A semi-permanent camp in the stunning wilds of the Serengeti, Chaka Camp provides an authentic and intimate bush experience.
This luxurious take on the classic safari tent camp consists of ten en suite canvas tent. Seven double tents accommodate up to two people and three family tents can house a family of four. Each tent enjoys the creature comforts of running water, bush showers, and flush toilets. Except, the luxury goes one step further by providing a wardrobe and writing desk. Chaka Camp works off-the-grid and utilizes 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. Guests can relax and take in the beauty of either the Ndutu area or Northern Serengeti on their own private, shaded verandah while enjoying their tea or coffee.
Like modern day Bedouins, the camp follows the migration of the Wildebeest. In December through March, it is located in the Ndutu area in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Ndutu is home to cheetah, lion, giraffe and hundreds of bird species. From late May through October, Chaka Camp is situated in Northern Serengeti. The camp lies close to the Mara River, allowing easy access to several river crossing points in the area. During this time of year, the wildebeest migration crosses the Mara River back and forth from Tanzania to Kenya. It’s also an excellent place to spot crocodiles, hippos and large cats as they cross the river.
