“We love every minute of it... its amazing...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

We stayd in the Mara camp for 4 nights and we loved every minute of it. The atmosfhere is unique, very quiet and remote... We didt see almost any cars. Vera the manager is a unbelaveble capable manager, she knows everything about the wildlife and the plants etc...

We were the only guests at that moment but with Vera we had so many things to discuss that time fly ...
We saw the wildebeest crossing the mara, thousands and thousands... and the noise they make! The tents are very comfortable with your one bathroom an suite. The bucket shower is lovely with nice warm water. Its an unspoiled part of the serengetie and i cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: Every tents has a beautifull vieuw, there are 6 tents.

Dear Zilly4891,

Thank you very much for your kind review of the newest addition to AfrikaAfrika's portfolio of small, eco and community oriented camps. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed this very unique area of the Serengeti and also that you got to experience the migration with all the sites and sounds that it entails. Our camp is very close to the Mara River and it is always a pleasure to hear that our guests get to experience the amazing phenomenon of seeing thousands of animals struggle to get to the other side of the river. The location of our camp is exclusive since it is the only one on the northern side of the Mara River in Tanzania which creates an exceptional atmosphere or remoteness and of course the pleasure of not having to see other people or cars!

We hope to host you soon again here or at another of our camps in the very near future.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Uniquely situated in the northern reaches of the Serengeti National Park, and with unrivaled access to the short grass plains adjacent to the Maasai Mara National Reserve, sits the Lamai Wedge. This slice of Africa has just one camp: The Serengeti Mara Camp. Here AfrikaAfrika offers a tailor made, private wildlife experience in one of the last true wilderness areas of Africa. The area is quiet and peaceful, with abundant game, and no people. Our small, discreet, classic mobile camp operates in a socially and environmentally responsible way, placing a minimal human footprint. It is our vision to see African natural environments protected and local communities develop through good stewardship and revenues generated by responsible tourism. The Northern Serengeti is renowned for its shear size, primeval landscapes and large populations of plains game that seasonally migrate to follow the nutritious pastures. It has become famous for the migration of millions of wildebeest and the viewing of dramatic river crossings, which occur close to our camp. The sheer density of wildlife makes it also a predator haven with frequent sightings of lion, leopard and cheetah. Predator interaction is common. Resident game is prolific even when the migration is not present making the Lamai Wedge an all year round destination, as the Maasai Mara. Year-round birding is superb. The stark beauty of the western escarpment and the open short grass plains provides a great backdrop to wildlife viewing. Sitting amidst this ancient and sacred land between two of conservation's great success stories, Serengeti Mara Camp provides an exclusive mobile camp experience - quiet, beautiful, remote. Sights, smells and sounds remind you this is a slice of paradise on earth. But the most magical moment at Serengeti Mara Camp might just be the sunrises from the little outdoor seating area in front of your tent. Here Africa will remind you that this is the land that will always attract those who still dream. ... more   less
