Found in the north west corner of the Lewa Wilderness Trust's 65,000 acre private conservancy, Lewa Safari Camp owns a fantastic location and affords excellent game viewing, holding the largest population of Grevy's zebra and an estimated 10 percent of the world's black rhinos. Guests can look out upon excellent views of Mt. Kenya and enjoy endless vistas of sweeping plains. Conservation is of great importance in the area, with a rhino sanctuary and some of the profits made from the camp placed back into the local community and conservation efforts.
The 12 well-appointed tents are kept cool under thatch roofs and are elevated on stone platforms. Boasting small verandas the tents offer en suite bathrooms, cosy log fires and provide a choice of twin or double beds.
The camp's main area possesses a dining area and lounge, with 2 fireplaces, most welcome in the cooler winter months. Guests should also expect a small curio shop and massages on request. For staying cool in the midday sun guests can always relax in the camp's inviting pool. Game viewing in the area is particularly rich, with the large number of prey game acting as a strong attraction for predators such as lion and leopard.
