Nomad Lamai Serengeti is one of the northern Serengeti’s newest permanent camps – having opened at the end of June 2011. It’s set high up in the beautiful Kogakuria Kopjies, with views out towards the Mara River Valley and Lamai Wedge – in the far north of the Serengeti National Park, just south of the border with Kenya. Between July and October the camp has a prime position to see the great wildebeest migration, and is close enough to the Mara River for guests to witness river crossings.
Our view of Lamai Serengeti
Lamai Serengeti has a superb location and very good pedigree, and we’ve no doubt that it is following in the footsteps of its high-quality sister camps. We visited in October 2011, shortly after it opened, when one or two issues needed ironing out (like the food), but overall it was excellent with plenty of character. It may not appeal to some purists who like more elemental bushcamps with campfires and simple rooms; it’s too substantial and smart. However, for great guiding and service, superb views and a touch of luxury, it’s a good choice. Interestingly, for such a new camp it’s already proving extremely popular!
