Ubuntu is a small upper-mid specification tented camp moving from the southern Serengeti plains in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to the Serengeti western corridor and to the northern Serengeti Mara. The camp is normally located in Northern Serengeti from the end of July to mid of November. This sector of the park hosts throughout the year many resident species but, from July to October with the wildebeest migration 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 and even if Ubuntu is not scheduled to be set up very close to the river [about 50 minutes far away] it still remain a good option to gain access to this area. When booking Ubuntu Mara we do not plan the early morning game drive to the river coming back to the camp for breakfast instead we deem it is preferable to leave the camp early in the morning with packed breakfast and return back for lunch and some relaxation ... unless you wish to spend the whole day out ...

The camp consists of 8 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 solar panels and accumulated into batteries for night supply however there are no sockets in the rooms and mobiles and video devices need to be charged at the lounge.

Ubuntu is complemented by two mess and lounge tents [each one serving four tents] and by the unfailing campfire.
Meals can be served privately under the starry sky.

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