Mkombe's House Lamai

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. 

The whole idea behind Mkombe's House was to create a place where families and groups of friends can enjoy their own space, and explore the Northern Serengeti at their own pace. This is a completely private and self contained house so there is absolutely no need to fit in with anyone else. With it's own private guide, vehicle, chef and house staff days at Mkombe's run to your own timetable. Quite simply, it is a home from home in the Serengeti. 




Having the place to yourself, your own private guide and chef. The mirgation thunders across the Mara River not far from here between July and October, but there is magnificent year round game and big five action. 

Need to Know

Children of all ages are welcome and the House is equipped with cots, car seats, high chairs, children's crockery & cutlery, a snug with a choice of DVDs and a children's pool. Please bear in mind that this is still a wild place and your vigilance at all times is essential.


Mkombe's House works very well in conjunction with our other Northern camps - Kuro Tarangire, Entamanu Ngorongoro and Serengeti Safari Camp, depending on the time of year. Please contact us for more advice on specifically family friendly combinations.
