overview

Lemala Mara, a classic tented safari camp, is an ideal accommodation from which to witness the wildebeest migration as it moves around the Serengeti. Enjoy the camp's privacy and intimacy, personal attention from the staff and of course excellent game viewing. Following the migration route, the camp is located in a secluded area in Ndutu between December and March and moves to the Mara River area in the northern Serengeti between June and October.

When in Ndutu, Lemala Mara is tucked away in an acacia grove and much of the area's wildlife is attracted to the permanent water and salt licks in the spillway that extends from Lake Ndutu to Kosini. In the latter part of the year, the camp is set on an isolated hill that overlooks the northern Serengeti plains, putting you in the front-row seats as the wildebeest and zebra herds make their way to the crocodile-infested Mara River.

Traveller Reviews

  • Lemala Serengeti – Overall a nice, clean camp. This camp was worth the additional cost that we had to pay. We were very happy that we had made the move to the Central Serengeti as this surrounding area was not up in flames and the wildlife was in greater abundance. Also, the tents felt more spacious and cooler nights made it easier to sleep.

  • What an amazing holiday - thank you! I can't believe the animals we saw. The migration was in the Masai Mara & we saw an unbelievable amount of animals in 2 days. We even sat & watched 2 lionesses with 6 cubs (about 1 month old) for an hour. We also saw a leopard in a tree with its kill.
