Sprawling over the Laikipia plains, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a prolific wildlife conservancy that is popular with celebrities, conservationists, writers and photographers. Lewa found recent media attention with stories of a Royal romance and the fairytale engagement that followed.
Visitors to Lewa are privy to some of the most spectacular wildlife viewing that Kenya has to offer: lion, leopard and jackal thrive on the rich diversity of prey that inhabits the area. The Wildlife Conservancy is home to the largest concentration of Grevy’s zebra in the world, and its range of habitats attracts diverse birdlife and hosts over 130 Black and White rhino.

Featuring large tented bedrooms with verandahs and full en-suite bathrooms, Lewa Safari camp offers authentic comfort for its visitors; cozy log fires in the sitting room are perfect for relaxing after a day in the Conservancy. This unique and exclusive retreat offers privileged access to 65,000 acres of private protected wilderness.
Underpinning the glamorous magnetism of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a serious mission: a pioneering and pragmatic approach to conservation, founded in the 1970’s, that has developed into a thriving and globally recognised rhino conservation habitat.
Lewa Wildlife Conservancy
Lewa Safari Camp is the only tourist facility within the Conservancy that is owned by the Conservancy. The Lewa board subcontracted the management of the camp to Liz & Stefano Cheli, in 2009. Profits and conservancy fees generated by the camp are reinvested directly into the conservation and community efforts of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.
The Elewana Collection
Lewa Safari Camp became a member of the Elewana Collection in 2015. A collection of 14 boutique safari and beach properties in some of the most iconic locations in Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar. Together with Liz & Stefano, Elewana’s priority is to keep Lewa Safari Camp the flagship of the Conservancy. Refurbishment and training have paid off, transforming the camp into an elegant comfortable jewel, and upgrading the back of house operations to a level of ecological standard worthy of one of the most important wildlife conservancies in the world.
