I was not keen on taking an African safari with my fiancee as it was never really on my bucket list. However, as we arrived to camp after a long drive and were greeted with chilled orange juice and cold face towels to cool down I immediately realized that we may be in for a real treat! The camp was... More

Had another great trip to Leleshwa. From sunset cocktails to spectacular tents to first-class accommodations, this is the way to experience the Masai Mara at its best. The food was great and having a hot shower after a long day in the Mara (despite being in a tented camp) makes this hard to call "camping". Brought several work colleagues here... More

The tents are beautiful, the grounds captivating, the food 5 star. David was my personal guide with Sopia as my spotter, yep I was blessed to see the big... More

Three nights and four days at Leleshwacamp ... Named after a tree in the Mara bush... There were leleshwa leaves left at our bedside, on our linens, as a greeting, and a lovely gift on our arrival. We were met at the airstrip by two Maasai warriors, Julian and Rinka, who drove us to the camp, all the while explaining... More

I stayed in Leleshwa Camp in December with my family of five - two adults and three kids aged 11(boy), 7 and 3.5 (girls). We had a fantastic holiday!! It was exactly what we were hoping for and more. We wanted a holiday in the Mara which was engaging for the kids beyond the game drive and pool experience. From... More

Just returned back from the family holiday of a lifetime in Kenya. To celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary we pushed the boat out and took our 2 children (7,5) to Kenya for half term. Following a friends recommendation, we booked the trip through Natural Habitat Safaris - planning a few days on Safari and then 5 days at Watamu on... More

I travelled to Leleshwa Camp as part of a holiday with my sister and her two teenage children who were in Kenya for the first time. This Mara trip came at the end of the holiday and we loved it! Apart from getting lost on the way (make sure you get directions from staff) - it was fantastic in every... More

We spent here just one night. I wish we could stay more. Managers, Janine and Mark, are so nice and careful that you feel like at home. Food and tents are exellent. In the night you can hear lots of animals and even when we walked back to the tent after dinner we heard a hyena. Amazing! We had a... More

I recently went to Leleshwa as part of my honeymoon and I can not rate the experience highly enough. We far preferred the exclusivity of the reserve to the already excellent Mara. There was a real element of romance in the 'old africa' feel of the place and the staff/guides knew the perfect balance between being helpful and friendly and... More
