The Lewa Safari Camp is located inside the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy made famous by conservationist and author Anna Mertz. Anna Merz ranks as one of the world’s foremost champions of the black rhino. This is not only in her public profile but also in her hands-on approach which has contributed enormously to the survival of Kenya’s black rhino. Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a wilderness area of pristine beauty and remoteness far away from the madding crowds. Lewa Safari Camp’s permanent tented accommodations are discrete and comfortable with twin beds and en suite bathrooms, placed on raised platforms and stonewalls of local lava rock. There are two specially enlarged family and honeymoon suite tents. These along with the main buildings are thatched with a beautiful woven papyrus that was introduced to the area from Scotland in the 1920’s. There is a saltwater swimming overlooking the rolling hills and plains. The camp’s excellent chefs produce delicious, freshly cooked home meals, with emphasis on locally available ingredients. Adjoining the dining area is a warm and cozy lounge, and in the evening guests sit around a campfire under the stars. Activities at Lewa Tented Camp include day and night game drives in search of rhino and other wildlife, horseback riding, camel riding, walks, hikes, and cultural interaction with the II’Nguesi, Ndorobo and Samburu peoples. A few days at Lewa Downs is a unique combination of hospitality, spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife.
