Set amidst 62,000 acres of sprawling savannah, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy boasts some of the most spectacular views in northern Kenya. With one of the highest wildlife densities in Kenya including 10% and 14% of the country’s black and white rhinos respectively, the Conservancy is also home to the world's single largest population of Grevy's zebras. It is also the best place to spot herds of elephants and buffalo, giraffes, lions, cheetahs, more than 400 species of birds and if lucky, a pack of wild dogs!

If you get the time to spend some time at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, you will realize that they are pioneers in this industry. The work they are doing here is by far one of the best examples of Eco-Tourism ever. The money that you spend here to have an amazing time and protect the rhinos and grevy's zebra not only... More

After visiting three countries in Africa and staying three days at Lewa, in my heart I know that Lewa is my favorite place on earth! I live near Denver, Colorado (which, by the way, is my second favorite place on earth) and my lifelong dream was to go on a safari to Africa. My dream finally came true in 2006.... More

We spent 3 packed days in Lewa and seemed to see/do everything - all except the leopard which we heard - especially at night very close at hand - but did not manage to see. But we saw lions, cheetahs, rhino, elephants, buffalo, giraffes, zebras by the thousand, impala and so much else. Wonderful private game vans for each group,... More

This conservancy is committed not only to the well being of the wildlife here but to the community as well. I met 2nd generation employees from local villages. They have built schools, provide Healthcare and work to conserve. The lodges and camps within are top notch and staying here helps fund some of these programs.

We visited Lewa for three nights during the month of July and stayed in Lewa Wilderness Lodge, a beautiful lodge, with comfortable rooms, and great scenery. The staff is amazing we had the privilege of spending our game drives with Mush who is the administrator of the Lodge and he does a wonderful job at both things. They make sure... More

Lewa is the most enchanting and exhilarating place I have ever seen! Not only is the conservancy itself wonderful, but even more so the people there are the hardest workers, who care so very dearly about what they do. They strive to educated the neighboring communities about the importance of conservation by supporting a multitude of community development programs. The... More

We completed the Lewa Half Marathon which goes through the actual conservancy. It was one of the most exhilarating experiences ever! Gazelles running across the dirt track in front of you and rhinos running alongside 50m away! The vastness of the landscape is breathtaking especially when you can't see the next person!!! It is the home of the black rhino... More

Wonderful camp in the ever present shadow of Mt. Kenya. The camp is high (5500') and the temperature pleasant. The terrain is hilly with vast open plains. Many animals especially rhinos of course. They have a reservoir watering hole that attracts uncountable numbers of animals. We also visited their security center and viewed an anti-poaching team with their blood hound.... More

Visited here at the January, the feeling while being on this safari is awesome. Our guide was excellent. The whole area is very much beautiful as being a nature & wildlife lover. I will return to this place again because it has a lot to offer. :)
