Guided bush walks

The area surrounding Leleshwa Camp within the Siana Conservancy offers a range of terrain to be explored. We can tailor short walks across the plains or longer hikes of two to four hours through the forest and over the surrounding hills for our more active guests. You will be escorted by your guide and tracker who will point out tracks and signs left by the animals as well as provide insight into various plants used as sustenance or traditional medicines by the Maasai herdsmen. You may also prefer to combine your walk with a ‘camp out night’ at a carefully selected camp site accompanied by your guide and chef.

Day & night game drives

Enjoy a full or half day of discovery in the world renowned Masai Mara Game Reserve which is within comfortable driving distance of Leleshwa Camp. Your guide and tracker will set the route for your game drive depending upon the season and their local knowledge of where the best wildlife viewing is to be found. As the animals are most active during the early hours of the day, we recommend an early start with a mid morning picnic breakfast pausing for lunch under a shaded tree on the banks of the Mara River. Your guide and tracker will set out a traditional picnic with ice cold drinks after which you can enjoy a siesta on the blankets and cushions we provide before continuing your afternoon game drive back towards Camp.

Explore the Leleshwa Conservancy which boasts a rich diversity of game and bird species. Game drives in our conservancy are private and undisturbed therefore guests will rarely encounter other vehicles. Many guest enjoy ending their stay at Leleshwa Camp by rising early on their final morning to watch the sunrise over the African plains with a steaming cup of coffee and hot muffin. In the late afternoon, on your game drive, stop for a ‘sundowner’ cocktail to watch the sun set and prepare for your night drive back to camp. where you will discover many different nocturnal animals as well as predators coming out to hunt.

School visits

Every guest who stays at Leleshwa Camp does so in the knowledge that they are making a direct contribution towards the upliftment of the Masai Community. These improvements to local lives include infrastructure, health, education and the environment. We have created the Leleshwa Camp Community Fund (LCCF) for this purpose and the primary objective is to assist children of the area with attaining literacy to give them a sound grounding for further personal growth and development.

We achieve this by assisting an established school, Mpopongi Primary School, to ensure that the existing facility operates to its maximum potential. We assist the most needy families within the Siana Area whilst promoting gender equality in the school. Children are also taught the value of conservation principles which demonstrates how the community benefits directly from allowing tourism activities on their land.

Weddings & Blessings

The Masai Mara is an ideal location for your wedding, honeymoon or renewing your marriage vows. Your ceremony will be one of the greatest occasions throughout your life’s journey and Leleshwa Camp will ensure that you celebrate in style and make your day truly memorable. We offer a flexible service tailored to your exact requirements be it for a group of friends and family joining you or just for the two of you.

In the Maasai culture the wedding is all about the journey of the bride to her groom at his manyatta (village) and her welcoming. These traditions and associated blessings are incorporated into your ceremony. Each of the bride and groom are met by a group of dancing warriors and ladies and led to the Masai Laibon (spiritual leader) who performs the blessing, as you overlook the surrounding plains. The day is ended with cocktails (or a local brew if you prefer), an African sunset and further celebrations around the fireplace before a starlight dinner with new friends.

On request we will arrange Maasai head garments for the bride and a rungu & spear and traditional Maasai throw for the groom. All the proceeds of your ceremony will be donated to the Masai community.
