this, as well as all other Asilia camps where we stayed were amazing in every sense of the word. The food, the service, etc. was top notch. This camp moves over the course of the year so obviously cant be compared to some that are more permanent, but it provides a great safari experience.

Staying at Ubuntu Camp was like joining an extended family with people from different parts of the world. The staff made sure everyone felt comfortable. Emanuel was our guide and upon greeting us at the airstrip asked, what we would like to see and we said a wildebeest river crossing so he took us by the river on the way...

We stayed in the northern part of the Serengeti in this beautiful mobile camp that moves with the migration. Ubuntu is part of the Asilia Africa group. We arrived in the Serengeti at Kogatende airstrip where Asilia has a tent set up, ensuring smooth entrance into the national park, which is really a plus. The camp is beautiful and very...

I struggle to think how our stay could have been any better - I didn't want to leave! The tents are incredibly comfortable and they have provided everything you could possibly need - a flush toilet, sink with running water, solar powered lights, bug spray, soap, shampoo, lotion, plenty of towels and drinking water. When you want a shower, they...

A mobile camp provides optimum opportunity to experience the wildebeest river crossing and Ubuntu did not disappoint. The staff is superb on all counts. Wonderful service, great food, and optimum wildlife sightings, including a huge river crossing. The guides are top notch, get to know you and ask what you're especially wanting to see and experience. They make the game...

Wow! We arrived in Arusha and were escorted with a guide from Asilia. His name was Venant. He was incredibly knowledgeable, gracious and welcoming to his country.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ubuntu Migration Camp stops at three spectacular locations across the north, west and south of the Serengeti, following in the tracks of massive herds of wildebeest as they cross the vast plains of the Serengeti in an ancient migration cycle. Shadowing the wildebeest's every move, Ubuntu Camp uncovers fascinating and unexplored corners of this great wilderness, ensuring that first-class game viewing is never far away. With their unwavering focus on keeping pace with the migration, Ubuntu's guides have an enviable reputation for bringing this remarkable natural phenomenon to life. The camp itself is intimate and personal, and the seven spacious tented suites epitomise traditional East African safari charm. ... more   less
