Loliondo has never simply been about ‘just more Serengeti’, so we wanted our camp here to be a tented camp with a difference; one that reflected the space and freedom that, to us, define the area. The lounge and dining tents are in fact our own design of Yurt, reflecting the nomadic culture, and allowing us to make the most of the panoramic views that are typical here.
And like the Maasai, Nduara Loliondo is nomadic; every 6 months, the camp is packed up and moved. In Ololosokwan, where you’ll find the camp between June and November, the tents sit high on a ridge with commanding views over a broad acacia-lined valley. In the mornings and evenings the sights and sounds of Maasai life permeate the air as cattle move too and from a local manyatta.
In Piyaya, to the South, where the camp moves between December and May, the scenery changes dramatically and the yurts sit beneath vast skies on the edge of wide and endless plains. The main mess and dining areas, beside a mature spreading acacia tree, look out over a small vlei.
