Rating: Mid-range    

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 26,000 hectacre 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 13 ensuite tents, each within a thatched structure, inciuding 2 larger tents designed for families. All tents are comfortable and well appointed, and each bedroom has its own en-suite 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, full day guided walking trips and horse rides. This mix of activities helps you get a comprehensive insight into the environment and its wildlife. There are also chances to get involved with conservation work during your stay, such as  accompanying tracker dogs on their training and joining a discussion about current conservation and community development projects.

Lewa Safari Camp is part of the Elewana Collection of camps and lodges in Kenya and Tanzania.
