Since late 2021, Kimondo has been superseded by our two much-loved tented migration camps: Ubuntu and Olakira. Similar to Kimondo, Ubuntu and Olakira each move during the year between two outstanding sites in the north and south of the Serengeti. This means that guests who choose Ubuntu or Olakira are likely to see the Great Migration herds regardless of when they visit.
At the beginning of the year, the wildebeest gather to calve, which brings both an abundance of vulnerable young calves as well as dramatic scenes as big cats gather on the hunt.
From June until the end of the year, the herds move westerly and then northwards up through Tanzania’s Serengeti and into Kenya’s Masai Mara, enduring tense and exciting river crossings along the way.
Ubuntu lies in the south from mid-November to mid-March. It sets up in the north from mid-June to October.
Olakira is situated in the south from December to March, before moving north from June to mid-November.
