Mantis, a leading conservation-focused hotel group that hand-picked a collection of hotels, eco-lodges and waterways luxury hotels, eco-lodges, waterways, and impact experiences across the globe, debuted its newest property in Tanzania: the Siringit Migration Camp by Mantis. The innovative mobile camp moves every few months to follow the wildebeest herds, zebra, Thomson’s gazelles, and the predators the Great Migration attracts within the Serengeti National Park.
Debuted in the the Kogatende region (Northern Serengeti), the Siringit Migration Camp by Mantis will remain there until November 2021, before moving to the Ndutu region (Southern Serengeti). Following the reopening on 15 December 2021, the luxury property will stay in the region until 31 March 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 features eight luxury guest tents. Positioned on raised platforms, each can accommodate up to two guests. Furthermore, two can be joined to form a family tent for up to four guests (two adults and two children) to stay comfortably in. All tents boast en-suite bathrooms with double vanity. The camp also has a separate dining tent and lounge tent which includes a selection of coffee table books and board games.
Made in Tanzania, the tents are created using recycled materials. The stretched canvas panels are handstitched, and the hexagonal-shaped shade net dips to the earth with clear side panels, bringing guests even closer to the Serengeti wilderness. All furnishings are custom-designed and made by Meg Vaun Interiors based in Johannesburg, South Africa. The luxury camp is built on raised platforms leaving a smaller eco-footprint. Solar power is utilized for electricity and heating. All Mantis guests are invited to reduce their carbon footprint using the Mantis and Accor foundation CCFA’s carbon offset calculator.
During a full-day game drive, guests may opt for picnic hampers to enjoy out. They can also take breakfast, lunch and dinner in the dining tent which serves contemporary seasonal plates with an African twist.
Together with Healing Earth, a premium African spa brand that uses organic products made from natural active ingredients sourced from the continent’s powerful minerals, oceans, flowers, herbs, fruit, seeds, and natural oils, Singrid offers guests a selection of massage therapies.
Priced at $600 per person, per night (based on double occupancy), the experience package includes accommodation, all meals and local beverages, morning and evening game drives, picnic breakfast, lunches, and dinners (for full-day game drives), sundowners, return road transfers to the closest Serengeti airstrip to the camp and shared use of a 4 x 4 safari vehicle and complimentary Wi-Fi.
