A scenic region characterized by grassy rolling hills, open woodland and tree-lined watercourses, it is a habitat that attracts wildlife throughout the year. Lemala Kuria Hills is in close proximity to the Mara River on the Serengeti’s border with Kenya’s Maasai Mara, so is also within the main corridor of the world-famous wildebeest migration between July and October.

Activities & features:
Join us on an extraordinary adventure. Float in a hot air balloon over the famous Serengeti National Park with its enchanting scenery and amazing wildlife. This may be the most beautiful area in the world for a balloon flight. There are no power lines, fences and few roads. Our capacity is limited making this experience a special and exclusive one. Each and every balloon flight is different and therefore an adventure – even for us. We aim to provide the high point of your safari and an experience that you will remember always.
This is an experience that is a way of life in Africa. Its an exceptional treat and one not to be missed. Imagine your guests have just finished an inspiring game drive and your guests come across in the middle of the plains a private sundowner set up with drinks and snacks, chairs and cushions and waiters on hand to serve your guests their favorite tipple against the beautiful backdrop of the Africa as we know it, as the sun goes down.
Lemala Cubs Kids activities
Tanzania has great appeal for families. Seeing animals is very exciting for children, and nothing can prepare a parent for the delight of watching their child’s reaction when they catch sight of a lion, giraffe or elephant for the very first time. But small kids can get bored and restless on long drives or around camp if they are not entertained. Lemala Cubs offers our special guests under the age of 12 a wide range of wonderful opportunities to experience and enjoy the magic of the Africa bush. These activities are fun, educational and interesting, show future generations the need for conservation of Africa’s wildlife, and keep kids well entertained while mum and dad relax.
Some of our Lemala Cubs activities may include identifying animals and birds, learning how to throw (blunt) spears and use bows and arrows like the Maasai, being taught tracking and spoor identification techniques by our guides, walking with the Maasai to hear stories about their culture and way of life in the bush, and even joining the chefs in the kitchen to prepare meals or roasting marshmallows over the campfire before bed
You can enjoy game drives from here on shared or on exclusive use basis. Our vehicles have open sided windows, charging facilities and a fridge with cold drinks. Our vehicles are driven by excellent guides who will ensure you see the best of what Serengeti has to offer
Bush Dining - Experience that Out of Africa feeling
No safari is complete without experiencing a traditional bush dinner. Relax under the natural canopy of an acacia tree, while your personal butler serves up a feast. Nothing is quite so essentially safari as this. White linen, fine bone china and crystal glassware create a real Out of Africa experience.
