About Nomads Lamai Serengeti Camp

About Nomads Lamai Serengeti Camp

The remote and exclusive Lamai Serengeti boasts some of the best views of the Serengeti, built  on the site where the founders of Nomads, Mark and Milly Houldsworth, ran their first safari from. Right in the far north of the Serengeti near the border with Kenya, Lamai Serengeti is set within the Kogakuria kopjes and overlooks the Mara River and Lamai Wedge. From June to October, this is the best place to see the world famous wildebeest migration and really maximises your chances of seeing river crossings.

The twelve rooms are split between two camps, eight rooms at the main camp, then a further four in the private camp. 

Lodge Details


A luxurious, smart and intimate camp with high levels of service and excellent guiding.


Close to the border with Kenya, right in the far north of the Serengeti, the camp overlooks the Lamai Wedge and the Mara River. It is easy to reach from the Kogatende airstrip.

Accommodation & Facilities

At Main Camp there are eight rooms for guests, each hidden amongst the kopjes with either a sunset or sunrise view. They are spacious with sweeping views that are incredible at sunrise and sunset, especially through the wall that is made entirely of mosquito gauze. Floors are wooden, overlaid with thick comfy rugs and the beds are sumptuous and deep, swathed in mosquito netting. You will also find a writing desk and large deck as well as a storage cupboard and mini fridge. One of our favourite features is the small hatch in which the staff with leave your steaming tea in the morning, allowing you to rise at your leisure. Rooms are en-suite.

The shared areas in Main Camp are large and relaxed, all with amazing views of your surroundings and locally sourced fabrics. There is a very comfortable lounge with a cosy fire and a unique bar with airplane seats.

Private Camp must be exclusively booked out for small groups and provides you with your own space. Rooms are similar in design, but the social areas are a bit smaller.

Both camps have their own pool, dining area and lounge and there are family rooms available.


Your meals and drinks (apart from premium drinks and champagne) are included and the food is delicious, prepared on site and you can dine indoors, or outside.


From June/July to October, this is a great location for the Great Migration, but outside of this time you can still see some great game in what is a quiet area. Embark on 4x4 safaris with your excellent guides during the day and, conditions permitting, walking safaris may be available.

Children over 8 years in age are allowed to stay at Lamai Serengeti Camp, there are rooms built with families in mind.
