A must visit if you are on safari in Tanzania. First because its location, on a rocky outcropping in the middle of the Serengeti is so unique, the great animals are all around you, and, in fact, some big ones live right on the Lamai hill. The accommodations are fantastic, casitas with all the luxuries including walkout decks with incredible...

Lamai Serengeti is right up there with the best places we have ever stayed, everything about the place is simply superb. The setting is stunning and lodge beautiful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the communal areas stylish and welcoming. The food was delicious and we especially enjoyed breakfast in the bush. All of the staff were fantastic but...

This was my fourth time to go on safari and my second time in the Serengeti and I was absolutely blown away by Lamai. It's just one of those places that is perfect in every category. The rooms are stunning, spacious and comfortable. Lamai has a unique position, perched on a hilltop, so the views are incredible. We had a...

In this beautiful rocky outcrop above the plain, Helen, Clyde, Peter and their team provide perfect hospitality in a stunning setting. We loved the cocktails and the communal dinners at the big table with other guests from around the world. Our son celebrated his 16th birthday during our stay and we were treated to a traditional song and dance from...

Having spent 9 days on safari at 3 great locations, Lamai was our favourite. Helen and Clyde run an incredible lodge, that's luxurious and comfortable while being very relaxed and super friendly. All the staff are brilliant, with special props to the chefs, the food at Lamai is absolutely delicious. Rooms are just amazing, huge, secluded individual lodges with open...

My husband and I went to Lamai Serengeti as Part 1 of our honeymoon and were absolutely blown away. It was the most magical place we have ever been - the food was out of this world and we saw the big 5 within 24 hours thanks to our wonderful guide Elisante. We also saw baby everything - lion, leopard,...

The Mkombe House in the heart of the Serengeti is a find not to be missed and is ideal for families or groups of friends. The house is beautifully furnished and luxurious, the staff is warm and absolutely delightful, and the accommodations including an outdoor pool and outdoor showers and opportunities for dining outdoors were spectacular. We were treated with...

We stayed at the Mkombe House (a couple of miles from the main lodge area) for two nights in November. This was an absolutely fantastic experience with world class accommodations, terrific staff, an amazing guide, and unbelievable food. Although located in the northern part of the Serengeti, we were by no by no means "roughing it". During the day, the...

We (two couples) have been on a tour of Serengeti for a few weeks and I have to say that Lamai Serengeti was the absolute highlight. We have had a few safari vacations before, but in terms of location, hospitality of staff and service Lamai ranks pretty much at the top. The managers, a young couple from South Africa, have...

Nomad Lamai not only is a beautiful camp but the views are spectacular. You are up on a hill where you have a view of the Serengeti from a bit above. The rooms are fantastic and well appointed with local art and furniture. Double sinks in the bathroom with a wonderful shower with good water pressure. Also a beautiful view...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you were to visit only one place in the Serengeti, it should be here. This is no idle boast; the iconic Kogakuria kopje in northern Serengeti. A few years ago the Tanzanian government chose a handful of responsible companies to build small permanent lodges in this remote sector of the Serengeti. Nomad Tanzania was offered the prime site and Lamai Serengeti now sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Beautifully designed open-fronted rooms, a spacious lounge and clear pool provide an ideal place to escape to for some relaxation in between your wildlife adventures, for both families, groups and couples.The area boasts year-round fantastic game viewing, including the Big 5, and between July and November, the wildebeest migration moves through, crossing the Mara River in dramatic fashion just 20mins from the lodge. ... more   less
