Great Migration Camps Safaris


At Great Migration Camps, we have drawn inspiration from the pioneering safari days of old to recreate an experience that gets you right into the very heart of the incredible bio-diversity that exists there in the Serengeti.

Set against the backdrop of the great wildebeest migration, our completely mobile, self-sufficient and environmentally-friendly camp can travel anywhere in the Serengeti depending on the time of year and the stage and location of the migration, giving you a front row set to one of Mother Nature’s greatest events. It was scientist Anthony R. E. Sinclair who described the Serengeti as “the world’s greatest wildlife region” and Great Migration Camps is expertly positioned to take you right into the heart of it.

With a combined experience of over 40 years in the African bush and knowledge of the wildlife, geography, geology and history of the Serengeti and surrounding areas, join us for a truly unforgettable safari in one of the world’s premier places to view and experience African wildlife.


The Great Wildebeest Migration happens 365 days a year

but we’re the only ones that can guarantee you’ll see it

because we take you to the frontlines of the Wildebeest Migration

and we leave no trace

Born and raised during the wilder days of South Africa’s Kruger National Park, Carel grew up at one with his natural surroundings, eventually becoming a safari guide and camp manager in east Africa for more than 10 years. His professional guiding career has taken him to many corners of the African continent including two years based in the Serengeti where he intimately learnt the history, terrain, wildlife and eco-systems of the region while understanding and documenting the science and rationale behind one of nature’s greatest events; the great wildebeest migration.
Carel has also worked as business development manager at Safari365, East and Central Africa manager at Discover Africa and was the founder and creator behind HerdTracker, the popular online resource which tracks the migration.
