Great guide Driver (John Ngoma )- saw cheetah hunt, lots of lion, leopard and the migration was already heading into Seronera. Friendly staff greeting with cold face towels scented, refreshing after a dusty safari. Tent was pleasant. Dinner was entertaining with the staff singing and dancing, great snacks before dinner around the bush tv ( fire ). Dinner was good.

We loved all of the Lemala camps, including Ewanjan. The staff was helpful and attentive. They took care of us, but also taught us about their culture which was an extra treat. The food was good. And the zebras walking by the tent at 1am were amazing. I didn't want to go home! If you want a safari experience in... More

Other reviews have highlighted the first class service, lodging and location offered by Lemala. I wish to add that our guide, Baraka, devoted himself to making our wildlife viewing as exciting and rewarding as possible. He is an excellent driver and has a great personality. When you spend days with a guide, it is important to have one with both... More

This is an absolutely beautiful camp. One evening there were zebras grazing outside our tent and one afternoon giraffes in the field in front of the station. The view is gorgeous and serene. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Having coffee served in the room at sunrise was a special treat and the fire circle before dinner with snacks... More

We stayed here for two nights and it was amazing. During the day there were about twenty zebras grazing at the front of the tents. We sat on the lounge out the front and watched them. We really were right amongst it. There was a giraffe within ten metres of the eating area and on the last night a lion... More

They surprised us with an anniversary dessert cake to share with the other guests. Sat in front of our tent before dinner watching the parade of animals going by. Hot air balloon ride in the... More

Such a shame that you only stayed 1 night with us but it means you will have to come back and enjoy more time in camp with us. Am delighted the anniversary cake went down well and I do hope you have fabulous photo memories of your time in Tanzania. Warm regards Veronica More

Our stay at Lemala Ewanjan was outstanding. Tents were very comfortable and provided all of our needs. Our mornings began with a pot of hot coffee and biscuits/cookies. Breakfast & dinner were delicious and our packed lunch for "our time on safari" was tasty. The staff made every effort to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The tour company... More

Lemala Ewanjan is a tented camp experience in the Serengeti you don't want to miss! From the moment you arrive and are greeted, you know you are in a special place with a very special staff. Well situated, very comfortable beds and extremely clean rooms, abundant wildlife, great "bush tv", talking showers, and amazing customer service.

Dining under the stars, hearing lions roar in camp in the morning, watching giraffes from our beds....what is not to love. This was a wonderful tented camp experience. The staff were helpful and friendly.

Dining under the stars is magical and with the clear skies one forgets just how many stars we have in our universe and seeing them in the Serengeti with the sounds of the animals carrying far and beyond the plains is something one finds hard to put into words. I am so pleased the giraffe ventured in and that our... More
