This luxurious lodge sits in prime mammal spotting territory in the northern Serengeti, and was designed by Joanna Cooke, who was also behind the award winning Lamai Serengeti.
Set within the Kogakuria Kopjes, with views over the Mara Valley and Lamai Wedge, Mkombe's House is a luxurious private lodge option in Tanzania, which can sleep up to ten guests.
Mkombe's House has two main bedrooms, which are open-fronted to take in the Serengeti views. There are a further two children's bedrooms, which can sleep up to six little ones, and all rooms are ensuite, with running water and flush loos. Rooms are spacious and light, with a pale colour palette, incorporating rustic thatching and timber structures with more contemporary interior furnishings.
Mkombe has its own dining room, where guests can enjoy meals prepared by the in-house chef. Meals are planned daily which allows for flexibility, using plenty of fresh produce, and home-baking. A lounge, outdoor chill-out areas, plunge pool and larger swimming pool provide plenty of space for guests relaxation between activities. Game drives are the main focus here, and a private guide is on hand to co-ordinate the day's activities which can also include seasonal guided walks, bush picnics and sundowners.
