General Information

How to book

We recommend a stay of least 3 nights at Tortilis Camp, ie two full days to explore the conservancy and take advantage of walks, sundowners…

Creating a safari needs specialist consultation with local knowledge, it is not the same as booking a stay in a city hotel. If you include in your enquiry your location we can recommend a reputable upmarket tour operator close to you.

Communication in camp

Wi-Fi is accessible from most tents; a Vsat system, it is a slow connection with limited bandwidth. Mobile phone network is available near reception with limited coverage in other areas. We request guests to refrain from using mobile phones in the public areas.

Malaria

Lewa Camp can be considered malaria free.

Tipping guide

Although a long standing safari tradition, staff tips are at guest’s discretion. Tips for the lodge staff are collected at a central tip box, then distributed evenly to all staff members, so that even those behind the scenes receive acknowledgement of a job well done. A recommended amount is US$ 5-10 per guest per night. Guides are tipped separately and directly (same recommendation of US$5-10 per guest per day).

Power in camp

Lewa Safari Camp generates it own power with diesel generators which run for only 8 hours a day. It operates an invertor system which supplies the tents with power for lighting 24hrs. Client batteries can be charged in the tents and at the bar, and the gamedrive vehicles have invertors to charge camera batteries. The system cannot support hairdryers in the tents except during generator hours. Sockets are 3pin square English, so guests are recommended to bring universal plug adaptors.
