- Spectacular views of wildlife
- Great game drives
- Hot air balloon ride
- High-quality food
Set in the vast, open expanse of the Seronera Valley in Central Serengeti, Northern Tanzania, are 12 deluxe-tented suites offering a luxury experience in a rustic camp setting.
With the Central Serengeti well-known for the Great Migration, the Lemala Ewanjan Tented Camp makes the most of the spectacular wildlife and scenery, offering uninterrupted views across the savannah as wildebeest roam in the distance. In the evening, at sunset, guests gather around a campfire for drinks and a chat, before dining under chandeliers in the lounge tent or the starry sky.
The guest tents are all en suite, with queen-sized beds, hot bucket showers, a flush toilet, 24-hour solar lamps and outside loungers. The tents are large and elegantly decorated, with rugs, duvets and cushions. Internet access is available in the main area only, where there is also a centralised bar. Highly-rated restaurant-quality meals are prepared on site from food trucked in weekly.
This place offers great game drives in their open four-by-four vehicles, fitted out with charging units and a large refrigerator. The area is excellent for sightings of great cats. Masai tribesmen patrolling the camp at night keep guests safe. Another option is to take a hot air balloon ride, surveying the panorama of the Serengeti from above.
Children of six years and up are welcome, although younger children may be accepted on request. Each of the two family tents houses two queen-sized beds, allowing plenty of space for two adults and a child. A single bed can also be squeezed in for a second child. The camp’s main activities are generally limited to daytime safaris. However, the Lemala Cubs Programme provides a range of educational activities to keep children entertained, from learning how to use a bow and arrow, to tracking around camp with resident guides, to sitting around the camp fire roasting marshmallows and listening to African fables.
Lemala Ewanjan Tented Camp promises comfortable, moderately-priced accommodation and excellent wildlife sightings in a stunning Central Serengeti location.
The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

The Namibia trip was fantastic!
Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).
As for specifics:
This place was the best!
Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.
The only (slight) disappointment.
Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.
Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.
Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
A nice stopping point on the drive.
An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
The staff was on par with Okonjima.
2 days were perfect.
Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
They represent Tourdust well!
Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
