- 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.
We had a wonderful time! Our transfers (besides a bit of a wait when we arrived) were smooth. The gentleman that drove us to and from the airport also drove us to our hike and he was very nice and helpful, clean car and very accommodating.
Our tour guide on the first day, Mandy, was charming and insightful. It was a slow day in the markets but we appreciated the space and gave us a chance to hear all about the Souks. The gentlemen who was with her was a wealth of knowledge and both did a very nice job!
Our hike was awesome and our guide was great- he even took us to a cool waterfall and took great care of us; lunch in the mountains was delicious!
The hotel was so lovely and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The food was great and the rooms very comfortable!
I did a good amount of damage in the market (often accused of being Berber;) and truly hope to be back next Spring... maybe a girls trip or perhaps I’ll bring my kiddos!
Thank you for organizing such a nice getaway for my husband and I; we will confidently recommend Tourdust to our friends!!

We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.
Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.
Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.
Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!
One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.
Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

Thanks for all your help in making the arrangements, everything went so smoothly from landing in Jo’burg to departing a week later.
We all had a fantastic time, Kirsty (our youngest) was able to go on all the game drives and we were very well looked after both on the drives and back at the lodge. The food was great, staff were all very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them (e.g. providing hot milk for Kirsty at bedtime). The kids all enjoyed the rock pool during the day and we all loved the game drives.
We were lucky enough to see all the big 5, with the additions of Cheetah & Wild Dogs. I think it was the second to last day before we managed to see some Hippo (and finally I’ve been able to take some photos of them - I have only ever seen them at night before). We had the adventure of being caught up with some Lionesses stalking a herd of Zebra (one of the younger Lionesses went a bit early & scattered the herd).
We’re certainly aiming to go on safari again although it will be a while before we save enough to go again (maybe the kids will be taking us next time!)
