Accor-backed conservation-focused hotel group, Mantis, has announced its latest addition: the Siringit Migration Camp by Mantis, scheduled to debut in August 2021.
The new mobile camp includes eight luxury guest tents as well as separate dining and lounge tents. The camp will move every few months to follow the migration route of wildlife within the Serengeti National Park and give guests a front row seat to an abundance of wildlife and the Great Migration.
The Serengeti National Park has the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa. During the annual migration thousands of wildebeest and zebras flow from the northern to the southern plains, in a bid to follow the short rains every October and November, and then west and north after the long rains in April, May and June.
Paul Gardiner, CEO of the Mantis group comments, “The great migration is on the bucket-list of many international travellers and we want to make the experience even more momentous by getting our guests as close as possible to the wildlife. We also wanted to ensure that our mobile camps leave the lightest possible eco-footprint without compromising on luxury.
“Our guests play an important role in supporting conservation-led hospitality and the experiences we create for our guests allow them to see first-hand how Mantis offers curated destinations inspired by sustainable adventures. These are experiences where luxury travel and eco-tourism meet.”
The Siringit Migration Camp offers total privacy in the middle of the remote African savannah and guests can embrace the peace of this wilderness completely uninterrupted. As the precise timing of the Serengeti wildebeest migration is entirely dependent upon the rainfall patterns each year, the camp will track the migration moving from north to south to west as follows:
September – October: Northern Serengeti, Siringit Migration Camp – Kogatende
December – March: Southern Serengeti Ngorongoro, Siringit Migration Camp – Ndutu
May – June: Western Corridor, Siringit Migration Camp – Kirawira
Each location has its own airstrip for guest arrivals and departures.
Unlike many mobile camps, Siringit Migration Camp will be built on raised platforms (rather than the more commonly used ground mats) leaving a smaller eco footprint.
Included in the guests’ stay at Siringit Migration Camp are:
- Morning and evening game drives
- Picnic’s, bush lunches and dinners
- Airstrip transfers
- Free Wi-Fi
The Siringit Migration Camp is the latest addition to the Siringit Collection by Mantis, which includes Siringit Serengeti Camp located in the Serengeti National Park and Siringit Villa located near Arusha.
Official rates will be released mid-2021.
