According to Claudia Stuart (Co-owner of Bushtops) who has written to me by e-mail, the upcoming Roving Bushtops is the brainchild of her husband Andrew and it has already started to turn heads in the industry for being a unique concept, something that hasn’t been seen before.
Some camps are set in magnificent surroundings but fixed: others offer game viewing on the move, at the expense of five star facilities. As its name implies, Roving Bushtops offers the best of both worlds. As a luxury camp on wheels, it combines the glamour of its siblings with the excitement of game drive camping, to create the most thrilling of safari experiences. If the best game moves, Roving Bushtops will too.
The concept of roving after the herds harks back to the pioneering spirit of early explorers, but Roving Bushtops delivers a thoroughly 21st century luxury safari experience. Guests stay in six superbly-specified tents, featuring king-size beds and 24 hour power. Each en-suite bathroom includes a flushing toilet, bath, vanity basins and showers. The owners made sure there is absolutely no compromise on indulgence, with every need being catered for through 24 hour butler service. During the day, tent walls can be opened on three sides, enabling panoramic views of the surrounding bush.
The true glory of Roving Bushtops is its immediate access to the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles. There is no need to travel to the animals: they are all around you. Daily game drives are led by expert rangers, supported by keen-eyed local spotters.
The main location of Roving Bushtops is around the Moru Kopjes, huge granite rock formations which burst through the grass plains, creating vistas of stunning beauty beneath rolling hills. The land traps water, attracting abundant wildlife and ensuring fabulous viewing throughout the year. For those who love nature in its purest form, the heart of the Serengeti is without peer or parallel. The sheer quantity of game here is phenomenal, with resident and migrating herbivores stalked by loping leopards, charismatic cheetah and languid lions.
Between November and May, the migration either passes through or is within one or two hour game drive away from Ndutu or the Western Corridor. Roving Bushtops is also easy to reach at any time, being just 20 minutes’ game drive from the Serenora Airstrip with flights landing from Kogatende, Lake Manyara, Arusha, Kilimanjaro (JRO) Dar Es Saalam and Zanzibar.
Roving Bushtops will welcome its first guests in the near future, and we will write an extensive feature about this one of a kind concept. Make sure not to miss our upcoming posts!
