Flycatcher Camps

Experience Africa's nature up close

A stay in a tented camp in the national parks of Tanzania is one of the main attractions of a safari. It is an exclusive experience to be very close to nature for a few days and nights.

Our seasonal camps «Flycatcher Lagarja Camp» and «Flycatcher Bologonja Camp» are located for a few months where the wildlife in the Serengeti National Park and the neighboring Ngorongoro Conservation Area is most promising. We set up the camps on «special campsites» within the national parks, in exclusive locations in the middle of the best game drive areas.

Our permanent camp «Flycatcher Ruaha Camp» in Ruaha National Park in the south of Tanzania is located by the Ruaha River. It is a very quiet camp and ideally situated for game drives in various directions.

All camps consist of five to eight comfortable guest tents, a large dining tent, a kitchen tent and accommodation for staff and driver-guides.

  • Safari chairs in front of the tents invite you to relax and enjoy the view.

Campfire

In the evening, you can share your impressions of the day around a cosy campfire and marvel at the starry sky.

At night, you can listen to the sounds of animals and nature instead of the familiar sounds of a busy hotel.

Camp-Crew

The camp staff work in front of and behind the scenes to ensure that everything runs smoothly at the camp and that our guests are well looked after. The experienced team consists of 6 to 8 people (chef, kitchen helper, waiters, tent stewards and driver for the transport vehicle).

Sustainability

The seasonal camps are set up in the national parks for a few months at a time. The material is brought from Arusha in small trucks and at the end of the season everything disappears again without a trace. The occupied spot is returned to nature. Apart from an abandoned fireplace and some crushed grass, there will be nothing left to see.
