Mkombe House Lamai

This self-contained private house for ten, totally designed around families, is charm itself, and set plum in the middle of one of Serengeti’s richest mammal habitats.

Solitary under huge skies and amidst the great grassland plains, it grants complete freedom from other people and schedules. It’s also excitement-central: a lively base for expertly guided forays into the bush: scouting buffalo, elephants, lion, crocodiles – and the famous wildebeest river crossings.

Occupying its own private space and built around the rocks of the Kogakuria Kopje, Mkombe’s House was designed by Joanna Cooke who was also responsible for the award winning Lamai Serengeti. Beautifully styled along the same lines, the House has a fresh, contemporary feel. What we particularly love about it is that while it looks great, it is still somewhere you can completely relax in.

Accommodations at Mkombe House Lamai

The House is fully self-contained with two en-suite double/twin rooms, each with a nearby secure and en-suite children’s room. The House can sleep a total of 4 adults and 6 children comfortably and there is no minimum age. There are cots, high chairs and car-seats provided for the little ones.

Each day, meals are planned with the in-house chef, allowing for lots of flexibility and plenty of choice from a menu loaded with fresh produce, home-baking and delicious flavors. The House incorporates a private dining room and lounge in addition to outside chill-out areas, a plunge pool and larger swimming pool and magnificent views across the Northern Serengeti.

Activities at Mkombe House Lamai

Mkombe House knows from experience that if you’re traveling with young children, the ability to plan your days around their specific needs is all-important for everyone’s enjoyment. That’s why a Mkombe’s House has a private guide, with whom you can discuss the options and decide what you’d like to do each day.

Game drives are the main focus, but it’s also possible to go out on walks (children over 12yrs only), enjoy picnic breakfasts or lunches and sundowners on the rocks. Youngsters often enjoy clambering around on the rocks around the camps in search of lizards, hyrax and other harmless creatures.

And then, of course, there’s the option of spending time in your own home in the bush reading in a shady spot with a great view or having a dip in your private pool.
