Accommodation:

2 nights Kitirua Conservancy, Amboseli: Elewana Tortilis Camp Amboseli

Famed for its long-tusked elephants, views of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and hundreds of species of bird, Amboseli National park is a photographer’s heaven. The park’s name derives from the Maasai word for ‘salty-dust’, thanks to its barren desert-like plains, however, thanks to springs running off the mountain this land is teeming with wildlife.

Elewana Tortilis Camp Amboseli is located on the southwestern edge of the park, facing the mountain and overlooking its own private conservancy— Kitirua Conservancy. The en suite tents are spacious, comfortable and offer views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The first eco-lodge of its size, the main lounge, bar, and dining area, have been built using natural materials, including classic thatched roofs, representative of the building style of the area.

Enjoy game drives in open-sided vehicles, exclusive access to Kitirua Conservancy, guided walks, bush breakfasts, cultural visits, and stunning sundowners.

Accommodation:

2 nights Loisaba Conservancy, Laikipia: Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp

Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp sits on the edge of an escarpment with unhindered views across the Loisaba Conservancy towards Mount Kenya.

The luxury camp boasts a contemporary African style, with twelve airy, spacious, en suite tents. The communal areas include an open-air dining area, lounge, deck, and one of Kenya’s most picturesque infinity pools. Many activities are available to the guests, including camel and horse riding, fishing, spending time with the anti-poaching sniffer dogs, day and night game drives as well as bush meals under African skies.

Loisaba Conservancy is a success story of conservation. Home to elephant, lion, wild dog, and an abundance of other species, Loisaba is a prime example of successful collaboration between conservation, communities, ranching, and tourism.

Accommodation:

2 nights Masai Mara National Reserve, Masai Mara: Elewana Sand River Masai Mara

In a secluded location on the banks of the Sand River, Elewana Sand River Masai Mara is a luxury tented lodge offering wildlife viewing off the beaten track.

Consisting of the main mess area and 16 tents, the canvas and wood build replicates the tented safaris of the 1920s. The spacious tents each feature a private deck and an outdoor shower. Wildlife wanders in and out of the camp to cross the river below; this includes a large proportion of the three million wildebeest that move from the Serengeti into the Mara during the great migration.

Before or after your daily game drives, relax by the pool or take a book and lose yourself in your surroundings; visit local Masai villages; enjoy sundowners on the open Mara plains; eat breakfast in a dry river bed. This camp allows guests to experience ‘the bush’ in its natural form, without the loss of modern luxury.
