Permanent Tented Camp
If you’re looking for a stylish, high end tented camp in a central area of Serengeti, Lemala Ewanjan must be on your list. It is a touch of sophistication in the bush and, at certain times of the year, you might just find thousands of pesky wildebeest outside your tent!
If you travel west from Seronera airstrip (central Serengeti) towards Makoma Hill, a track head leads to a small rock kopje. Here, nestled into the scrub and rock is Ewanjan. It’s a fabulous location if you want to base yourself in central Serengeti to see the diverse resident game that is present throughout the year – and it’s geat for big cats. If you happen to be travelling in the months of April to June or again November and even December, you also have a high chance of catching the migration as the herds move north or south.
Lemala Ewanjan has twelve permanent tented rooms, a lovely camp fire and a separate lounge and dining tent. Whilst it’s only about 40 minutes’ drive from Seronera airstrip, so in effect quite a busy area, the camp melts away into its surroundings and you can hardly see it until you actually arrive, and it’s uncommon to see many vehicles pass. It is a high-end camp, with a matching price tag; perfect if you’re looking for a few nights in style in the bush.
If you’re coming with the family, the Lemala group of camps offer Lemala Cubs club, offering 6-11 year olds various exciting activities such as making plaster casts of animal prints, trying out bows and arrows or Maasai spears, and cooking on a campfire.
Lemala also has sister camps in Ndutu (southern Serengeti) from December to March, and by the Mara River (northern Serengeti) from July to October, so if you like Lemala’s style – which we do – you can you could enjoy a twin centre Serengeti safari with them.
