The most exciting news on the East Africa safari circuit is the opening of the Lamai Serengeti camp in northern Tanzania.Created by Nomad Tanzania, a dynamic little company known for its stylish, environmentally sensitive bush camps, the compound brings unparalleled luxury to a rise in the remote Kogakuria Kopje region of the vast Serengeti Plain, a dream base for witnessing the annual July-to-December great migration of a million-plus wildebeest, along with the tens of thousands of predators who follow them.

Comprising twelve thatch-roofed tent-cottages -with relaxed-chic decor by former World of Interiors stylist Jo Cook - Lamai Serengeti is divided into two camps, one with eight accommodations, the other - ideal for families or small groups of friends-with four; each of these mini-camps has its own dining pavilion and rock-sided pool. In addition to bringing human creature comforts to the bush, Nomad Tanzania boasts some of the country’s top guides and a client roster that includes Bill Gates and Donna Karan.
