Lemala Ewanjan in Central Serengeti National Park

by Sandy Salle on December 5, 2017

Lemala Ewanjan is a beautiful tented camp set in the Seronera of Central Serengeti, about a 30 minute drive from the Seronera airstrip.  If you’re thinking of going on an African safari vacation, you might want to look at this camp in Tanzania‘s Serengeti National Park.

Lemala Ewanjan is a beautiful tented camp, very comfortable and you feel like you’re right there with nature.  The camp has “floors and doors” as our Amy says.  So you are very safe, but open to the environment.  I love sleeping with the canvas tent open to let the air through the window netting.  Ewanjan is in my mind, a camp that brings you close to nature, but provides a simple but comfortable experience.

The inside of the tents is gorgeously furnished with bright colors.  You either have a tent with a king bed or two queen size beds.

Each tent has it’s own en-suite facilities, a flushing toilet and a bucket shower.  What I love about this is you tell your guide when you’re ready for a shower, and the camp staff goes to a central area to stoke the fire, heating up your water.  The water is then transported to your tent and they fill up the bucket.  When you’re ready, you shout “ready” and voila, you have instant hot water.

The main area has a lounge area and a separate dining area.  In between, is a bar area.  The design is meant to complement the Central Serengeti vast expanses and views – plain, neutral, creams and browns.  Meals are served either in the dining room for dinner, breakfast is served outside and if you’re in camp for lunch normally under the trees.  Or if you’re out on an all day game drive, camp prepares a beautiful picnic lunch for you.

The campfire is the gathering place to enjoy hot tea and coffee in the morning before your game drive, or to gather in the evenings after your days exploring to share stories of what you saw.

The way Lemala Ewanjan is situated, you get the most amazing sunsets.  Whilst we were there, National Parks was doing controlled fire burning, so the sunsets were even more spectacular.

The staff – honestly the staff here go above and beyond to make sure you are having the most amazing experience of your lives.

If you’re looking to go on an African safari vacation, where you get to be in the middle of the Great Migration, or have lions nearby camp, waking up to a view as far as you can see, this is the camp for you.  Lemala Ewanjan stole my heart in Africa – it’s a simple design, with beautiful decor and the most wonderful staff.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area: wildlife, warriors and early man

October 3, 2017

The wildlife authorities, government leaders and tribal chiefs who helped establish Ngorongoro Conservation Area in 1959 surely had no idea that they were creating a template for similar projects in much of Africa and the rest of the world. They were just trying to keep the peace — between the local and global environmentalists trying […]
