Seeing the Big Five up close and personal is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, regardless of how many instances you will get to experience it. Luxury safaris in Tanzania are an experience to savour and a number of camps will make for an unforgettable experience. In this case here are nine unforgettable camps to see the Big Five in Tanzania.

Dunia Camp

Nine Unforgettable camps to see the Big Five in Tanzania

One of the best camps in Tanzania found in central Serengeti is Dunia Camp. What makes it stand out is its remoteness, which is enticing for the Big Five. However, with the freedom the animals have, it’s best to be with a guide or tour group.

Namiri Camp

Nine Unforgettable camps to see the Big Five in Tanzania

Strategically located in the remote plains of the eastern Serengeti, Namiri Camp is the best place to see the Big Five, especially the cats. In fact, since the camp banned poaching, the big cat numbers have increased, so chances of spotting them will be very good.

Kwihala Camp

Nine Unforgettable camps to see the Big Five in Tanzania

Ten percent of the world’s population of lion is in Kwihala. This means that when you visit Tanzania, it’s not surprising to see prides consisting of more than 20. The best part is that Kwihala is full of life with many other species of animals such as jackal, hyena and wild dog.

Jabali Ridge

Nine Unforgettable camps to see the Big Five in Tanzania

Jabali ridge is a goldmine, teeming with wildlife, where predators and prey roam freely in the wild. Action packed days are guaranteed – elephant and rhino are so close, that you’ll be sure to feel their power.

Kimondo Camp

Nine Unforgettable camps to see the Big Five in Tanzania

Located in northern Serengeti, Kimondo Camp is full of buffalo and rhino. With the help of a guide, adrenaline-filled campers get the unique opportunity for an up-close and personal Big Five experience.

Oliver’s Camp and Little Oliver’s

Nine Unforgettable camps to see the Big Five in Tanzania

Boasting a remarkable number of big cats and huge herds of elephant and buffalo, Oliver’s Camp and Little Oliver’s offers high adventure experiences. By use of a guide, walking safaris and fly camping is possible in this game-rich wilderness.

Olakira Camp

Nine Unforgettable camps to see the Big Five in Tanzania

When looking for a great wildebeest migration meeting with the bonus of a Big Five encounter, Olakira camp in Northern Serengeti is the place to be. With the action-packed scenes so prolific, the experience will stay with you for a lifetime.

Sayari Camp

Nine Unforgettable camps to see the Big Five in Tanzania

The award-winning Sayari Camp is revered for extraordinary wildlife sightings, including the Big Five. Set on the unspoiled plains of the northern Serengeti, close to the famous Lamai Wedge, Sayari gives you easy access to the Mara River and multiple river crossing points.

Ubuntu Camp

Nine Unforgettable camps to see the Big Five in Tanzania

For quiet moments into the night with the wild, Ubuntu does it best. The most outstanding part is that you don’t have to go far to see the Big Five in action.
