Mantis, a leading conservation-focused hotel group, has announced the opening of a new mobile camp in Tanzania: The Siringit Migration Camp by Mantis. The mobile camp will move every few months to follow the wildebeest, zebra, Thomson's gazelles and the predators the Great Migration attracts within the Serengeti National Park.

"The Great Migration is known as one of the greatest shows on earth and is on the wish-list of many international travelers," said Mantis CEO Paul Gardiner. "The Siringit Migration Camp by Mantis returns to the roots of safari, where sustainable, intimate, mobile camps move in symbiosis with wildlife. The unique shape of the tents -- octagonal with transparent sides -- is designed to dissolve the division between indoors and outdoors, allowing guests to be closer to nature. We look forward to welcoming guests and offering them the chance to witness nature at its best."

The Siringit Migration Camp by Mantis opens in the Kogatende region (Northern Serengeti) where it will remain until November. The camp will then move to the Ndutu region (Southern Serengeti) reopening on Dec. 15, where it will remain until March 31, 2022, when the herds start their migration north again. Both locations have their own airstrip for guest arrivals and departures. There are daily scheduled flights from Arusha or Seronera to Kogatende, and the airstrip is only a short 10-minute game drive direct to the camp.
The Bedouin style camp has eight luxury guest tents positioned on raised platforms to provide unobstructed views across the Serengeti. Each tent can accommodate up to two guests, while two can be linked to form a family tent which can accommodate up to four guests (two adults and two children). All tents have en suite bathrooms with double vanities. The camp also has a separate dining tent and lounge tent which includes a selection of coffee table books and board games.
Rates start from $600 per person, per night, double. For reservations and more information call: +27 41 404 9300 or email: [email protected]
