Elsas Kopje Sundowner

Widely renowned as one of the most elegant lodges in Africa and one of the most beautiful parks in Kenya, Meru is known for having more diversity of animal species than any other park in East Africa. During their stay, guests have access to game drives throughout the park which offers a thriving rhino sanctuary and is famous for large elephant herds, hippo, lion, and birdlife.

Amani from Shanga Conducting training at Maasai Mamas Boma

For those looking to get a prime viewing spot of the Great Migration, Serengeti Migration Camp is perfectly positioned for guests to enjoy front row seats.

Located next to the famous Grumeti river and situated right in the path of the migration where it starts, the camp offers low-impact high-action game viewing during one of the most awe-inspiring spectacles of life. Each of the tents is surrounded by its own 360-degree veranda deck, which in turn creates a private sanctuary to enjoy the constant game sightings and ever-present sounds of the bush.

Amani from Shanga Conducting training at Maasai Mamas Boma

Shanga's beading expert Amani recently spent a few days at the Lemoti Maasai Boma teaching the Maasai ladies how to refine their beadwork. This was a collaborative effort between the boma, Shanga and the Land & Life Foundation.

Amani focused the training around making the colourful beaded cuffs for Elewana guest water bottles and the Tarangire Treetops turndown gifts which all guests receive before departing the camp.

The Maasai ladies and the boma leader, Toima, expressed how fortunate and excited they were to have beading training with Amani. In their own words "we are confident now to make quality pieces that will ensure business sustainability, especially all the new beading techniques and quality of the beads".

Maasai women are artisans and in the modern world they have transformed their beading skills into a business. This enables them to have a sustainable income where they can prioritise the needs of their family, as most of the money they make from beading is for food and sending their children to school. In some cases, some can even own cattle by selling the bead work.

lewa marathon

On the 24th June one of the wildest marathons will once again take place on the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Staff members at Lewa Safari Camp will be on hand to help with health and safety at the event.

Established in 2000, the fundraising event has grown from an initial 180 entries at its debut to just over 1,200 participants. There are now also three categories that runners can take part in including the full marathon (43km), half marathon (21km), the executive race (10km) and a junior fun run (5km).


Serengeti Migration Camp offers guests a wildlife experience in surround sound and embodies the true “camp” experience with all the luxurious touches that Elewana is known for.

Comprised of 20 luxurious elevated tents, each with spacious and richly furnished bedrooms and 360-degree verandas, the property blends seamlessly into the surrounding environment. Home to resident hippos who wallow and bark throughout the day (and night!), guests can enjoy the constant game sightings and the ever-present sounds of the bush from the sanctuary of their own tented camp. They also have access to the main 'tent' which has a split-level lounge, along with a swimming pool, restaurant and viewing platforms that offer views across the river and the rugged landscape beyond. Along with front row access to the Great Migration, guests can also enjoy activities such as walking safaris and balloon safaris during their stay.


With incredible viewing opportunities at the camp, Said expands on why some of the most incredible sights can be seen without leaving your tent.

What can guests expect from the migration season at Migration Camp

Guests can expect to see the migration at close quarters, as the camp is very strategically located meaning that the migration passes right by the property as the wildebeest head north and again when they are heading south.

What are the best months for guests to witness the migration in action

The best time to see the migration at Migration Camp is towards the end of June until late July and again between October and December. However, guests can still witness the migration in the north as we are only a drive away from the river crossing at the Mara, enabling great sightings for many months.

Are there some top spots where guests are guaranteed great viewing opportunities

During the season there is a perfect viewing spot along the Grumeti River, by the Mara River but the great advantage of Migration Camp is the viewing possibilities around the camp itself.

The migration season has a reputation to being overcrowded, how do Migration Camp guides manage this

Our guides are well trained and very respectful of nature and environment. To avoid the crowds, our guides have found a few secluded spots especially at the crossings. As for the location of the camp, that is our very own special viewing point.

What alternative activities are there for guests away from the migration

For those with a sense of adventure we offer nature walks with armed rangers and walking guides. At the camp massages are also available. Other activities include bush breakfasts and a visit to authentic Maasai Boma, however guests should note that some of these activities have an additional charge.

What is your most memorable migration sighting

I had a guest who came for a couple of nights with the intention of seeing the migration, at that time the wildebeest had already moved further north, even though its accessible to see, the guest’s partner said they did not want to drive for a couple of hours. The day they were checking out, after breakfast, we had a group of at least a thousand wildebeest come to the camp. The most exciting thing was that they came running and stopped in front of his tent. It was incredible phenomenon for me, especially as the guests left so happy.
