Your Stay with Elewana

Luxury is defined by that which is hardest to attain. In our busy world, this is often quite simply time with your family, an opportunity to relax and unwind and - most of all - the thrill of a real adventure. The Elewana Collection understands this; we provide more than fresh cotton sheets, elegant rooms, and gourmet meals

RESPONSIBLE TOURISM

Responsible tourism is a key focus for each and every Elewana Collection property, be it revenue-sharing projects that support local conservancies, sponsorship of schools, students and medical clinics, or responsible recycling of waste materials. Property managers are passionate about their local environments and communities, and constantly strive to find new and sustainable eco-friendly ways to protect and support them. All Kenya-based properties are members of Ecotourism Kenya, the majority achieving the highest eco-accolade of a Gold Eco-rating. Five of our Kenyan properties have attained a Silver Level International Eco-Rating with Sustainable Travel International.

PROFESSIONAL GUIDING

Elewana Collection prides itself on its fun, experienced and knowledgeable guides. Most guides come from the local area and have an intimate knowledge of their surroundings - what makes each season different from the last and how the local wildlife families interact, grow and change from one year to the next. All guides are minimum Bronze KPSGA qualification, (or comparable in Tanzania), and many have achieved the prestigious Silver or Gold level.

SMALL, UNIQUE & ELEGANT PROPERTIES

Each of our camps, lodges, and beach hideaways has its own individual style and charm, offering experiences that make it completely unique from any other property. However, the properties of the Elewana Collection all share the same ethos - high quality management and professional service, attention to detail, delicious culinary creations, prime locations, small and intimate in size, and offering first class activities with a savvy blend of low-impact tourism.

PRIME LOCATIONS

Each of our properties lies in an outstanding location, either within prime game viewing areas with spectacular views (often in completely private wildlife conservancies), on quiet world class white sand beaches or, in the case of Arusha Coffee Lodge, the prettiest and most convenient spot in Arusha.

DIVERSE ACTIVITIES

Elewana Collection offers the complete bush and beach experience - game drives, guided bush & forest walks, horseback riding, camel trekking, lion tracking, fishing, cultural visits, spa treatments and massages, sundowners at sunset, surprise bush meals, scuba, snorkelling, kite surfing in warm tropical waters, starlit dinners on white sandy beaches and the experience of sleeping out under the African sky

CHILD FRIENDLY

We encourage families to experience an East African safari as a wonderfully inspiring, educational and memorable family holiday. The local East African culture treasures children, and our activities and wildlife fascinate parents and children alike. Our small boutique properties allow for personalized and flexible mealtimes, and many of our properties also offer accommodation specifically designed for families.

CULTURAL EXPERIENCES

All of our properties employ most of their staff from the surrounding community, therefore guests have a chance to intimately encounter the fascinating cultures of that area. We encourage our guests to visit the local community and conservation projects where they can meet the people and experience, first-hand, how their stay at an Elewana Collection property makes a difference. Visits can be arranged to traditional villages, local homesteads and schools
