Reviews of Lamai Serengeti
They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
We were privileged to be able spend such a wonderful 4 days here. Apart from the last night we had the Lamai camp to our ourselves. Sacha and his team were great hosts and there was nothing that was too much trouble. Our room (no. 2) had simply stunning views across the plains toward Kenya and you could have sat there taking in the scenery and wildlife all day and not got bored at all. Our guide Gabriel who we had met before at Katavi (another Nomad Camp) was simply great and so knowledgeable. We told him that we had the best experience of our all our trips to Africa in those 4 days.
The food and overall standard of service was simply excellent.
I can't think of any holiday where our 8 days away seemed like 3 weeks! Lamai is a destination that everyone who has a passion for East Africa should go to. It's positioning high above the plains provides a really special location with unrivaled views.
Going 'out of season' had the benefit of few visitors but with great wildlife experiences - only the masses of wildebeest were missing but we saw those in the south in the first 4 days
Lamai Serengeti review
This was easily the best camp on our safari. We had previously come across Sascha and Tam when they were managing Beho Beho in 2010.
They have a degree of enthusiasm and professionalism which was not equalled elsewhere.
This lodge was different from Sayari Mara, as it is located in the hills and blends with it's surroundings. Here you see the cats and we concentrated on them. We had another superb guide and got close ups of a Cheetah finishing her dinner. We saw a different part of the Serengeti and had a wonderful time.
Our Banda was close to the Main House and it was nice to have our guides join us for drinks before dinner to talk about what we had seen and to plan for tomorrow. The food was delicious and varied with every meal. We had breakfast on the Lamai Wedge every morning, lunch back in camp, and a delicious dinner in the main house every evening. The managers Sacha and Tamilyn, were excellent and made everyone feel like part of a family. They had the ability to mix the guests, and were very knowledgeable about Tanzania. We loved the feel of the open bandas and the views down onto the plains. We also loved the decor of our open banda.
We would love to return again.

A truly wonderful experience with the most beautiful camp in all of Tanzania.
Waking up every morning to see the sunrise over the Serengeti was excellent and the Nomad guides were top notch. Will definitely go back and use Nomad again.
