The tents are beautiful, the grounds captivating, the food 5 star. David was my personal guide with Sopia as my spotter, yep I was blessed to see the big... More

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... More

I stayed in Leleshwa Camp in December with my family of five - two adults and three kids aged 11(boy), 7 and 3.5 (girls). We had a fantastic holiday!! It was exactly what we were hoping for and more. We wanted a holiday in the Mara which was engaging for the kids beyond the game drive and pool experience. From... More

Just returned back from the family holiday of a lifetime in Kenya. To celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary we pushed the boat out and took our 2 children (7,5) to Kenya for half term. Following a friends recommendation, we booked the trip through Natural Habitat Safaris - planning a few days on Safari and then 5 days at Watamu on... More

I travelled to Leleshwa Camp as part of a holiday with my sister and her two teenage children who were in Kenya for the first time. This Mara trip came at the end of the holiday and we loved it! Apart from getting lost on the way (make sure you get directions from staff) - it was fantastic in every... More

We spent here just one night. I wish we could stay more. Managers, Janine and Mark, are so nice and careful that you feel like at home. Food and tents are exellent. In the night you can hear lots of animals and even when we walked back to the tent after dinner we heard a hyena. Amazing! We had a... More

I recently went to Leleshwa as part of my honeymoon and I can not rate the experience highly enough. We far preferred the exclusivity of the reserve to the already excellent Mara. There was a real element of romance in the 'old africa' feel of the place and the staff/guides knew the perfect balance between being helpful and friendly and... More

This camp, located outside of the national park, offers a pristine place to stay. It has more of a natural feel to it than other camps. Animals surround the camp providing for wonderful sounds during the night. The guides are flexible about times of game rides but recommend the best times of day and night. Of course, game drives are... More

I've been fortunate to now have gone on 4 safaris in different parts of Africa (Kenya, Uganda, Botswana and South Africa). Nothing tops Leleshwa. The accommodations are top-notch and the service is outstanding. Because they have their own reservation, you are truly enjoying all the wilderness has to offer, but in a very safe manner. I have very high expectations... More
