Lewa Wildlife Conservancy 

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a 55,000 acre conservancy which is home to a diverse array of wildlife set in some of Kenya's most spectacular scenery. The snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya dominate the views to the south, while to the north are breath-taking vistas of Samburu. The private conservancy is home to over 400 species of birdlife and 60 species of mammal including good numbers of lion, cheetah, hyena, leopard, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, antelope, a large population of the increasingly rare white and black rhino and is sometimes visited by packs of the elusive wild dog.

The private reserve has a wide variety of rare species and good numbers of other animals including hyena, eland, kudu, oryx, reticulated giraffe, ostrich, Coke’s Hartebeest and the reserve is sometimes visited by packs of the elusive and highly endangered wild dog.

In addition to these more obvious attractions, you will be fascinated to learn how the conservation and wildlife protection has been pioneered on the reserve and throughout other parts of Kenya.  They have a thriving rhino re-introduction project with numbers thus far swelling to around 120 black and white rhino, along with the world’s largest population of the endangered Grevy’s Zebra.

The conservancy works closely with the nearby Living With Lions project set up to monitor and track the lion prides in the area and they also have an animal orphanage that co-operates with Daphne Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi, treating animals before they are released back into the wild.  The owners of the reserve have built excellent relationships with Samburu and other local tribe’s people, encouraging communities to turn from poaching to wildlife conservation and visits to local villages can be arranged easily from camp.
