We stayed at Lemala Mara for three nights as part of our honeymoon and had a very special and unique experience. The accommodations were very luxurious and the tents were well maintained and very spacious. The hospitality of the staff was also magnificent and your needs are well attended. Food was also well prepared and quite delicious, especially considering you...

Really enjoyed our 2 night stay here, the staff were lovely, and so attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Welcomed to camp with a cold glass of juice (well received after a dusty, hot game drive!) Setting was beautiful, very close to a river where we could hear the hippos through the night! Food was good, tents ever so comfortable...

Fantastic, luxurious all inclusive 3 night stay at this unique camp. Staff were so friendly and welcoming. Our rooms were comfortable and the "talking shower" was one of the highlight for us. Of course, the lions grunting and roaring through the night nearby were pretty exciting too! Classic luxury!!!!

We had come from several elegant properties and didn't know what to expect from a tented camp. From the minute we arrived and the manager Gregory greeted us, we were well taken care of with very clean, updated tents, good food, hot showers and a staff that truly cared about our experience on the Serengeti.

My visit to Lemala Mara Tented Camp exceeded my expectations. The accommodations, food, staff and guest were absolutely fantastic. The bed in the camp was the most comfortable. This was the best trip I ever experience so far.

A tented camp which acts like a 4 star hotel. Gregory and his team work hard to ensure their guests are treated like VIPs. A special mention for Praygood who looked after our tent and water requirements so well, and Davis our driver/guide who made sure we saw as much wildlife as possible, including an amazing 40 minute river crossing.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
LEMALA MARA NDUTU are the ultimate mobile camps that move between Ndutu (December - March) to northern Serengeti from July through to October. In both locations it is within touching distance of the birthing areas of the Wildebeest in the South and in the North it offers views over the Mara River. Set under large Euclea trees in the heart of the best game viewing area of the Serengeti. Here, in this immense remote wilderness, guests can enjoy fabulous landscapes and terrific game viewing with practically no crowds. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high, but nothing compared to when the migration starts arriving when the area then turns into a wildlife paradise par excellence. ... more   less
