Situated within the world-famous Serengeti National Park, Singita Mara Tented Camp Lamai Tanzania benefits a location with one of the highest year-round concentrations of wildlife on the planet. With a prime situation on a U-bend in the river, Singita Mara Tented Camp Lamai Tanzania is one of the finest up close and personal game viewing areas in East Africa. The atmosphere is luxurious and generous, and the entire camp is built around eco-friendly principles with a large helping of high luxury thrown into the mix.

Look & Feel

As an ‘off the grid’ lodge, Singita Mara Tented Camp Lamai Tanzania is entirely run by solar power for an unusually liberating experience. Every aspect of the design concept has been thoughtfully appointed, with tents softened and layered to offer guests a gentle retreat from the ‘harsh carnage’ of the animal world. The bohemian design detail is permeated with an East African theme, creating a sense of excitement through the use of Maasai primary colours, beadworks and patterns. Young African contemporary designers created the elegant woven chairs, lamps and stools, evoking a tribal feel that is entirely harmonious with the surrounding bush. The retro furnishings are shaped like bones and twigs, enhancing the rightful prominence of the natural world. The use of canvas, stone, raw leather and natural fabrics enhance the unbroken indoor-outdoor flow where guests have only the primeval landscapes and wild animals for company.

“The entire mood and tone at Singita Mara Riva is one of freedom.”


The entire mood and tone at Singita Mara Tented Camp Lamai Tanzania is one of freedom, and with just one other camp in the vicinity it feels as if it the parkland is all your own. The camp’s eco-awareness reveals a genuine respect for the magnificence of the surroundings with every aspect of the camp designed to help guests make the most of their setting. Private viewing decks in every room are the ideal spot for a yoga class overlooking the river, or to enjoy a meal while watching the wildlife amble past. The food is designed to connect with the heart and soul of the camp, with fresh, dynamic cuisine and local specialties. Rooms even include private, open-air bathtubs where you can breathe in the smells of Africa. The camp welcomes abundant animals sightings including big cats and elephants, while the annual wildebeest migration is a once in a lifetime experience where you can watch hundreds of thousands of animals heading over the river in search of pastures new.


The Maasai people are nomadic pastoralist; this type of farming is common in areas with low rainfall and sees the farmers herd livestock to find fresh pastures for grazing and water sources. Their wildebeests are therefore considered the ‘wealth’ of the Maasai and, as such, are offered great respect.
