It took me a while to title this review because I couldn't figure out which synonym for "excellent," "amazing," "wonderful," etc. to use to describe our stay at Lewa Safari Camp. While our stay was short (3 nights, 4 days) - too short, really - I had such a spectacular experience at Lewa that when I left the airport at...

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.

“Some tents are further away from the main house where you have your meals. If walking is a concern I would choose from tents 4-9.”
