      Lewa Safari Camp

      A Favorite with Visitors for 500,000 Years.

      Lewa Safari Camp is based within the private 65,000-acre wildlife conservancy of the Lewa Wilderness Trust in the Laikipia region. The conservancy is home to about 10 percent of Kenya's black rhino population, and the single largest population of Grevy's zebra in the world. Lewa re-invests all the profits generated from tourism (including profits from Lewa Safari Camp) into its core programs. Each of the 12 tents has a thatched roof, verandah and full en-suite bathroom. The central areas have exquisite gardens with a large sunny verandah and swimming pool to enjoy during the day, and cozy log fires in the lounge and dining room for the more chilly evenings. Activities include escorted game viewing drives in a four-wheel-drive vehicle, escorted horseback rides amongst the plains animals, and local walks. You can learn to read animal spoor and approach game on foot for exciting pictures. The four-wheel-drive safari vehicles are open-sided with an overhead canvas awning to provide shade. There is a prehistoric site on the ranch where rough-hewn Acheulian hand axes can be found scattered on the ground, perhaps a half million years old. There is also a picturesque waterfall on the property, where you can ramble among the rocks or enjoy a relaxing afternoon reading or bird watching. For guests interested in cultural encounters, there are two optional activities to consider. The conservancy borders the Samburu community conservancies of Tassia and Il Ngwesi in the arid lowlands of the north, and many of the staff at Lewa Safari Camp come from this area. Lewa Safari Camp offers visits to neighboring local Samburu homesteads. Additionally, guests who are making donations to the Lewa Education Program can visit schools during term time.

        Off-Road Game Viewing

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
