Lamai Serengeti
Lamai Serengeti

Lamai Serengeti has a sensational location atop a vast granite kopje. During the day, there are unbeatable views of the plains below, and at night you feel like you’re sleeping in a giant’s rock gardens.

Considered one of the Serengeti’s most stylish camps, and conveniently just a few miles from the Mara River and its famous crossing points. The open-fronted bedrooms are peppered around Kogakuria Kopje, a tumble of giant boulders that stands proud above the northern Serengeti grasslands.

This family-friendly camp welcomes children of 8 years and older and allows bushwalking for 12 years old and above. Private guides are available on request and are always a good idea for families travelling with younger ones.

The camp has in total twelve rooms, of which three offer child-safe annexes with adjoining twin room and sharing the bathroom. The stone and thatch constructed accommodations are all raised on wooden decking and all en-suite. 

Each room is open-fronted, with mosquito netting and canvas roll-downs if needed. There are canopied mosquito nets over the beds. Each room includes a comfy day bed and chairs for relaxing on the verandah.

This part of the Serengeti ecosystem, in general, offers healthy concentrations of lion, leopard, and buffalo to be seen all year round. The camp prides itself on expert guides sharing their skills as they search the plains for big mammal and fantastic photographic opportunities.

Between June and October in this remote part of the Serengeti is when one could expect the hustle and bustle of the Mara River, where, over a million-strong wildebeest and zebra throw themselves across its crocodile-infested waters. This, always makes for spectacular predator and prey viewing along the banks in the late dry season.
