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.
A 40 minute drive from the airstrip. There are daily scheduled Air Kenya and Safari Link flights from Nairobi and private charters from anywhere.
Day and evening game drives, horse riding, guided bush walks, camel rides, bush breakfasts and picnics.
Read what our previous clients thought of Lewa Safari Camp
Coming from Karen Blixen, we had high expectations and at face value, Lewa Sanctuary were poised to meet it - rooms were nice (with 24hr hot water and wifi), excellent lunch and dinner, nicer pool plus a nice lounge to relax in the evenings.
The main difference is the people - we just felt we had a better connection with the staff in Karen Blixen and interactions were less robotic with…
Lewa was very special & surprisingly abundant with game. A very fresh (we have visited Samburu & Masai Mara before) & new experience. Great lodge with brilliant staff & excellent guide in Daniel.
Only one small negative was the swimming pool was out of order. Having said that we would stay here again
