Chaka Camp Serengeti operates off-the-grid and relies on a custom built solar system for its power. Room fabrics are handwoven African designs, and the camp’s furniture and decor were designed and built by artisans in Arusha, Tanzania.
Chaka Camp, designed to be lightweight enough to move seasonally, is located in the Ndutu area from December through March and Northern Serengeti from late May through October.
From December through March, the wildebeest migration moves in and out of the Ndutu area. Ndutu is located in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, just south of Serengeti National Park. Chaka Camp’s location provides easy access to prime game viewing areas around Lakes Ndutu and Masek. In addition to the almost two million wildebeest and zebra that move through the area each year, Ndutu is home to cheetah, lion, giraffe and hundreds of bird species. During February’s calving season, the wildebeest give birth to 8,000 babies a day.
From late May through October, Chaka Camp is located in Northern Serengeti. The camp is close to the Mara River, allowing easy access to several river crossing points in the area. During this time of year, the wildebeest migration is crossing the Mara River back and forth from Tanzania to Kenya. River crossings are common with crocodiles, hippos and large cats scattered throughout the area.
Kiota Camp, our sister camp, opened in May 2015 and is permanently based in Central Serengeti. We recommend booking Kiota Camp in combination with Chaka Camp for a total of 4 – 6 nights in the Serengeti. Central Serengeti offers year-round game viewing and is thought to be one of the best places in Africa to spot large cats.
Chaka Camp moves seasonally and is located in Ndutu from December through March and Northern Serengeti from late May through October. The following activities are available from the camp:
Evening campfires (subject to weather conditions)
Private dining under the stars (subject to availability and weather conditions)
Bush breakfast and bush dinner (subject to availability and weather conditions)
