In July 2015, I returned to Lewa Safari Camp for the second time. I was greeted by new managers, Sacha, Tamlyn, and their beautiful little girl Meila. They made the experience so wonderful, that I will definitely be back in 2017 with my granddaughters. They were professional but so wonderfully easy to talk to and share our daily experiences with.... More

I have stayed twice now at Lewa Safari Camp (2013 and 2015) and plan on returning in 2017. The accommodations are first class, the campgrounds are gorgeous, and the food is better than anywhere else I have stayed! What makes this camp perfect, however, is the staff...the staff here is superb. I have stayed at many different camps and have... More

We had the opportunity to stay at this amazing lodge while visiting Kenya with a group from the Dallas Zoo. It is hard to describe how outstanding this location is without photos, and hour to show other photos. The accommodations, the food, the staff, all top notch. Then you come to the guides taking you into the conservancy, community and... More

Lewa Safari Camp is a great option for Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. We had Tent No. 7 that was right at the front, with good views of the surrounding area - we even had Rhino in front of the tent one morning. Public areas - these are quite substantive with both indoor and outdoor areas. They are comfortable, but do not... More

What a beautiful camp right in the middle of the Lewa conservancy.. The guide was superb, was tracking animals by their tracks on the road.. The food was exceptional and above all the service was 6 star!! We went with 2 small kids (8 and 10) they enjoyed every minute..

First stop for us in Arica so it was fun. Manager Sasha a little off-putting with orientation that sounded like he was talking to second-graders. Also had to sign a waiver, which was first time I've ever had to do that in all my world travels. Don't know if other places in Africa ask for a waiver, since none of... More

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.
