Activities at Lamai Serengeti

While the great wildebeest migration (occurring between late July and October) is Lamai’s greatest feat, you’ll also spot an abundance of wildlife on game drives and on-foot safaris along the river lines and rocky kopjes of the scenic hinterland. Look out for zebra, topi, gazelles, impala, buffalo, giraffe, lion and leopard - all resident species of the area.
