August 2013: Northern Serengeti- Lamai: An excellent safari destination
Besides the spectacular crossings of the wildebeest over the Mara river (see my previous blogpost), Northern Serengeti - Kotagenda and Lamai wedge have so much more to offer. The vegetation here is very similar to the Masai Mara. You have the plains and the kopjes only far less people than in Kenya.
The area is a predator's heaven. We saw several lions and cheetahs. Only the leopards were hiding during our five night stay. The most spectacular lion sighting was the lion mother with her three week old cubs.
The food in the Olakari Lamai camp was the best of our entire trip to Tanzania. The tents were wonderful and the bucket shower was always warm when we needed it. Messenga our guide was great and Richard the camp manager a fantastic host.
