Dunia, in Tanzania’s central Serengeti, is well placed for wildlife spotting. During the annual Great Migration, guests can watch giant herds of wildebeest moving through the area right from camp.
Dunia is in the central Serengeti, part of Tanzania’s famous Serengeti National Park, surrounded by golden savannah. Twice per year, this area sees millions of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles passing through on their constant migration around the Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara. If you’re lucky, you won’t even need to leave camp to watch the vast herds grazing.
The camp is ideally placed to explore three excellent game viewing areas: Seronera, the Moru Kopjes and the southern Serengeti plains. The Seronera River is a gathering place for lots of wildlife, providing ample opportunity for spotting predators in action. The Moru Kopjes are a cluster of old granite boulders, favoured by big cats that like to use them as lookout points. You might even spot the rare black rhino. The southern plains are covered in lush grass between December and May, perfect for calving wildebeest.
We have seven spacious and airy tents, each with a king-sized bed and an en suite bathroom with a hot-water shower and flushing toilet. We also have a larger tent with separate bedrooms for families. Spend siesta time on your private deck looking out over the Serengeti plains.
A typical day on safari
We start the day early to find animals when they are most active, heading out on safari around dawn and again at dusk. Timing varies according to the season, but guests can expect the following from typical day on safari.
Start your day bright and early with a wake-up call and tea or coffee. Enjoy breakfast before departure for your morning game drive (or have it packed as a picnic to take with you). You'll arrive back in camp mid-morning, with a chance to freshen up before lunch.
After a leisurely lunch, enjoy siesta. Read a book or just relax and enjoy the views from your private viewing deck. Refuel with afternoon tea and then depart for your afternoon/evening game drive with sundowners. You’ll be back in time for drinks at the bar and dinner – the perfect chance to unwind after a long day in the bush. If you have a private vehicle, you can plan your day with your guide.
