Lewa Wildlife Conservancy
Located on the northern foothills of Mount Kenya, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the only privately owned conservation area that is managed and run by Kenyan people.
Lewa’s cutting-edge conservancy projects, such as the ‘Elephant Corridor’, serve to make it a safe refuge for threatened migrating pachyderms, including the critically endangered black rhino.
This pioneering sanctuary for endangered species encompassing some 62,000 acres of diverse and sprawling savannah, offers unfettered access to some of the most spectacular and truly beautiful landscapes in northern Kenya. It boasts one of the highest wildlife densities in Kenya, providing iconic sightings of elephant herds, Cape buffalo, lion, leopard, cheetah, the reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, Beisa oryx, gerenuk and the Grevy’s zebra, as well as many exotic species of birds.
Activities available at Lewa range from traditional day and night game drives, guided bush walks, scenic flights in bi-plane or helicopter, camel and horseback safaris, fishing trips and unforgettable Maasai village visits.
A truly memorable wildlife haven with the jagged figure of Mount Kenya looming in the background, Lewa offers an unparalleled, intimate, conservation-focused African safari experience.
