We had the most incredible stay at Lamai! We stayed at the camp for four nights as part of our honeymoon and were so sad to leave. We absolutely loved our guide and had multiple close encounters with lions, leopards, cheetahs and countless elephants/giraffes. We even saw the rare white rhino on our last day! Lamai is very well managed,... More

This is one of the best area in Northern Serengeti with a stunning camp built by Nomad on a kopjes. Lamai is best known for the epic river crossings by the migrating wildebeest herds that take place here between July and October. When you stay at Lamai you feel blessed by the nature...looking around from the campsites is something that... More

We had the most wonderful stay at Lamai with close encounters with leopards and lions. Having made many Safaris in many countries in Africa we have so far never had the chance to observe leopards the way we did in the area around Lamai. Beautifully situated the camp itself had everything you could wish for in comfort and with impeccable... More

After spending nearly a month in Tanzania doing volunteer work our family spent the last 8 days on safari in Northern Tanzania. The first 6 days were spent rugged-camping in the bush. We ended our trip with two lovely nights at Lamai Serengeti, one of 9 Nomad-Tanzania camps. A permanent camp, discreetly tucked into a rock outcropping, this camp is... More

We are seasoned safari travellers and have been to quite a few lodges over the years. Lamai is probably the best - but not necessarily because of the rooms and great food - both are amazing, but because of the team that run it - nothing is too much trouble and one really gets a sense that everyone is happy...

Lamai Serengetti is situated in an isolated location in the middle of the northern serengeti. The lodge grounds are magnificent and the cottages have several feet of bush between them so you feel secluded from all other guests. We woke up each morning to a friendly knock and had fresh brewed coffee and cookies brought to us each morning. The... More

We chose to stay for 5 days at Lamai for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary celebration and it was just the most perfect choice. We were made to feel at home the instant we arrived and the whole team worked tirelessly to cater for our every need and more. We found the temperature very comfortable due to the altitude and we...

The Lamai camp had the perfect location, on a rocky outcrop that looked out over a huge expanse of beautiful, wild savannah. The accommodation huts (calling them “huts” makes them sound small, which they certainly weren't but I don't know what else to call them) were well spaced out and hidden among the rocks and trees, giving us the impression...

The room was jaw dropping! The view from the room and from the deck surrounding the room was beautiful. We keep busy every day with game drives and meals, so unfortunately we didn't get to spend much time in the room itself. It was a 3 minute walk from the lodge to the room, definitely secluded. Announcing the dinner menu,... More

Of 15 camps or so we have visited over the years, the setting of Lamai Nomad is the best of any. The views from the rooms and the main areas are just stunning, heart achingly beautiful. After 3 nights it was so sad to leave that view. Similarly it is the most amazing location for a swimming pool looking down... More
