Welcome to Serengeti Under Canvas
Experience a classic tented safari in soothing solitude and spectacular comfort, with only the canvas walls of your tent separating you from the wonders of the Serengeti.
Moving five times a year the camps attempt to anticipate the movements of the Great Migration, bringing guests as close as possible to the wildebeest action, as well as exploring magnificent resident game. With just nine tents nestled at each private campsite, enjoy the luxury of complete contentment and nights spent in the African bush.
Using only private campsites, these mobile camps are intimate and exclusive.

Custom made rugs and polished brass samovars add a touch of elegance and romance.
The guest areas include a dedicated sitting and dining tent, which provides deep sofas from which to contemplate the vastness and peace of the surrounding landscape. Relax under the dark velvet night sky and savour hearty cuisine served on sparkling crystal and silver that reflects the twinkling light of millions of shining stars. Cluster around a roaring campfire to share stories of the day’s magic and listen to the African night come alive.
Why we love it
Access to the Migration
The Serengeti Under Canvas camp movement is carefully planned to anticipate the movements of the Great Migration, bringing you as close as possible to the wildebeest action. The campsites move five times a year to better enable our guests close access to this extraordinary phenomenon.
Experience the theatre and adventure of the African bush through the charm of camping combined with true comfort. Enjoy evening drinks around the camp fire, dine under the stars and fall asleep to lions roaring and the peace of the African bushveld, removed from the chaos of the world.
Ultimate wildlife action
The ultimate safari in the midst of the vast herds, with wildebeest often frequenting the camps. Get up close and personal with exceptional resident game year round, big cat sightings, rhino in the north, cheetah sightings in the south and massive elephant and buffalo herds roaming across the vast plains.
Surrounded by diverse landscapes and wildlife action, Under Canvas brings with it a unique opportunity for photographers of all levels. Not only by day, but with limited light interference you can explore the vast night sky and its stunning constellations with your cameras too.
Going Beyond the Expected
Go ‘Beyond the Expected’ with a safari theatre experience. Led by our experienced guides, enjoy a morning bush cappuccino rendezvous and evening sundowner stop on your game drives, as well as a complimentary pair of Swarovski Optik binoculars, for your use during your stay with us.
