Location & Directions

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Kenya

Lewa Safari Camp is situated within one of Kenya's major private conservation successes, Lewa Downs, which is found at the foot of Mt Kenya. Lewa Downs is in the Laikipia area of Northern Kenya. All of Africa’s ‘Big Five’ are present and the conservancy provides a refuge for several endangered species, including cheetah, Grevys Zebra and both black and white rhino.

When to go

The main tourist season is in January and February, when the weather is hottest and driest. At this time, the animals in the wildlife parks tend to congregate more around the watercourses, making them easier to spot.

Northern and eastern Kenya temperatures vary from highs of up to 40°C during the day to less than 20°C at night. Rainfall in this area is sparse and, when it does occur, is often in the form of violent storms. July is usually the driest month, and November the wettest.
