This was our first safari experience and it was heaven.. There's so much to say and all positive that I hardly know where to begin! The camp itself is discreet, elegant and comfortable. Our tent/ hut/ luxury room far exceed expectations, with beautiful linen and rugs and throws, lamps, and a hot water bottle in waiting for you when you... More

Saccha and Tamlyn greet with genuine enthusiasm and it just goes on from there. The accommodation is ....just amazing and the awakening "good morning housekeeping" with hot drinks and homemade biscuits makes the early morning silence a... More

Lewa Safari Camp was our home away from home for a wonderful five days in June 2016. We were at first attracted to the Camp because it is a part of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at this lovely camp as guests of one of the most dedicated professional management teams (Sacha and Tamlyn) that we have ever encountered in our travels. The other reviews describing the facility are "spot on". It is lovely and very comfortable. Two things that are worth adding---First, is that the conservancy does not... More
