Dunia Tented Camp

Glamping in the bush! This small, high quality semi-permanent camp is an excellent option at any time, but if you are in this area of the Serengeti from about May to June you may see the massive wildebeest herds move through on their way up between the short grass plains and the Mara.

Asilia’s Dunia Camp is a beautiful tented camp nestled into a flat-topped acacia woodland. Elegantly restrained luxury at its best, it’s the perfect base from which to explore central Serengeti and the southern plains.  If you’re looking for something rather special away from the crowds, look no further – Dunia offers a lovely, authentic safari experience. Think weathered wood, elegant linens, brass hurricane lanterns, leather armchairs and silver service dinners under the stars. It’s simple, but very well done.

All of this is set in a serene location at Moru Kopjes, where big cats step out onto rocky outcrops to look for prey, and the Seronera River encourages large populations of plains animals. From May to June (and sometimes November to December as they return south), this often becomes the hub of migration activity, but the area around Dunia is home to a wealth of resident wildlife all year round, and even black rhino are sometimes spotted here.

Times to Go

This is a good year-round wildlife destination, with the migration usually passing through from abut May to June, and possibly again November to December.

Dunia Tented Camp rooms

Décor is tranquil and each of the 8 tented rooms is dressed in cream and neutral colours.

A king size bed (or twin beds) is accompanied by safari style chairs and a day bed from which to observe the wildlife from the comfort of your room.

The front of the tent can be zipped off to form a porch area.

One of the tents is larger and has separate bedrooms to accommodate up to 5 family members.

All tents have an en-suite bathroom with flushing loo and safari style bucket shower.

Twiga the giraffe likes this because…

“The team here endeavours to leave no traces behind when the camp moves on, and strives to be carbon neutral, using solar power where possible. Any fossil-fuel emissions are offset through a forestation programme. Asilia, the company that owns the camp, integrates sustainability and responsibility into all levels of their operations.

And don’t forget … for every booking we get, Tanzania Specialists plants trees in deforested areas of Africa through The Travel Forest, and we back The Tribes Foundation’s conservation and social projects.
