Located in the rocky outcrop that forms the top of the Wogakurya Hills, in the very north of the Serengeti, the camp is afforded spectacular views out across the surrounding grassland plains that run north to the Lamai wedge and the Masai Mara in Kenya. At around a 30 minute drive to the Mara River crossing points, this is a stunning location with interesting rock formations and very good game.
Each of the amply sized rooms is well spaced from the other, spreading on either side out from the main dining and lounge area. With so few rooms, it makes for a very pretty and peaceful configuration. The swimming pool, it is worth noting, is set, very much, out on its own, up the hill, but it too has great views out across the plains.
The rooms are a break with the normal Lemala fare and are huge, spacious and eclectically designed affairs. To say that they are luxurious is an understatement as they have a small reclining area inside and outside, along with small plunge pool and, of course, the views.
This northern area of the Serengeti has resident game year round but really comes into its own from around the start of July until the end of November, when the migration herds are in the region. Due to the nature of the main rains, many of the driving routes are washed away each season and, as such, it gives the drivers license to head where they like (to a certain extent) which means that you are afforded the possibility of both walking and driving off road in the region.
