We enjoyed 4 days at Lewa Safari Camp after starting our summer safari in the Masai Mara. The weather in both places was perfect -- cool mornings and nights and warm days. Upon arrival in Lewa, we were greeted with a big smile at the air strip by our guide, Norman. After 4 days in the Mara we had not... More

The camp site was beautiful. if it is sunny durning your game drives you will see Mt. Kenya! The rooms were impeccable as well as the food. Sacha and Tamlyn were outstanding.

As a safari veteran, I recommend Lewa as a first stop for a safari. At Lewa, you will be able to get your best sightings and photos of endangered black and white rhinos, as well as understand the lengths that conservationists must go to to protect the endangered African rhinoceros. In all my other safaris I had two rhino sightings,... More

Traveled with a group to this gem of a camp in Northern Kenya and the majority of us agreed this was our favorite camp of all we visited. The tented rooms are luxurious with large porches perfect for enjoying a private view of game on the plain across from the camp. The common areas were filled with comfortable couches and... More

Coming from the Amboseli region so initially I was taken aback at the lack of animals roaming the beautiful landscape. But the sightings of the Cheetahs up so close as well as the Black and White Rhinos made up for the initial feeing of being underwhelmed. As for the camp itself it's great, everything you would expect from a luxury... More
