The key at this price bracket is to stay in the mobile camps to maximise game viewing. The camps are much more comfortable than you might expect – some have four-poster beds etc ! Here is my pick of the best mobiles:
One of our favourite tented camps is Nasikia Migration Mobile Camp. This adventurous little camp offers great value for money and bags of character. Its simple approach to safari still sees spacious rooms and en-suites; a level of comfort that surprises most travellers. Don’t underestimate this place, it’s a cracking camp that gets seriously good customer feedback.
A slight step up however and you have Lemala Ndutu which is more luxurious but ultimately more expensive; it’s the camp to splash out on in my opinion. Lemala are a company whose reputation seems to be growing year on year; it’s a great option for clients looking for a luxury mobile camp at an affordable price.
Nasikia or Lemala are our stand out options at this price bracket but we also often use Chaka Camp as an alternative to either camp if space becomes an issue.
Stepping up in budget is Serengeti Safari Camp which becomes very good value when clients are staying for four nights due to a four for three deal. Run by one of the best operators in the business it is the best camp to splash out on. There’s a little more on this camp in the Classic bracket, where a product this good belongs!
