Lemala Camps and Lodges

Authentic Camps and Lodges


Lemala presents a collection of authentic and classic safari tented camps and lodges in the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. These make up a significant part of the famed Northern Circuit, a naturally splendid region of Tanzania and one of the most celebrated safari areas in Africa where the sheer concentration of wildlife is simply phenomenal.

Lemala’s camps and lodges are superbly sited discreetly away from the crowds in beautiful wildernesses. Thanks to careful positioning with access to prime wildlife areas, Lemala’s guests can enjoy fantastic game viewing at any time of year. We also have mobile camps that are erected specifically to witness the different stages of the wildebeest migration, and walking safaris that offer the opportunity to explore remote corners of the Northern Serengeti.

With large and well-furnished tents and suites, comfortable lounges and fine food and wine, Lemala offers a superior level of style in intimate isolation, whilst retaining a connection and respect to the natural environment. Lemala is committed to providing exceptional quality guest service and a highly memorable safari experience in custom-built vehicles with well-trained guides. 


Luxury Living in Tanzania


Lemala Kili Villas are located on a private wildlife estate and offer a relaxing start or end to a safari in Tanzania. They are perfect for short or long stay and can be taken on exclusive basis if traveling with friends and family. Located just outside Arusha, which is the gateway to some of Tanzania’s best national parks; Kili Villas also boast access to Tanzania’s only championship golf course.  Each villa has four en suite bedrooms, open fireplaces, complimentary Wi-Fi and private chefs to produce everything from delicious breakfasts  to refreshing  lunches, afternoon  teas and sundowner  cocktails to be enjoyed around the swimming  pool.    Dinners on the veranda are delightful using only the freshest  of produce.   Whether  for a short  stay or extended,  there  is plenty  to do ranging  from  early  morning  horse  rides,  to a round  of golf on the 18 hole  champion golf course,  relax at the Polo Club, take a tour of a fragrant coffee plantation in Arusha or work up a sweat hiking and canoeing around Kilimanjaro and Lake Duluti.

The Villas are located only 45 minutes from Arusha and Kilimanjaro International Airport and within 15 minutes from Arusha national park.   For flights to Northern Tanzania, the estate has a private airstrip just 10 mins away.

The staff in each villa offers a personal service to ensure you have a truly relaxed holiday.   The Villa chef provides delightfully fresh and wholesome meals and we can cater to dietary requirements if notified in advance.

Each of our 4 Villas are distinctively decorated to showcase the best of local African design and craftsmanship combined with colonial style furniture.  Built around a central private courtyard, each villa boasts a reception, living and dining room with the ground floor hosting 2 or 3 suites with bush or pool views and additional guest bathroom.   2 of the villas have a second floor with views of the pool or surrounding bush and both Mt Meru and Kilimanjaro.   All suites encompass a private terrace.

Our personal approach allows us to provide a tailor made service to suite each and everyone of our guests.  Guests, after breakfast can spend the day sunbathing by the pool or play a round of golf on Tanzania’s only championship course. A delectable lunch is available outside followed by a cocktail under the shaded patio, which overlooks the surrounding bush and wildlife.  Afternoon tea will be served on the patio or you could  be tempted outside again with views of both Meru and Kilimanjaro from the verandah and later gaze at the stars from your open-air fireplace.   Dinner is ready when you are and afterwards the fire beckons; a nightcap to wrap up your day at Lemala Kili Villa before retiring to your room ready to dream of Africa with the unique night sounds to send you on your way to dreamland.


Extraordinary. Unique. Unforgettable


Nestled in luxuriant rainforest on its own private island, mid-stream in the mighty Nile, Wildwaters Lodge is breathtaking.  Thick riverine forest naturally covers the island and each of the ten timber-floor rooms is nestled amidst the forest with private, breathtaking views over the River Nile and its rapids.  The expansive, canvas walled, traditionally thatched, rooms each boast private decks with elegant free-standing baths and wash basins carved from the local pink granite.  Softly lit with hand-made furniture, you can relax in comfort on this island paradise listening to the thunder of the Nile rapids, and the calls of the many species of bird who call the island home.


Experience the thrill


Adrift is Uganda’s favourite adventure company offering whitewater rafting & bungee jumping on the Victoria Nile close to its source near Bujagali Falls in Jinja.    Adrift has an unparalleled safety record that is both unrivaled and admired.  We thank over 58,000 customers who have safely rafted the Nile with us including Prince William, Ginger Spice, Mikka Hakkanen, Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman.  Leading the way, Adrift made the first-ever descent of the river Nile in Uganda in 1996 (10 years after first scouting the river) and hit world headlines before introducing commercial whitewater rafting to the country. The company has the most professional and experienced team on the continent with over 30 years of worldwide rafting and adventure experience
