Lemala Nanyukie can be found in the Eastern Serengeti National Park. Nanyukie means 'endless plains' in the Maasai language, and the surrounding area of the Serengeti does indeed offer plains as far as the eye can see. The camp has been built on a grassy savanna dotted with rocky kopjes and shaded by ancient giant acacia trees. With Lemala's highly-knowledgeable and experienced guides you can easily experience the thrilling wildlife spectacle of the annual wildebeest migration, and out of season also expect high-density game-viewing.
Lemala Nanyukie is a completely solar-powered camp which offers 15 luxurious guest tents, one of which is a 2-bed roomed suite, perfect for families. You can expect an oversized bed, a lounge area, and a generous bathroom with shower, free-standing bathtub and double vanity. Enjoy a dip in your own private pool from the comfort of your deck or laze on the outside lounge beds enjoying a cocktail as the sun sets. The main area of the camp has a comfortable lounge and fully-stocked bar, outdoor and indoor dining areas and a viewing deck leading to the swimming pool, a great spot for enjoying the amazing Serengeti sunsets and moonrises. The swimming pool allows you to cool off in the hot afternoons and enjoy cold drinks served whilst you enjoy the vistas. There is also a separate spa tent offering secluded relaxation amongst the trees.
