Lemala Kuria Hills tented camp is all about luxury and attention to detail and its setting in the northern Serengeti is also where its name hails from, as the Kuria tribe originate from the surrounding Wogukuria Hills. The camp’s 10 beautifully furnished tents are set beneath shady trees and surrounded by massive boulders. Each tent features an outdoor deck, a private plunge pool, separate lounge and bedroom areas and an immaculate bathroom, complete with a bathtub with a view, as well as in- and outdoor showers. The spacious tents are 70m2 and are fitted with ceiling fans to ensure extra comfort.
The main camp includes an opulent lounge area, furnished with leather couches, elegant coffee tables, chandeliers and local African art. The adjoining bar area offers unparalleled view of the hills. Meal times, which can be enjoyed in private or shared dining areas, take the form of plated meals for lunch and dinner, including a choice of starters, mains and desserts. Full English and continental breakfasts are served, and High Tea is available in the afternoons. The kitchen staff aim to impress and a wide range of delectable meals is offered, including teppanyaki, wood-fired pizzas and barbeques.
Boasting an African treatment centre, Lemala Kuria Hills provide guests with a range of massages, manicures, pedicures or aroma treatments. There’s also a gift shop and a large swimming pool for those wanting to cool off in the afternoons. Game drives and game walks can be arranged to suit individual needs and preferences, and all guest tents are fitted with a telephone intercom system which is connected to the main tent.
Lemala Kuria Hills is the epitome of eco-chic. The camp runs entirely on solar and wind power and is therefore classified as carbon neutral. In addition, the tents were built with the environment in mind, using recycled steel and glass and timber from sustainable sources. While the camp is wonderfully secluded and hidden from the outside world, it is located just a 20-minute drive away from Kogatende airstrip. Fly-in package rates include transfers to and from the airstrip.
