Intimate Camp Zebra
Visitors to Tanzania wishing to experience the miracle of the Great Wildebeest Migration, which is reputed to be the largest mass movement of animals on our planet, need look no further than Intimate Camp Zebra. With spacious and comfortable accommodation, Intimate Camp Zebra is a seasonal camp which has been especially designed to closely follow the migrating animals as they make their way around the Serengeti National Park.
‘Intimate Camp Zebra’ is named after the Zebra which follow the Wildebeest during their world-famous annual migration. Like the animal it is named after, the camp follows the Wildebeest to the Northern part of the Serengeti National Park between July and November and to the Southern part of the Serengeti eco-system from December until March. The camp is closed from April until the end of June each year.
‘Intimate Camp Zebra’ has been operating in the Serengeti for the best part of two decades. As a result, the company has fostered very close working relationships with the parks authorities and this in turn has resulted in the camp always being allocated the very best seasonal campsites available, both in Kogatende as well as in Ndutu
The camp consists of 10 accommodation tents to include two 2-bedroomed family units, each of which can be used for single, double or triple occupancy. Each sleeping tent consists of a bedroom area, dressing area and ensuite shower and toilet. As an added convenience, each tent is provided with electricity for lighting as well as for charging mobile telephones, cameras, tablets, laptop computers or any other electronic devices our guests may carry with them. This electricity is harvested from the sun’s rays via a solar system.
The lounge and dining tents, which are new for the 2023 season, are comfortably laid out for rest and relaxation when guests are taking a break from exciting game drives. Coffee table books, board games, a writing bureau and wireless internet connectivity are all provided to ensure that their every need is catered for. Evenings are spent around the all-important campfire exchanging stories about the day’s events and making plans for the days ahead.
The activities which will be available for you to enjoy whilst with us will be dictated to a large extent by the location of the camp at the time of your visit. Activities which are normally available include game drives to view the spectacular array of wildlife, birdlife and nature to be found in the Serengeti and early morning balloon safaris which allow you a spectacular birds-eye view of your surroundings.
Intimate Camp Zebra is geared up to be able to provide full-service bush breakfasts, lunches and evening sundowners. Our guests tell us that there is something magical about rounding a corner on a track and finding a sumptuous meal spread out waiting for them, particularly when the meal has been arranged as a surprise!
Between July and the Middle of November, the camp is located in Northern Serengeti National Park close by the Mara River where the magnificent spectacle of Wildebeest crossings can be viewed. These crossings are among the very best wildlife experiences to be had anywhere in the world.
Between the middle of December and the end of March, the camp is located in the Ndutu area in Southern Serengeti Ecosystem where our guests are able to witness firsthand the birthing season when literally hundreds of thousands of baby wildebeest are born.
This full circuit enables our guests not only to better understand the Great Wildebeest Migration, but also to share in the many other wonderful experiences to be enjoyed in the Serengeti National Park.

What our camp guests say
My family and I have recently returned from Safari and whilst every place we stayed offers good service, Zebra Camp stands head and shoulders above the rest. The setting was just perfect. The camp is well thought out and very sympathetic to its surroundings.
Our family of five, with two children aged 10 and 14, spent three nights at this cozy and comfortable camp. The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating to our requests. The food was great, with three-course meals at lunch and dinner and we were surprised with an anniversary cake on our last night, which was delicious!
When we arrived in the Serengeti after our last 2 days near the Ngorogoro crater, I was pleasantly surprised to see the nomadic Camp Zebra. The four safari tents that we would occupy for our group were well spaced out and inside we had a comfortable bed, flush toilet, shower and plenty of space and charm.
