Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge

Offering unrivalled luxury, Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge is situated in the Wogakuria Hills, close to the Mara River on the Tanzanian side of the border and within the main corridor of the world-famous wildebeest migration. Large boulders and kopjes form the prominent features of the site and each guest tent has been carefully positioned amongst these to ensure privacy and spectacular vistas over the gentle grassed slopes, open woodland and tree lined watercourses, which all make up the scenic north Serengeti landscape. The Lodge has a clean and contemporary design that remain undeniably African at heart, largely through the warmth and vibrancy of the team that call it home. Magnificent kopjes dominate the public areas, with superb views from the bar, sitting and dining areas, swimming pool and the decks. Guests may enjoy several dining options in camp or out in the bush with a choice of freshly cooked starters, main course, desserts and house drinks. Tea is served in the afternoon before your game drive and cocktails at sunset on one of the kopjes overlooking the Isuria escarpment. A separate tent in the wild forms the Melengali Spa where you can indulge in massages and manicures in a peaceful, natural setting. Whether you are here for the migration between June and October or for privacy and seclusion at other times of the year, you will find Lemala Kuria Hills a place of incredible luxury and beauty where you can relax or explore the amazing wildlife, landscapes and habitats of the northern Serengeti with our superb guides either on foot or in our custom-designed 4x4s 15 Glass fronted suite tents, twin or super-king beds (triples are available) 35 beds in total Public areas made up of three tents housing a combined lounge and bar area, an inside and outside dining area and the reception area and gift shop 24hr electricity supply provided by solar and backup generator En-suite flush toilet, running water and hot showers and a freestanding bath All suites have plunge pools and there is a swimming pool with sundeck in main area Laundry services available Internet access throughout the Lodge Open game viewing vehicles are available (refer to rate sheet) All alcoholic house and non alcoholic drinks and Wifi included Walks are available, however need to be booked in advance (refer to rate sheet) “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” - Marcel Proust

15 custom built standard tents each with a plunge pool. The unique design is based on sound, globally recognized and accepted environmental principals, which ensure the lightest footprint possible. The materials which have been selected in the construction of the units, are a mix of recycled steel, glass, sustainable timbers, composite decking and canvas. The tents are very spacious at 70 square meters and all are stylishly furnished with a contemporary design, making them comfortable and homely. The double rooms offer grand super-king beds whilst the twins have two three quarter sized beds. The entrance into the unit is from the back through an entrance hall, which affords the guests privacy when inside the tent. From here, one enters into the bedroom and sitting area. Each unit comprises a sitting area, bedroom, bathroom, dressing area, outside deck area and outside shower. Bathrooms are spacious with double basins, WC, shower and bath. Extended shade net awnings over the front decks of the tents provide additional shade, keeping them cool. All tents are also fitted with ceiling fans. The full front of the bedroom section comprises sliding frameless glass windows, which enhance and accentuate the magnificent panoramic views of the Serengeti. The sitting area has a luxurious feel with beautiful sofas and ottomans into which guests can sit back and relax. From the sitting area, guests look out through glass sliding doors onto uninterrupted views of the Wogakuria Hills and the game as it passes by the camp. The concept of the large glass fronted areas, has been carried through to the bathrooms. These have been designed in such away that there is a view from each and every angle from within. From the double basin vanity, a mirrored image of the view can be admired. The glass shower walls also allow a view. Whilst relaxing in a hot slipper bath, enjoy the beautiful vistas through a full length window, next to which the bath has been positioned. Outside showers are also special features of the units. Dramatic features such as large boulders, small kopjes, big and gnarled fig trees, have all been selected and used to form an intrinsic part of the outside shower.
