- Fixed Tented Camp
- High Specification
- Excellent Wildlife Location
- Swimming Pool
Lemala Nanyukie is a new high end fixed fixed tented camp in the productive Central Serengeti area with 15 luxurious tents and a central swimming pool, firepit and dining area.
Activities are focused on game drives in the Serengeti National Park and the location is excellent particularly between May and September, when the dry season brings grazing herds to the central Serengeti accompanied by large big cat populations. The camp itself sits on a grassy savanna dotted with rocky kopjes and shaded by giant acacia trees with expansive views across the open grasslands. Game drives take place in open game drive vehicles that seat 6 guests in 3 rows of 2 seats each row guaranteeing all to have window seats. Game drive vehicles are based on a shared basis but you can book on exclusive use at an additional cost.
Bedrooms feature canvas walls, hardwood decks and contemporary decor. There are 13 standard suites + 1 x 2 bedroomed suite and they are spaced well apart for maximum privacy. Five of the tents can accommodate triples and there is a two-bedroom tent for families. Features include an oversized bed, spacious lounge, and generous bathroom with double vanity, shower and free-standing bathtub. The wooden deck has sunken seating, outdoor shower and a small corner plunge pool with open Savannah views.
The main communal area features a comfortable lounge and bar, outdoor viewing deck, swimming pool, indoor and outdoor dining areas, and campfire area. There is a separate spa tent for massages and treatments.
Lemala Nanyukie can be reached via light aircraft to Serenera Airstrip from which it is a 30 minute drive. Alternatively we can organise a overland safari via the Ngorongoro Crater.
Children of all ages are welcome at Lemala Nanyukie. There is the possibility to add an extra bed to the standard bedrooms to make the configuration 2 x twins + 1 single. For Families of 2 adults and 2 kids the only way to stay in one room is in a bed configuration of 2 x beds + 1 single bed. There is also the option of a child safari camp bed for kids up to 12 that can be added. In the 2 bedroomed suite bed configuration is 1 king + 1 twin with the possibility of an extra bed in each room with a max occupancy of 4 adults or 4 adults + 2 kids.
Hi, just back home now as stayed in London last night. It was fab! We loved it! Amazing all round- Thankyou. Best holiday ever!!!
Accommodation great at both places, guides lovely, staff great. We saw more animals than ever expected: giraffes, lion, elephants, water hog, wilder beast, impala, white rhino, crocodiles, hippos in lake Sybia, monkeys in trees at Tonga.
Beach beautiful, but a bit windy, waves v rough but didn’t deter my boys. We snorkeled which was fab but too rough on day we booked to do ocean experience.
My boys swam in all pools!!!
Weather better than we expected!
Must go and do some laundry, but hope that helps?

We had an amazing holiday.
Everything was fantastic.
The transport wa spot on, great drivers, all on time, vans really comfortable and water supplied, a really nice way to travel, and you also get to hear all about the local area. Both companies were excellent.
Virgin - was a brilliant airline, not sure why I haven't used them before, SO much better than BA.
Rhino ridge was amazing from start to finish. We has a great female safari guide, who we got very fond of. The wildlife is more sparse but as its more challenging to find we enjoyed this, the surrounding are spectacular. Our guide had great knowledge of the birds. walking safari was excellent and highly recommend. The rooms were superb, very comfortable.
Thonga beach lodge staff were brilliant, the whole place was amazing, the range of activities excellent and again out guides excellent. The food was wonderful. Again the bird guiding and general guiding was brilliant. We really enjoyed the cultural side of our visit, seeing the local communities and church etc. My only comment on thonga for future guests would be if they can afford it maybe to go for a lodge with a ocean view, our lodge was great , the childrens was quite cramped and low down with a very damp musty smell - not that they noticed it, but I think if people were expecting luxury they might not get what they wanted... saying that it was fantastic for us. The lodge staff were amazing and went out of their way for us.
Oyster box was a phenomenal hotel and quite a shock to be back in the world after Thonga - but really worth the stay - we loved it, they Kindly gave us a room for the next day as we had a late flight.
The whole experience was brilliant and really well organised- thank you. We ALL loved everything!
we loved having transport rather than driving, it meant we could relax , sleep and find out about the country from the driver.
If we changed anything, I might spend a little less time at the beach and maybe take in another safari region also. We were repeatedly recommended the Phinda private game reserve (andBeyond) so maybe we would have spent a couple of nights there, in addition, local guides and the tour people said it would give good variety to the Rhino ridge.
However we were 100% happy with what we did, we really look forward to our next safari !!!

We arrived home last Sunday morning so we've been back for a week.
Firstly, I would like to say thank you very much for the superb arrangements that you made which went like clockwork from start to finish.
The term part of the trip went really well and we really enjoyed this. Our guide was really helpful and friendly as was our cook/ muleteer.
We loved the first nights accommodation and the Riad Adore in Marrakech was amazing and one of the best hotel accommodation I've stayed in.Alex
Mountain refuges were as expected.
All arrangements by Tourdust were just perfect right up to the moment we were collected by our friendly taxi driver to take us to the airport on our return.
I have passed Tourdust details on to several people both in Marrakech and since our return and I hope that these result in further bookings.
