& Beyond romantic Hemingway-style tented wilderness camps feature some of Tanzania's largest and most spacious mobile tents, each with double bed, ensuite bathroom, separate W.C., and al fresco bucket shower (hot water delivered upon request). This is the ultimate in luxury fly camping. With a hint of Bedouin character, these tents boast custom made Indian rugs, crisp linens, sparkling crystal, and polished brass samovars and basins. Service includes personalised private butler service, delicious pan African meals, and traditional bush dinners served under the stars (or in the shelter of a separate dining tent or private sala). Each camp has its own expert &Beyond guides, as well as a fully equipped safari vehicle complete with onboard safe and charge points for digital cameras and equipment. There is no mains electricity or running water
These seasonal camps move around the Serengeti all year, bringing guests within range of the impressive herds of Africa's Great Migration. When the migration crosses over into Kenya, &Beyond keeps the camps in the remote and beautiful corners of the Serengeti, which are renowned for their excellent resident game. You will witness the limitless Serengeti plains, game-rich and dotted with graceful acacia trees, and enjoy up close and personal encounters with Africa's wilderness.
Using only private campsites, these migratory camps are entirely intimate and exclusive. The locations of these migratory camps are carefully plotted to coincide with the documented movements of the annual Great Migration as it traverses the Serengeti plains. The massive herds move relatively slowly enabling &Beyond to plan ahead and set up the camps in the best possible locations. The aim is to position the camps within comfortable driving distance of the migration for exciting daily safaris (early in the morning and again during the afternoon and early evening), or often for the full day. However, with nature being as unpredictable as it is, close proximity to the mass herds cannot always be guaranteed.
Serengeti Under Canvas gives the flexibility to be near the excitement of the migration, with the added luxury of having elegant, private, en suite tents that are set up in advance.
