I do not camp - at all- and was extremely nervous about staying at Ubuntu but this 8 tent mobile camp visited near the end of the season in the Northern Serengeti was in a word fabulous. Epimark, the manager, runs an excellent camp. The attention to detail was first rate as was the delicious food (always several vegetable offering at dinner if you are a vegetarian and don't miss the french toast at breakfast!) the staff, the tents and our guide Goodluck. We stayed at another Asilia facility in Tarangire and I can only say they need to take a page from Ubuntu. Ubuntu was far and away our favorite place in Tanzania. Even though early rains in September had started the migration early, we were able to see a small wildebeest crossing. Goodluck guided us to cheetah, leopard, lions & cubs, rhino & baby and so much more. Again, if you had told me that I would enjoy the smaller tents, the water pull shower (on demand) and remoteness of this camp beforehand, I'd have bet you anything you would be wrong. I did this camp for my son to enjoy but this was the most real Africa on the trip and I would only go the small tented route on any return. It was that amazing. PS we used Avon bug repellent wipes and did not get a single tse-tse or mosquito bite!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ubuntu Migration Camp stops at three spectacular locations across the north, west and south of the Serengeti, following in the tracks of massive herds of wildebeest as they cross the vast plains of the Serengeti in an ancient migration cycle. Shadowing the wildebeest's every move, Ubuntu Camp uncovers fascinating and unexplored corners of this great wilderness, ensuring that first-class game viewing is never far away. With their unwavering focus on keeping pace with the migration, Ubuntu's guides have an enviable reputation for bringing this remarkable natural phenomenon to life. The camp itself is intimate and personal, and the seven spacious tented suites epitomise traditional East African safari charm. ... more less
