Yellow Zebra Safaris exceeded our expectations! They provided excellent customer service, open communication at all times, seamless travel arrangements, wonderful lodgings and excellent safaris lead by highly experienced wildlife game drivers. It was an incredible time!

We spent two wonderful weeks on a safari with the Wild Source in northern Tanzania. Kuria Hills Lodge was our last stop - and quite a treat. Our other lodging was wonderful - tent camps in spectacular locations surrounded by wildlife. But, after many days on the road the luxury of Kuria Hills was welcome. What a way to finish...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Offering unrivalled luxury, LEMALA KURIA HILLS LODGE is situated in the Wogakurya Hills, close to the Mara River and within the main corridor of the world-famous wildebeest migration. Large boulders and kopjes form the prominent features of the site and each guest tent has been carefully positioned amongst these to ensure privacy and spectacular vistas of the gentle grassed slopes, open woodland and tree lined watercourses, which all make up the scenic north Serengeti landscape. A separate tent in the wild forms the Melengali Spa where you can indulge in massages and manicures in a peaceful, natural setting. Whether you are here for the migration between June and October or for privacy and seclusion at other times of the year, you will find Lemala Kuria Hills a place of incredible luxury and beauty where you can relax or explore the amazing wildlife, landscapes and habitats of the northern Serengeti with our superb guides either on foot or in our custom-designed 4x4s. ... more   less
