Average time to visit
Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit.
To start planning your holiday to Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge
Located in the Wogakurya Hills in northern Serengeti, Lemala Kuria Hills is perched on a hill side surrounded by kopjes and open woodland. Close to the Mara River and in the path of the great migration, this luxury camp offers incredible game viewing.
Lemala Kuria Hills comprises 15 glass fronted tented suites set amongst giant boulders for maximum privacy. Each tent has a sitting room with mini bar, bedroom with mosquito netted bed, spacious bathroom with freestanding bath, indoor and outdoor shower and a spacious deck with tables and chairs, a private plunge pool and sun beds. Each deck boasts magnificent views over the grassy slopes below. Triple rooms are also available on request for those travelling with children.
Guests are invited to relax in the main area, which houses the bar, lounge and main dining area where delicious meals and afternoon tea are served. There is a large swimming pool with sun deck as well as a spa for those seeking ultimate relaxation.
Travelling between June and October, guests are likely to encounter incredible wildlife with the great wildebeest migration moving north towards the Mara River. Exploring the area by 4x4 game vehicles offers guests the chance to witness the extraordinary scenery and wildlife. The location near the Mara River makes it possible for guests to see a famed river crossing, though the movements of the wildebeest can never be predicted. Travelling outside these months will also give guests a magical safari experience, with plenty of resident game including lion, leopard and plenty of elephant to name just a few.
This lodge is unsuitable for children under six years old.
