Lamai Serengeti is a paradise. The location is spectacular, the lodges without a flaw complete with awesome views and great touches, the service is perfect including the early morning coffees, the dinners are very special, the guiding is unparalleled and Nic and Jana complement this with tremendous hosting.
Staying at Lamai has me considering the need for a new rating category, or the need to go nack and reduce all my previous ratings of other places by 1.
If you only ever take 1 more holiday, make it here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If you were to visit only one place in the Serengeti, it should be here. This is no idle boast; the iconic Kogakuria kopje in northern Serengeti. A few years ago the Tanzanian government chose a handful of responsible companies to build small permanent lodges in this remote sector of the Serengeti. Nomad Tanzania was offered the prime site and Lamai Serengeti now sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Beautifully designed open-fronted rooms, a spacious lounge and clear pool provide an ideal place to escape to for some relaxation in between your wildlife adventures, for both families, groups and couples.The area boasts year-round fantastic game viewing, including the Big 5, and between July and November, the wildebeest migration moves through, crossing the Mara River in dramatic fashion just 20mins from the lodge. ... more less
