Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Mkombes House at Lamai
  • A private house in the Northern Serengeti, perfectly placed to see the migration herds between July and October. With your own guide and vehicle set the pace of your safari and have total freedom.

  • Ideal for a family or a group of friends looking for a very personal safari experience. As it is very large and with expansive outdoor areas and pool the house is also perfect for two families traveling together.

  • Nomad's guides are some of the best in the country, ensuring you'll get the most out of your game-viewing

  • 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.

Perched on top of a rocky kopje, Mokombe's House at Lamai has endless views over the northern Serengeti savannahs that stretch right into the Masai Mara. Expect unforgettable sunsets, vast night skies, some of Tanzania's finest safari guiding and an impressive array of wildlife to uncover. Designed to accommodate families, the house is entirely private, with its own lounge with roaring fireplace, deck area for soaking up the sun and pool for cooling off during the heat of the day. You'll have your own safari guide and vehicle to help you explore the delights of this wildlife-rich and unspoiled corner of the Serengeti, offering you the ultimate flexibility.

The house is named in memory of Nomad Tanzania's founders and top guides Mkombe Mniko who had a strong connection with children and loved sharing safari experiences with families. With the same airy, contemporary feel as sister camp Lamai, Mkombe's House has a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere where no-one will blink if you flop into a sofa for a cheeky snooze after a morning on safari.

There are two en-suite bedrooms, each with a nearby secure and en-suite children's room, accommodating up to four adults and six children. Unlike much of Northern Tanzania, there is no minimum age for children here, and cots, high chairs and car seats are available for little ones. The house has a lovely dining room and lounge, as well as plenty of outdoors space to unwind, whether you want to retreat to the shade or bask in the sun, and a plunge pool and larger swimming pool which the whole family will enjoy.

But the real magic here isn't about the house itself, the stylish decor, the delectable delights you'll be served each mealtime. It's in the total flexibility to do a safari your way, whatever your family requires. So if your kids don't want an early start for a game-drive, you can just go out later, or if some of you decide to simply unwind and soak up the view from the house and not go out on a drive, you can. And while you enjoy a well-earned siesta during the heat of the day, the guide can take your youngsters on adventures around the camp in search of lizards and rock hyrax. It's your safari and you can call the shots!
