GUIDE ON LEWA WILDERNESS IN KENYA
Lewa Wilderness is one of the up-market accommodations in the 62,000-acre Lewa Conservancy, one of the privately-owned wildlife protected areas within the larger Laikipia Conservancy of Kenya. Established in 1972, the Lewa Conservancy is recognized for superb wildlife management, including the construction of an “elephant corridor” for migration. Spend part of your spectacular East African safari surrounded by the pristine beauty of the conservancy whilst staying in one of the 9 rural luxurious rooms. The 6 Hillside Rooms overlook the Eastern Marania Valley. You fall asleep to the soft sound of the night, and each morning you watch as zebras, buffalos, giraffes, elephants and other wildlife come to feed and drink. These rooms include all of the amenities you need for a premier tour of Laikipia, including private verandah, sitting area with fireplace and full en-suite bathroom. For guests who prefer a lush setting close to common areas, 3 Garden Cottages are set within the dense green, well-maintained gardens. Perfect for your family holiday in Kenya with AfricanMecca, these cottages feature two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, as well as sitting area with fireplace and bar and are also within close proximity to the main house, swimming pool, dining area and other areas. The staff at Lewa Wilderness are extremely friendly and helpful. Your safety is the highest priority, so guards are available to escort you at night to the main areas for meals, socializing and other activities. A soft knock on your door begins your day, and the aroma of freshly brewed tea and coffee begin to invigorate your senses. From your verandah, enjoy the warmth of the rising sun before preparing for some of the best wildlife viewing that you will experience during your awe-inspiring AfricanMecca travels in magical Kenya. Because Lewa Conservancy is secluded in a fenced wilderness, you will have a personalized, intimate safari experience with terrestrial, aquatic and avian fauna while your professional guide expertly navigates the valleys, escarpments, river shores and grass plains. The Big 5 are frequently seen, and the most reassuring experience for some guests is seeing the endangered white and black rhino. Return to the lodge for a full, appetizing breakfast, and then explore more of the conservancy with a Maasai-guided walk, horseback safari or simply lounge by the pool. After lunch, visit Lewa Crafts to learn about two of the projects hosted by the conservancy. A delightful cup of tea at mid-day prepares you for a late day game drive, followed by sundowners and dinner. For more adventurous guests, we recommend a flying aerial safari over Laikipia and camel and walk safari with fly camping trip. Other activities that are sure to enhance your dream vacation at Lewa Conservancy are visits to the Il Ngwesi Maasai village, Pepo Ia Tumaini HIV/AIDS orphanage and Ngare Ndare Forest and waterfalls.

Jambo Altaf, Many thanks for a brilliant holiday. Your choice of tented accommodation at the two Tsavos and Amboseli was superb, we didn't have a favourite. We would recommend AfricanMecca to anyone.
