We spent the last three nights of our recent Tanzanian safari at the Lamai Serengeti. It was fabulous from start to finish. We were made to feel very welcome by our hosts Nick and Jana, and all the staff were very attentive and courteous. The room was unbelievable - spectacular views and very comfortable. Hot water bottle was a bit of a shock at first (what *is* that in my bed?) but very comforting once identified! From the early morning wake up with fresh coffee and biscuits, to the delicious packed breakfast eaten al fresco, the gourmet food served at the camp, and Paulo our guide who knew so much and tried his utmost to make sure we saw everything we came for - it was just wonderful. If we could return to only one of the places we visited in Tanzania this would be our choice without a doubt. Simply sublime.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If you were to visit only one place in the Serengeti, it ought be here. This is no idle boast; the iconic Kogakuria kopje in northern Serengeti is a prime site and Lamai Serengeti sits tucked amongst the rocks with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Beautifully designed open-fronted rooms, a spacious lounge and clear pool provide an ideal place to escape to for some relaxation in between your wildlife adventures, for both families, groups and couples. The area boasts year-round fantastic game viewing, including the Big 5, and between July and November, the wildebeest migration moves through, crossing the Mara River in dramatic fashion just 20mins from the lodge. ... more less
