Lamai Serengeti - Green Season

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Gold price level

Mango Opinion

This is a stunning property in the very north of the Serengeti. This area is mountainous and gorgeous, less wide-open plains. Amazing guiding and style. This area is a long way if you are driving - better to fly up even from the central Serengeti. During the Green Season you have the genrous resite widlife all to yourself.

Lamai Serengeti stands proud above the plains, around a tumble of giant boulders. You can see from this outcrop, the Kogakuria Kopje, for miles and miles. Over a million wildebeest cross these plains on their way to dodge the jaws of death in the Mara River, just down the track. On the Lamai Wedge, bristling with mammals all year round, there’s never a dull moment. Above it all, our beautiful kopje is a sacred wildlife haven – and our mission is to act as its faithful guardians.

At Lamai Serengeti we have just 12 rooms, split between two lodges. Each lodge has its own private bar and dining area, with adjoining library and map room and each has its own natural rock swimming pool. All rooms have 24-hour power and en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, flush toilets and powerful showers.

Lamai is spectacular during the green season when the Mara River runs high and the plains are full of fresh shoots of grass. This is a time of plenty. When the big herds of wildebeest and zebra are elsewhere, this prime area still enjoys spectacular wildlife viewing and you can experience it in almost total privacy, far away from the crowds. Spend your days seeing lions stalking the antelope, gazelles, topi and giraffe who reside here year round. Families of elephants meander in the forests along the rivers edge.
