Kimondo Camp

Kimondo (previously known as Olakira Lamai Camp) is a mobile camp which moves with the migration, splitting the year between the north and south of the Serengeti, just like the millions of wildebeest which move with it. But this is certainly not camping, as you know it. The traditional safari tents are spacious, with either king size or twin beds and large verandahs for afternoon naps. The en-suite bathrooms have flush loos, hot and cold running water and the traditional safari bucket shower. Meals are taken outside, either under the stars or in the dining tent. The mess tent is full of comfy places to relax and books to browse. There’s a good reason for choosing a mobile camp over a permanent lodge: the migration is a transitory beast, forever on the move. And as the herds of wildebeest travel on their never-ending circuit of the Serengeti, so Kimondo gives guests a front row seat to the action.
