Overview

Up in the Wogakurya Hills nearby the Mara River sits Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge. It overlooks the Tanzanian wildebeest migration, offering a front-row seat to a world-famous phenomenon whilst ensuring privacy, comfort, and luxury.

Activities here centre on providing a taste of Africa. This is achieved through explorations of the Serengeti wildlife either by open-top 4x4 vehicles or by foot, each led by excellent guides. Baboons, lions, leopards, and hyenas are just some of a wide variety of animals guests can spot in the area. During the evening, guests can enjoy sundowners or bush dining as they sit around a fire watching the sunset and listening to the hive of wildlife activity around the camp. Whether during the migration period between June and October or during other times of the year, guests’ visits will be defined by the private sights of spectacular African plains.

15 luxurious glass-fronted suite tents serve as guest accommodation. They offer fantastic views over the northern Serengeti. Each is fitted with twin or super-king beds, an en-suite bathroom and running hot water, and features a private plunge pool. The accommodation is spacious and luxurious, complete with Swahili-style décor.

The main lodge is made up of three large tents. They house a lounge and bar, both of which lead to outside areas where guests can relax morning or night. A communal swimming pool and sundeck is available for all guests. There is also a separate tent that features the Melengali Spa. Here, guests can really relax with massages and manicures in complete isolation, with only the surrounding nature as company.

Children under the age of 6 are not recommended, but prior approvals can be made. Child rates apply to those between the ages of 6 and 16 years. There is no accommodation exclusively for families.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
