Lemarti's Camp
Koija Community Land, Laikipia, Northern Kenya

Lemarti's Camp


What is unique about staying at Lemarti’s Camp is experiencing the “Rites of Passage” safari that Lemarti has crafted. It is an experience unparalleled in East Africa today. No safari vehicles or armed guards here. Guests quite literally walk into the wilderness with Samburu warriors armed only with their traditional weapons, their sharp senses and generations of knowledge. These gentle tribesmen will talk with you about their ways, connect you with amazing wildlife and take you into a moment in time that is both authentic and other worldly.

Game viewing, guided walks, tracking big game on foot, ornithological treats, camel trekking, high altitude running, and authentic cultural experiences that are unparalleled in Africa today, all await. Be included in the community of Koija, visit the women's groups, get an invitation to a local homestead, harvest honey with the elders on the river banks and attend secret ceremonies in the area.


Lemartis’ Camp is an unforgettable safari hideaway in Kenya’s breathtaking Northern Laikipia Plateau, one of the last frontiers of virgin wilderness and home to the majestic Samburu people.  The twist here is that while the local Samburu community owns the land, the camp itself was built and run by local Samburu guide, Loyapan Lemarti and his Kenyan-based fashion designer wife, Anna Trzebinski.  This unlikely duo met on safari – he was her guide – and were later married.  Their dream camp emerged, nestled in an oasis in a spectacular setting beneath a grove of palms and centenary fig trees.  5 stylish safari tents with en suite bathrooms open to the skies.
