We have great photos of this camp
In the middle of nowhere with a great staff - couldnt do enough for us. Survived a spectacular storm in the middle of the night - and some great sunsets.
George our guide/driver was so much more than a driver - very knowledgable, gracious, patient and just a nice guy. We liked him a lot. The Green camp at Kogatende was excellent (my God it was remote) - time at the Mara will not be forgotten.
Super Serengeti Safari Bush Camp
Unlike the camp in Tarangire, this camp is set in a great location with super views. It's very close to the Mara River, so perfect for catching river crossings at short notice. However, we were surprised to find it was a large campsite with many tents and it was becoming clear that the 'exclusive' and 'personal' experience the camps were promised to offer was far from being the case. It was nice, however, to have our own spacious and comfortable tents this time, each with bedside tables and lights. The bush bathroom was accessed via the back of the tent and the bucket shower and toilet worked just fine. (tip - if you are on the short side, check you can reach to turn on the shower before taking off clothes!!) Showering under the Serengeti sky is an experience not be missed!
The food was very good and plentiful and the staff were attentive. We had our own mess tent.
Our game drives here were the highlight of the whole trip. We were able to watch the wildebeast migration and see several crossings of the Mara River. each day. I didn't think anything would surpass the Crater, but seeing life in the raw in the Serengeti just blew me away. It is stunningly beautiful. We both found it a very humbling experience.
To sum the camp up, as a "wilderness" experience it didn't really live up to the description. This is a permanent camp used by WayoAfrica throughout the year, with many tents close by and clearly visible. It's basically a campsite: had it been advertised as such (with a price to match) that would have been fine, but then we wouldn't have chosen to stay there. On returning from our drives, we could hear lots of noise from other campers, the staff radio playing and, after dinner, there was a lot of noise going on well into the night. We had been looking forward to a close to nature experience, but with so many other people using the site and all the noise, there was no chance of any wildlife coming close to the camp.
Expert Africa comments
This camp, originally named Serengeti Private Mobile Camp, is set up to be a private camp but on a shared camp side. When we first visited only two different groups would use the campsite at any one time at it offered a great wilderness experience. But now up to four can be located there and the camps are usually set up for the season, resulting in a more established feel.
Based on this feedback we have renamed the property Serengeti Green Camp and updated the write-up to more accurately describe the current experience it offers. We are sorry that this camp did not offer what the travellers had expected and hope that by updating our information we will avoid this happening again.
Serengeti Private Mobile Camp review
I rate this camp as excellent. Our guide was great and knowledgeable as we found out by dragging info out of him. Maybe could talk a bit more. May need to interact with clients a bit more but appreciate differiung client demands. Great food and staff.
Could have done with a debrief as we arrived but were stuffed!
Could have been done at morning breakfast but aware that Cliff had been ill.
Tents a bit small..
leg room in vehicles limiting.
