Tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje, Lamai Serengeti is a beautiful safari camp with panoramic views of the Serengeti not far from where the great migration crosses the Mara River.
Accommodations at the camp consist of twelve rooms split between two entirely separate lodges. The Main Lodge has eight rooms and our smaller Private Lodge has four rooms. The thatch and stone rooms sit on raised wooden decking. Each room is open-fronted but can be zipped closed at night. Comfy beds are draped in mosquito netting and the en suite bathrooms are enclosed by heavy netting and include a large solar-heated showers, double vanities, and flush toilets. A private veranda features a daybed and gorgeous views of the bush. For families, there are three suites with an adjoining twin room for children, sharing the bathroom.
The camp is set in the northern section of the world-famous Serengeti. The area’s lush, rolling grassland and tree-lined watercourses lies in the path of the great migration. Every year millions of wildebeests and thousands of zebras and Thomson gazelles pour into the grasslands in search of new pastures. During the dry season, the herds gather on the banks of the Mara River and even dramatically cross the river as awaiting crocodiles snap at the opportunity for a meal. Lions and leopards stalk the rocky, granite kopjes and river lines looking for prey.
