Kimondo Camp

Kimondo Camp is a fabulous mobile safari camp that follows the wildebeest herds from the Mara River in the north to the lush, golden grasslands of the Serengeti in the south. Crafted from timber and canvas, the 8 generous and spacious guest tents at this elegant property contain king-sized cast iron beds, ensuite bathrooms and private verandas.

Meals can be enjoyed in the plush mess tent or out under starry night skies to the light of flickering lanterns. There is also a crackling campfire around with which drinks are served and safari stories can be shared. Should you wish to spend the day out amongst the prolific wildlife of the Serengeti, a picnic-style or bush lunch can be arranged.

When Kimondo Camp is in the north, aside from massive herds of wildebeest, keep your eyes peeled for big cats such as lion and leopard as well as hyena, elephant and Nile crocodile. Up here, it’s also possible to interact with local communities. When the camp is in the south, large predators are also common, but you’re likely to also spot zebra, jackal and perhaps even African wild dog. A typical day on safari at this camp will see you departing on two game drives, the first very early in the morning and the second in the late afternoon.

Tanzania Overview

Why Tanzania: Few places in the world can offer the immense diversity and quantity of game found in Tanzania, nor the ease of viewing it. Tanzania is also the arena for the great wildebeest and zebra migration and has some of Africa’s most stunning scenery.

Game Viewing: The best time to visit is November to May when the wildebeest herds amass on the Serengeti’s southern plains. Feb/Mar is when the herds are calving. The dry season (Jun to Sep) is the best time to visit Tarangire and the Selous.

Culture: With some 120 tribes, Tanzania is culturally very diverse, with peoples ranging from the Nilotic Maasai to Hadza bushmen, the Makonde (famous for their wood carvings) and Swahili-speaking coast-dwellers, some descended from Arabs.

Climate: Much of the Serengeti is over 5,000 ft so temperatures vary between 22°- 29°C. It is generally sunny and windy, with rain falling between Nov – May as isolated showers. The low-lying Rift Valley is much hotter (30°-35°C), while the coast is hot and humid. The Ngorongoro Highlands can be cool to cold at night.

Combine With: Kenya. Most visitors arrive via Nairobi in Kenya so it is easy to combine parks in the two countries. Kenya’s famous Masai Mara is an extension of the Serengeti and the wildebeest migration can be found here in September/October.

Getting There: You can fly via Johannesburg in South Africa then north to Nairobi in Kenya. Or fly via the Middle East to Nairobi. We can organise road transfers from there to Arusha, the “safari capital” of northern Tanzania; alternatively, you can fly into Kilimanjaro Airport.
