Lewa Safari Camp

Lewa Conservancy, Kenya

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

This lodge is located on the Lewa Conservancy which is THE pioneering conservancy from its cattle ranching history. Lewa has incredible game concentrations especially rhino and the unique Northern species. The fact that Lewa is fenced and highly managed does detract slightly from the wilderness feel, however the flip side to this is great wildlife sitings are almost guaranteed. 

Lewa Safari Camp is the most affordable property on the concession. A little bigger than ideal but you can consistently expect comfortable rooms, good guides and delicious food. Our clients love it.   

Lewa Safari Camp is situated in the far western side of the 65,000 acre Lewa Conservancy. Lewa has dramatic views to the south of snow capped Mt. Kenya, and to the north down to the arid lands of Tassia and Il Ngwesi. It has many diverse habitats from pristine forest, fertile grasslands, extensive springs and acacia woodland.
