The camp is absolutely beautiful with pool and great garden as well as tastefully furnished and well appointed luxury safari tents. Food is very tasty and the camp caters for vegetarians. Run by Tam and Sasha, the camp's service is flawless. My wife celebrated her birthday and Tam organized a surprise bush breakfast which was truly memorable. The conservancy itself...

A nice camp with charming hosts (Tamlin & Sacha), taking the time to chat with us and share their passion for the place. We enjoyed the surprise bush breakfast sitting just in front of the rhinos.

Thank you for your review and wonderful photos - especially bush breakfast - there are not many places where you are able to share your breakfast with three White Rhinos! It is a shame you were not able to visit the baby rhinos during your visit, but at least there is something to come back for! Warm regards, Sacha, Tamlyn...

This was our last stop on a two-week safari trip to Tanzania and Kenya, and perhaps the best accommodations and truest safari expedition we had. Surrounded by a private conservancy (which happens to contain one tenth of the continent's white and black rhino population), we could do far more "off-road" excursions. Our guide Festus was not only astoundingly eagle-eyed in...

Lewa Safari Camp was our first of 3 camps during our 11-day tour of Kenya, and it was a perfect location to kick off the trip! Not only did we get great overall wildlife viewing, we got exposed to the conservation story of the Conservancy and its people. Having that perspective lent great insight during our next stays. The camp...

The stay in Lewa Safari Camp was everything you'd expect of a safari, the game viewing is excellent and, of course, rhinos and cheetahs were the highlights while out on the conservancy. Inside the camp the habituated birdlife made morning coffee a delight. For me the most important part of Lewa Conservancy, though, is as a model for anti-poaching and...

We returned from a trip of a lifetime in Africa, and spent 3 days in Lewa Safari Camp. Loved it! It is a small camp and the managers Sasha and Tamlyn were great hosts.
