Our stay with Leleshwa Camp really was a journey of enlightenment and rejuvenation, just as their website claims it will be...
...starting with a stunning flight over the vast plains of the Masai Mara
...being greeted by our guide and a Masai Warrior at the Siana Springs airstrip, seeing a giraffe mother and baby on our drive to camp
...and welcomed into the Leleshwa family by one of the owners at camp
...viewing our tent for the first time and being amazed at the comfort, serenity, beauty and blendedness with the natural environment, feeling like we are on nature's doorstep
...Samuel making bow and arrow and spears for the kids, then going off hunting with them, crouching in the grass and trying to sneak up on the zebra's and thomson gazelles
...delicious, mouth-watering delicacies over candlelit dinners
...bush bonfires and drinks
...sunsets next to a herd of gazelles
...walking safari, seeing lion tracks and learning about the local vegetation
...games drives that included a spectacular viewing of a pride of lions hunting a buffalo, from initial sighting to attack, and picnics in the mara
...and of course the unforgettable visit to the Masai village, including a gathering by the fire inside a simple hut.
The feeling we left with is personal, unique, special. An unforgettable experience. Our 7 year old son cried when we left - something he's never done before despite having been to many places all over the world. Thank you Leleshwa!
