OPEN JULY TO OCTOBER, 9 EN-SUITE SEASONAL TENTS, MINIMUM AGE: 6YRS
Lemala Mara is the ultimate seasonal camp in Serengeti, within touching distance of the Mara River and set under large Euclea trees in the heart of the best game viewing area of the Northern Serengeti. Here, in this immense remote wilderness, almost double the size of the Masai Mara, guests can enjoy fabulous landscapes and terrific game viewing with practically no crowds. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high, with prides of lion up to 30 strong, but nothing compared to when the migration starts arriving from June onwards. The area then turns into a wildlife paradise par excellence until November when the migration heads back south leaving behind a healthy population of resident predators and grazers. The migration and resident game affirm this area’s reputation as one of the finest in Africa.
Two of the largest crossing points on the river are nearby and occasionally guests may observe the exciting crossings from the comfort of the camp. The spectacular Lamai triangle, Wogakuria kopjes and Kogatende airstrip are all very easily accessible.
Lemala Mara's naturalists/guides have exceptional local knowledge, enabling them to take guests to where the action is, in open 4x4 vehicles, away from the crowds. Lemala's vehicles are specifically designed for long game drives and come equipped with comfortable seats, charging units and a large refrigerator.
The camp organizes great picnic breakfasts and lunches for those who want to go on full day game drives. Private vehicles can be booked in advance at extra cost and are subject to availability.
Lemala’s high specification mobile tents are some of the most spacious and comfortable seasonal tents in Tanzania. Each tent is fitted with 2 double beds or 1 king size leather bed, warm duvets, flush toilet, large safari shower, running water, wooden cabinets and flooring, 24-hour solar lighting, outside lounger, games table and much more.
The mess tent has separate living and dining areas with a central bar and is beautifully decorated with leather sofas, chandeliers, side cabinets, rugs and chests. In the evening, guests gather around the campfire for sundowners to share the day’s experiences before retiring to the dining room for some wine and delicious food.
Lemala Mara is an exceptional camp with a beautiful location offering a high quality safari experience with excellent guiding. The camp can be booked on a private basis. Guests arriving in their own vehicles should ideally spend 2 nights at Lemala Ewanjan, our lovely camp in Central Serengeti, before making the 6-hour drive to Lemala Mara.
