Tanzania Wilderness Camps were first opened in 2007, when we saw a ‘gap’ for a quality tented safari camp. Being passionate about the bush, and sharing it with the local wildlife in the most un-obtrusive manner, our first camp was well away from the main areas, on the Ngarenanyuki River – back then, the only camp for miles, but nevertheless with good access to prime game-viewing areas around the central Serengeti.
We have since moved (several times over the years) settling in to the area known as Turner’s Springs – a fantastic location, with spectacular views across the plains.
Its sister camp moves from the Ndutu area in the south of the Serengeti eco-system, to the north – following the migration. The camp settles into its temporary home for 3-4 months at a time, cheek by jowl with the migrating herds and their followers.
The camps are run to be “guide friendly“. We look after the guides who use our camps well, so they can do their jobs well – we all come from guiding backgrounds and realise that this can make or break a safari. We encourage guides to host their guests during dinner, and to join them “around the fire” to socialise.
Our camp management and staff are more than happy to arrange for a very early start in the morning, packed breakfasts and lunches, anything that a guide wants to make his guests happy.
