The Lamai Wedge is a triangular-shaped region located in Northern Serengeti between the Mara River, The Maasai Mara and Serengeti's Western perimeter.

Where is the Lamai Wedge

The Lamai Wedge is a triangular-shaped region located in Northern Serengeti between the Mara River & The Masai Mara. This spit of savanna is wholly sequestered from the rest of the park by the Mara River, with just a tiny seasonal bridge providing access. It remains one of the most secluded and uncrowded areas of the Serengeti and offers prime viewing of river crossings during the migration season from roughly July to October.


What makes the Lamai Wedge Special

This spit of savanna is wholly sequestered from the rest of the park by the Mara River, with just a tiny seasonal bridge providing access. It remains one of the most secluded and uncrowded areas of the Serengeti and offers prime viewing of river crossings during the migration season from roughly July to October. Only a few responsible tourism companies are allowed to operate within the triangle. One of our favorites is Lamai Serengeti.


Wildlife and Activities

With a direct, unfenced northern border on the isolated and wildlife-rich Mara Triangle of Kenya's famed Maasai Mara, there could not be a better place to view animals constantly moving back and forth within this renowned ecosystem. Enjoy morning and afternoon wildlife drives and guided walking safaris, which are not possible in other areas of the National Park. The resident wildlife in the park is found year-round. Other typical sightings may include jackals, warthogs and a number of other mammals, birds and reptiles. Exact sightings will depend on rain patterns, conditions and wildlife movements.
