Situated in the northwest of the 62,000 acre Lewa Wildlife Conservancy on the northern slopes of Mt. Kenya, Lewa Safari Camp is a luxury tented camp personally hosted by Sean and Judy-Anne Hartley, who live on site and are happy to share their broad knowledge of the area.

Property Details

Lewa Safari Camp comprises just eleven large tented suites, all of which can be laid out as double tents or triple tents. Each thatch-covered tent consists of a main bedroom with en suite bathrooms that include flush toilets and showers with hot and cold running water. Gracious and luxurious, the tents of Lewa Safari Camp are specifically designed to give guests the feeling of sleeping in a large safari tent while enjoying all the amenities of a permanent lodge. The two onsite Family Tents are ideal for families traveling together, with an en-suite master bedroom and twin room adjoined by private verandahs overlooking the Lewa plains. No matter the accommodations, all of the custom designed permanent tents are widely spaced around the camp area, providing privacy and tranquility for all guests.

The main building of Lewa Safari Camp was originally the headquarters of the Ngare Serigoi rhino sanctuary. When the headquarters were moved, the building was adapted to be the new dining room and bar for the camp. Here, guests will find fresh food in abundance, most of which is locally from Maasai farmers. Most meals are taken at the main building, but breakfast is often served al fresco by the refreshing salt-water swimming pool.

While Lewa Safari Camp is underpinned by a glamorous magnetism, it is driven by a serious mission to conserve and protect the surrounding Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, a globally recognized rhino conservation habitat. Guests of Lew Safari Camp therefore have a unique opportunity to set out on day and night game drives and bush walks in the company of some of the best guides in the country. It is not unlikely to see the Big Five in one afternoon here. Alternatively, guests can choose to visit prehistoric sites and Maasai bomas to discover the ancient and modern culture of the local inhabitants. Special attention has been paid to the upkeep of the grounds, which support a variety of indigenous flora, attracting a wide range of local bird and wildlife.
