Ubuntu was incredible. The food, staff and service. The staff were passionate about their work, and it was reflected in their service. the management team were incredible, hands-on and really ensured a positive vibe. It is worthy to note, there are two sites on this property, the 'Camp' and the 'Tented' lodge. We stayed at the permanent Tented Lodge. The... More

This was the best of the whole trip. Being in the middle of Serengeti, in the wilderness, but yet with such modern and civilized accomodation. Super tents with toilette and shower, comfortable beds and coffee brought to you in the morning. Out on a walk, just around the corner from the camp we found 13 giraffes grazing near a tiny... More

This was our first safari and were not sure what to expect from a tented camp but were pleasantly surprised. Beds were comfortable and the hot water bag was a nice touch. I was dreading the bush shower but it was not too bad and there was plenty of hot water. It was very comfortable and David, Future and the... More

My family and I all thoroughly enjoyed staying here in this camp. The tents were lovely and the beds were very comfortable. The food was excellent. Every night it was fantastic probably some of the best food we had all holiday! The service was great however sometimes after a safari you just wanted to be left alone. Our guide was... More

This was our first time in a tent camp and we loved the experience! The accommodations were very comfortable. The staff and management were tremendous. Every need or desire was taken care of. For example, on our first night our safari vehicle came back about dinner time in a torrential downpour. The staff met us at the dining tent with... More

We spent 11 amazing days on safari in Tanzania and Ubuntu was our last stop. We loved it here so much that we decided to stay in camp one day, much to our guide's surprise, instead of game viewing. Our accommodations were so comfortable the staff and management here were so warm, helpful and laid back, food was spectacular--nothing was... More

We had some reservations about going the tented camp approach. It was nothing short of fantastic. Service and efficiency was second to none. Food and free drinks were wonderful. Lying in my comfy bed with fine linens watching the moon, stars and wildebeests, zebra was highlight of trip. If you want a real African experience and be close to Great... More

I was very disappointed in this camp, it was situated far from the Mara river in the middle of no where. Our guide thought it more important to race from point A to B than to see the game in between, I had to point out the game to the American couple travelling with us, I asked him on numerous... More

Ubuntu Camp is a tented camp that moves around with the Great Migration so you can find them, depending on the time of the year, in the south, middle or north of the Serengeti. We stayed with them in the north, about 10 km. from the Kenian border and were lucky to see the Migration. Which means wildebeest all over... More
