Where is the Lamai Wedge?
The Lamai Wedge is a triangular-shaped region (from an aerial view) located in Northern Serengeti, between the Mara River, The Maasai Mara/Kenya border and the Western edge of Serengeti National Park. See Map.
What makes the Lamai Wedge Special?
This spit of savanna is wholly sequestered from the rest of the park by the Mara River, with just a tiny seasonal bridge providing access. It remains one of the most secluded and uncrowded areas of the Serengeti and offers prime viewing of river crossings during the migration season from roughly July to October.
Staying in Lamai Wedge
Only a few responsible tourism companies are allowed to operate camps within the triangle. Our favourite is Lamai Serengeti.
Wildlife & Activities
With a direct, unfenced northern border on the isolated and wildlife-rich Mara Triangle of Kenya's famed Maasai Mara, there could not be a better place to view animals constantly moving back and forth within this renowned ecosystem. Enjoy morning and afternoon wildlife drives and guided walking safaris, which are not possible in other areas of the park.
The resident wildlife in the park is found year-round. Other typical sightings may include jackals, warthogs and a number of other mammals, birds and reptiles. Exact sightings will depend on rain patterns and wildlife movements.
