This is not camping, it's glamping. Awesome tents, including personal bathrooms. Heat attentive staff-you don't have to do anything for yourself. Great safari-we saw all big five plus other animals. The best us them bringing you French press coffee in the morning-at whatever time you specify. Highly recommended! You will not be disappointed. One thing to note is that they...

We spent 4 nights, each one very special. The diversity of the stay created by our host Gillian & Joe Charleson, Raymond and the team of staff members made the atmosphere and each day unforgettable.

I spent 3 nights at the Leleshwa permanent camp and 3 nights at the Leleshwa mobile camp and both were far beyond my expectations. The mobile camp was right in the middle of the Masai Mara and the permanent camp is located in a nearby conservancy. Every detail was taken care of from the moment I stepped off my flight...

One of the best holiday I had with my family- three generations of us spent a great time there !!! This was made possible by the great hospitality from Leleshwa camp.

From the moment you arrive until the time you leave Raymond and the team at Leleshwa make you feel truly special. The 'tents' are beautiful (our kids are going to get a real shock when we next say we are going camping... especially back in the UK!). All mod cons... beautiful interiors, wood panelled shower room and hot water... and...

We just returned from a 14 day safari trip with our two kids (8 and 10).. We stayed at three different luxury camps, "glamps". While the other camps were all delightful, 5 star experiences, The Leleshwa camp takes the price though!! I don't know where to start..

Leleshwa is an amazing place! It is in a conservancy outside the Masai Mara reserve, but close enough to get in and explore the reserve with no problem. The conservancy is beautiful with a great deal of wildlife. The local Masai spotters and the Leleshwa tour guides are the best in the business. The accommodations are second to none and...

We were taken to Leleshwa Camp by our daughter-in-law and grandson who live in Kenya and who had been before. We knew it would be good but were unprepared for such a wonderful experience.
