This camp was suggested by our travel agent. We knew nothing of this place but took a leap of faith. I am so happy that I trusted our agent. Although the managers were new to the camp, I did not sense it until we were told so during check out. All through our stay, we experienced seamless, attentive service, with... More

Oh dear - I am really struggling to rate this camp. First off - we were happy during our stay there. But our problem is that the Camp tries to be two things at the same time. The main area is more like a Safari Lodge - Lawns, fine swimming pool although a bit of refurbishment would not be amiss,... More

Beautiful spot and unparalleled hospitality. We went for our honeymoon, something that the staff at Lewa Safari Camp were not aware of until we arrived. As soon as we told them the entire staff really went above and beyond (something they seem to do for every guest regardless) making sure our stay was uniquely tailored to us honeymooning and completely...

Our recent stay in Lewa Camp was absolutely wonderful. The staff couldn't do enough for us and Lucy, the manager was so warm and friendly. The tent was very comfortable and the food great. Our guide was very professional and our game drives were very successful. It was truly a memorable experience! Laurie R

Thank you for your glowing review! We're so pleased that you took advantage of our ‘hide’, which many people miss out on!

I’m sure our friends Callum and Sophie and the whole team at Lewa House would love to hear your positive feedback so maybe you can re-post it to their Trip Advisor page?
