Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge

Luxury tents in the Serengeti wilderness

Ten Permanent & Impressive Modernist Tents

Strategically scattered for more privacy amongst the boulders and grassy slopes of the Wogakurya Hills, this delightful collection of ten contemporary en-suite tents are a modern, intimate and charming welcome to the northern Serengeti.

Amongst this wild yet gentle landscape your 70-square metre glass-fronted luxury tent, complete with private plunge pool, large contemporary en-suite bathroom (indoor & outdoor showers, tub, twin basins), and king size bed (or twin) are entwined with the authentic canvas exterior, local art, recycled timber and solar power for a pleasing contrast of comfort, conscientiousness and adventure (like all modern safaris should be).

Going one step further, the lodge even has the Melengali Spa and a separate swimming pool amongst the customary bar, dining area, lounge and viewing decks. The food at Kuria Hills is as remarkable as its style and attentive services, in particular when it comes to its freshly baked delicacies distributed at breakfast and high tea.

If you are here for the Great Migration (June-November), then you are well placed for being close to the thrilling Mara River (30 minutes drive), or if you’re here in the quieter season outside of this this, enjoy more privacy and seclusion alongside first class game viewing.

The impact of your stay:

  • Lemala Kuria Hills have spearheaded an innovative anti-plastic pollution initiative in Tanzania. Their approach involves conscious alternatives to plastic and a meticulous recycling and upcycling system. They provide guests with 100% biodegradable and plastic-free lunch boxes. To date, they have removed over 100 tons of plastic from parks in Tanzania and crafted recycled school desks donated to local schools. Water purification plants in their lodges have saved over 18,000 plastic bottles, and glass bottles are recycled into water decanters, jewellery, glassware, and more.
  • The camp demonstrates a commitment to environmental sustainability in its construction. Thirty percent of the steel used in Lemala Lodges is recycled from scrap metal. The lodge operates 100% off the grid, utilising renewable energy and producing zero emissions and fuel usage, except in the rare case of generator backup.
  • The lodges play a crucial role in supporting various community empowerment initiatives, including one addressing sanitary pad poverty prevalent in Maasai communities with limited access to such items. The project has distributed over 3000 reusable pads to young Maasai girls in remote schools, locally produced by the NGO Women’s Group, Upendo Women’s Foundation in Arusha.
