This is what sundrenched days are for...

Poolside lounging at Mkombe's House Lamai. Northern Serengeti is alive with wildlife sightings around every corner - but that's not to say there shouldn't be room for time out to soak up the sunshine.

If you ever needed an idea for date night...

This is our breathtakingly romantic star bed at Mkombe's House where you can sleep under a celestial cinema, be serenaded all night by the sounds of the wild - and wake to a sunrise over the Serengeti.

Complete escapism awaits at newly opened Mkombe’s House, the only private house in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park.

From Mkombe, with love

Nomad founder, Mkombe Mniko, was a guide who cherished this area and connected strongly with children – and their parents. He was an inspirational man, always smiling, with an exuberance for Africa’s wild places. Mkombe was a huge part of Nomad in the early days and there was huge sadness across the safari world when he sadly passed away in 2008 after a short illness.

Mkombe left behind a legacy of wonderful memories and his child-like excitement for being in wild places will never be forgotten. We’re proud that this little corner of the Serengeti that he loved so much, should carry his name.

The Serengeti… on your schedule

Lovingly designed for close families and friend, this is the only true private home in the whole Serengeti, and it doesn’t get better than this.

We know from decades of our own safaris that the best way to be out in Africa’s wild places is surrounded by your favourite people, and running your safari on your own timetable.

So whether it be with your family, or your very closest friends this House is a place to really escape from it all, with a private guide and vehicle (and private house staff) the northern Serengeti is yours to explore without being dictated by other people’s schedules or preferences.

Home in the Serengeti

Our family’s stay at The Mkombe House truly felt like we were at home in the Serengeti. We watched cape buffalo roam as we swam in the pool and heard lions in the distance. The staff was so kind and knowledgeable and meticulous with their service and care for us. They felt like a part of the family ...

Incredible Destinations

You must let Nomad guide your choice of camps. Over the past week we have passed through three of the most incredible destinations I have ever been to. Comfortably spaced apart so the journey to each was a wonderful adventure. March is also a fantastic time to go. Temperate climate, fresh mornin...
