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...

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.

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.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
LEMALA MARA NDUTU are the ultimate mobile camps that move between Ndutu (December - March) to northern Serengeti from July through to October. In both locations it is within touching distance of the birthing areas of the Wildebeest in the South and in the North it offers views over the Mara River. Set under large Euclea trees in the heart of the best game viewing area of the Serengeti. Here, in this immense remote wilderness, guests can enjoy fabulous landscapes and terrific game viewing with practically no crowds. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high, but nothing compared to when the migration starts arriving when the area then turns into a wildlife paradise par excellence. ... more   less
