Chaka Camp Serengeti
Chaka Camp is a semi-permanent camp located in the Serengeti ecosystem. With just ten tents, Chaka – meaning ‘bush’ in Swahili – offers an authentic and intimate bush experience in the middle of the Serengeti wilderness. Chaka Camp follows the wildebeest migration, covering hundreds of kilometers as it moves seasonally around the Serengeti.
Each member of our well-trained team is eager to make your stay at Chaka as relaxing as possible. Their personalized service and attention to detail promise to make your stay in the bush unforgettable.
With three decades of Tanzanian tourism experience between them, Chaka Camp’s owners have combined their safari and business backgrounds to create Chaka Camp. We welcome you to our camp and invite you to share our passion for Tanzania’s people and wildlife. Karibuni Sana!
Chaka Camp 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.
