Serian’s Serengeti Lamai, Serengeti National Park

This intimate mobile camp occupies a remote corner of the northern Serengeti, just a few miles from where vast herds of wildebeest cross the Mara River during the Great Migration.

As well as grandstand views of the Great Migration’s breathtaking river crossings, the game-viewing in surrounding area is outstanding, and guests have even been known to spot all of the Big Five in a single day. Alongside the enormous numbers of wildebeest, topi and zebra that roam these beautiful open plains, fig trees and rocky hillsides, the camp has access to the predator-rich Lamai Wedge and Kogakuria Kopjes.

Set in the shade of grand acacia trees, and built seamlessly into the rocks of the Kogakuria Kopje, the property comprises just six meru-style tents that have been simply furnished in an authentic safari style. The whole property can be booked on an exclusive basis, making it the perfect choice for families or groups seeking a more private safari. As with all Serian properties, the guiding is first-class, with game drives and bush walks both on the menu.

Other itineraries in Tanzania

  • We have travelled with TUTC six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. We had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble.
