We visited Leleshwa with our daughters who were out visiting for the Christmas holidays and it proved to be a great finale to their trip to Kenya. The booking procedure went well and we were given good directions to get to the camp we were met by David and Pele who then looked after us so well for the next...

Everything about Leleshwa was absolutely incredible. The tents are beautiful and so very comfortable. The guides and other staff were impeccable, knowledgeable, friendly, and so very happy to speak with the guests. Thorban was an excellent guide, and knew the answer to every question we could possibly think up in the Reserve. The guides dine with the guests, which is...

"Don't judge a book by its cover" we drove to the camp and the last 20 minutes to the camp were scary!!! But all started to change when the team welcomed us in the middle of Bush. By the time we got to sitting area all roads difficulties were forgotten. You don't get the fake smiles and fake luxury you...

I visited this amazing place in January 2014 for only 3 nights. I was so enthralled that I had to return to stay for 8 nights. The Siana Conservancy where the camp is located is magic. I saw almost every animal on my first evening drive except the lion, rhino and leopard. Yes 4 cheetahs! The staff is truly part...

Fantastic accommodation not far from the Masai Mara National Reserve. The trip to the Reserve took about 40mins but was packed with animal spotting and seeing the everyday life of the villages on the way. Travelling with husband and 17yo son. Glamping at it's best. Comfortable huge beds, flushing toilet and a shower that did the job when we returned....

This also is another property where I know the owners - have crossed that bridge once already. So I am honest up front. But what I can honestly say about it I would still like to share ! The camp is great because it is small, has amazingly large and stylishly equipped tents, and is run by a team that...

We visited Leleshwa in October 2014 and were part of a 7 x families group to descend on Leleshwa for 3 nights (quite a group!). As our own mini group of a daddy, mummy, 6 year old girl and an 11 month old boy we were well equipped to make varied demands on the staff and I am happy to...

We visited in early September 2014.
