GUIDE ON LAMAI SERENGETI (NOMAD) IN TANZANIA
Between July and October, northern Serengeti becomes the site of high-action when the wildebeest migration crosses the Mara River with the goal of reaching the sweet grass plains of Masai Mara in Kenya. It is an out-of-this-world experience as over 1.5 million wildebeests migrate to the greener pastures of Kenya, mingling with the hundreds of thousands of zebras and impalas.
Nestled in the far remote corners of the northern Serengeti National Park lies Nomad's premium luxury safari camp of Lamai Serengeti. This camp was one of its first permanent settlements in this remote location and sits atop Kogakuria Kopje, close to the Mara River. At Lamai Serengeti, every dream trip that you have had about East Africa comes true in the form of an ideal safari holiday experience.
Accommodation At Lamai SerengetiThe first thing you notice about Lamai Serengeti is how symbiotically the safari camp blends into its surroundings and provides upscale luxury amidst the Tanzanian wilderness as part of your exceptional bespoke travel experiences with AfricanMecca Safaris. Careful and opulent design fills every corner and crevice of this northern location camp to truly unify habitats of the wild and humans into one. Because all rooms are situated on the kopje, and there being only eight rooms, there are fewer guests in camp to enjoy personalized and uninterrupted services alongside spectacular views for all to enjoy.
The accommodations at this Nomad Tanzania camp are divided into two areas, a main lodge consisting of eight rooms and a private lodge of four rooms. Each area has a secluded bar, dining space, library, and natural rock pool. The skillful architects have crafted luxurious rooms out of canvas, plaster, natural poles and rocks found on the kopje.
This provides a more unique and distinct living experience for all guests. Relaxing on a boulder and watching elephants stroll by the backyard of this Tanzania camp is a noteworthy part of an ultimate safari vacation. The cozy netted beds, light and air ventilated open door and window areas, loungers with plush cushions, carved wooden side tables under brass lamps, earthen pottery, weaved rugs and quirky seating are all part of the surprise that comes with staying at such a premium accommodation during your safari.
The bathrooms are fitted with all modern amenities, such as twin basins running hot and cold water, flush toilets, full-length mirrors, and shower area. However, it is the weaved baskets, paper lampshades and stone sink area which differentiate a stay at Lamai Serengeti from a standard hotel room. The lounges are decorated with thatched high lamps and natural tone seating area on wooden floors separated from other areas for privacy and is intended to provide every comfort and joy to AfricanMecca Safaris guests.
Safari At Lamai SerengetiThe unmatched game drive experience of a Serengeti migration safari is certainly the highlight for all guests. An AfricanMecca photo safari of Northern Tanzania welcomes guests to take in all the surrounding splendor of Africa’s renowned Serengeti visiting it during its best times though dependent on your interests.
The landscape around Lamai Serengeti is unique in that the numerous kopjes and year-round greenery keeps this area alive even before and after the migration season. The landscape is inviting to all herbivore game such as giraffes, impala, buffalo, topi, gazelles and many more found frequenting the area daily. When prey is bountiful, the predator does not stay far behind. Thus, sightings of lions, leopards, cheetah and plentiful crocodiles are frequent.
The knowledgeable and experienced guides have spent over 15 years in this area, and their expertise with tracking game and the migration is far reaching. All vehicles are equipped with high frequency communication channels to ensure best chances for viewing game and migration closely. Centralized communications between all safari vehicles allows AfricanMecca guides to exchange tracking intelligence of sounds, last sightings and footprints to maximize on closest and unique wildlife encounters.
Watching conquests, defeats, frenzied chases and mating is an indescribable experience which can only sink in after it’s been witnessed in its full magnificence and grandeur. After your morning game drive, delicious breakfast awaits you while the exhilarating planned activities later in the day swirl a sense of adventure to create the perfect day.
For day-long game drives, delicious picnic baskets can be packed and enjoyed hiding behind a rock or along the river banks that dot the never-ending Tanzanian landscape. Walking safari and hot-air balloon flight tour can also be added to your itinerary. Make Lamai Serengeti in Tanzania a part of your next wildlife safari and take a part of the Serengeti home.
Dining At Lamai SerengetiThe chef preparing your meals at Lamai Serengeti releases aromas of scrumptiousness and splendor. Full linen service is accompanied by dainty silverware and china, and the friendly staff awaits to fulfill every whim and craving. Because animals are most active in the early morning, aromatic tea and coffee can be enjoyed at the lodge prior to setting out of your first-light game drive tour in Serengeti National Park with your safari guide.
These warm and soothing beverages are served alongside freshly-baked rusks and biscuits. At Lamai Serengeti, there is a wide selection of local and imported beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks as well as local fruit juices and herbal infusions. The best freshly-brewed Arabica coffee and chai (tea) are always available to guests.
In case of a prolonged morning game drive, your AfricanMecca assigned guide will be sure to pack a delectable picnic meal along. Lunches and dinners offer a myriad of choices suiting the penchant for all guests’ types including those with specific dietary requirements though with prior notice. Fresh meats, fish, poultry can be prepared instantaneously to suit every palate.
The menu is supplemented with fresh, crispy salads, hearty soups, and desserts from the in-house kitchen. Fresh local fruit, cheese and crackers, and anything from a complete continental menu can be provided by the chef. Often guests relish in a sundowner, which provides the perfect opportunity to safely sneak up on the diverse resident and migratory wildlife of Serengeti Park, and catch the last glimpses of fauna as they settle down for the night.
Watching the beautiful sunset sinking into the horizon while sipping on your favorite drink or two is essentially relaxation redefined. The eager staff awaits requests for a bush dining experience which can be arranged in dedicated sights on the kopje or close to the camp. A bush kitchen supplied with the freshest of ingredients is prepared to serve any culinary feat outdoors.
Homemade desserts, puddings, varied cheese boards, along with any meat, poultry, fish or vegetarian dish can be served. Sitting along bush chairs and tables, the Serengeti bush dining experience is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity not to be missed.

- The best views are from the guest rooms that are at the uppermost part of the property.
- Some of the guest rooms require climbing stairs and may not be ideal for guests with limited mobility – we recommend requesting a room closer to the common areas in the lower section.

- Families who are traveling with children should request a family room due to the distance between individual guest rooms.
