Positioned to face the sparkling African sunrise, Dunia Camp looks out over the lush plains of the Mbalageti River valley. During the months of May and June herds of wildebeests stream northwest, past the camp, before visiting again whilst heading south in November and December.
South of the camp, the impressive Moru Kopjes dot the grasslands - these vast granite rock formations are often visited by some of the Serengeti's elusive black rhinos.
Strung along a shady tree line, this permanent camp consists of eight en-suite tents. Wildlife wanders freely through the unfenced area, whilst the tents sit on raised, wooden platforms - perfect for surveying the surrounding landscape. Fanning out either side of the camp's main area, these beautifully appointed canvas tents offer spacious, comfortable accommodation that remains immersed in the natural environment.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Buzzing with the intimacy of a small-camp atmosphere, Dunia’s central tent combines a bar, restaurant, lounge, library and veranda. Offering beautiful views out over the Mbalageti River valley, its veranda faces the camp’s main attraction – the wildlife-rich grassland plains. And as the sun rises over the Serengeti, this is the place to be. Breakfast is served on the edge of the veranda, perfectly positioned to appreciate the slowly growing beauty of this rising fiery orb.
Well situated for accessing the Seronera area, the southern Serengeti and the Moru Kopjes, Dunia Camp is an excellent hub for exploration by game vehicle. Big cats are frequently spotted, whilst nearby areas offer the chance to spot the elusive black rhino, arguably the Serengeti’s most sought-after inhabitant. And as an alternative to four-wheeled game tracking, the camp also provides the opportunity to lift off in a hot air balloon and float low across the surrounding landscape.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Aware of its position at the heart of one of the world’s most precious ecosystems, Dunia Camp has made an effort to play its part in preserving this area for future generations. Since late 2009, the camp has been carbon neutral – a reflection of its commitment to sustainable tourism in the Serengeti.
