My husband and I stayed in Ubuntu for two nights as part of our safari trip in August.
Amazing location in Northern part of Serengeti Park, in the middle of complete wilderness made it unforgettable experience. Game drive starts straight from the entrance of the lodge and continues even on the way to the airport! Perfect location that allows you to spend 100% of safari time game driving in the park.
August was great time for migration and we were very lucky to see variety of animals including leopard, cheetah and lions among the others.
Food and accommodation were absolutely fantastic. Very comfortable and spacious tents with bathroom help you feel like in a luxury hotel among all the animals. Sunrise with the morning coffee served outside the tent was truly unforgettable!
Evening drinks by the fire and dinner in the open air luxury set up were also great.
The best and very important part about Ubuntu is its staff. They are very helpful and responsive and provide amazing service to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Mark and David - camp managers were always there too during breakfast, drinks and dinner time to make sure all the guests are fine and being taken care of.
Mark's insights on the local culture and exciting stories during the dinner were also very interesting and genuine.
We had great time in Ubuntu camp and also were lucky to have safari guide from their camp too, Goodluck ( name speaks for itself:-)) He was superb and made all the efforts for us to see the best of Northern Serengeti's wildlife also sharing in-depth knowledge about all the animals and their habits.
Would definitely recommend Ubuntu as a place to stay during your safari in Serengeti.
Thanks again to Mark, Goodluck and the rest of their team for an unforgettable first safari experience!
