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 the moment we arrived at the camp we felt like we were visiting friend in their fabulous camp. The atmosphere was so relaxed and the kids were not made to feel like they were in the way of any guests. There was adequate space for the kids to play without being in the way of other guests as they might be in a hotel lobby etc. The kids were also kept engaged with activities when they were not on game drives. They had bow and arrow making and archery which my older two kids absolutely loved! The girls had a bead making session with two Maasai ladies.
We enjoyed the sundowners in the conservancy, the game drives in the Mara, the long walks, the food, the friendships, the whole expereince
The staff at Leleshwa Camp were not only knowledgeable but also very pleasant and friendly. We had Simon as our tour guide and Pere as our Maasai tracker and they were both amazing!! Andy the Manager and his team at Leleshwa Camp are doing fantastic job and I cannot recommend this camp enough for anyone looking for a unique experience of the Mara.
We booked directly with Leleshwa Camp's Nairobi office. I would like to request that they consider enabling their customers to pay by credit card as it was a little inconvenient having to deposit the money into their bank account.
If you want to visit the Mara, don't hesitate to go to Leleshwa Camp!!
