Wilderness Usawa

A luxury mobile tented camp in Tanzania’s wild Serengeti

Imagine an endless horizon. Powder blue skies stretching over the grassland as far as the eye can see… an abundance of wildlife; grazing, drinking, breeding. Moving as one. Every species in the Serengeti lives in perfect harmony with the one beside it. It is this balance, ‘usawa’ in Kiswahili, that ensures this phenomenal ecosystem functions in perfect symbiosis. Always moving. Always changing. Always in balance.

The seasonal migration moves throughout the year across the length and breadth of Serengeti National Park. Though reasonably predictable, herd movements are dictated by rain and tend to migrate from the south in a north-westerly direction, before making their way up north around September. From there, the journey begins back to the south. It is along these routes that Wilderness Usawa moves.

Mobile, dynamic, luxurious, the Wilderness Usawa Serengeti experience offers maximum action without compromising on comfort. In close proximity to wildlife, but set away from the high density tourist spots, the exquisite architecture and mindful design of Wilderness Usawa Serengeti’s tented camp invites a more remote and private East African experience.

Intimate, exclusive, and light on the Earth, Wilderness Usawa Serengeti is made up of two mobile camps which accommodate 12 guests each, in six luxurious safari tents. Each tent is tastefully finished, equipped with an en-suite bathroom, personal coffee bar and safari-style furnishings, while the open-plan main area opens out over the plains, with classic Serengeti views in every direction.

Usawa Serengeti experiences

Immerse yourself in the wild ways of the Serengeti. On early morning game drives, watch the sun rise over the Serengeti’s golden savannah, illuminating thousands of wildebeest and zebra grazing in the plains. Lace up your boots for a guided walk, from camp into the savannah. When the sun sets, turn your attention to the skies as the stars appear, as beautiful and plentiful as the herds below.
