The Serengeti

Serengeti Serian Mobile Camp Lamai Location Map

The open plains of the Lamai Wedge are incredibly beautiful and abundant in game. The landscape is reminiscent of scenes from Out of Africa, and there is plenty of freedom to roam and explore. Lamai Camp is situated opposite Crossing Point 4, midway among all crossing points along the river and is perfectly positioned to witness the wildebeest river crossings.

Away from the river, this area of rolling savannah, boulder-strewn hillsides and fig-tree groves, is littered with inconceivably enormous herds of wildebeest, topi and zebra, as well as all the predators that gorge on this movable feast. Needless to say, the game viewing here is world-class. Cheetah, lion and elephant especially make for fantastic sightings, but it’s not unheard of to see the Big Five in a day.

Watching a crossing is something that is thrilling to the core - the intensity, the trauma and the sheer spectacle, is all-absorbing. Hundreds of thousands of pounding hooves set the tempo, and the nasal grunting hits a frenetic pitch - creatures cease to be individuals and operate as a swarm, teeming unseeingly toward the water. The crush, dust and panic as they launch themselves in and struggle across the current–claimed by crocodiles and crushed by each other epitomises the rawness of nature’s character.

The cornerstone of a safari experience at Lamai is game a drive in an open-top safari vehicle, with a dedicated guide and spotter. The freedom this grants is key to getting the most out of your stay. Go where the day takes you, be it a full day out with a picnic in the wilderness, or a lazy siesta back in camp before that ice-cold sundowner.

Walking safaris are also a beautiful way to explore the savannah.  Set off at first light with your guide, and tune into the whispering savannah silence. As you ease into a slower pace, you’ll notice your senses picking up on the hidden details of the world around you.

The camp comprises of just 4 tents plus a family suite comprising of 2 separate en-suite tents joined by a communal living space.

Even though this is a mobile camp, the furnishings and creature comforts are all there. Flushing toilets, bucket showers, en-suite bathrooms, enormous wrought-iron beds, Moroccan rugs, and all the trimmings make this camp simplistically elegant and comfortable.

The premise is that you spend the days walking, and the nights sleeping out in light weight tents, in a makeshift camp that moves each day – the end of each day’s walk brings you to your new site for the night. Prebooking is essential (additional cost).
