Lemala Mara, a mobile 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, then moves to the Mara River area in the northern Serengeti between June and October.

Lemala Mara is set under shady trees in the heart of the northern Serengeti's best game viewing area, giving you front-row seats as the wildebeest and zebra herds make their way to the crocodile-infested Mara River. It is situated very close to the river's popular crossing points, yet tucked away from the busy roads - which means less passing vehicles and more privacy. You will also have access to additional river crossing points where there are less crowds and better viewing opportunities. The camp's tents are spread out far enough to offer guests privacy and spectacular views of the northern Serengeti plains.

There is a communal area located in the mess tent which includes a central bar area and leather sofas to relax in after an exciting day of game viewing.

Lemala Mara Camp Northern Serengeti

Harry Lesner

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 gre ater 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.
