Chaka Camp

Chaka Camp is an intimate mobile-tented camp located in the Serengeti ecosystem. The word ‘Chaka’ comes from the word 'kichaka,' which means 'bush' in Swahili.
Chaka Camp operates off-the-grid and relies on a custom built solar system for its power. Room fabrics are hand-woven African designs, and the camp's furniture was commissioned and crafted by artists in Arusha, Tanzania.
With three decades of Tanzanian tourism experience between them, owners Hezron Mbise and Stacy Readal have combined their safari and business backgrounds to create Chaka Camp. Hezron and Stacy welcome you to their camp and invite you to share their passion for Tanzania's people and wildlife. 
Chaka Camp, designed to be lightweight enough to move seasonally, is located in the Ndutu area from December through March. The camp relocates to Central Serengeti from May through to November.
From December through March, the wildebeest migration moves in and out of the Ndutu area. Ndutu is located in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, just south of Serengeti National Park. Chaka Camp's location provides easy access to prime game viewing areas around Lakes Ndutu and Masek. In addition to the almost two million wildebeest and zebra that move through the area each year, Ndutu is home to cheetah, lion, giraffe and hundreds of bird species. During February's calving season, the wildebeest give birth to 8,000 babies a day.
From May through November, Chaka Camp relocates to Seronera in the Central Serengeti. Seronera, located in the heart of Serengeti National Park, offers year-round game viewing and is thought to be one of the best places in Africa to spot large cats. From Seronera it is easy to access others areas of the Serengeti such as the Grumeti River ecosystem, Retina Hippo Pool, Moru Kopjes and Lobo.
