Kimondo Migration Camp
Serengeti National Park
Closing 31 October 2021
Kimondo Migration Camp is a rustic yet comfortable camp and is the sister camp to Olakira and Ubuntu. Like its sister camps, Kimondo moves between two different locations. There are eight tents at Kimondo Camp, five to one side of the main area and three to the other. All the tents are spacious and have their own en-suite bathrooms.
July to October: Northern Serengeti
From July to October, home for Kimondo Migration Camp is in the northern Serengeti on the famous Lamai Wedge. This is a golden triangle of grassland between the Mara River and the Kenyan border. The area is regularly hailed as one of the highlights of the entire Serengeti ecosystem. A gathering point for the Great Migration in winter, the area is rich in wildebeest and antelope … and the predators that pursue them.
The Mara River, famed for dramatic scenes as the herds attempt the treacherous river crossing is only a short drive from camp, making Kimondo North the ideal place from which to experience the drama of the migration and the stillness of the Serengeti.
December to March: Southern Serengeti
As winter eases into summer the herds lift their noses and move to the grasslands in the south. Kimondo is never far behind. In November the tents are packed and come December the camp is pitched anew in a spectacular location in the southern Serengeti. It is on these grassy plains that the millions of wildebeest have a chance to graze, rest and calve. Enjoy superb sightings of the herds during daily game drives or simply watch from camp and let the migration come to you.
