Luxury safari on wheelsTanzania

You might do a double take when you first spot the Bush Rover Company’s luxury mobile suite.

Forget soggy canvas tents, unzippable sleeping bags and drab cabins, the Bush Rover comes equipped with a stunning elevated bedroom and balcony, tasteful wood-panelled bathroom (complete with bath) and spiral staircase, as well as solar power to full hot water, lights and power sockets – you’ll need to recharge your camera batteries, after all.

This go-anywhere LandRover comes fully functional and equipped to ensure a luxurious and unforgettable African safari. But when its not traversing the vast plains of the Serengeti, rumbling through the Ngorgongoro Highlands or attempting crossings at the mighty Grumeti River, its transformation into a chic rooftop dwelling is something to behold.

​Unlike fixed camps and lodges, the Bush Rover can move as often as the wildebeest migrate. The camp simply folds up and moves to the next exciting Serengeti destination leaving no trace.

The Bush Rover Company allows you to experience a safari without limitations – you can be as flexible as you want and, most importantly, you don’t have to return to a base camp at the end of every day.

Given the opportunity to cover so much more of the African landscape than on a traditional safari, you can head into isolated, remote pockets of the wilderness that aren’t normally visited. Everything is then packed up with the vehicle and carried on to your next destination, which could be anywhere along the Tanzanian migration route.

It’s the closest thing you may ever get to a sleepover with lions, elephants and wildebeest!

Hiring the Bush Rover Serengeti starts at US$495 a person per night. The game package, which includes full board and guided safaris, starts at US$615 a person per night.

 

Bush Rover seasonal camps are offered in three private sites in the Serengeti, each in the heart of the great wildebeest migration. Only five Bush Rovers are available, and guests can drive back to the site to enjoy dining in a mess tent.

From mid-May to mid-July the camp is located on the Grumeti river, in the western corridor of the Serengeti. From here it moves to the Mara River in the far north of Serengeti close to a wildebeest crossing point but away from the crowds. It remains until the end of October. In December, the camp follows the wildebeest to the southeast of the Serengeti to Kusini and stays there until late March.
