Overview

Set amidst 62,000 acres of sprawling savannah, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy boasts some of the most spectacular views in northern Kenya. With one of the highest wildlife densities in Kenya including 10% and 14% of the country’s black and white rhinos respectively, the Conservancy is also home to the world's single largest population of Grevy's zebras. It is also the best place to spot herds of elephants and buffalo, giraffes, lions, cheetahs, more than 400 species of birds and if lucky, a pack of wild dogs!

We traveled with the guides from origin safari. They knew exactly where to take us to see the wildlife and birds. The Lewa is absolutely beautiful. I am pleased that they have designated this much land for the amazing wildlife of Africa.
