Kampi Kampi Serengeti is a small size mobile tented camp moving from northern to southern Serengeti / Ngorongoro Conservation Area accordingly to wildebeest migratory patterns.

From June / July to the end of October the camp is set up in northern Serengeti, specifically in the Mara wedge, on the opposite side of the river than the majority of tented camps in this area. This fantastic remote location is shared with only another camp: Olakira Lamai Camp [also known as Serengeti Mara Camp].
This sector of the park hosts throughout the year many resident species but during these months with herds roaming all around and crossing the river from one side to another while straddling the border between Kenya and Tanzania, it really becomes the best place of Serengeti for migration viewing.

The camp provides a upper-mid level of service and consists of 6 safari tents well spaced out in order to grant an adequate level of privacy. Each tent has a double bed or two twin beds, en suite bathroom with flush loo and running water in basin while hot water for the shower is supplied morning and evening at the time agreed with the camp staff. Electricity is supplied by a silenced generator which is tucked away to ensure that there is no noise pollution. Mobiles and video devices can be charged directly in tent where international adapters are available.

The camp is complemented by the unfailing campfire and by two central tents hosting respectively the dining table and the lounge tent which includes a small library and the bar and by the campfire. Meals can also be served privately under the starry sky. Early morning coffee and tea are served on the private tent verandas.

If we only consider the tents furnishing then we could say that Kampi Kampi is a upper-mid specification tented camp but the service delivered is such that it may instead be rated as a high standard one.

If you wish to stay at this camps be aware you have to book well in advance to get room.

Note: in case of heavy rains it might be impossible to cross the bridge over the Mara River. The camp can be reached from Kogatende airstrip through an alternative way which however can require from 2 up to 3 hours instead than just 30 minutes as usually needed passing by the bridge.
