You can see for miles and miles from this outcrop, the Kogakuria Kopje. Over a million wildebeest cross these plains in front of Nomad Lamai on their way to dodge the jaws of death in the Mara River, just down the track.
Lamai Serengeti sits tucked amongst the rocks of Kogakuria Kopje with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, only a few miles from where the wildebeest cross the Mara River. For roughly a quarter of the year, between late July and October, this is where you'll find the migration. Right here, on our doorstep. For the rest of the year, it is wild Serengeti with all the resident game of the Masai Mara but without the people.
Each of the rooms is designed to fit into the complex geometry of the kopje and to make the most of this sensational location, its views and its natural space and light. The rooms are a blend of canvas, plaster and natural poles.
Located in the Kogakuria Kopjies in the far north of the park are 12 stone rooms with thatched roofs, all with ensuite bathrooms, flushing toilets and a shower. The camp provides magnificent views of the Mara River Valley and the Lamai Wedge. During the great wildebeest migration, the camp provides outstanding views of the Mara River crossing. Minimum age of 8 years old, however, the camp recommends children to be over 12 as the evenings are fairly formal and there is a lot of big game wondering around.
To see and not be seen on this sacred site was a huge challenge, but Nomad took the view that where nature leads, beauty and style would follow. And so it did.
There are twelve stone and thatch rooms, raised on wooden decking and all en-suite. Three have an adjoining twin room for children, sharing the bathroom. Each en-suite room is open-fronted, with mosquito netting that can be zipped closed, and canvas roll-downs if needed. There are canopied mosquito nets over the beds.
The bathrooms are enclosed by heavy netting, and contain a generous shower with hot and cold running water (provided by a solar system), and flush toilet.
Each room has a comfy day bed and chairs for relaxing on the verandah.
