Lewa Wilderness, also situated on the 65,000 acre Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a beautiful colonial home, with cottages situated in tropical gardens overlooking a rocky valley and river, excellent for leopard sightings. Lewa is home to three extremely endangered species, the rhino, Grevy’s zebra and sitatunga.
The thatched cottages are comfortable and cosy with their own verandahs – the food is wholesome ranch stule food organically grown. Activities include day and night game drives, camel walks, game viewing on horseback, bush walks, prehistoric sites, cultural visits with local communities, farm and craft tours, swimming, tennis and jogging for those more active, although days spent lounging on the comfortable sofas and overlooking the river are also a must.Show Less
