Serengeti National Park Accommodation

A myriad of accommodation options is available in Serengeti National Park. From adventurous mobile tented camps following the Great Migration to family-oriented lodge style accommodations and anything in between, you can be sure to find the perfect spot just for you.

The Serengeti is without a doubt Tanzania’s most beloved tourist attraction, drawing tens of thousands of tourists from around the world each year. When planning your Serengeti safari, the sheer number of options can be overwhelming.

Not only is the massive Serengeti National Park full of accommodation options, these options have different strengths and weaknesses dependent on the time of year you’re visiting. We here at Dreamland Safaris know the Serengeti like the backs of our hands and can always recommend the best option for your safari, but here is our ultimate guide to the many Serengeti safari lodges and camps you can choose for your ultimate Tanzanian safari.
When and Where to Stay on the Serengeti
The Serengeti National Park covers a truly massive area of land, with different corners of the park offering up wildly different game drive and accommodation experiences. Dependent on the time of year you are visiting, different areas of the park offer up something different.

The movements of the Wildebeest Migration, arguably the Greatest Show on Earth, further complicate things. If you’re hoping to track this massive movement of wildlife, you’ll want to be right at the heart of the action.

Below, we’ve broken down the best regions to stay in during each portion of the year.
January – March: Ndutu Region
Straddling both the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Areas, the Ndutu region lies in the southern Serengeti and is home to the Wildebeest Migration’s calving season. While the calving season does not offer up the thrills of river crossings, it does present a remarkable opportunity to see the Wildebeest Migration in its entirety.

Tens of thousands of young Wildebeest are born during this period, and predators look to pick off an easy meal in the green and verdant expanses of this gorgeous corner of the park.

Lodges in the Ndutu region tend to be seasonal, closing their doors from April until October of each year. Camping is not possible in the Ndutu region.
April – May: Grumeti/Western Corridor
April and May are traditionally the rainy season in Tanzania, which presents a unique opportunity for visitors to experience luxury lodges at a fraction of the price. While the Wildebeest Migration begins making its way north towards Kenya in earnest, the best game-viewing can be found in the Grumeti region of the Serengeti National Park.

Sometimes called the ‘Western Corridor’, this corner of the park is home to the Grumeti River. This is the first major obstacle in the path of the Wildebeest Migration and visitors can hope to see a river crossing as the herd attempts to cross the river.

For those not wishing to spend a fortune on their safari, April and May also see luxury lodges across Tanzania lower their prices substantially. While tented camps are not ideal in the wet conditions, luxury lodges such as Serena, Sopa, and even the Four Seasons reduce their prices considerably at this time of year. Camping is definitely not recommended in the wet and muddy conditions.
June: Central Serengeti
June marks the beginning of peak safari season in the Serengeti, and the Seronera region at the heart of the park is where you’ll find the best game viewing at this time of year.

Due to the large number of lions, leopards, and cheetahs who call Seronera home, the Central Serengeti is worth visiting no matter what time of year your safari is.

In June, however, the area comes alive as the Wildebeest Migration continues on its way north. For those wishing to camp, Seronera Campsite offers budget-friendly accommodation.
July – September: Northern Serengeti
The most popular time of year to visit the Serengeti is definitely during the months of July, August, and September. With the Wildebeest Migration approaching the Mara River and the Kenyan border, the high drama of a river crossing becomes increasingly likely.

A number of seasonal camps and lodges open their doors for these months, catering to those who want to be as close to the action as possible.

Combined with sometime in the Central Serengeti, a visit to the Northern Serengeti should be the ultimate goal of any adventurer looking to witness the Wildebeest Migration. The area is also serviced by the Lobo campsite for those on a tight budget.
October – November: Central Serengeti
With the Wildebeest Migration mostly taking place in the Maasai Mara region of Kenya during these months, the Serengeti experiences a little bit of a downturn in terms of visitors. This shouldn’t put you off, however, as the Serengeti is worth a visit at any time of year.

Large herds of elephants, giraffes, antelopes, and zebra call the park home throughout the year, and big cats remain regardless of where the Wildebeest Migration is.

As the Wildebeest Migration begins its movement back into the south during these months, there’s every chance you’ll catch the herd without the usual crowds. The Seronera/Central Serengeti region of the park is worth a visit at this time of year, and boasts some of the park’s most luxurious and unique lodge and tented camp experiences.
December: Ndutu Region
The Wildebeest Migration comes full circle as it returns to the Ndutu region in December. While Christmas and New Year’s are typically busier and more expensive than other times of year, it’s a fantastic time of year to visit Tanzania and end/begin your year on a unique note.
Where to Stay in Ndutu (December – March)
The Ndutu region is home to the Wildebeest Migration’s calving season and presents a fantastic opportunity to see the entire herd in one place before it sets off. Lodges and camps in the Ndutu region can sit in either the Serengeti National Park or the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, so it’s important to know where your game drives will be taking place. Entering both parks means paying two park entry fees. Lodges in this region are typically only open from November through until March.
Budget Lodges in Ndutu
Due to the seasonal nature of the region, there are no public campsites available in either the Serengeti or Ngorongoro sides of Ndutu. This can make planning a budget visit to the Serengeti tough at this time of year, but a night in Ndutu is definitely recommended.
Medium Cost Lodges and Camps in Ndutu
It’s entirely possible to spend a night or two in the Ndutu region without breaking the bank. A number of family-friendly lodges and camps open up each year to welcome visitors from around the world.
