Serian’s Serengeti Lamai

Serian’s Serengeti Lamai is located in the Lamai wedge, north of the Mara River, in the Serengeti National Park.

Serian’s Serengeti Lamai is an intimate bush camp situated in the beautiful and relatively quiet Lamai wedge portion of the Serengeti, close to the border with Kenya’s Masai Mara. Completely re-built and made permanent in 2023, the tented camp provides an authentic bush ambience whilst also being very comfortable. The ethos of Serian Safaris leans more to the old school side of things, with emphasis placed on great guiding, warm hospitality, great food, having fun in the bush and getting in touch with nature. Every booking has their own private guide and vehicle which means, combined with the location of the camp, guests have an exclusive Serengeti experience, which isn’t always easy to achieve. Serian also offer walking safaris offering the chance to enjoy a more varied Serengeti adventure. The camp lends itself well to extended stays so you can experience a night’s fly-camping, whilst booking the private section of the camp is a fantastic option for families or friends travelling together. The camp is also located close to a crossing point, so is ideal for anyone keen to see a wildebeest river crossing at the right time of year.
