Tucked between the prime wildlife areas of central and southern Serengeti, Dunia Camp is a secluded bush camp which combines elements of style and luxury with an incredible wildlife experience. Dunia Camp is in the perfect location to enjoy the best of the Serengeti's game viewing on a year round basis. The Great Migration passes through this area that is especially known for its abundance of lion, leopard and cheetah and the rare chance it offers to see the illustrious black rhino. The quiet setting in the Moru Kopjes is a retreat of tranquillity in the most scenic part of the Serengeti. Perched in between the known territories of Ndutu and Seronera, the Moru Kopjes are arguably the most breathtaking scenery the Serengeti has to offer. Surreal rock formations protrude out from the plains and provide cats with a perfect viewpoint to overlook their territories. Dunia's close proximity to Seronera allows for a memorable balloon safari experience.
Game drives from Dunia Camp offer an excellent variety of habitats and combine Migration viewing with the search for big cats as well as the rhino - Moru Kopjes currently being the only area in the Serengeti where the illustrious animal can be viewed.
The camp comprises just 8 spacious en-suite tents each with flush toilets, large bathrooms and a private veranda overlooking the Kopjes. This intimate setting gives it a feeling of a small community of avid explorers. Each tent is stylishly decorated in African bush camp style with extensive use of color and local materials.
Canvas chairs and coir mats adorn the private verandas, while hurricane lamps provide a flicker of vintage charm as the sun dips behind the region’s iconic granite outcrops. Weathered wood, sturdy canvas and fine linen: Dunia is a place of comfortable simplicity and effortless charm, where unnecessary distractions are pared away.

Game Viewing at Dunia
The Southern Serengeti is most famous for the period between December and March as the migration heads into this fertile grassland to give birth to the next generation of wildebeest and zebra. During these months, vast herds of migratory animals descend upon the Southern Plains – followed intently by a range of predators. When the migration departs, attention shifts back to the Seronera Valley which is well known for its high numbers of resident game and quality game viewing.
The Seronera River provides a constant water source and creates a forest region which follows the course of the river creating good cover for the elusive leopard. Strategically placed with easy access to both these regions, Dunia Camp is capable of offering superb game viewing throughout the year.

Mari’s review of Dunia Camp in the central Serengeti
There were a lot of of things that I liked about Dunia Camp in the central Serengeti. We had great wildlife sightings. Such as lions in the trees with elephants underneath. Or leopards lounging in trees. Plus large herds of elephants.
Dunia Camp also offers easy access to the scenic Moru Kopjes area, known for its lion sightings, as well as the Seronera and southern Serengeti. It is on a major migration corridor with the wildebeest and zebra passing the camp in May to June & back again in November to December.
It's a semi-permanent camp with just eight spacious tented suites, all with great views. This exceptional location offers resident all-year-round game in a secluded valley in the heart of the Serengeti.
Dunia Camp is also the only camp in the Serengeti run entirely by women. The manager was great and very friendly - but I felt that the lady rangers may have needed a little more training.
