Lewa Safari Camp

Laikipia Samburu & the North

Rating: Mid-range    Price from: £215-£370 pp full board

Lewa Safari Camp overview

Lewa Safari Camp has a stunning location within the wildlife / rhino conservancy, with outstanding game viewing and views of Mount Kenya to the south and the arid lowlands to the north. The central areas have cool gardens with a sunny veranda and swimming pool for guests to enjoy during the day and cosy log fires in the lounge and dining room on chilly evenings. 

The camp is based within the 65,000 acre wildlife conservancy of the Lewa Wilderness Trust. The conservancy is home to about 10% of Kenya's black rhinos and the single largest population of Grevy's zebra in the world. Lewa reinvests all the profits generated from tourism into its core programmes, helping the local community and wildlife.

Lewa Safari Camp has 12 ensuite tents, each within a thatched structure, accommodating up to 27 guests at a time. The tents are comfortable and well appointed with a full ensuite bathroom. They are also nicely spaced for a reasonable amount of privacy and each has a private veranda.

The list of activities you can enjoy here is very extensive. There are day and night game drives, nature walks and horse rides. However it is the choice of conservation/community-orientated activities which makes Lewa Safari Camp unique. These include days out with Grevy zebra researchers, accompanying tracker dogs on their training, visiting Ngare Ndare Forest Reserve to find Colobus monkeys and learn about flora and fauna and visits to water schemes and other community development projects.
