Secluded between the boulders and kopjes of the famous Mara River in Serengeti National Park is a tented safari camp that not only offers splendid Big 5 and Great Migration viewing but is built according to the best practices in global sustainable architecture. Lemala Kuria Hills – named after the ancestral home of the local Kuria tribe – not only has vistas to the Kenyan border and across the golden Lamai grasslands but is also constructed with green building materials with a special concern for maintaining the natural integrity of the area.
Each of the 15 luxury tents (14 of which face the burnt orange sunset; one overlooks the sunrise) and are sited under mature trees, is built from reclaimed steel, glass, sustainable decking and composite canvas, with solar and wind power making it as carbon neutral as possible. They also house emperor (super-king) sized beds and private plunge pools for refreshing post-siesta dips.
Whether relaxing in the lodge’s elevated lounge, enjoying the expansive views over gently rolling hills, heading out on a game drive, or serenely floating over the Serengeti plains in a hot-air balloon, you can expect to be delighted by the game viewing and quieted by the peace and tranquillity of Kuria Hills.
