Fodor's Review

Overlooking the Mara River in Serengeti's northwest, where the park borders Kenya's Masai Mara National Park, this mid-sized tented camp is perfectly poised for watching the river crossing—hundreds of thousands of wildebeest plunge into the crocodile-infested water on their relentless journey north. The unforgettable sightings of this natural wonder of the world (between July and November) often exceed those of next-door Masai Mara. The spacious en-suite tents, with hot water safari showers and flush toilets, colorfully decorated with handwoven rugs and wall hangings, are only a few hundred meters away from the river. The Lamai Wedge, a nearby plain, is home to permanent spring-fed water and attracts thousands of antelope and other plains animals. Because this area of Serengeti is less visited than the west and south but still has an abundance of game and birdlife, you may not see another vehicle—always a huge bonus.
