A Delightful Way to Visit the Western Serengeti

Ubuntu is a delightful and very well managed mobile tented safari camp that spends June in the Western Serengeti - a time when the migration is usually there. Our driver guide was always supportive and attentive to our requests. He gave us very good sightings in the Western area and also drove us to the Central Serengeti to see the migration there - a very long day, but well worth it.

A mobile camp is never the last word in luxury, but this one leverages outstanding management and friendly service to produce a top quality bush experience. Anna is wonderful! She is a problem solver who stays polite and helpful no matter what the challenge may be. The chef performed miracles and gave us better food than that which we received at some fancier places. The accommodations were well designed and there is always someone nearby ready, willing, and able to provide what you need.

This was the first time that I stayed at an Asilia Camp and I had thought long and hard before choosing it rather than the nearby &Beyond camp. I am very glad I chose Ubuntu and would happily do so again.

Simply Loved Ubuntu!

This was the first of two Asilia camps my husband and I stayed in and the experience will make us always look for Asilia. Our guide was wonderful, always finding just the animals large and small as well as many, many birds, we hoped to see and answering all our many questions with humor and patience. Our tracker was fascinating, a Maasai who had killed a lion as a young man. The camp managers could not have been more helpful and thoughtful. The food was abundant and scrumptious. The bucket shower, my first, was an unexpected pleasure. Because the migration wasn't at the Grumeti, our guide said we would go to it three hours away in the Central Serengeti in a closed car with a pop up roof, to avoid the dust. We saw thousands of zebra on the move, beautiful cheetahs drinking and hunting, many lions and a leopard before we returned to Ubuntu West. Thank you Yustus, Anna, and Future for making our experience so wonderful."

Bush Hospitality at its Best!

Ubuntu is a mobile camp that changes its location based on the migration. When I visited in late May, the camp was in the Western Serengeti, close to the Grumeti river. My stay here was perfectly in line with what I had experienced at Dunia, which is a very high standard of service and comfort, while remaining unpretentious and true to the to the ideals of spending time in the bush.
I was lucky that during my stay some herds were actually crossing the Western Serengeti on their way towards the North, so I got to experience some of ‘the great migration’. Granted, you probably won’t see hundreds of thousands of wildebeest grazing on wide-open plains due to the nature of the terrain in this part of the park, but the experience is still fantastic. I was lucky to watch a wildebeest be taken down by a crock, and five cheetahs chilling in the grass waiting for any kind of prey to walk by. Those were definitely two highlights during my entire trip, and I hope to return to Ubuntu one day."

a special treasure of africa!

This place will forever have a very special place in our hearts. This was our final leg of our Safari through Tanzania and we will always have such vivid memories of the beauty and experience of this place.
The guides were brilliant! The thing we value was that the guides truly respected the animals and landscape and this meant we had an amazing experience watching nature unfold without disturbance. We saw other guides interrupt the flow of nature by getting too close to the animals just for the ‘photo opp’ but the way our guides showed us around meant we got to see much more authentic and natural experiences. Cheetah hunting. A cheetah and her cubs. Wild dogs hunting down Wildebeest. A leopard on the prowl. Hyena and vultures fighting over a zebra carcass. The guides had eyes like eagles, unbelievable driving skills and the respect for the animals and environment that we loved. We were over the moon by what we got to see and their commitment to show us the beauty of Africa. Plus we got to share many laughs along the way!"

Memories for a lifetime!

The one word that comes to mind to describe David and his staff is "Exceptional"! Throughout my wife’s and my entire 3 night (4 day) stay in February 2014, every detail was taken care of – we wanted for nothing. The foods prepared for each meal were absolutely delicious. Our tent was spacious and the huge bed very comfortable with a wonderfully warm hot water bottle placed under the sheets each night.

Our guide Makubi, was outstanding.- totally knowledgable about the game we were viewing and giving us a wonderful experience of a Cheetah jumping up onto the hood of our opened topped Landrover and staying with us for almost 30 minutes - to the envy of all of the other vehicles that were around us!"

5 star tenting!

Our travel to Tanzania, Africa was truly amazing. The Stay at Ubuntu Camp on the Serengeti was a definite highpoint. The accommodations were excellent with all the amenities! Mark and staff were grand, and we were treated like royalty. The animal sightings unbelievable!!
Would we return? Absolutely!"

Tenting at its best!

This is tenting at its best! Inside the tent - hot showers and flush toilets, totally comfortable beds and gourmet food to rival any 5 star restaurant. It was amazing to watch the endless parade of migrating wildebeests passing so close to the camp or have a giraffe wander by just outside the tent. Mark and his staff are awesome. They welcomed us warmly with cool towels and a special drink. They treated us like family, always making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed from sun screen to hot chocolate. It was truly the experience we were hoping to find on the Serengeti."

Spectacular!

You're in the middle of nowhere and up pops this campsite. Not just any ordinary campsite, no no no. It has a "Lounge" area including bar and library, another large tent for dining, campfire area for pre-dinner drinks and nibblies. The staff meet you with refreshing towel every time you return from a drive. Nothing is too much trouble. Mark and his team cater for every whim you may have. Then you get to your tent. Again not just an ordinary tent, oh no. It has a separate flushing toilet, large separate shower (hot water), bathrobes, full size sink, king bed, loads of room for your bags and to move around in. There are chairs and a table outside so you can watch the animals passing in the morning and at night. That in itself is a sight to be seen. Of course you have to eat. WELL, what that chef can do in a camp kitchen is beyond belief. 5 star meals every time. You never left wanting more. Variety, variety, variety! Best campsite to be in!!"

New Year's Safari from Ubuntu Camp, the Best in Serengeti

Our days at Ubuntu Camp in the Serengeti were perfect. Mark and his staff anticipated our every need. The food was excellent, and special accommodations were gladly made for my diet. Mark and/or a member of staff were always there when we returned from game drives with hot towels, ready to deliver hot water to our tent for showers. Everything was done for us including our laundry so that we could concentrate on a half dozen or so of the most productive picture-taking game drives you can imagine: the migration, cheetah, giraffes, zebra, lions, wild dogs, lion cubs, dozens of birds, and on and on to absolute perfection. Great sense of community with the other four or so guest couples and families; we spent a festive New Year's Eve there, and Mark & Co. made sure to have special sundowner drinks and roasted goat ribs etc. to help celebrate the holiday. The fact we had heavy rain late that night just added to the fun. Great place to bring in the new year, on a ridge overlooking the Endless Plain.
Thanks Mark. You guys are absolutely THE BEST!!!!"
