The camp’s six open-plan walk-in meru tents feature en-suite bathrooms and deliver a traditional African safari feel while searching for the well-known Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra throughout East Africa. The camp moves every few months in order to “chase” the annual migration and the countless other species of the Serengeti ecosystem.
