LOCATION

Kiota Camp opened in May 2015 and is permanently based in Central Serengeti. Central Serengeti offers year-round game viewing and is thought to be one of the best places in Africa to spot large cats.

We recommend booking Kiota Camp in combination with our sister camp, Chaka Camp, for a total of 4 – 6 nights in the Serengeti. Chaka Camp is a mobile camp that moves twice a year to follow the wildebeest migration. While KiotaCamp‘s location is ideal for viewing year-round permanent game in the Central Serengeti area, Chaka’s follows the migrating wildebeest and zebra and the many predators that follow them. Chaka is located in Ndutu from December through March and Northern Serengeti from late May through October.
