Tanzania: Serenegeti NP – Lemala Nanyukie Safari Camp
Lemala Nanyukie is unequivocally the place to stay in the central Serengeti. The lux state-of-the-art camp is brand new (opened on 2018), and is chic and smart to the core. First of all, it’s the location – on top of kopje rock outcrops and hills, offering absolutely surreal panoramas of endless Serengeti grassland plains. You open your windows and there are buffalos, and giraffes, and often lions just outside your open floor veranda and doors (and rock hyraxes at your doorstep). Surreal! The main areas are wide open as well – you can sip gin and tonic and watch the sunset and listen to the lions roar (sometimes too close for comfort). Or have a sunset dink of the very top of the kopje with panoramic views. The tents are the ultimate combination of style, luxury, and classic safari feel – large wooden platforms with massive conical tent material and absolute luxury inside. The interior is awesome – from the private pool decks, to old school bath tubs to inside/outside showers to heavy wood furniture and a lot of windows and open spaces. Top it off with the staff and management that is second to none – and you have the ideal glamping spot in the heart of the world natural jewel of the Serengeti National Park. Just a total wow!!!
