GPS Co-ordinates: S 02º 29.725’ E 34º 45.400’


Lemala Ewanjan is a deluxe seasonal camp with 10 beautiful suite tents set along the western slopes of Makoma Hill within the game-rich Seronera Valley in a secluded part of Central Serengeti. The camp offers breathtaking views of the Serengeti plains and its prolific wildlife, sunsets and sunrises.

The Seronera Valley is renowned for fantastic year-round game viewing due to abundance of residence cats. Between April and June and November through January the area receives the wildebeest migration, turning the area into an exciting wildlife

paradise. All the popular game viewing areas of central, southern or western Serengeti are easily accessible from the camp but after a busy day guests are always delighted to return to the privacy and solitude that the camp offers. 

Guests on game packages can take advantage of Lemala's superb open 4x4 vehicles operated by excellent guides. The vehicles are specially designed for long game drives and each vehicle is fitted with comfortable seats, charging units and a large refrigerator.

The kitchen is happy to organise delicious breakfast and lunch picnics for the day. Balloon safaris can be booked by the camp a day in advance.

Lemala’s high specification tents are some of the most spacious and comfortable seasonal tents in Tanzania. Each tent is fitted with 2 queen size or 1 king size leather beds, warm duvets, flush toilet, large safari shower, running water, wooden cabinets and flooring, 24-hour solar lighting, outside lounger, games table and much more.

The mess tent is beautifully decorated with leather sofas, chandeliers, side cabinets, rugs and chests, and offers separate bar, living and dining areas. In the evening, guests gather around the campfire for sunset cocktails before dining under chandeliers. House alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are included at meal times.

About Serengeti

George Adamson, co-raiser of Elsa the lioness, and husband of "Born Free" author Joy Adamson, visited the Serengeti in the early sixties and describes the experience in "Pride and Joy", his autobiography. At this time he considered it probably the greatest of all game reserves in Africa and one man was mainly responsible - Bernhardt Grzimek, Director of Frankfurt Zoo. The Serengeti had suffered terribly from over-zealous hunting in the 1930's and from large-scale killing of game during the war. Grzimek applied himself to the tensions between Maasai need for grazing and the indigenous wildlife. He and his son carried out a massive survey, using planes to quantify the game, and identifying and logging the plantlife. He used his best-seller "Serengeti Shall Not Die" to raise funds and publicise the exercise. Thanks to the Grzimeks, and to John Owen who established a renowned scientific research establishment there, the Serengeti still has an amazing concentration of wildlife.

The 14,763 square kilometres of the Serengeti are probably most famous for being the southern end of the Great Migration. Every year over 1.5 million animals, mostly wildebeest but also zebra and Thompson's gazelle, follow their instincts and move through the western corridor on their 1000 kilometre journey to the fresh grazing of the Masai Mara. Predators pick off the weak, the laggardly and the young and crocodiles feast as the vast herd crosses the rivers but they continue their trek, as they have done since time immemorial. This is one of the earth's great sights - but it is by no means all the Serengeti has to offer.

The vast, flat central plains, made fertile by the ashes of the none volcanos of the Ngongoro highlands, are places of huge skies, of shimmering heat hazes, yet also of delicate wild flowers blooming after the rains. The savannah, sprinkled with Acacia Tortilis, has majestic termite mounds and rock formations called kopjes which make great vantage points for predators. The lion are abundant, the leopard are plentiful (yet still secretive) and black rhino and cheetah both breed here. There are more than 500 species of bird and, interestingly, 100 sub-species of dung beetle - a sign of a varied animal population! Ndutu, in the south, has small lakes where you may see hippo and water birds. Perhaps one of the best ways to see the Serengeti is a hot air balloon ride when, in the cool of the early morning, you may admire the grandeur, the vastness and the stunning landscape.
