Lamai Serengeti Camp Location Map

Lamai Serengeti 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. For roughly a quarter of the year, between late July and October, this is where you'll find the migration.

This area of lush, rolling grassland and tree-lined watercourses is the hub around which the Serengeti migration circulates. During the dry season, the herds mass on both banks of the Mara River, frequently crossing - and braving the crocs - in response to local weather patterns that only they seem to understand.

But even a brief visit to Lamai Serengeti at any time of year will demostrate that it's not all about the migration.

Unlike the southern plains of the Serengeti that dry out, forcing all but the hardiest of species to leave, this area remains lush and green. The resident game at Lamai Serengeti is spectacular. Plains game in the form of zebra, topi, gazelles, impala, buffalo and giraffe all frequent the area throughout the year. Lion are rarely far away and leopard, ever present, but always elusive, stalk the rocky kopjes and river lines. It is a true Serengeti safari experience - but without the people.

There are 12 open-fronted rooms, split between 2 separate lodges. The Main Lodge consists of 8 rooms and the smaller Private Lodge, which is booked exclusively for just one group at a time, has just 4 rooms.

All the rooms have their own private and spacious verandas spread within the rocks and all have been sited with spectacular views. All rooms have 24 hour power and en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold runing water (provided by a solar system).

Three of the rooms are suitable for families, as these have a master bedroom with adjoining twin rooms, making them perfect for guests travelling with children.

Each lodge has its own private bar and dining area plus a library/map room and its own natural rock swimming pool.
