Serengeti Migration Camp was recently honoured with top accolades in the 2023 Travel+Leisure World’s Best Awards.

The beloved camp won the #19 spot amongst the Top 100 Hotels in the World and received the #3 spot amongst the Top 10 Best Africa Safari Lodges. Travel+Leisure readers applauded the luxury tented camp, with one reader noting it is “an outstanding camp with amazing views, service, and location. The staff was attentive, and the food was spectacular.”

Serengeti Migration Camp is perfectly positioned for guests to enjoy front row seats to the Great Migration. Located next to the famous Grumeti River and situated right in the path of where the migration starts, the camp offers low-impact high-action game viewing during one of the most awe-inspiring spectacles of life. Each of the 20 elevated luxurious and spacious 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.

The property is featured in the list of all winners in the August 2023 issue of Travel + Leisure.

Located high up on the Nyaboro Hills on the edge of the escarpment overlooking the endless plains of Serengeti National Park, guests of Serengeti Explorer will enjoy a prime central location to the Great Migration and other phenomenal wildlife sightings.

Home to many thousands of wild and rare animals, the south-central area of Serengeti has one of the densest populations of big cats amongst all of Africa. The regular sightings of lions, leopards, and cheetah, also mean guests might catch a hunt in real life. Amidst the quintessential Serengeti landscapes of acacia-studded savanna for which the park is famous for, guests will also meet elephants, hippos, and buffalo, and a variety of antelopes including impala, topi and of course, the infamous wildebeest. In fact, the property is situated in the perfect location to catch this annual event when the herds move through the park from April to June traveling north and then return south from October to December.


Located in the stunning 57,000-acre Loisaba Conservancy, the Loisaba Star Beds were Kenya’s original star beds. The stylish but rustically designed rooms blend seamlessly into the surrounding environment. The location on top of a rocky kopje affords awe inspiring views across the surrounding valley and a permanent waterhole below attracts a plethora of wildlife who visit day and night.

Hand crafted, comfortable four poster beds are built on the base of old land rover chassis so they can be wheeled in and out from the shelter, enabling guests to spend a night sleeping out under the glimmering star filled night sky.

Aside from watching the animal kingdom pass from your bed (which would be tempting day and night) there are a range of actives on offer including game drives, walking safari, e-bike safari, camel safari, fishing, and horse riding plus a visit to the see Loisaba’s anti-poaching unit and the remarkable sniffer dogs.

Dining at the star beds takes place in a peaceful, intimate setting with wonderful views. The food incorporates local fresh ingredients with an ever-changing choice of seasonal products served up in delicious salads, grilled dishes, and creative master pieces by the on-site chef.


Shanga’s partnership with local Masai women from the Lemoti Boma near Tarangire Treetops Lodge has expanded further. The head beader at Shanga recently taught the local Masai women how to bead a bottle cuff which Elewana guests will receive as a gift to use together with a reusable water bottle, allowing guests to easily identify their bottles whilst on safari with a larger group. The beautiful handmade beaded cuffs fit onto the bottles and guests can choose their favourite colour to bling up their bottle. The selling of these beaded items to Elewana is a major source of income that enables the Masai ladies to send their children to school and support their community.


For the second year, Born Free supported by the Elewana Collection held the Walk on the Wild Side 20,000 step challenge in Meru. On August 9th the Meru community marked World Lion Day (August 10) and World Elephant Day (August 12) with hundreds of local community members and school children from Meru walking 20,000 steps, covering approximately 8km. Significantly, each step represented the number of remaining lions and elephants in the wild.

During the day Born Free Kenya, Elewana, Kenya Wildlife Service, and other partner organisations delivered talks on wildlife conservation, emphasizing the collective responsibility in supporting Meru's conservation efforts.

Should you wish to support the event you can still donate to contribute to the protection of magnificent creatures like lions and elephants. Your contribution will support wildlife conflict mitigation techniques, including eye-cow, de-snaring, beehive fences, water catchment projects, predator deterrent lights, camera traps, predator-proof bomas, community outreaches, and conservation clubs.

Pride of Meru is fundraising for Born Free Foundation (justgiving.com)


Tell us a little about what guests can expect from a game drive from Kifaru House and how likely is it that guests will see the rhinos that Lewa is so famous for

First and foremost, as the name suggests “kifaru” is a swahili word for Rhino, and guests are pretty much guaranteed to see these animals. The Big Five also call the conservancy home, and although not guaranteed, guests have a very good chance of witnessing all these mammals. There is such wide diversity of species on Lewa, there is so much to explore and witness. Lewa Conservancy is a live success story for rhino conservation and protection of the endangered Grevy’s Zebra so all the guides are passionate about sharing that positive story.

What are the lesser-known flora and fauna that you like to show guests on Lewa

Lewa has incredible biodiversity of both flora and fauna. As well as the Big Five, Lewa is also home to the Special Northern Five - Reticulated Giraffe, Endangered Grevy’s Zebra, Somali Ostrich, Gerenuk and Beisa Oryx. There are over 400 species of birds, some which are migratory, beautiful Acacia trees, butterflies, including the African migrant which congregates in big swarms hovering above the acacia trees during flowering season. There is beautiful scenery carved from historic volcanic eruptions, from the peak of Mt Kenya on glorious mornings to the beautiful Lewa Savanna.
Many people don’t realise that Lewa is a historical site where it is possible to see old stone tools, such as hands axes, used by early man.

You recently took a road show to Thailand, Manila, and the Philippines, your first abroad, what was your most lasting impression from the visit

I was fascinated by the huge planes flying at very high altitude 40,000ft and all the tall budlings, I really enjoyed meeting monks in the temple.

On the same trip you were educating local school children in conservation, tell us a little about the main messages you were conveying

Conservation is the only way of life to make the planet a better place for all of us, full of flora and fauna and for future generations. I also shared the message that we need to stop the poaching of animals, as they have just as much right to survive as a species as humans.

What inspired you to be a guide

I was inspired to be a guide by the natural surroundings that I was born in and grew up with, and now luckily, it’s where I work. From a young age I had a curious mind and interest in sound, smell, and colour and through this I decided I wanted to be an ambassador for the voiceless. I wanted to share what had been passed on from my father and other elders to others and of course the fact that nature is the greatest artist of all!

What’s been your favourite part of guiding at Kifaru House

Meeting and creating new friends all over the world.
