Lemala Serengeti Camp: Interesting Facts
Lemala Serengeti Camp: In depth
Lemala Serengeti is a mobile tented camp designed to move with the migration. Between December and April, Lemala Serengeti is located in the southern Serengeti in the Ndutu area. From mid April to early July it is located in the central Serengeti and from July to early November it moves to the northern Serengeti, to the Kogatende area. Due to it following the migration you can rely on the camp location to deliver a good Serengeti safari experience. Perfect for adventure seeking honeymooners!
Like all the Serengeti mobile tented camps, Lemala is made out of canvas structures and the main area is an open and spacious. Almost like a mess tent, but with quality furniture and a luxurious design, all meals and evening drinks take place in the main tented unit. This is the communal area with a bar and sofas equipped with a great view out over the Serengeti. There is a fire place a small way from the main mess area.
The camp is small with only 12 Meru-style safari tents. These are surprisingly large and offer good views of the surrounding bush. They have large beds, a writing desk, deck chairs for your veranda, great storage and good bathrooms with running water and showers at the back. The showers are bucket showers, but this makes no real difference. The rooms can be made into triples and twins as well.
Day time game drives take place with semi open sided vehicles and good guides.

Lemala Serengeti Camp: Lamai’s “Seven Breadly Sins”
The kitchen is the engine room of a lodge and we have a fantastic team of chefs - they work hard and they are always smiling.
This week Jana challenged Yassin to bake a bread a day for the next blog and the results are outstanding.
An afternoon storm rolled over us last week.
Pretty grim weather made for a slight lack of enthusiasm for the drive - but we managed to convince everyone to get out in the bush for a slippery adventure - including ourselves.
We have six or seven old Buffalo bulls that never stray far from Lamai. That is six or seven pretty good reasons why we escort you to and from your rooms at night!!
The grasses of Bologonja are green and lush this year.

I'm quite certain that every safari camp manager has, at some stage, rued the day they ever decided to share a home with the cunning Vervet Monkey.

Olakira is one of the finest mobile camps in the Serengeti. It follows the same route as Serian in that it moves twice a year. From July to November they’re in the north of the Serengeti in the Karatu region. Then from December to March they move back down to fantastic spot in the Ndutu plains. At Olakira you are guaranteed great guiding, lovely food and a luxurious but authentic safari camp. Its position in the north is unbeatable as you can actually see the river crossing from the comfort of the camp.
Serian Serengeti North is exactly what a safari camp should be. Alex knows the bush like the back of his hand and it’s this kind of knowledge that he demands from his guides and they rise to the challenge with aplomb. It is an adventurous experience with a luxurious edge that no one ever forgets. Our favourite mobile tented camp in Kogatende
Nomad Tented Camps have evolved from a true passion for guiding safaris here. The quality of guiding and positioning of the camps depending on the seasonal movement of the herds makes for an awesome safari experience. Even the 'light' camps are comfortable and designed with style.
