The most game-rich of all: About the Lamai Triangle
Tucked safely away from the mainstream safari route, little has been documented about the Lamai Triangle where the Serengeti plains dip into the Mara River and Kenyan plains beyond. Until a few years ago, there were hardly any permanent camps, let alone a luxury offering in this vastly remote locale in the far northern reaches of the Great Serengeti. Game flourished here and its teeming rivers were only witnessed with much dismay from the disadvantaged and overpopulated Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya. All this changed when the Tanzanian government elected to open the Lamai area to eco-luxury tourism with carefully chosen parcels consigned to a mere handful of responsible safari companies in Africa.
In keeping with the government decree to construct environmentally-sensitive camps that would lend a hand to conservation in the area, Singita were granted concession of a prime location overlooking the Mara River given their outstanding ecological experience and model success in the flagship luxury Singita Grumeti Reserve to the south.
