Exclusive Camps of Erstwhile Royalty

Ndutu, South Serengeti (December to April)

Royal Migration Camp Ndutu is the essence of exclusivity in the bush. With six comfortably appointed luxury/89*- tents, a retinue of staff with your own Aide de Camp and msaidaizi (Personal Assistance), the camp is designed to take you back to the days of erstwhile royalty.

Four luxury tents come complete with two king size beds, seating and bath areas and the highest of comforts.

Two luxury tents consist of two wings. One wing has a shower, flushing lavatory and a dresser with a sumptuous drawer for your attire. The other wing has a large vanity tablet with dual vanity areas, a writing desk and a romantic bathtub. A mere ten steps away, is your standalone and exclusive lounge to relax and take in the many sights, smells and sounds of Africa. Each of these little personal lounges has a lounger and a writing desk.

When you come to the Southern Serengeti in the calving season be prepared, to witness a gathering so large at times that it turns the earth black, the lake waters red and the sky brown with dust. The Wildebeest calve here due to the nutritious feed the short grass plains offer. The migration by far is the most awesome natural event the world has to offer. At Ndutu we believe you will, depending on the time of year you visit, hopefully see the migration in all its glory. The short grass plains extends to the horizon, at times filled with the migrants moving in synchronised symphony, as the predators wait with bated breath. Guests have experienced lions, leopards, serval, wild cat, hyena and cheetah around camp during these times, not to mention the many nights spent with buffalo grazing so close that you can hear them breathe and elephant herds passing within a few metres. At Royal Migration Camp, it’s always up close and personal with the wilderness. We love it, and we know you will too!

Game drives are truly surreal here. Wake up early and head off to the marsh, a few hundred meters from camp, or disappear into the plains beyond. Push yourself as much as you want, we will be there with you. Have lunch under the massive acacia tree at Hidden Valley or drive around Lake Ndutu and Lake Masek looking for elephant, buffalo, leopard and tree climbing lions. Many guests visit Ndutu to witness the migration but leave stunned by the sheer beauty.

The magnificence of the marshes, lakes, endless plains and gorges are mesmerising and unforgettable. Our camp will urge you to come back for more. As the old Maasai saying goes, “Once you have tasted the dust of Ndutu, you will return; again and again”.
