We spent 5 nights at Sand River Camp. Why was it so special? Besides the generous size of the tent with its comfortable 4 poster bed & copper bath, a brilliant location and wonderful food it was definitely the staff who made this place something very special & perfect for our family holiday. Everyone was brilliant but I do have... More

We have stayed in 5-Star properties around the world, and nothing can compare to the Sand River Camp. They could give lessons to the Ritz in Paris. The gentleman who runs refers to himself as "an African with a British passport." He knows the land, the game and the people, and ensures you enjoy each element beyond any expectation. The... More

We started our honeymoon and safari across Kenya with three nights at Sand River in early December, and we wished we had stayed longer. We were well and truly spoilt by the highly attentive, but not intrusive, staff from the moment we arrived. The tented suites are wonderfully designed with high quality fixtures and luxurious bathrooms. The outside shower is... More

I always feel spoiled while on safari and Sand River did not disappoint. From, "Famous" Amos picking us up at Keekorok airport, with a cold towel and glass of juice, to my personal wake up call with coffee, this property is first class. The tents are very comfortable, great beds and pillows. Internet is available in the dining area. Achmed,... More

Before booking our stay at Sand River, I read all of the reviews on Trip Advisor and I thought they all sounded far too good to be true. Having returned from a four day stay there with my family in October, I can definitely confirm they were all true! This place is simply spectacular - from the breathtaking location/setting of...

The Elewana Sand River camp is a spectacular place in every way. Luxurious setting, incredible wildlife viewing and top class staff combine to make this one of the best safari lodges in Kenya - if not all of Africa. From the moment we met the manager Tim and our excellent guide Daniel at the nearby Keekorok airport, we were exceptionally... More

We stayed at Sand River for 4 days in August for the beginning of our honeymoon. We were treated extremely well from the moment we arrived at the landing strip in the Mara, greeted by our wonderful driver Amos. Tim the manager greeted us at the entrance and made us feel at home instantly. The rooms are stylish, comfortable and... More

What can I say? Five star luxury in a tent , top class food and the nicest staff ever. The safari trips every day were full of the most amazing animals with all the information given in a very easy to understand way by our driver Newton. We were looked after by John who kept us fed and watered by... More

When you arrive airport the staff Newton welcomed me with the cold tower, small bite from the chef. The room is beautiful and cozy. The service is excellent. They have 24/7 security who can spot the buffalo from far in the night, impressive! The food is really good. I can hear all animals before i went to sleep which makes... More
