Chaka camp is the best camp from where to catch the wild life action. It is a mobile camp following the wildebeest migration. It is beautifully maintained and will provide you with nothing short of 5 star luxury. Locations are mind blowing. We stayed with them in Ndutu and I fell in love with the place. Staff is excellent; very...

We spent two nights at Chaka Camp in the Ndutu area in February 2017. This is a very useful, nice equipped camp. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The meals were excellent and also the special diet for my wife was carefully prepared. So we felt very comfortable and enjoyed our stay. Ahsante sana! Kwa herini.

This is a great place in the Serengeti. I didn't know a tent camp could deliver such a comfort & service. The people were so nice, the food was great (remember that we are in the middle of nowhere), our tent was great with a great comfort. I wish I was still there.

We had the pleasure to spend 2 nights at Chaka Camp (14, 15-th of Feb. 2017), while the camp was at Ngorongoro Conservation Area, not far from Lake Ndutu. Can not think of anything that could be done better - very comfortable and specious Meru-style tents, great food, nice dining and lounge rooms. There was even a satellite Internet connection....

My girlfriend and I stayed 2 nights in Chaka camp at the end of January 2017. Although the wildebeest migration was not around the camp made our stay unforgettable. Those 2 nights gave us a break from camping safari and were just perfect. The rooms (luxury tents) are spatious and beautiful. The staff makes your experience very special by taking...

We stayed at Chaka camp for several days and were greeted by the camp workers with a song. The tents were awesome with plenty of space, flush toilets and warm showers. The food was great and the people were very friendly. Also there was a bar with good prices. There was internet access, but it was not very good, but...

My wife and I went to Tanzania and Zanzibar for our honeymoon. Our experience at Chaka Camp (and its’ sister camp Kiota Camp) were by far, the best part of our trip. The campsite was beautiful. Our tent was phenomenal with an indoor bathroom and shower. The food was exquisite. The staff was helpful and provided amazing customer service. We...

This is the third of three camps we stayed in during our visit to Tanzania and they were all excellent. Room, view, staff, food I can't overstate how much we enjoyed our experience. This camp was in Northern Serengeti and the time of year we were there the smaller southern migration was going on, a great time to visit!

When we arrived greeted with a hot towel and drink. We then went to the reception tent for a briefing. This was the last night before the camp was being taken down and move as usual in order to follow the animal migrations. Food, accommodations, service was excellent.

Can't recommend more, staying in Chaka was really like being at home, embraced with nature and wild animals, enjoyed everything with the family members. David was a very friendly and professional manager, shared his understanding and experience. All the staff there were also very nice, they took good care of us. They remembered everything we told them, at night even...

Thank you so much for your kind review, Lynn! We are so happy to hear that you had a fantastic experience overall for a very reasonable price! We would absolutely welcome you again...perhaps next time to the location in the south (Ndutu) to see the migration in a different area? Karibu tena!
