With such close proximity to the river and plains, guests have the unique opportunity to experience a very close connection with the wilderness.

Lemala Ewajan Tented Camp

Lemala Ewanjan is a deluxe camp with 12 beautiful tented suites set within the game-rich Seronera Valley in a secluded part of Central Serengeti. The camp offers breathtaking views of the Serengeti plains and its prolific wildlife and sunsets.

Asilia Namiri Plains

This is one of the most amazing kept secret of Serengeti. Namiri Plains is an area located in the remote Eastern corner of the park, that has been closed for 20 years to visitors to create a safe haven for cheetah.

The area has been re-opened in July 2014 and Asilia has been appointed as its custodian. This is the only camp located here, and it is composed by only 6 luxury tents in the shade
of giant acacias. It offers a 360° view of wildlife crossing the surrounding plains,
the river area with its perennial vegetation and the dense green reed beds that attract birds and smaller wildlife species.

Asilia Namiri Plains is perfect for travellers who really want an ultimate safari experience, loosing themselves in the majestic nature.

Nomad Lamai Serengeti

This small luxury lodge of only 12 rooms sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje, with panoramic views of the surrounding areas – a few miles from the place where wildebeests cross the Mara River.

Rooms are designed to maximise the panoramic views, but also to give a window onto life on the Kopje.

Lamai is good not only for travellers who want to spend most of the time game-driving and looking for the most amazing wildlife experiences, but also for people who prefer to have a lazier experience enjoying a stunning view from the verandah of the room or relaxing at the swimming pool.

&Beyond Klein’s Camp

On the footprints of the Great Migration

Serengeti Great Migration

Destination Serengeti! Depending on the season, you might see the Great Migration – one of the most incredible experiences you can try in Tanzania. Every year, the endless Serengeti National Park becomes the scenic frame where more than 2 millions wildebeest, zebra and gazelle migrate looking for greener pasture. If this sounds to you like a good plan, you can ask our safari experts about it; and have a look at our calendar.

From December to March

Big herds of herbivorous concentrate in Ndutu region and Ndutu Lake, part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and continuation of Serengeti South. Ndutu Safari Lodge is a good option for accommodation.

From April to May

It’s rainy season, and despite the weather these months are a good option if you prefer to travel in low tourist season. The migration moves to Serengeti South, Western Corridor and Serengeti central. Many hotels are located here, like Sopa.

From July to October

The right place is Northern Serengeti, along Mara River. You can reach it from Arusha, the starting point of many safaris in the Northern Circuit. Because of the position, it is possible to combine the safari with a visit to Lake Victoria and Mwanza town.

From October to December

The herds of herbivorous enter in Masai Mara Park (Kenya) and then, from the end of October, they come back to Southern Serengeti and Ndutu area, where they can be seen from December.
