I should have reviewed Lemala Ewanjan last year and simply never got around to it, but the Lemala camps are, without question, uniformly wonderful, with terrific people, wonderful tents and public areas and delicious food. Ewanjan is particularly impressive -- set in the Makoma Hills in the central Serengeti on a vast plain with the hills behind, and fronted by...

This is a remarkable experience for any safari traveller. A tented camp with outstanding facilities, excellent food, comfortable tents and most importantly, friendly and efficient service. We were there for three nights using it for a base to see such astounding sights as the Great Migration, all types of cats (lions, leopards and cheetahs), hippos, elephants, giraffes, hyenas and beautifully...

Highly recommend this unforgettable experience! My wife and I booked a 3 night stay at the Lemala Ewanjan camp in the Serengeti for part of our honeymoon. We had previously looked at lodges in the Serengeti and decided that we wanted to be closer to nature and go with the tented camp (how often do you get to experience that?)....

My wife and I were there for three nights in Feb 2016. The staff is top notch and does everything they can to make your experience memorable. Our tent was huge, the bed comfortable.

A terrific location in the Serengeti. Yes you are in a tent, but it's large with a separate bathroom including a shower and western toilet. The floors are wood and the furnishings are very comfortable. The food was very good though there is a very limited selection. The service was exceptional.

What a great way to complete our safari in Northern Tanzania. From our warm welcome to our goodbye, everything about this camp was perfect.
