Having opened in October 2018 in the fabulous Serengeti National Park, Lemala's Nanyukie matches the same great standards of comfort and service as the other properties in Lemala's collection which also includes Kuria Hills in the Kogatende region of the Serengeti, Mpingo Ridge in Tarangire and Hamerkop House in Arusha.
Lamala Nanyukie - The Facts
Meaning 'endless plains' in the local Maasai language, the Serengeti is undoubtedly one of the world's most celebrated wilderness areas. Lemala Nanyukie is located a forty-five minute drive East of the Seronera Airstrip in the park's central region. Superbly located with outstanding views across these fascinating 'endless plains', the camp itself sits on a grassy savanna dotted with kopjes and shaded by giant ancient acacia trees.
With canvas walls, cathedral-like tented ceilings and broad hardwood decks, guests at Lemala Nanyukie can expect a light contemporary decor in a palette of dazzling whites and neutral colours, with warmth introduced by textured accessories, luxurious upholstery, wooden furnishings and well-executed lighting.
The main double-volume area will feature a comfortable lounge and bar, outdoor viewing deck leading to a refreshing swimming pool, and indoor and outdoor dining areas. Additionally, Lemala will arrange special meals like bush breakfasts and lantern lit dinners to add a cherry on the top of a beautiful stay. The campfire is perfect for a post-dinner drink and to share tales about an enthralling day on safari. A separate spa tent amongst the trees offers secluded relaxation for the middle of the day.
The 15 luxurious guest tents are comprised of thirteen standard suites and a two-bedroom suite. Spaced well apart for maximum privacy, five of these suites have extra day beds so triples can be accommodated for. The two-bedroom suite is the perfect space for families or groups of friends. Features include a huge bed, spacious lounge area and a bathroom with double vanity, shower and free-standing bathtub. The delightful wooden deck has sunken seating, outdoor shower and a beautiful corner plunge pool with views directly across the Serengeti's magnificent grasslands. What more could one ask for?
This area of the Serengeti is crossed by the thrilling wildlife spectacle of the annual wildebeest migration, but also has extremely high-density game viewing at all times of the year, especially its cats. You can be sure that your activities like game drives and walking safaris are full of thrills and exciting adventures.
