Situated near the base of Mt Kenya, Lewa Wilderness is one of Kenya's oldest and most private safari ventures. The Craig family has passed down from one generation to the next a distinct passion for wildlife, conservation and tourism. The lodge is just nine exclusive rooms: six cottages tucked into the hillside overlooking Lewa' s Eastern Marania Valley, plus three garden cottages set amidst the beautiful green lawns. Activities on offer include game drives, guided walks, scenic flights, horseback riding, camel riding and much more.

I have been to Kenya several times before and Lewa Wilderness was one of the best experiences I have had. The people, the safaris, the dining, the room could not have been better. I will return to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and I will stay at Lewa Wilderness again!

My wife and I had invited our 5 children, their spouses and 8 grand children on what we hoped would be a experience for life on a Safari in Kenya. Ultimate Travel in London recommend Lewa and a few other places, where we could have the whole camp for ourselves. (We love our 8

Hi Linda, I'm sorry it's taken a bit of time to get back to you, we have only just opened for the season. To be honest, whatever time of year you come you should expect warm days and cool nights. We are at an altitude of 1,700m/5,500ft which means that it cools down very quickly when the sun goes down. I would bring layers with you, so that on morning and evening game drives you can add layers and keep nice and warm. It can get quite chilly, especially in the back of the vehicles when you are on drives. The days are warm and so summer clothes are perfect! I hope that helps and we look forward to seeing you in August. Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any other questions. All the best, Abbie
