Three nights and four days at Leleshwacamp ... Named after a tree in the Mara bush... There were leleshwa leaves left at our bedside, on our linens, as a greeting, and a lovely gift on our arrival.
We were met at the airstrip by two Maasai warriors, Julian and Rinka, who drove us to the camp, all the while explaining their culture and what we were seeing en route in excellent English. They stayed with us, taking us on game drives, walking trips, along with eating at our table. We even visited one of their families' villages, dancing with the men and women, and being invited into a home in the boma.
Our relief Manager, Andy, was most hospitable and informative.
Our tent was definitely a 5-star, with a flush toilet and hot water available in thr mornings and evenings. The game drives always involved a sundowner (cocktails at sunset, and or dinner) and we could also have an early breakfast picnic drive. Most memorable was our late night drives.
Everyone was ready for any type of activity we desired.
Our children had two babies under two, and they were welcomed and cherished by the very friendly Kenyans.
The food was fabulous, always fresh and plentiful.
The other guests had their own guides, and dinner in the dining tent was always fun to swap stories, and later by the fire.
Nothing could surpass this vacation of a lifetime.
