Both are beautifully poised amongst the rocks of the Kogakuria Kopjies (little hills) in the Northern Serengeti. Well appointed with a simple, undemanding elegance that does not detract from the wilderness exterior. Enjoy spectacular views of the undulating grasslands, teeming with wildlife, especially when the migration moves through the area. The quality guides will lead you on a journey of exploration, engaging and heightening your senses, with breathtaking wildlife and the drama of the Great Migration.
At the lodge
Lamai Serengeti Camp has spacious central areas with a rustic charm. Built from concrete and wood with rough thatched roofs, relaxation in a picture perfect setting is guaranteed. The dining space is decorated in soothing pastel colours with mirrored tiles plastered into the walls, for a somewhat quirky feel. Meals are served at white washed tables communally or privately depending on preference. The lounge is a free flowing space with comfortable wraparound couches and chairs positioned to catch the breeze during the heat of the day or to enjoy the fireplace during those chilly winter evenings. outside there is a platform for starlit meals and an inviting swimming pool with wooden decking and recliners.
The smaller private camp has similar private areas on a smaller scale.
The twelve tented suites are divided between a larger camp of eight suites and a smaller, private camp of just four suites. Each tented unit is built of cement and wood with a neutral palette blending them seamlessly into the environment. Each one enjoys an intimate location dotted along the rocky hillside, with impressive views of the Serengeti plains. Spacious and inviting, relax on a mosquito netted double or twin bed or update your journal at the writing desk, both overlooking the African wilds. The en-suite bathroom with built in shelving has his and hers brass basins and a shower with hot running water. Outside there is a private deck with rustic furniture.
Game drive is the preferred method of exploration in the Serengeti National Park, providing the means to cover a larger area during a wilderness expedition. This is further enhanced with a full day's game drive, picnic included. Bush walks are offered depending on the length of grass, with the intention of interpreting and encountering the small animals of the bush including reptiles, birds and insects. Dining in the bush with the sounds of the wilds all around is a unique experience not to be missed. The swimming pool is the ideal place to unwind during the heat of the day.
