An Eco Lodge at the entrance of  Nyerere National Park (the Selous)  

Ideally located a few kilometers away from the matambwe gate of the Nyerere National park (formerly Selous Game Reserve) and the Kisaki village, Lemara Eco Camp is the ideal travel destination for the conscious traveller. 







"We founded Lemara to break the traditional safari circuit in Tanzania. We dreamed of a place where travelers could take the time to meet us, exchange and discover the beauty of our nature, from the infinitely large to the infinitely small. "

What travelers say



"We spent three nights at Lemara Eco Camp and regret not staying longer. From the moment of our arrival, Leepa made us feel as if we were at home. This stay was unlike any other we’ve experienced in Tanzania - or around the world. It was an immersive, intimate experience, where we were more than tourists passing through another lodge. Each day we looked forward to gathering around the table to share meals, cultural conversations, and plenty of jokes with Leepa and the team. You’re truely made to feel like long-time friends catching up."



"We also loved the opportunity to travel to and from Lemara on the legendary Tazara, which is a unique (and ecological) experience. In general, we were impressed by Leepa's local initiative and his project to promote ecological, respectful and sustainable tourism in Tanzania."

"An amazing day with Leepa who was our Masai guide, one of the most beautiful encounters I have had during this trip. He told us about his journey and shared with us his dream, to share his culture with the rest of the world and to make other people's dreams come true and then provide care to those who need it most."

Ethical Safari Experiences

An ethical safari is not about hunting wild animals. It is a travel experience that emphasizes respect for nature, animal welfare and support for local communities. We offer a wide range of activities to help you explore the wilderness and get in touch with the inhabitants of the Kisaki village and their culture. 


Accompagnied by your guide, explore the vast wilderness of the Nyerere National Park in a 4x4 vehicle with a pop-up roof in search for beautiful animal sighting.
