Some camps are set in magnificent surroundings but fixed: others offer game viewing on the move, at the expense of five-star facilities. As its name implies, Roving Bushtops offers the best of both worlds.
The camps main base sits proudly in the heart of the Central Serengeti, in the Seronera valley. Not only does our superb location provide exceptional year-round game viewing for our guests, but the migration also comes to us in November/December and we can reach the migration herds on a half or full-day game drive till around the end of June/beginning of July before they reach the northern Serengeti.
In between (end of January to mid-April), Roving Bushtops follows the migration South to Kusini where we sit temporarily for about three months. Ensuring our guests get high chances of seeing the migration birthing season after which the camp moves back to our spot in central Serengeti to catch the herd before they reach Serengeti Bushtops which offers a ringside seat for the world-famous river crossings, which take place in the northern Serengeti.
Because Roving Bushtops is not fenced off, we enjoy direct access to wildlife and the Bush. Of course, this means we need to take particular care. Our guests are asked to stay vigilant at all times, being escorted by local security staff when moving between tents in the early mornings, evenings and night.
Despite being in the Serengeti, we are easy to reach. Regular flights to our local airstrips leave from Nairobi (JKIA or Wilson), Kogatende, Lake Manyara, Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Dar Es Salaam and Zanzibar.
You can visit Roving Bushtops as your sole safari destination or combine the camp with a stay at Serengeti Bushtops (about an hour’s flight away). A combined stay is ideal.
Alternatively, Mara Bushtops in Kenya can be added to both of our Tanzanian venues to complete the full Bushtops set!
