Our experience at this wonderful camp has to identify the most impactful part of our stay - the staff!! Each person at the camp was dedicated to meeting our needs whether on the game drive with a highly professional driver guide or during a meal providing a varied and delightful selection. The dining/common area, with the lovely scenery & large... More

Our recent stay at LeWa Safari Camp was enjoyable. The guides and the trips to the bush were the best part of the experience. They were great and went out of their way to ensure that we got the most our of our safari. Sightings were good. Weather didn't cooperate, and one downpour created a bit of a flood, even... More

Our stay at lewa house was perfect. We were greeted at the air strip by our wonderful guide Joseph. On arrival we were welcomed into our new home, not just a place to stay. From the food to the accommodations, we felt like we were visiting family. We were introduced to local food,customs and the animals with such genuine love,... More

We had a terrific time during our stay. Everything was top notch. The hosts, Tam & Sacha, went out of their way to be helpful & ensure that things went well for us. When we mentioned that we were interested in Kenyan carpets, for example, Tam worked it out with our guide that we could visit a nearby workroom &... More

We spent one night with my family (3 children of 5y, 3y and 7months) and my parents in june 2014. We really loved the lodge, the tents are confortable, clean, spacious and in a nice position. We were very well welcomed and after a good lunch (food is really a good point!) and a short rest we went for our... More

This place was wonderful! From the staff, to the food, accommodations to the tour guides. My sister and I had what we called a glam tent for our stay with warm hot water bottles put in our bed every night while we were at dinner. We had coffee, hot chocolate and breakfast cookies delivered to our tent every morning promptly... More

Lewa was the first stop on our safair in Kenya and Tanzania. It exceeded our expectations, and we loved it. We had our children (eleven and thirteen), and the staff was great with families. The new managers, Sacha and Tamlyn, had their own little daughter at the camp. Precious. Anyway, they made us so comfortable - attending to every need.... More

Lewa is certainly less well known that the Masai Mar but it you want a safari where you can truly feel alone in the wild with just wild animals sharing your space this is the place to be.
