Ubuntu Camp is a mobile camp that tracks the great wildebeest migration throughout the year. The rooms and main communal areas are all tented, with sparse furnishings and few frills, but when the canvasses are pulled back, the magic of the wilderness is revealed in all its wonder. The camp is set up on the open southern plains between December and March in the Serengeti National Park, where the wildebeest migration graze on fresh grass. From June until November, the camp can be found in the north of the park, where the wildebeest cross the mighty Mara River.
The camp has a simple set up, with director’s chairs, sofas, and large cushions on the floor, wicker mats and canvas tents. The nearby dining tent is always abuzz with life, as a meeting and feasting space for guests and guides. A typical day at Ubuntu begins with an early morning game drive or guided walks through the Serengeti when the camp is in the south between December and March. Highly trained guides love to encourage guests to experience the Serengeti in their own way, offering views of bird and game that span the best of best; including elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion and of course, wildebeest. Guests are returned to the main camp for a hearty breakfast, or a picnic style meal is prepared for them in the bush. Walking safaris are safe and provide a real feeling of adventure, as you get close to some of nature’s most breathtaking creatures. The evenings are magical; lit only by lanterns, guests and guides gather around the campfire before dinner and exchange stories about the day’s adventures. Meals are a communal experience and a celebration of life, the beauty of Africa and the magic of the Serengeti.
There are six tented rooms, each with a sturdy bed, or twin beds, a small writing desk, director’s chairs and a small lounge area. Each tent is en-suite, with a single bath and a bucket shower. The Ubuntu experience is all about the authenticity of the wild, yet still providing some valuable creature comforts for guests.
