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. Lewa conservancy re-invests all the profits generated from tourism (including profits from Lewa Safari Camp) into its core programmes. When you visit Lewa, as well as enjoying outstanding game viewing in an elegant setting, you will also be helping thousands of people from different backgrounds and cultures to improve their lives, and give their children a future, at the same time as ensuring Africa's wildlife has a stable home.

ROOM AMENITIES: Each tent is alluringly decorated and has electric lights, ensuite bathrooms, with flush toilets, hot and cold running water for the basin and shower, and a private verandah.ROOM DCOR: Recently, the Conservancy embarked on mission to renovate the tents to bring in a more revolutionary and exotic design, which allows for panoramic views from your bed, a permanent bathroom made from attractive local materials and a large verandah. The new tan tents bled in fantastically with the surroundings and are thatched with reed from the Lewa swamp.
