Experience the vast Serengeti plains and abundant game while staying at this gorgeous 15-suite camp in a secluded spot, taking in views from the lounge-bar, watching wildlife from the deck, soaking in your private plunge pool and enjoying drinks around the atmospheric campfire.
Lemala Nanyukie’s location is key, set away from yet within easy range of the popular Seronera region of Serengeti National Park. This means first rate game viewing and superb sightings especially of big cats plus quiet downtime and the feeling that you have Serengeti’s ‘endless plains’ to yourself.
The camp is luxurious but pleasantly low key and relaxed. Each of the suites has oodles of space including an attractive lounge, spacious bedroom, bathroom and, arguably best of all, a private deck with a sunken sofa and indulgent plunge pool.
You join other guests in the open plan lounge and dining area, built on a raised wooden deck beneath a gently curved canvas roof which, coupled with ceiling fans, keeps the interior cool. It’s open to the front for sweeping plains views. Relax as you recline on a sofa sipping a drink from the bar, maybe heading down to the lower level sofa. Meals are served under cover in the main area and on the open deck. The pool is off to one side built into a continuation of the elevated deck.
Safaris take place in the relative cool of early morning and late afternoon. Game drives are in open-sided 4x4s with three rows of seats for a maximum of six passengers so everyone has an excellent view. Short walking safaris are offered, bringing you into closer proximity with nature, seeking and identifying animal tracks, plants and insects and possibly tracking larger game. All activities are led by highly skilled and experienced guides. If you want to splash out a hot air balloon ride above the Serengeti and its wildlife herds followed by a bush breakfast is a superb way to begin your day. Families are welcome and the Lemala Cubs programme offers a range of activities tailored to youngsters to keep them fully entertained while their parents relax.
