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.
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.
