Serian’s Serengeti Kusini and Lamai Mobile Camps

Serian’s Serengeti Kusini & Lamai camps are basically one seasonal tented camp which moves between Kusini on the western edge of the southern Serengeti plains, and the Lamai Wedge close to the Mara River in the northern Serengeti.

Serian’s Serengeti Kusini & Lamai camps are traditional seasonal tented camps offering an upmarket and old school hosting experience which is getting harder to find these days. The camp is owned by safari guide Alex Walker, and either Alex himself or one of his management team are always in camp to host guests. Although technically quite mobile and offering a close to nature bush experience, the camp is very comfortable and there is an air of quiet quality about everything from the details of the accommodation to the food and service. The guiding is always good and it is great that each set of clients automatically get their own private vehicle and guide for flexible activities. The location of the camp at Kusini allows exploration of the southern short grass plains, without staying in the very busy Ndutu region. At Lamai, on the northern bank of the Mara River, it allows a little extra exclusivity as most camps in this area are located to the south of the river.
