Lamai Serengeti, Northern Serengeti, TanzaniaThis 12-room lodge is built into a rocky outcropping with expansive views of an acacia-dotted plain.
Some of the region’s best game viewing happens a short drive from the lodge. Sightings of leopards and klipspringers (a species of antelope) are guaranteed.
The pool, set among the rocks a mile above the plain, offers perhaps the most scenic swim
The lodge’s rugs and handwoven bedspreads come from neighboring Kenya. Adding to
the creative, folk-inspired ambience are bar stools that were once tractor seats and mesh lampshades crafted from repurposed fish traps.
From $450. This appeared in the August/September 2013 issue. Image: nomad-tanzania.com
