After a two-day stay at the Lemala Ndutu camp, we traveled to the Seronera, inside the Serengeti National Park We spent two-nights at the Lemala Ewanjan.
I think this camp is a bit newer that the
There are seven tents, very well-appointed, and similar to the Ndutu camp.
Although the type of tents and furniture used are identical, the experience was vastly different.
The furnishings looked nicer, the bed linens looked bright, and the towels were plush and without any tears or holes.
The ensuite bathroom offers a safari shower, a dressing area, and flush toilet.
To take a shower, one must notify one’s tent attendant, and he will boil the water, bring it to the outside of the tent, mix it with cold water, and pour into a 40-liter bag which is hoisted up where it is poured into an overhead tank, which allows you take a proper shower.
But beware… you must conserve it or be left without any water in a matter of two minutes!
Meals are offered in a large mess tent, and there is a large communal table. Dinner is served at once, and the meal is shared with other guests.
The menu is fixed, and in fact the menu seems to be the same at all camps.
The food was quite tasty, the portions were plentiful. Drinks (alcoholic and soft) are included in the price, and the wine selection is South African, brands used are very nice.
Regarding the lunch box, we specified to the Manager the type of food to place in our picnic box, and he delivered. We were very happy, but I suspect without any suggestions, we would have had the same pititful experience as the Ndutu camp.
On the other side of the mess tent, there is a nice bar, and a living area with nice leather furniture, area rugs, decorative pillows on the sofas, books, etc. It’s very nice.
A Masaai warrior escorts guests to their tents in the evenings, since this is an open camp.
A boma fire is lit up at night for sundowners, great canapes, and unlimited drinks are offered.
This camp is set along the game-rich Seronera Valley. The location is truly spectacular, and we could see animals meandering nearby.
It was here, less than a kilometer away from the camp that we saw the great Wildebeest migration.
It was amazing! We knew when they moved in, in the middle of the night because we could hear the incessant barking of zebras and honking of the wildebeest... very exciting.
The views of the Serengeti migration, the golden grasslands and the glorious sunsets will be unforgettable! This camp deservesf 5-stars!
