This is one of those unique places where you will experience both beautiful people and a beautiful place. We spent 3 weeks in Africa, two of which where in camps. Lemarti's was by far the best part of the trip. Boniface and Lemarti are amazing guys with larger than life personalities. Nenda zako!

Horribly overpriced, slightly pretentious camp but with comfortable accommodation. Once luxurious, it's decidedly shabby now. Tears in mosquito tents and bedding, sofa covers stained and faded. Very little game to be seen and as they have recently lost the right to drive the nearby Impala Reserve, there will be even less now. The promised masseuse was not available - they... More

Don't know where to start. The friendliest staff that you will ever meet. The environment is superb. Great location with zero pollution. For total relaxation and genuine service on a river bank, this place is takes #1 position in my books. Breath taking sceneries and wildlife. You do not need a TV here, great entertainment by the residents

From the minute we arrived, Boni and Prame, made us feel at home and part of the Samburu culture and family. Boni was hilarious, nutty and so proud of his culture. He made sure the 3 kids (age 9-11) had a ball at all times. He was very knowledgeable about the animals, flowers, plants,birds and other facts regarding the Kenyan... More

At Lemarti's Camp you are treated as part of the family from the minute you arrive. The staff is friendly, full of knowledge and more than happy to share their incredible culture.

My wife and I traveled to Lemarti's as our first stop of three on our honeymoon safari. Of the three camps, this was the only one that did not have running water or electricity, so in our minds, we labeled it primitive. Boy, were we wrong!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rites of Passage is a unique safari in the original sense of the Swahili word derived from the Arabic ‘safara’ for journey. It is a magical voyage of discovery into the Great North of Kenya, one of the last frontiers of virgin wilderness. It is also an unforgettable encounter with its enigmatic people,whose way of life and peaceful coexistence with nature has changed little over time. To walk for awhile beside proud nomads in their environment is to be reminded of the harsh beauty of untamed Africa and the simplicity of life in absolute terms – a truly magical experience. Many safaris remove the traveler from the essence of the bush. Rites of Passage takes an entirely different approach, offering you experience unparalleled in East Africa today. Lemarti’s Camp - nestled in an oasis - is run by Samburu and Maasai tribesmen. Luxury, by our definition, lies in offering an authentic experience; superbly talented guides specialized in local knowledge, delicious food and the simple elegance of the camp’s aesthetics created by Anna. Any journey with Rites of Passage begins at Lemarti's Camp. This is the heart and soul of Rites of Passage. ... more   less

“If you have a family of 4 or more they have a family tent that can accommodate all of you. I would suggest the farthest tents on either end from the "mess" for the quietest and most private experience.”

“All the tents show a different view of the river so they are all excellent.”
