Lewa Safari Camp has a stunning location within Lewa wildlife / rhino conservancy with views to Mount Kenya. Each of Lewa Safari Camp’s en-suite tented rooms has a thatched roof with a verandah. The central areas combine a pool, gardens and dining rooms, and cosy log-fires make the sometimes chilly evenings comfortable and intimate.
Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is 65,000 acres of wildlife conservation area, and is home to 10% of Kenya’s rhino population – the pioneering work here with this endangered species is easy to see, as well as their huge population of the endangered Grevy’s zebra. All profits from Lewa are reinvested into Lewa’s core conservation projects, of which there are many.
Activities include game drives, bush walks, swimming, bush breakfasts, sundowners, horse riding, archeological site visits, educational talks on history and day to day operating of the conservancy, and a lovely gift shop.
Lewa was founded in 1995 and is a not for profit organization, which through the management of endangered species, community conservation and education programmes, as well as much more, still succeeds in being a leader in the preservation of Kenya’s wildlife and people.Show Less
