Elewana Lewa Safari Camp
Lewa Safari Camp is located in the north west of the privately owned 65,000 acre Lewa Downs Wildlife Conservancy in northern Kenya. The camp is situated against the dramatic backdrop of the snow-covered massif of Mount Kenya and with the magnificent Northern Frontier District stretching out to the North. Lewa is an outstanding tourist destination, offering spectacular scenery, superb game viewing and exciting activities for the discerning traveller. The conservancy, formerly a working cattle ranch has been in the Craig family since 1924. Three generations of the family continue to be involved in daily operations on Lewa and the conservancy is known for being a pioneer in wildlife preservation. Due to its natural beauty and biodiversity, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and the Ngare Ndare forest were recognised as part of the UNESCO Mount Kenya World Heritage Site in 2013.
Accommodation & Facilities
The accommodation is in 13 comfortable en-suite tents each with hot and cold running water and flush loos. Two of these are two bedroomed family tents with interconnecting double and twin bedrooms. The main area of the camp consists of a thatched dining room, bar a large sitting room with an open fire place and a swimming pool.
Wildlife & Activities
The density of wildlife here is as high anywhere in Africa, and it is possible to see all of Africa’s Big Five on Lewa. The conservancy also provides a refuge for several endangered species including black and white rhino and Grevy’s zebra. During a stay at Lewa Safari Camp guests may join expert guides on game drives, bush walks and sundowners. Horse riding and camel riding are also offered at extra cost as are massages.
