Lemala Mara

Serengeti & the North

Rating: Deluxe    

Lemala Mara overview

A small luxury tented camp in the far north of Serengeti National Park, close to the Mara River and the Kenyan border. Lemala Mara is a seasonal camp, open from July to October. Between December and March the camp relocates to the Ndutu region and is known as Lamala Ndutu. These two locations optimise sightings of the annual migration.

In keeping with the other Lemala Camps in Northern Tanzania, this is a superbly appointed camp with huge luxurious tented rooms and large bathrooms. The lounge tent is furnished with comfortable sofas, lamps, books, chests and rugs. In the evening there is a camp fire where guests enjoy sundown drinks before dinner hosted by the camp manager. There are twelve luxury twin or double bedded tents with some triples available, sleeping a maximum of 26 guest at any one time.

There is a large amount of resident game in the area with prides of lion sometimes 30 animals strong, but from July when the migration arrives the area is awash with animals. The wildebeest move through the area through to August into the Masai Mara but some large herds usually remain on the Tanzanian side and any changes to weather conditions can mean the vast numbers coming back in at any time.

At the camp's superb location, Lemala guests will be amongst the vast herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra. Two of the largest crossing points on the river are nearby and occasionally guests may observe the exciting crossings from the comfort of the camp. The spectacular Lamai triangle, Wogakuria kopjes and Kogatende airstrip are all very easily accessible.

As well as game drives, bush walks and bush breakfasts and lunches can be arranged.

Lemala camps run on sound environmental & social policies and have minimal impact. For example, all glass is taken to a company who employ disabled people to make jewellry which they sell.

"What can one say Pure luxury - wonderful A perfect end to 12 beautiful weeks"

Phillip Haywood
"Very good camp and location. Close to the crossing points. Could have made more of the location by having the tents look towards the river. Area is good for wildebeest when crossing but not mush other game around. 4 nights was 1 or perhaps 2 nights too long to stay.too long"
Ms. Nicola Jones
"Can't praise this place highly enough. Luxurious tents, brilliant food and fantastic setting with views of the Mara River. However what really set this place apart was the staff - everyone was wonderful and they were so friendly. Was so sad to leave this place...."
