Nyikani Migration Camp, formally known as Chaka Camp, the original property in the Nyikani chain, offers an intimate bush experience in the Serengeti ecosystem. Designed to be lightweight to move seasonally, Nyikani Migration Camp follows the migration seasonally throughout the year. Nyikani Migration operates off grid and relies on a custom built solar system for its power. Room fabrics are handwoven African designs, and the camp's furniture was commissioned and crafted by artisans in Arusha, Tanzania.
From May through November, Nyikani Migration Camp is located in Northern Serengeti, just minutes away from the Mara River. Often featured in magazines and on television, wildebeest crossings over the Mara River are a once-in-a-lifetime event. Watch as the herds gather on the riverbank and then take the first leap into the water, often into the open mouths of waiting crocodiles. Nyikani Migration Camp's location allows for easy access to several crossing points along the river. A short distance from Kogatende Airstrip, this once remote destination is now easy to reach by bush plane. As with any migration experience, cats are following closely behind in search of their next meal.
