I spent 2 nights at Ubuntu with my husband in the southern part of the Serengeti. The camp was fantastic. We weren't sure what to expect from a tented mobile camp but can honestly say it was more comfortable then the hotels we stayed at in Tanzania. The location was great- one morning we woke up and there were giraffes about 200 yards away from our tent. The next morning it was zebras. There was plenty of game nearby including a pack of the rarely seen wild dogs, as well as lions, and cheetahs just a bit further. The food at Ubuntu was also excellent and they accommodated our dietary restrictions very well. Also to note was the superb and friendly service. Everything you needed was taken care of quickly and with great care. Mark, the manager, and DiDi stood out especially.
During this trip we had an Asilia driver/guide for our entire Tanzanian trip and we stayed at 2 Asilia properties (Ubuntu and Matemwe Lodge). Our guide, Aflred, was top notch and can be credited for elevating our trip experience from wonderful to one of the most memorable in our lives (and we do our fair share of traveling). He shared his immense knowledge of the game life, the serengeti, Tanzanian culture, and everything else we could have wanted to know. He was consistently outstanding with his customer service and had a great sense of humor. He is highly recommended and definitely worth making a special request for. The other Asilia accomdation we stayed at, Matemwe, was also a fantastic. Asilia has definitely earned our trust when it comes to providing a top notch Tanzanian experience.

- Ubuntu Migration Camp stops at three spectacular locations across the north, west and south of the Serengeti, following in the tracks of massive herds of wildebeest as they cross the vast plains of the Serengeti in an ancient migration cycle. Shadowing the wildebeest's every move, Ubuntu Camp uncovers fascinating and unexplored corners of this great wilderness, ensuring that first-class game viewing is never far away. With their unwavering focus on keeping pace with the migration, Ubuntu's guides have an enviable reputation for bringing this remarkable natural phenomenon to life. The camp itself is intimate and personal, and the seven spacious tented suites epitomise traditional East African safari charm. ... more less
