The temporary camp settlement had a strong ethos around sustainability, community development and a commitment to operational practices that ensured the lowest possible environmental impact. The individual tents had every... More

A wonderful weekend. The camp was perfectly situated, the facilities and food were excellent, the staff were warm and hospitable, our guide went out of his way to insure we had an intimate experience with the Serengeti and its inhabitants. The animals cooperated too. Highly recommended.

We spent 4 nights at Ubuntu and can't say enough good things about it. The manager, David, and his assistant Abel, made us a great vacation and we laughed every hour with them. The chief chef, Anthony, is a wonderful cook and a hilarious guy to know. For 4 days our guide was Elia, he was perfect. Incredible eye sight,... More

Our family has been fortunate to enjoy the safari experience several times in the past 10 years. There is no doubt that touring the Serengeti is the best adventure of them all. There are lots of quality camps in the north of the reserve close to the infamous Mara River, scene of the annual drama which is the wildebeest migration.... More

Our guide in this camp was amazing, and the wildlife viewing top notch. We were disappointed in the food however, finding most proteins tough & overcooked.

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
