  • Lamai Serengeti's main mess
  • Each of Lamai's rooms is perfectly styled - both modern and very much Tanzanian. The magnificent views mean you can easily while away an afternoon just simply "being".
  • Styled by Jo Cooke, with furniture made entirely in Tanzania by her husband George, Lamai has a unique and substantial look - both fresh and warm.  The furniture was made by former street-boys who have been trained up by expert furniture-maker, George.
  • The views from the kopje go on for miles...the northern Serengeti and beyond to the Masai Mara.
  • Between July and October, the migration arrives in dramatic style.  Lamai is just a 30minute game drive from this.
  • When the wildebeest herds leave, we have the place pretty much to ourselves.  The resident game heaves a sigh of relief. This is the time to see the Serengeti in wild splendour, dramatic landscapes and a good chance of spotting the Big Five, among much more.

Lamai Serengeti sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, only a few miles from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River. For roughly a quarter of the year, between late July and October, this is where you'll find the migration. Right here, on our doorstep. For the rest of the year, it is wild Serengeti with all the resident game of the Masai Mara but without the people.

Each of the rooms is designed to fit into the complex geometry of the kopje and to make the most of this sensational location, its views and its natural space and light. The rooms are a blend of canvas, plaster and natural poles.

Room Image There are twelve stone and thatch rooms, raised on wooden decking and all en-suite. Three have an adjoining twin room for children, sharing the bathroom. Each en-suite room is open-fronted, with mosquito netting that can be zipped closed, and canvas roll-downs if needed. There are canopied mosquito nets over the beds.

The bathrooms are enclosed by heavy netting, and contain a generous shower with hot and cold running water (provided by a solar system), and flush toilet.

Each room has a comfy day bed and chairs for relaxing on the verandah.;
