Lamai Serengeti

If you were to visit only one place in the Serengeti, it should be here.

The birds and the bees

The short rains are upon us and the Northern Serengeti is alive. The brown has turned green, which means lots of food and water for all.

Logically, when times are good one is inclined to relax and enjoy the moments. All too true in the animal kingdom – babies are everywhere and it seems the ‘birds and the bees’ have been busy. We have seen some pretty extraordinary sights over the last couple of weeks. 

Traditionally this is a quieter time of year, however the little secret is that a safari in the low season is just as good as peak season, perhaps even better…We love it simply because fauna and flora abound and there are far fewer safari vehicles in the park, it’s like your own little private piece of paradise. 

This year some wildebeest seem to have given up with migrating south, choosing to stay behind and enjoy nature’s bounty. Good for us! Camp is busy - with wildlife - and guests are returning from game drives with wide-eyed wonder, often seeing all of the big five.

No time like family time

We just had a wonderful family join us at Lamai at the end of an incredible safari with Nomad through Northern Tanzania. And, it certainly looks like these guys had a blast.  We love welcoming families to Lamai, there are so many to activities keep everyone entertained, from the most adventurous to the most chilled out. Some people just love lazing about out in their beautiful rooms (who could blame them?) or splash about in the pool like little ellies.  

But, lots of people just want to be out in there in the thick of it. Walking safaris up here are so exciting (remember they are for children over 12 only), and game drives and game viewing is amongst the best in the Serengeti. Finishing off a busy day exploring with glorious sundowners on top of the rock, shared with our resident troop of baboons, gives you a 360° view of the surrounding endless plains. So many magical memories are always made up here, we love it. 

Thank you for sharing your holiday time with us folks and we hope to welcome back to Nomad again sometime soon. 

Karibu sana!
