We spent a total of 8 nights based out of Lugenda Camp, 4 nights in camp and 4 nights on a fly-camp (3 in a tent and one in a bed roll under the stars).
When we arrived a fellow traveller made the statement 'Wow, this place makes Kenya look like New York City'; we knew we had therefore made the right choice! The location is breathtaking, alongside the river and amongst the inselbergs.
The tents are luxurious with plenty of space for clothes and bathroom facilities to rival any conventional hotel. We were located in a tent 3 units away from the main lodge which meant we were escorted to and from the lodge after dark which added an exciting element to our stay, not knowing what might be blocking our path!! On numerous occasions a herd of elephants were in camp and several type of monkey were commonplace.
The standard of service is excellent throughout, there's free laundry service and morning and evening game drives, the latter incorporating a 'sundowner' - a new concept to us but we soon got used to a G&T and freshly made snacks in a stunning location each evening!
I can highly recommend the 'fly-camp' option too - the same standard of service and quality of food is maintained, even a hot shower is made available, unless camping out on an inselberg which is an amazing experience.
All the staff at Lugenda make your stay special; I can't recommend it highly enough and look forward to returning one day
