Ubuntu was one of four Asilia camps we visited on our recent trip to Tanzania. It has the most modest facilities of those four. But given that it's a mobile camp that's to be expected. However, the experience was fantastic mostly due to the incredibly warm and gracious staff, particularly Anna. One highlight was the way me and my husband... More

We had a great time at Asilia, Ubunto. The staff is very attentive, excellent and bountiful food. We had lovely meals in the bush and in the tents. Our guide was awesome - Eustace!!! And Anna and the staff were as good as it gets - no detail overlooked. Thank you Asilia for a wonderful experience.

For a mobile camp Ubuntu is amazingly well set up - maybe not as "glamping" as others but when you take into account they move 3 times a year (what a chore that must be!) it has much more than you would expect from the ensuites with flushing loo to the king sized beds which were super comfortable with crisp...

Add us to the list of people raving about David and his staff at Ubuntu Camp. We stayed three nights here and cannot say enough good things about the camp. We stayed at other camps on the trip, but this is the only one we are going to the trouble to review. What sets this place apart is David and... More

We spent three nights with our two children at this truly wonderful camp. David and his staff were amazing and so professional, and the service they delivered in the middle of nowhere is astonishing! The tents were so comfortable and the setting idyllic. Most importantly, we cannot praise the staff enough... they were friendly and fun and our kids, in... More

Luxury Camping at its best! The staff was absolutely amazing and right on the ball! This camp had showers, toilets, full size/king bed options. Upon arrival the entire staff greeted us with hot towels and something to drink. They were nothing but nice and attentive to our needs. The food was great, full menu with a Chef on hand. They...

What makes this camp is the excellent service of all its staff. Led by David, the whole team made us feel very welcome and went the extra mile to make our stay special. The camp itself offers top end tented accommodation which was spacious and clean. The food was plentiful and very good although a bit too much at times,... More

My husband & I stayed at Ubuntu Camp during a recent trip to Africa. It was one of our favorite lodging sites ever. It's a mobile tent camp-moves 3 times a year to be best situated for the rainy season. King David was the camp manager. He was an amazing host, keeping everything behind the scenes running smoothly without a... More

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
