Serengeti Safari Camp - Each year, this little camp casts off and begins its own odyssey. Covering hundreds of miles and moving every couple of months along a route that the herds have travelled for hundreds of years, Serengeti Safari Camp is where you come for your migration fix. The camp is effortlessly comfortable - a home from home, where guests want for nothing.

Serengeti Safari Camp has just 6 open-plan walk-in meru tents, with an en-suite bathroom at the rear. One of these tents is a family tent with two bedrooms and an adjoining sittting area. 

New eco-flush toilets and safari-style bucket showers, as well as a wash-basin with cold running water, and hot water delivered as needed. 

The main dining tent sits in the middle of the line of tents, with the fireplace right in front and a separate libary/bar tent nearby.

Small and intimate Serengeti Safari Camp leaves a light footprint and strikes the perfect balance between comfort and practicality - everything you need with classic style. A purist's dream.

 

Number of tents: 6

Family Tent:1

Style : Under Canvas Mobile

Lamai Camp - North Serengeti

*****

Lamai Serengeti sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje in the far North of the Serengeti 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.

Each of the rooms are designed to fit into the complex geometry of the kopje and to make the most of this sensational location,  its views and its natural space and light. At Lamai Serengeti there are just 12 rooms in all.  These are split between two entirely separate lodges, the Main Lodge of 8 rooms and the smaller private lodge of 4 rooms, each lodge having a pool. The private lodge is configured perfectly for families with younger children.

Each site has been carefully thought out. Firstly and most importantly, with the elements in mind, to take maximum advantage of the view, the sun, the wind and even the rain, welcome when it comes.

The rooms - a clever blend of canvas, plaster and natural poles have views for miles and a light airy feel with all the comforts and more.

Lamai is a magical camp that loses none of the connection to the nature outside because of the open and airiness of the rooms.

 

Number of rooms: 12

Family: 1

Style : Luxury Bush Camp/Lodge

 

Activities: game drives, dawn balloon ride, guided walks, pool

 

Ellie says, "A very unique and special camp that melds into the natural environment seamlessly  and respectfully; a true safari-lovers paradise."

 

Recommended for families, honeymooners, romantics, organic souls and believers in magic
