The camp was a fantastic experience. The setting was truly remarkable and the staff were so welcoming and helpful. Miraji was our superb guide who showed us some lifetime memorable experiences. The mess evenings were great as staff created lovely meals. Best holiday experience ever.

My husband and I stayed at Lemala Mara for 3 wonderful days. Our tent was large, comfortable & beautifully furnished, with a 3 piece ensuite bathroom. The staff were very friendly. Their command of English ranged from terrific (the manager) to ok (serving staff). We had an amazing driver guide, Miraji! He was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and went...

The camp was in a great location, close to the crossing points and surrounded by animals who paid us visits both during the day and at night, grazing next to our tents! The food was great and we really liked the family style eating arrangements. Every other camp had individual tables but this one had one large table. As a...

Fantastic location near the Mara River. Mathew and his team made us feel so welcome, everything about this place is wonderful, food, service, atmosphere. Camping in a remote location, but with every possible convenience, staying here for three nights was an experience never to be forgotten.

We were staying at the Lemala Mara camp in the heart of the Serengeti in Northern Tanzania. Waking up to the sun rising over the vast grasslands, with herds of Wildebeest and Zebra wandering across the horizon, is a unique experience. As is the sounds of their 'munching' just outside the tents throughout the night. The distant roars of the...

On every trip from camp our guide found outstanding wildlife, and the humbling natural spectacle of watching the Mara river crossing was full of drama with crocs lurking to pick off the stragglers. The camp itself was beautifully furnished, with African fabrics alongside colonial style furniture. The chef produced great food from a very basic kitchen, and drinks and supper...

This place is exceptional. Seeing the animals and the great migration is a life-changing event, but even the camp itself was a special experience on its own. Peter, our guide, was wonderful and even drove us to the Kenyan border where we had wine and cheese. One day we arrived back from our morning drive to find a lunch just...

Lemala Mara Ndutu is an experience in itself! After having stayed for three nights at Lemala Ewanjan, we were pleased with the consistent, high level of comfort and service provided across all of the Lemala camps, including Lemala Mara Ndutu. Perfectly situated with a view of the Mara river and the wildebeest migration, Lemala offered luxurious tented camps with butler...

At first when we arrived, there was a group of loud travellers completely occupied the public lounge area. Quickly the discomfort resentment of this camp was resolved efficiently and elegantly by manager Greg and his team. Our two days stay in Lemala was amazing. This is not the first time we have "talking shower", our tent attendant was serving our...

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
