The magnificent Serengeti Sojourn Mobile Camp has announced a new location for its second home. After years of opening in the Tanzania’s Lobo region every June, the luxury mobile camp is now making Togoro 1 (there are 3 camps in the area) its second home base.
Like its name suggests, the Serengeti Sojourn Mobile Camp is a migrational camp which has a home base during particular times of the year to follow the Great Migration. The camp is stationed in the Ndutu region from December to March in the South of the Serengeti National Park and, in the past, would have opened in the Lobo region between June and October. Now, after careful consideration and research, the camp shall open in the Togoro region, which offers incredible sightings not only of the Great Migration, but of the big cats, including a local super pride of lion.
Why is the new Togoro location of particular interest?
The new location, specifically at Togoro 1, is a 45-minute game drive from the Seronera airstrip or a 25-minute game drive from the Lobo airstrip, which means it’s very accessible. Migration herds spend ample time in the area on their way further north into Kogatende. Togoro is ideally located within the migration corridor, so the herds will pass by and graze in the surrounding fertile grasslands and savannahs.
The new location means that Serengeti Sojourn now has premium accessibility to the main regions of Lobo, Central Serengeti and Kogatende. Once the migration has moved further north, the mobile camp will offer full-day game-drive experiences to track the wildlife all the way to the Mara River to witness the jaw-dropping crossing of wildebeest and zebra.
The Togoro area is also home to lion, cheetah and leopard and offers superb sightings of these animals thanks to the kopjes (hills) in the area, which offer great viewing and vantage points. Togoro is also home to three active large prides of lions, including a super pride of 42. The fertile land is also home to an abundance of buffalo, elephant, impala, eland, giraffe, gazelle and more.
