SINGITA MARA RIVER TENTED CAMP

LAMAI TRIANGLE. SERENGETI MARA ECOSYSTEM, TANZANIA
How can I lose faith in the justice of life, when the
dreams of those who sleep upon feathers are not
more beautiful than the dreams of those
who sleep upon the earth?

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.

Africa’s most dramatic Big Cat Safari.

Hot on the trail of the migration are the Serengeti’s most formidable predators: large prides of Black-maned Lion, Cheetah who flourish in this perfect sprinting habitat, packs of powerful hyena and the solitary leopards of the shadowy acacia groves. Their interactive hunting patterns and witnessing young cubs learning to stalk for the first time make the gathered herds and the predators who seek them one of the Greatest Wildlife Experiences on Earth, quite unlike any place else in Africa.

The Great Migration & River Crossing

By the late East African winter, herds a million-strong amass along the swollen Mara River: the final barrier to cross over to the rain-sweetened plains of Masai Mara. Seeking safe shallows to journey across the river the bulk of the herd scouts waters boiling with slashing crocodile and hippo. This is the climatic site of the Lamai Triangle - bordered amid two nations, the crossroads for the great migration to leap from the vast Serengeti savannah on to the lush plains of Masai Mara in Kenya.

What’s special about the Lamai Triangle?

The only area in the Serengeti to remain truly game-rich year-round, The Lamai Triangle rests on the Kenya-Tanzania border and is home to ever-present widlife. Plains game such as zebra, lion, leopard, buffalo and elephant are spotted all year in the rocky kopjes and riverine forest. The arrival of the great migration changes the dynamics of this area - both on the plains and in the croc-infested rivers - presenting even more of a spectacle with the dry season.
