There are plenty of nice safari lodges in Kenya, with clean and beautiful rooms, delicious food, and lovely grounds. But only some, like Lewa Safari Lodge, go the extra mile with those little touches that make it so memorable and enjoyable. It was my wife's 40th birthday party, which is right around our American Thanksgiving holiday, her favorite holiday. The...

We spent three days at Lewa and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the service and accommodation. Sacha and Tamlyn, the managers, provide a great personalised touch, always thoughtfully checking on you. The food was fantastic and the swimming pool area is very well kept and peaceful. The luxury tents are all located far enough away from each...

Lewa Safari Camp is a wonderful slice of heaven in Laikipia Kenya. The staff is attentive, warm and welcoming. The safari guides are among the best in Kenya; knowledgeable and eager to share. Don't miss an opportunity to visit.

Our room was excellent, the hosts and guides were perfect, and the food excellent! We thought that we were in a 5 star hotel, but we were in the bush. Don't know how they could improve on the rooms and food.

We loved everything about this camp! Our guide, Tom, is clearly in tune with wildlife, which, combined with his wealth of knowledge, made each game drive a memorable adventure. We enjoyed sharing the drives with people from other parts of the world and made new friends. Every staff member at camp was attentive and gracious. The coffee and tea service...
