Review

The only real competitor to Sayari camp and the other Asilia camps in northern Tanzania, Nomad Serengeti Camp has really led the way for the last 15 years or so in the Serengeti. Moving seasonally through the year, according to the movement of the herds, the camp is a bit more of a basic affair than that of Sayari, but this gives the camp an expeditionary feel and really does mane that you are always in the heart of the action. With a permanent camp under construction in the north of the Serengeti, this is a great choice.

Location

The original concept behind the Nomad Tented Camps was to give people as good a safari experience as was possible. Able to break camp in a matter of hours and move on, we are glad that, today, they have stuck with this philosophy. As the world of safari has become more and more focused on building luxury camps with spas and swimming pools, we are glad that there are still some companies that offer the raw experience of getting out into the bush and really absorbing the sounds and smells.

Rooms and layout

The rooms and communal areas in Nomad Serengeti are fairly simple with the emphasis on getting out into nature rather than spending all your time in your room. Not that this is to say that they are uncomfortable, but bucket showers and long drop loos are not for everyone...although, even after a week, you will hardly notice the difference from what you are used to...I think I even got hotter and more hot water for my showers than I get in my London flat!

As mentioned, however, the focus is on the safari and, unlike in any other camp, Nomad Serengeti allocate each tent their own vehicle, allowing you to wander off and try to spot what ever it is that you like...regardless of anyone else...a real treat these days.

Always great location, superb safari experience, great food/service/guiding

May be a bit too rough for some
