Lamai Serengeti is a beautifully designed camp positioned amongst the rocks of the Kogakuria Kopje; just a short game drive away from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River.

I don't tend to pick favourite camps, but this might be it. The location, the style, the guides, all make an incredible stay. They dare to keep it simple whilst tastefully luxurious; and are getting it so right!

Rooms at Lamai Serengeti

This magnificent camp has twelve tented suites, divided between the main camp of eight suites and a smaller, private camp of just four suites. All the rooms have spacious verandas spread within the rocks and all have been sited with spectacular views. The rooms also have 24hr power and ensuite bathrooms with his and her brass basins, flush loos and an inside shower. Relax on the enormous double bed and gaze out at the African wilds unfolding in front of you, or update your journal at the writing desk.

When to visit Lamai Serengeti

Between July and October, the camp is where the wildebeest migration passes through, and given that the camp's within reach of the Mara River, you might have a chance of witnessing an exhilarating river crossing. This said, outside this period can be even better as the park is quieter so you can really unwind and relax.

Activities at Lamai Serengeti

Game drives are the preferred method of exploration in this section of the Serengeti National Park and allow you to cover a larger area in your search for the stars of the wildlife shows. You may also embark on a full day drive complete with picnic lunch to really make the most of your time in the bush. If walking safaris are more your cup of tea, they are available at certain times of year depending on the length of the grass. Back at base, the swimming pool is the ideal place to unwind in the heat - and handily provides a good place to watch the animals below too!

Mara River Crossings at Lamai

This remote part of the Serengeti is bisected by the perilous Mara River, where once a year, between July and October, over a million-strong wildebeest and zebra throw themselves across its crocodile-infested waters, heading for where the grass is greener. This makes for spectacular predator and prey viewing on the banks in the late dry season.
