Lamai Serengeti

Lamai Serengeti sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views in a remote corner of the northern Serengeti, just a few miles from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River, usually between late July and October.

Lamai Serengeti
  • Lamai Serengeti is such a special place. If you are to do one thing, make sure you wake up to watch the sunrise from your bed over the plains and wildlife below.

  • The rooms are unfussy but incredibly comfortable, little touches like tiny mirrored pieces in the walls made the whole lodge sparkle in the light.

  • The circular mess area juts out over the plains giving 270 degree views. With a bar conveniently located nearby you can spend the afternoon and evening watching the wildlife ambling by.

  • As well as being in a location which allows fantastic access to the migrations river crossings, it also has fantastic year round wildlife and the option to stretch your legs and go on a walking safari as well.

Lamai Serengeti has been built with some of the best views in the Serengeti, and is remote and exclusive. Set within the iconic Kogakuria kopjes with views out over the Mara River Valley and Lamai Wedge, the camp comprises of 12 tents, split between two camps, the Main Camp and the smaller Private Camp. There is also a beautiful private safari house, Mkombe's House, the first of its kind in the Serengeti.

Each tent site has been carefully thought out. Firstly and most importantly, it has been built with the elements in mind to take maximum advantage of the view, the sun, the wind and even the rain. All the tents have their own private and spacious verandas spread within the rocks and all have been sited with spectacular views. Each camp has its own private bar and dining area, with adjoining library and map room and its own swimming pool. All the rooms have 24hr power and en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, flush loos and an inside shower. Mkombe's House has two ensuite bedrooms and an ensuite children's room, accommodating up to four adults and six children comfortably.

Between July and October the camp is right where the wildebeest migration passes through, and given that the camp's within reach of the Mara River, you might have a chance of witnessing an exhilarating river crossing! But whatever the time of year, you'll be assured of wonderful hosting, amazing food and top class safari guiding. Lamai is a firm favorite of ours, in a magical position in the northern reaches of the Serengeti.
