Awesome people and indulgent luxury in the Serengeti!
On the last four nights of our custom safari in Tanzania, we stayed at Lemala Kuria Hills. What a treat! The location perched on a hill between giant boulders is stunning. The "tents" are spacious, beautiful and luxurious. We loved the deck with plunge pool where we could sit after safari and still see animals. The outdoor shower (there is an indoor one as well) was always a refreshing treat. The bar, dining room and deck are gorgeous, and the food was great. But most of all, it was the people that made our stay so spectacular. The knowledge and skill of our guide, Steven James, made it possible for us to see two wildebeest river crossings, a herd of elephants also crossing the Mara River, a leopard that had a kill in a tree, a pride of lions, many hippos, zebras, giraffes, crocodiles and more. I had challenged him to find us a black rhino (there are so few, and there had not been a sighting in two weeks)...and he did! We had so many great laughs and so much fun with Steven. We also had great conversations with Leanne, a CEO with Lemala. Nelson, a camp manager, went above and beyond to get us out of a pickle when we forgot our passports. On our last night, he had three comfy chairs waiting for us on the deck so we could watch the sunset. And he arranged for a special cake that the whole staff delivered to our table while singing a traditional song and dancing. It was so sweet and touching! And we always loved seeing the young lady at the reception desk because her contagious laugh would just make your day. I highly recommend treating yourself to a stay at this beautiful place.
Perfection at the Serengeti
This place was magical, great service and outstanding location. We visited Kuria for our second stop and we were lucky to meet LeAnn the CEO of Lemala. This place has a great location, food and comfort. It was clean, comfortable and they took care of every detail. The staff prepared special surprise drinks for the kids and food was exquisite, Loved the portions. Every night they sat you in a different place and made your stay special. Animals abound, Lions, Buffalo, not to mention Hyenas and Zebras walking around the camp. The guide Hassan and host Catherine made the stay extra special. I highly recommend this lodge and I would stay again. Thanks Leann from Luis, Maria,Luna and Matias.
The best possible installations with all the luxury. You could even see the animals from the room which had a pool in the deck. The entire personnel was amazing and made us feel extremely special through the entire trip. Food and drinks alternatives were also delicious and changed every day. Everything was perfect through our stay.
fantastic camp in the Northern Serengeti
This was our 3rd trip to Africa and second to the Serengeti and this location was the best we have stayed at in our travels. Highly recommend this location. Easy access to the Mara River, great game viewing, amazing staff and excellent food. You could not ask for a better experience.
An amazing place to stay
Lemala Kuria Hills was an amazing place to stay. The service was incredible. When we arrived, the manager, Nelson, noticed that my Grandma was with us and immediately got to work on switching us to rooms closer to the main lounge and dining area so my Grandma did not have to walk as much. The food was incredible at every meal. The staff enthusiastically sang, danced, and gave me a nice cake for my graduation - it made my experience so special. Rooms were beautiful and the most amazing sunset could be seen over our veranda. The location was perfect for seeing the migration. Definitely a great place to stay and relax in the Serengeti.
