Where to stay in Seregenti in late Nov, or early Dec.

Any ideas for tented camps near wildlife in late Nov. early Dec. The Serengeti is a big place, and we what to stay in tented camps that are moderate in price, and located in the areas where the wildlife is located at that time of year. We plan to use a safari operater out of Arusha, taveling to two parks and the crater before the Seregenti, and then fly on to Zanzibar.

To actually predict where the wildebeest will be in Nov. early Dec. depends on the rain.

Don't try to over plan and predict the rainfall and the movement. You could be in a camp one night and wake up and the wildebeest are an hours drive away or more. Then the next morning they are right outside your tent.

Many operators have their own camps and then their favourite camps- there is no one best location or one best lodge or camp.

What have you been offered?

We stayed at Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp Nov 26-28 Nov 2012. Very convenient if not luxury place to stay. Do not know the price, being included in private safari package, but we requested mid-price accommodations and this is what we got.

The migration herds were not there but in Central Serenegeti/Seronera area, some 45 mins not too uncomfortable drive away.

There are wildlife though, we enjoyed watching a lion couple on honeymoon on a cliff nearby. One night I nearly fell from the bed when lion roared in vicinity. Klipspringers, rock hyrax and baboons are roaming between tents.

We liked this place a lot.
