Loliondo Safari Camp moves within the Loliondo area on the eastern periphery of the Serengeti National Park, giving you a rare freedom to get much closer to nature and the Maasai. Although the Serengeti park boundaries officially define the Serengeti itself, the eco-system goes way beyond and encompasses all of the Loliondo area.
The camp is seasonal and light enough to move locations throughout the area, but it will not move during your stay. Whilst the landscape and game viewing is spectacular, the emphasis in these areas is as much on cultural interaction with the Maasai, and walking safaris and night drives, which are not possible within the Serengeti National Park itself. It’s where you can get out of your car, and walk in total safety with its ancient custodians, where you can really start breathing Africa.
Staying in Nomad conservation areas, you’re also helping to protect vital areas bordering the park, and supporting tribes that live cheek by jowl with the wild. Whilst a full day from dawn to dusk can be spent on exciting adventures with your own private four-wheel-drive vehicle and driver/guide, the small wandering camps themselves are sociable because they’re shared, with guests staying in classic bush style.
Each luxury bedtent sits alone on a beautiful patch of Africa, a stroll away from the candlelit canvas mess for safari bonhomie in the soul of the African night. The bathrooms are en-suite, with traditional safari style bucket showers, short drop toilets, and hot and cold water available on demand. All you have to do is arrive in camp at the end of every dramatic day – tired, wired, and dusty – to hot showers, ice filled gin & tonics, and a roaring campfire.
The days end with dinner, stars and a bed tent furnished with all a great adventurer could wish for. A safari that spans both the Loliondo and Serengeti Safari Camps will assure you of the ultimate safari experience.
