"Don't judge a book by its cover" we drove to the camp and the last 20 minutes to the camp were scary!!! But all started to change when the team welcomed us in the middle of Bush. By the time we got to sitting area all roads difficulties were forgotten. You don't get the fake smiles and fake luxury you... More

I visited this amazing place in January 2014 for only 3 nights. I was so enthralled that I had to return to stay for 8 nights. The Siana Conservancy where the camp is located is magic. I saw almost every animal on my first evening drive except the lion, rhino and leopard. Yes 4 cheetahs! The staff is truly part... More

Fantastic accommodation not far from the Masai Mara National Reserve. The trip to the Reserve took about 40mins but was packed with animal spotting and seeing the everyday life of the villages on the way. Travelling with husband and 17yo son. Glamping at it's best. Comfortable huge beds, flushing toilet and a shower that did the job when we returned.... More

This also is another property where I know the owners - have crossed that bridge once already. So I am honest up front. But what I can honestly say about it I would still like to share ! The camp is great because it is small, has amazingly large and stylishly equipped tents, and is run by a team that... More

We had been to stay earlier in the year and enjoyed it so much we went back for a second trip when we had family over visiting. Just as good second time.

Seven families stayed at Leleshwa to celebrate a 40th birthday kids and all. It was amazing from the moment we arrived, its not easy to cater to such a diverse group of people but the food was amazing.

It was a joy to host and spend time with the group - certainly a challenge with 16 adults and 14 kids of varying ages - but thrilled that everybody had a wonderful time. We certainly look forward to welcoming you back. Joe & Gillian. More

We visited in early September 2014.
