- 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.
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!)
