Experience the Private Maasai Mara
A secluded personal encounter with the Maasai Mara is a rare experience for modern-day safari-goers. But that is what you will find at Leleshwa. Their intimate tented safari base is located on the Siana Conservancy, a private wildlife sanctuary on the edge of the famed Maasai Mara National Reserve. Accommodating just 16 guests in seven spacious tents, Leleshwa Safari Camp rests in a pristine stream valley overlooking the green Loita Hills and rolling plains. It’s a remote haven where guests enjoy unpretentious luxury, authentic cultural encounters, and a rare private safari experience away from the crowds that frequent the rest of the Mara. The Maasai Mara region is world-renowned for its diversity and density of wildlife—see it in solitude from Leleshwa Safari Camp.
Luxury & Exclusivity in the African Wilderness
Simple elegance, personalized attention, and an all-inclusive safari experience are the hallmarks of Leleshwa Safari Camp. Though you’re sleeping under canvas in a classic bush setting, you’re supremely comfortable, with king-size beds outfitted with premium cotton linens, and en suite baths. Rinse the dust off after a game drive with a hot shower, then pull up a director’s chair on your private veranda and open up a classic title from the camp library as you sip a chilled drink from the bar. Once night falls, savor a gourmet dinner served on china and silver in the dining tent or al fresco beneath the stars. Beyond the camp bounds you’ll enjoy a range of activities including exclusive exploration within the 29,000-acre Siana Conservancy, accessible only to camp guests. Inside this private tract of wilderness, activities are possible that are not permitted in the adjacent national reserve, such as bush walks and night drives.
At Leleshwa, You’re a Conservation Partner
The Siana Conservancy, created in 2010, is Kenya’s newest land conservancy. Because of Leleshwa’s special conservation partnership with the Siana Community, guests enjoy exclusive access to this secluded reserve as well as authentic cultural visits with local Maasai, rather than the contrived events sponsored by large safari lodges. The conservancy secures the area around Leleshwa Safari Camp for future generations of Maasai people, as well as for visitors seeking a remote safari experience. A contribution to the conservancy is made on behalf of each guest who stays at Leleshwa.
