Guests can enjoy a variety of delectable menus, which are prepared from only the freshest locally sourced produce. The guest areas include an intimate dining area, a cosy sitting room, which overlooks a floodlit waterhole, and a swimming pool. Guests can also enjoy a fine glass of wine while they sit around a blazing campfire and chat animatedly about the day’s events. Activities include day and night game drives, guided bush walks, a visit to a prehistoric archaeological site, horse riding, camel safaris and birdwatching.

Amazing! That's how I describe my trip to Lewa Safari Camp. I can't wait to return. The staff was wonderful, the guides were very knowledgable and sharing and the accommodations were superb. The view from the bathroom was spectacular. I especially liked the coffee and cookies at morning eake up call and the hot water bottle in the bed at night.We were able to visit the various projects Lewa Wildlife Conservancy supports and I especially liked the school. To us, it may seem like they have very little, but I think they have much more. One of the children at the school wants to be a neurosurgeon and she probably will become one. You can probably tell I loved it and did not want to leave.
Home away from home!”

I spent 3 nights at Lewa and did not want to leave! Izzy and Murray were the best hosts I've ever been hosted by - they are both fabulous at what they do and super-friendly. The camp has a very homey feeling (we even said "home sweet some" upon returning from a game drive!). The camp itself is gorgeous, and unlike what the Fodor's guide says they do have "regular" (i.e., non-bucket!) showers in the tents and also an electrical outlet. Lots of wildlife, including black rhinos. I was not expecting much foodwise (this was my first safari) but I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious the food was, better than I could get in a fancy restaurant back in the States. All in all an AMAZING first stay in Kenya and I can't wait to return!
This is the true Africa Experience

Couldn't wait to share my thoughts of this magical place, after arriving home from Lewa with the group from the Salt Lake City, Ut. Hogle Zoo.
