Nomad Lamai is one of if not the best places I've ever stayed. The pure natural beauty would be enough but couple that with amazing service and stunning well decorated bungalows, just puts this lodge above the rest. My suite, the highest on the property afforded spectacular views right from your bed. Large decks with views for miles. I could...

We spent five nights at Lami Serengeti Lodge in February 2017. This is a very tastefully furnished lodge. From the chalets you have a wonderful view to the plains an hills of northern Serengeti. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The meals were excellent and also the special diet for my wife was carefully prepared. So we felt very...

My husband organised a night at Lamai as a birthday treat for me. For me, Lamai is the best safari camp Africa has to offer in each and every way. Northern Serengeti is very busy during the migration, but I find is possibly even nicer during the 'out of season' time. The Mara river and the Lamai area offer year...

The setting is spectacular. From a distance you can’t even see the lodge, the bungalows are so well integrated in the surroundings. The open plan interior design is simply beatiful. The view is stunning, even actually lying down in the bed. Our last night we woke up hearing the lions just below us, and watched the sun rise. Hard to...

From the moment you arrive at the airport to the time you leave, a team member form Lamai Serengeti was there to ensure my wife and I were not only looked after, but well taken care of and extremely comfortable. The lodges were incredible, the food was delicious and always different, the pool was a very welcome perk for the...

A must visit if you are on safari in Tanzania. First because its location, on a rocky outcropping in the middle of the Serengeti is so unique, the great animals are all around you, and, in fact, some big ones live right on the Lamai hill. The accommodations are fantastic, casitas with all the luxuries including walkout decks with incredible...

Lamai Serengeti is right up there with the best places we have ever stayed, everything about the place is simply superb. The setting is stunning and lodge beautiful.

This was my fourth time to go on safari and my second time in the Serengeti and I was absolutely blown away by Lamai. It's just one of those places that is perfect in every category. The rooms are stunning, spacious and comfortable. Lamai has a unique position, perched on a hilltop, so the views are incredible. We had a...

In this beautiful rocky outcrop above the plain, Helen, Clyde, Peter and their team provide perfect hospitality in a stunning setting. We loved the cocktails and the communal dinners at the big table with other guests from around the world.

Having spent 9 days on safari at 3 great locations, Lamai was our favourite. Helen and Clyde run an incredible lodge, that's luxurious and comfortable while being very relaxed and super friendly. All the staff are brilliant, with special props to the chefs, the food at Lamai is absolutely delicious. Rooms are just amazing, huge, secluded individual lodges with open...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you were to visit only one place in the Serengeti, it should be here. This is no idle boast; the iconic Kogakuria kopje in northern Serengeti. A few years ago the Tanzanian government chose a handful of responsible companies to build small permanent lodges in this remote sector of the Serengeti. Nomad Tanzania was offered the prime site and Lamai Serengeti now sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje 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
