Originally built in the 1980s for the rhino conservancy manager to live in, this charming property has been extensively renovated and is today the Lewa Conservancy flagship – a very comfortable lodge with excellent food and unsurpassed gameviewing. The 13 ensuite guest tents (two of which are specially designed for families) are elegantly furnished, with low thatched roofs and spacious verandas to make the most of surrounding views. The family tents have two separate sleeping areas linked by a private veranda and sitting area.
At Lewa Safari Camp, you can choose to dine privately or with other guests. Meals are created by a team of skilled chefs, out of ingredients sourced from the surrounding highlands. As with any quality safari camp, you can also opt for breakfast in the bush and to sip a gin and tonic at sunset – the traditional way to end a game drive.
During the heat of the day, there is a swimming pool with bar service, sunbeds, a shaded lounge area and lush green gardens that invite a stroll. Lewa Safari Camp also offers a range of relaxing spa treatments from massages to manicures and pedicures.
Guests can enjoy very exclusive gameviewing by open 4WD vehicle on the almost-private 93,000-acre Conservancy, which is home to the largest concentration of Grevy’s Zebra in the world, diverse birdlife and over 130 black and white rhino. Walks are also available to appreciate Kenya’s smaller creatures, as are cultural visits to local Samburu homesteads known as ‘manyattas’.
Lewa Safari Camp can be considered malaria-free.
