The opportunity to witness the Serengeti’s great wildebeest migration – one of Africa’s most awe-inspiring occurrences – with unimaginable proximity to nature, is now offered by Newmark Hotels, Residences, Reserves & Lodges.
The distinguished hotel property group has acquired Serengeti Explorer Camp. which changes location within Serengeti National Park twice a year, following the masses of wildebeest and other animals. Newmark will officially take over the ownership and management in April, adding to its portfolio of top-end hotels, reserves, residences and lodges in Africa.
The camp comprises 12 spacious, private tents, each offering ‘glamping’ accommodation, and are ideally suited to both couples and families. To mark the beginning of a new chapter, Newmark will be carrying out a soft refurbishment on the existing accommodation by introducing new décor and fittings. The overhaul is set to be complete by July, and will include the introduction of neutral tones, wooden features and African-inspired patterns, which perfectly complement the camp’s striking surroundings in each of its two locations.
From 15 December to 31 March, the camp is located in the Ndutu region on the park’s border, near to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. From 1 June to 31 October the camp is situated in the Lobo region in the northern part of the park, closer to the Kenyan border,
Given the migratory nature of the Serengeti Explorer Camp, it allows for unmatched game viewing opportunities, which can be enjoyed by safari vehicle or hot air balloon. Ensuring that children have an equally thrilling experience at the camp, the Rafiki Explorer Club is offered as an added value to families travelling with chidren aged six to 15.
