Lewa Safari Camp - High End

Lewa Safari Camp has a stunning location within Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, with outstanding game viewing, and spectacular views to Mt. Kenya to the south and arid lowlands to the north. Each tent has a thatched roof, verandah and full en suite bathroom, very much in the 'Lewa' style. The central areas have exquisite gardens with a large sunny verandah and swimming pool to enjoy during the day, and cosy log fires in the lounge and dining room for the more chilly evenings.

The camp is based within the private 65,000 acre wildlife conservancy of the Lewa Wilderness Trust. The conservancy is home to about 10 percent of Kenya's black rhino population, and the single largest population of Grevy's zebra in the world.
