMP:
Asilia Adventures Basecamp will provide mainly classic safari activities:
Expertly guided game drives– These will most likely be offered during early morning and late afternoon into evening. The North Serengeti is characterised by sprawling savanna, rocky kopjes, woodlands, and water sources, and it’s home to a great range of wildlife! You’ll have a lot of fun looking out for all Big Five – lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, and buffalo – in addition to numerous smaller predators and herbivores, not least cheetah, hyenas, jackals, wild dog, hippo, and plenty of plains game. You’ll also have the option of enjoying a picnic while out in the bush.
Bush walks– Please note, this activity will have a minimum age requirement of 12 years. Also accompanied by a knowledgeable and experienced guide, walks will provide opportunities to scrutinise the smaller lives of the North Serengeti – for example, its plants, insects, and birds.
Photographic safaris– The camp will have a vehicle that’s perfect for taking photos as you explore the bush. At present that’s all the information we have, but we’ll update this section as soon as possible.
*This property is unfenced and located in a wildlife area, so large and potentially dangerous animals do pass through. If you opt to stay here, always be alert when walking around the camp and request for a member of staff to escort you if you have any concerns. Any guest is escorted after dark as a matter of course.
