Lewa Safari Camp

4

This rustic camp is one of just a handful of camps in the exclusive Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.

This safari camp is one of a kind. Located in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it benefits from the active conservation efforts of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. There are currently 137 black and white rhino, which makes for superb game viewing, and the conservancy also has the largest concentration of Grévy’s zebra in the world. Owned by the local community, Lewa Safari Camp’s profits are directly reinvested into conservation and community efforts – this means your stay here will help to continue this vital work and protect some of Africa’s most vulnerable wildlife.

Prepare for a near-private safari experience – the outstanding feature of this camp is that the strict tourism limits means you rarely have to share viewing areas with other vehicles. You can even meet the Head of the Anti-Poaching Unit and learn about how they look after the area and its inhabitants (at extra cost). The conservancy covers 65,000 acres; it’s a vast wilderness with habitats that include pristine forests, grasslands and woodlands with views of Mount Kenya.

Within the camp, there is everything you might need for a comfortable stay. Rise early for a bush breakfast and game drive, perhaps viewing the same wildlife that Duke and Duchess of Cambridge might have seen on their visit when they famously got engaged in Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in 2010. Relax by the log fire in the lounge and indulge with home-made cakes at afternoon tea before returning to your large, thatched tent, designed with simple rusticity and an emphasis on the abundant space. Groups are well catered for with two family tents which each sleep up to five people.
