The camp is located in the great plains of the Serengeti, in the middle of the savanna. Near the camp snakes the river Seronera which drinks all the year the animals living in this area of the park. Predators are numerous to watch for their preys that come to drink there. The solitary leopards perch on the acacias along the river, the lions prefer the rocks to rest in the shade. Serengeti is one of the largest in Tanzania (14763 km²). The name Serengeti is derived from the name Masai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains. It is in this part that the great migration, unique phenomenon in the world, spends part of the year, in search of freshly grown grass, rich in calcium. The migration of some 2 million animals is observable from December to mid-June, and in February the calving takes place.
