Apologies for the tardiness of this review. We stayed for three nights in September 2014. It happened that the regular managers were on vacation and the assistant manager Lucy was the only one on duty. What a delight Lucy was. As a photographer with many batteries to charge, a laptop to power for long downloads, my power requirements exceeded those... More

My family very much enjoyed our extended stay at Lewa. The property is well manicured and comfortable. The main lodge area is quite homey (indoor & outdoor) featuring a fireplace, ample seating areas, small library & cocktail lounge. The staff & guides, on every level, were impeccable, making sure we were very well cared for.

Best trip of our life, everything was perfect, staff, room, food and location! We could see the elephants walking in the distance in front of our room. We were woken up with tea and biscuits every morning before our morning drive. There were lots of animals, we saw plenty of elephants, rhinos, giraffes, and zebras. Food was delicious and the...

IF you have the opportunity to go here, take it! Lewa Safari Camp was first class in every way. From the accommodations, the food, the gracious hospitality, the beautiful location and lovely grounds, every entire staff - everything lovely. The rooms are positioned so as to be secluded, the common areas are open and inviting and beautiful. We were welcomed... More

The "big five" in one afternoon. The massive excitement of a lion hunt, with the Grevy's zebra's lucky and last-minute escape. The huge thrill of seeing two leopards in two days. The sweeping vistas over the open plains where the big game roam. Not to mention our big-hearted and delightful hosts, Sacha and Tamlyn. Lewa Safari Camp delivered big time.... More

We recently returned from 15 nights of safari throughout Kenya & Tanzania. Lewa was our very first camp. After our 3 days there, I turned to my partner & said, "I predict no other camp will top this one during the remainder of our trip. No one possibly CAN!" Sure enough, no other camp did. Their attention to detail was... More
