Lemala Mara is a seasonal camp in Serengeti, within touching distance of the Mara River and set under large Euclea trees in the heart of the best game viewing area of the Northern Serengeti.
The camp is open from 1 June to 31 October and has 9 luxury tents (accommodating 18 to 22 guests). The new high specification tents are extremely spacious and comfortable. Each tent is fitted with 2 double beds or 1 king-size leather bed, warm duvets, flush toilet, large safari shower, running water, wooden cabinets and flooring, 24-hour solar lighting, outside lounger and games table.
At the camp's superb location, guests will be amongst the vast herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra. Two of the largest crossing points on the river are nearby and occasionally guests can observe the river crossings from the comfort of camp. The spectacular Lamai triangle, Wogakuria kopjes and Kogatende airstrip are all very easily accessible.
Lemala Mara's naturalists/guides have exceptional local knowledge, enabling them to take guests to where the action is, in open 4x4 vehicles, away from the crowds. The vehicles are specifically designed for long game drives and come equipped with comfortable seats, charging units and a large refrigerator. The camp organises great picnic breakfasts and lunches for those who want to go on full-day game drives.
Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high, with prides of lion up to 30 strong, but nothing compared to when the migration starts arriving from June onwards. Through June, July and August the wildebeest continue moving through the area, crossing and re-crossing the Mara River before heading north towards the Masai Mara. Several large herds remain behind and weather changes could easily bring the vast herds flooding back into the area from the Mara. Migration and predator action lasts up to the end of October, assuring this area's reputation as one of the finest wildlife areas in Africa.
