A Real Nature Experience Awaits at Lemarti’s Camp
Stephen is a travel writer and avid conservationist whose work appears in prestigious magazines such as Africa Geographic and Travel Africa.
Secluded within the Laikipia region of north-central Kenya, Lemarti’s Camp is a small piece of paradise nestling beneath a gigantic sycamore fig and grove of riverside palms.
The camp offers game drives in neighbouring Mpala Research Game Ranch, but most visitors shun these noisy safari activities in favour of non-mechanised nature pursuits, such as walking with a knowledgeable Maasai guide. A single solar panel allows visitors to charge phones and camera batteries, while all cooking and refrigeration is done with gas.
Washing takes place by hand and everything is sun-dried. The camp’s nightly bonfires will quite likely soon give way to more responsibly-sized campfires, as low energy Lemarti takes its final steps to becoming genuinely sustainable in every respect.
Laid back Lemarti’s Camp is a proud member of the top 48 sustainable safari operations, as selected by David Bristow and Colin Bell in their magnificent coffee table book: Africa’s Finest. This important book discerns the handful of truly sustainable safari operations from the host of green-washers and eco-pirates that pervade the African safari lodge industry. If you’d like to get hold of the book then you can order it here.
