"Good but too big for us"

3 nights Arrived 27 Jul 2010
"Migration camp was a very good camp well run and a great setting.

For us it was a tad too big (over 40 people for dinner) with lots of travelling safaris just dropping in and staying for one night. Not so much attention to detail as Klien's and not as personal.

Serengetti National park is a bit frustrating as the drivers cannot leave the road and there are no night drives. Having said that our guide (Moses) was brilliant and in 3 days we saw some great stuff (some of it right by the road). One Lion Kill and one Cheetah (3 cheetah) kill plus some great Leapord, sightings (5 in total).

Another highlight was a walking Safari from the camp up to a nearby hill (Kope) - with crocodile, Hippos and Buffalo on the way.

Child friendly and a good pool and sundeck overlooking the plains" See all these reviews: 9n in Zanzibar; 8n in Tanzania

"Serengeti Migration Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 14 Jul 2009
"In most aspects Migration was excellent, they are outstanding particularly in service. The negative was the kitchen. The food was ok but really only between average to good. As a negative example, one lunch had vegetarian pizza as one of the choices on the menu. It apparently was not very popular and slices of pizza re-appeared two days later in our picnic lunch (although to be fair that was only one item and the lunch also offered chiken, potato salad, green salad and wine) and pizza again in box lunches packed for our plane trip on the next day - ie. by now four day old pizza. The box lunch was actually quite poor in quality of content, the sandwich included was a roll of white bread with a sliced hot dog (which in itself was a left over from a breakfast menu). I understand their drive not to waste food but an item uneaten owing to unpopularity doesn't improve with age.

The guide was really outstanding, he literally spotted a leopard in a tree by seeing just the tail move from 300-400 meters while he was driving. He routinley did things like this in spotting game." See all these reviews: 7n in Tanzania; 4n in Zanzibar

"Serengeti Migration Camp review"

4 nights Arrived 27 Aug 2008
"We have to disagree with Expert Africa's comment re Migration Camp!

Rooms were extremely comforatble, staff friendly and helpful (Jackson and Julius get special mention) and food excellent. Rather than being bland and overcooked we found it excellently cooked, varied and well presented. Picnic lunches were particularly excellent, well above the usual sandwich, boiled egg, fruit and yogurt. We got meats , salads, cheese & biscuits, quiche, drinks and chocolote brownies to die for.

Guides were great - we drove with 2 - but a negative is the 18k road you have to drive every time to enter or leave camp - whilst we saw some excellent game on this road it did get a bit monotonous. Moses looked after us most of the time and was brilliant - he was determined to get us the best sightings!

2 minor negatives;
All laundry is tumble dried - if you don't want your T shirts to shrink you need to wash them by hand in your roon. Also the loo is not private from the bathroom." See all these reviews: 9n in Tanzania
