Lamai Serengeti

A few years ago the Tanzanian government chose a handful of responsible companies to build small permanent lodges in the remote far northern sector of the Serengeti National Park. Nomad Tanzania was offered the prime site. Lamai Serengeti now sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, just a few miles from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River. If the location wasn't enough, the camp has used all the latest know-how to make sure it is featherlight on the earth.




'To see, but not to be seen; to listen, but not to be heard': this is Lamai where the rooms are slotted in to the hosting kopje and the Serengeti wildebeest migration charges past oblivious between July and October. We also love it when the migration moves south between November - March, and in its wake, all the mobile camps - leaving us our own private Serengeti wilderness and masses of resident game.

Need to Know

Lamai Serengeti is a perfect choice for those looking for style and comfort but without distancing themselves from nature. The rooms are all open fronted, with netting that can be zipped closed. This is migration central between July - October and for the rest of the year, there is plenty of big resident game and great birdlife to see without the crowds.
