Hidden among the rocky outcrops, Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp is located along the route taken by the great wildebeest migration. Comprised of 20 luxurious elevated tents, each with spacious and richly furnished bedrooms, Serengeti Migration Camp blends seamlessly into the environment. Over the coming months, Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp will have the following refurbishments done.
1. Guests will see hyrax – small, furry mammals that look like robust, oversized guinea pigs – around the camp, either scurrying up the rocks or sunbathing on the decks. As cute and harmless as these little creatures are, they enjoy the shelter provided by the gaps between tents and flysheets, and Elewana would like to persuade them to take their rest elsewhere. Therefore, all tents are new hyrax-proof flysheets.
2. Situated next to the famous Grumeti River, which is home to resident hippos that bark and wallow their days away, Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp has become synonymous with low-impact, high-action game viewing in a landscape that is untouched since the dawn of time. One of the best ways to explore this area is on foot, where you will be accompanied by a professional walking Safari Guide whose knowledge of local flora, fauna, culture and history. The Elewana Collection is delighted to announce it has a number of new trails to explore for those who enjoy the outdoors and adventure
3. The Elewana Collection has invested heavily in their guide training. They train their current guides on a regular basis to ensure they are at the top of their field. As part of the continued training, they recently sent a number of their walking guides to South Africa for six weeks to learn from leading professionals in the Industry at Royal Malewane.
4. Elewana has also applied for permission to create new vehicle trails in order to explore the areas surrounding the camp, offering guests a variety of routes when venturing out on their early morning and afternoon game viewing drives. They have already created a new route down from the camp that brings guests down to the Mara River close to Kogatende – giving the guests incredible sightings of the river crossings. The vicinity around the camp itself hosts the herds as they migrate through this area from August through to November.
Serengeti is a vast wilderness that has plenty to offer throughout the year once the herds have departed. With a diversity of resident game, from the big cats to the gentle giants that roam this beautiful landscape, there is much to see and do in and around Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp. Whether it is walking safaris with experienced and highly knowledgeable guides or the sensation of being as close to nature’s daily fight for survival, the sensory feast that accompanies any visit to Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp will no doubt rival anything experienced before.
