Lewa Safari Camp

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Laikipia Plateau
Lewa Safari Camp has a stunning location within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the 65,000 acre Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. With the whole of the eastern half of the Conservancy to itself, and with strict limits on tourism numbers within the Conservancy, you can enjoy an almost private game viewing experience. Although a vast area, the Conservancy is fenced, (fencing of wildlife areas is very unusual in Kenya), specifically to protect the rhino. The game driving is outstanding with plentiful rhino, elephant, buffalo, the rare Grevy's zebra and resident predators, to a backdrop of beautiful views of snow-capped Mt. Kenya. It’s no wonder that it’s popular with celebrities, royals, conservationists, writers and photographers. Visitors to Lewa are privy to some of the most spectacular wildlife viewing that Kenya has to offer. Lewa is home to the largest concentration of Grevy’s zebra in the world, and protects over sixty Black and seventy White rhino. Beside excellent game drives a variety of activities are available that include horse and camel riding, village visits, day trips to Ngare Ndare forest, visits to the conservancy HQ and interacting with the

The accommodations at Lewa are fabulous. Each of the eleven thatch-covered tent consists of a main bedroom, an en-suite bathroom and a spacious veranda with magnificent views. In addition, there are two family units under thatch comprising an en-suite master bedroom and an en-suite twin bedroom. These rooms are joined together by a private veranda and sitting area also with stunning views over the Lewa plains.
 
Lewa Safari Camp was completely refurbished and upgraded in 2013 and offers you the perfect homely informal environment to relax and unwind, be it with a glass of your favorite tipple in front of the log fire at night or - when not out and about during the day - in the vibrant gardens filled with birds, swimming in the pool or reading a book on the veranda. And with a team of skilled cooks, and fresh ingredients brought in from the mountain highlands neighboring Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, meals are delicious. You can choose to eat separately, or join other guests, and the camp has a daily set menu.
