Lamai Serengeti sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, just a few miles from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River.
For roughly a quarter of the year, between late July and October, Lamai Serengeti is where you will find the migration.
Twelve rooms have been designed to fit into the complex geometry of the kopje and to make the most of this sensational location, its views and its natural space and light. These are split between two entirely separate lodges, the Main Lodge of 8 rooms and the smaller Private Lodge of 4 rooms.
The rooms at Lamai Serengeti – a clever blend of canvas, plaster and natural poles – have given our ‘camp designers’ much debate, thought, and – to be honest – a multitude of headaches. The brief was simple: to become the guardian of this kopje, we needed to preserve all the things about it that has made it iconic.
Throughout the year, 4×4 s explore the intricasies of the area, both south of the Mara River and (river state permitting) to the north, while walking safaris are also on offer.The topography lends itself well to being on your feet; small valleys, river lines and rocky kopjes make for frequent changes of scenery…and great cover for approaching wild animals unseen.
In short, at Lamai Serengeti, you can be as busy as you like with game drives and walks, or as lazy as you like enjoying the Serengeti from your room or the swimming pool.
