Previously a cattle ranch, the owners at that time dedicated all their land to the conversation of the local wildlife, particularly rhino. In 2009, Lewa Safari Camp was born, and became the excellent, eco-friendly camp we know today. It is a fantastic camp to stay at if you enjoy a bit of luxury and privacy, with first rate guiding.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Located in the centre of Kenya in the Lewa Conservancy.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The entire property is fenced, making it ideal for families with younger children. The main areas of the camp have a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, with guests having the options of chilling out on the sofas, going for a dip in the pool, or having a drink at the bar. Table tennis in the outdoor lounge area is great fun for when guests are in between game drives! At dinner time, guests are seated at their own individual tables, giving them some privacy whilst also enabling them to communicate with their fellow guests should they wish.
Lewa Safari Camp boasts eleven en-suite safari tents, two of which are family suites. Each tent is private, with spectacular views. The rooms can either be laid out as doubles, twins, or triples for children under the age of 16. All tents are thatched roofed and include a bed, a writing desk, en-suite facilities and a spacious veranda. They have a very homely feel and Lewa Safari Camp has achieved the perfect balance between authenticity and high-quality accommodation and service!
Whether you are being served your breakfast by the pool in the outdoor lounge area, a picnic in the plains themselves, or afternoon tea, you can rest assured that the food, made with fresh ingredients, will be delicious! The camp is also very happy to cater for special dietary requirements, such as gluten free or vegan.
There is no lack of activities at Lewa Safari Camp. Game viewing here is particularly good! However, guests also have the option to go on guided walks, including visiting the beautiful Ngare Ndare Forest. As well as this, guests may also make use of the swimming pool and sunloungers, spa treatments, and both camel- and horse riding that are offered at the camp. It is also possible to go on cultural visits to local villages.
All of the guides at Lewa Safari are highly skilled, with some having worked within the Conservancy for over fifteen years. And the guides not only have their Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association certification, but they are also trained directly from the Conservancy itself to ensure they meet the ‘Lewa Standard’.
