The Lewa Conservancy is Big Five territory. But it’s not just a place to tick animals off your safari bucket list.
This undulating conservancy covers 93,000 acres on which sits a collection of superb safari camps and lodges. Part of the Northern Rangelands Trust a stay on Lewa provides a fascinating insight into the life of a modern conservancy, working to preserve wildlife and natural habitats while also supporting local communities.
Exciting game drives will almost certainly see you encounter many of Lewa’s black rhino but also elephant, Grevy’s zebra, ostrich, giraffe and many more. Not forgetting the mighty beasts, lion, leopard and cheetah can also all be found.
But Lewa is not just about game drives and each day on the conservancy can offer a new experience: cantering alongside a dazzle of zebra on horse-back, exploring the treetops and waterfalls of the Ngare Ndare forest or a gentle morning walk which concludes with a sumptuous bush breakfast.
