A place we would love to return to!
A beautiful landscape to arrive in and a beautiful camp with a beautiful garden, an oasis in the middle of nature! Waking up next to so many different birds was already special! We enjoyed everything, the food, the great staff, the spacious family tent and of course the game drives with Tom, our guide, with whom we clicked very well. We really missed him the following days. We highly recommend Elewana Lewa Camp. Don't forget to book a massage :-) , professional therapists!
The Big Five in Action
Absolutely brilliant-again. I flew into Lewa Downs on a small aircraft landing on a dirt airstrip from Wilson Airport in Nairobi. From there I joined a few other guests on a series of game drives in Toyota Landcruisers. The guides are very well educated and knowledgeable about all aspects of the private conservancy. I saw all the usual 'Big 5' but their claim to fame is the work with rhinos. In the evening we stopped for a sundowner after watching a variety of animals and birds. In the morning, breakfast was taken out in the wild. Beautiful. The tents were comfortable and well equipped with excellent facilities. On arrival I was given a water bottle to keep with me, because Kenya has a 'no single use plastic bottle law'.
This was the first stop for our return to Kenya and it didn’t disappoint. We were greeted by the lovely George at the airstrip and our safari began! Lewa is wonderful, having previously visited Borana, the sightings here were more abundant. Rhino absolutely everywhere, you momentarily forget they are endangered. Lions that had been chased up a tree by a herd of buffalo, majestic elephants, playful jackal pups, a male cheetah and two black mambas mating near the swamp, never in any danger though! The surrounding scenery with views across to Mt Kenya are stunning. The camp itself was very great, the room lovely, we seemed to have a visitor in the form of a Dik Dik during the day and a porcupine at night, fabulous. The food was also delicious at all times. We had a beautiful bush breakfast, probably the most stunning views we’ve ever had for one across to Samburu. The staff were all wonderful, Charl, Redempta, the chef’s and the fabulous George. Whose knowledge and laugh kept us entertained for our whole stay. So much so when we saw him whilst we were flying via Meru to the Mara we jumped off the plane quickly to say Jambo! Asante sana to all the staff for a short but sweet visit which we loved so much.
Amazing safari camp experience
Amazing experience both food, accomodation, game drives and sights. Staff was spectacular. Breakfast in the bush. Chef with constantly changing full board menu and catered for my wife's gluten free diet. Concentration of big 5 in Lewa Conservancy is good.
LEWA Safari Camp is a must!!!!
We were recommended by a friend to stay at the Elewana LEWA Safari Camp situated in the LEWA Wildlife Conservancy. The Luxury Camp site is well appointed with spacious, beautifully decorated tents with on suite bathrooms. There is a gorgeous veranda for watching the wildlife (from a distance) and for taking a book or afternoon nap. The swimming pool is inviting & the cuisine & wine selection paralleled a fine dining restaurant. The staff & Manager, Charl were gracious & accomodated every need. The guides who took us through the Conservancy for morning & afternoon drives were knowledgeable & approachable. The wildlife is plentiful, including 4 of the Big Five (no leopard). A large variety of birds, antelope, giraffe, zebra, etc. We will definitely be back!!!!!
