Everyone, from the ones who welcomed us with warm wash cloths to wash off the dust, to our steward who had hot water bottles to warm our beds, to the servers who had our drinks ready by the bush tv, was so very attentive and friendly! I do not know how it could have been any better! Such an experience!... More

We had a great time at the Lemala camp, the staff was amazing always ready to assist with anything and always with a smile, the food was wonderful and so were the accommodations. I would go back in an instant! The gravity shower worked great and I loved the wake up calls in the morning that included coffee brought to... More

We had come from several elegant properties and didn't know what to expect from a tented camp. From the minute we arrived and the manager Gregory greeted us, we were well taken care of with very clean, updated tents, good food, hot showers and a staff that truly cared about our experience on the Serengeti. Our guide, Tall Peter, was... More

My visit to Lemala Mara Tented Camp exceeded my expectations. The accommodations, food, staff and guest were absolutely fantastic. The bed in the camp was the most comfortable. This was the best trip I ever experience so far.

A tented camp which acts like a 4 star hotel. Gregory and his team work hard to ensure their guests are treated like VIPs. A special mention for Praygood who looked after our tent and water requirements so well, and Davis our driver/guide who made sure we saw as much wildlife as possible, including an amazing 40 minute river crossing.

Firstly its worth noting that we were very lucky to have the camp to ourselves for the first two nights of our three night stay - absolutely fantastic! Nevertheless I'm sure Lemala Mara would have made just as fantastic a camp even if it had been full. Staff were attentive, welcoming and bright and the team of Nelson, Pray God... More

Very impressed with traditional decor, leather bound books and lots of space in bedroom and lounge/dining tents. We were at the end of our safari when we came here so Davis, our entertaining guide had a difficult job as we had seen so much already! However he found us cheetah, wildebeest crossings and more. We even managed to have a... More

Lemala Mara was exceptional! My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights with my parents as part of our safari adventure. We were astounded as to how welcoming, organized, and tidy the tented camp was. The food was divine, and the staff, who was led by Nelson, was always smiling and kind. Nelson and his crew always went out... More

We had an exceptional stay at Lemala Mara. When you arrive, what's available under canvas in the far north Serengeti is mind boggling. Interior design, food, service, comfort, all are above and beyond what is expected. We had a truly magnificent memorable stay. I couldn't fault any of it and would highly recommend it to all.
