I stayed at Lewa safari camp with my girlfriend this September. I had been to many safari camps but this was her first time and it was the perfect camp to start off with!

The rooms were very nice and comfortable. We opened up our tent in the morning and the first thing that we saw just outside is a reticulated giraffe! What a treat!

Lewa Safari Camp was our first of 3 camps during our 11-day tour of Kenya, and it was a perfect location to kick off the trip! Not only did we get great overall wildlife viewing, we got exposed to the conservation story of the Conservancy and its people. Having that perspective lent great insight during our next stays.

The camp itself is lovely; tents are very comfortable, and the food fantastic. We were hosted by an interim camp manager who was there for only a few weeks, but it was clear that the regular managers had a great crew. They set up a bush breakfast for us after a morning walking safari that was spectacular--an omelet station out in the wild, what a treat! And the interim manager, Tony, was a great source of stories and insights about the country overall based on his experience as a guide.

Our camp guides--Daniel and Tom--were terrific, and very knowledgeable. They took us on a couple of walking tours, which we would highly recommend!

The stay in Lewa Safari Camp was everything you'd expect of a safari, the game viewing is excellent and, of course, rhinos and cheetahs were the highlights while out on the conservancy.

Inside the camp the habituated birdlife made morning coffee a delight.

For me the most important part of Lewa Conservancy, though, is as a model for anti-poaching and protection and, while I was there, Lewa Safari Camp arranged for me to meet Edward and his anti-poaching sniffer dog team and to be shown around the anti-poaching Op.s room.

Meeting the baby rhinos in the nursery was also, of course, a highlight.

I learned that, as it is owned by the Conservancy the Lewa Safari Camp contributes 60% of all the fees earned by tourism that help pay the Conservancies massive running costs - costs that allow it to be THE model for anti-poaching in Africa. There are many other reasons but this contribution alone would be enough to make me choose this camp on a visit to Lewa.

Room Tip: Wifi was available in the public areas but not in the rooms - if you need connectivity ask for a room close to these!

We returned from a trip of a lifetime in Africa, and spent 3 days in Lewa Safari Camp. Loved it! It is a small camp and the managers Sasha and Tamlyn were great hosts. The safari viewing was incredible; the Lewa Conservancy is famous for black rhinos, and we saw many of them. We also had great viewings of cheetahs and Grevy zebras (also on the endangered species list). The staff at Lewa were gracious and warm; they woke us up with our drink of choice at dawn to get us ready for our mornign game drives. At lunch time, we would order our "sundowners" and the drinks would be packed and ready to go in the safari vehicles before we were done with lunch and ready to take off on the afternoon game drives. Dinner was warm and convivial and food was great. The rooms were extremely comfortable. Would definitely go back if we had the chance.

Thank you for such a lovely review - we really enjoyed hosting you during your stay and are delighted to hear that you saw the best of Lewa's wildlife. We're seeing plenty of the cheetah - particularly the mother and her lovely cubs - they are indeed quite something.
We do hope you'll come back and see us again one day.

In July 2015, I returned to Lewa Safari Camp for the second time. I was greeted by new managers, Sacha, Tamlyn, and their beautiful little girl Meila. They made the experience so wonderful, that I will definitely be back in 2017 with my granddaughters. They were professional but so wonderfully easy to talk to and share our daily experiences with. The rhinos are an awesome sight to behold. We traveled to a Masaii community while we were there, and it was one of the nicest villages I have ever had the pleasure to experience. The people there made it a great learning experience for my 13 year old grandson. The accommodations at Lewa Safari Camp are top notch and the food is delicious! My grandson is still talking about the bread they baked daily! I stayed in tent 00 next to the managers home and it was beautiful. They are in the process of updating some of the tents even though I think the old tents are still wonderful. Beautiful views and wonderful staff make this a perfect place!

Room Tip: They have family tents which makes it nice when traveling with small children.

Dear Sandra
What a great review - thank you so much. The Chef and his team in the kitchen are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our food so much - good to hear that the tales of our fresh bread are still being told! Next time, we'll have to give you the recipe...
Delighted that you enjoyed your trip to the local village - it's particularly good fun for children so we're pleased that your grandson enjoyed himself.
Do hope you'll come back and see us again soon.
Best wishes,
Sacha, Tamlyn and all at Lewa Safari Camp
