Again, unbelievable value at this time of year. Serengeti Safari Camp is the first place I’ll mention – the first-ever mobile and arguably the very best of the mobile camps. Nomad Tanzania run this camp – a company known for owning some of the finest authentic product in Africa. The guiding here is superb whilst a high quality, authentic experience is the companies focus. Four nights for the price of three is unbelievably good value.
Alex Walkers Serian camps are also well worth a mention; truly superb privately guided owner run camps. However they tend to open around the 15th December most years - you might be lucky.
The next company to mention is Asilia. Asilia work on the basis of a 'tiered' pricing system whereby less busy days offer better value...so rates can change day by day. Their permanent camps Dunia Camp and Namiri Plains (Namiri is the perfect location for the first two weeks of December) are exceptionally good properties whilst their mobile camps Olakira and Ubuntu are also well worth a look towards the end of the month when their areas tend to have the larger herds.
Taking the luxury levels up a notch and Mwiba is one of the best permanent lodges in the Serengeti. It is incredibly high quality – a genuinely 5* luxury camp – and one that is located in a vast private reserve. Exclusivity is guaranteed. This is a property that guarantees some of the best food and service of anywhere in the country. The property has high prices but delivers a genuinely top quality safari experience.
