I could talk for 10 minutes and not explain how beautiful, luxurious and great this place is. The tent is more like a very well appointed bedroom with an unbelievably great bathroom. Brass bowl sink, western style toilet and although quite rustic-a clean, private shower. The friendly staff will do everything possible to make your stay a great one. The...

We stayed here for two nights our two children (ages 4 and 8). Every part of our stay here was wonderful - the service was exemplary, every one genuinely interested in making it a perfect stay! The tents were spacious, very comfortable beds. We had read the reviews before and knew to expect the 'talking shower' experience, which was great!...

This was our second stay at Lemala Ewanjan, and we were reminded of how much we had loved it last time by how much we loved it this time. Others have described the details -- the talking showers and the Maasai askari who walk you to your tent after dark, the superb food and the lovely decor. But what makes...

4 night in tent 2 - what a great camp. Our tent had 2 comfortable double beds, cupboard space and armchairs and an inside toilet and talking shower. A staff person stands outside with a bucket of hot water (they can’t see in) and talk to you through the tent wall to see if you are ready and if the...

I miss this place so much already! The staff and the Masai warriors could not be nicer, or funnier or more gracious. We felt so well taken care of--more than at any hotel we've ever stayed at. Instead it felt like staying with friends or family. We were woken up every morning with our choice of coffee or tea, our...

We had a marvelous time at Lemala Ewanjan, even though it was just for one night. Upon arrival, we were greeting warmly by the staff and led to our tent by Mr. Praygod, our tent attendant, who gave us a thorough briefing on the safety aspects of tent-life in the middle of the Serengeti as well as how to use...

We spent two nights of our safari staying at this tented camp and we came away believing this is the ONLY way to go on this kind of trip!! The accommodations, from the dining area, food and wines, the lounge area, to our personal tent were beautiful, well equipped, and exceptional. The business of making one feel as if they...

This review is based on our experiences and expectations from staying at 14 tented camps in six African countries over the past 5 years. Lemala is an attempt to deliver a 4 star service package with a 2 star facility, with very low occupancy: it isn't working well. We put it this camp in the bottom 4 of the tented...

This was a great organization. The tents were spacious, clean and well appointed. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Meals were very good with good wine to accompany them. We loved spending 3 nights here so we were able to get to know some of the staff. Our driver Daniel was very special-patient, knowledgeable and funny. We had a...

This was the overall best accommodation we had on our 2-week safari - we didn't want to leave after 3 nights! The tents were amazingly luxurious with shower, toilet and vanity with running water right in the tent. It was great to start seeing game before we even left the property. The staff was exceptionally devoted and a lot of...

“All of the rooms are alike, and well separated, so unless distance from the lounge and mess tents is an issue, all are excellent.”

“If you MUST have wifi at all times during your stay, you may want to consider requesting for the tent closest to the main tent, where you MAY get a sporadic signal. Not guaranteed of course! ”
