The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (also known as Lewa Downs) is located in northern Kenya. It was formed in 1995. It is a wildlife sanctuary incorporating the Ngare Ndare Forest. The Conservancy is home to a wide variety of wildlife including the rare and endangered black rhinos, Grevy’s zebras and sitatungas.
It also includes the big five (lion, leopards, elephants, rhinos and Cape buffaloes). Lewa holds over 12% of Kenya’s eastern black rhinoceros population and the largest single population of Grevy’s zebras in the world (approximately 350 individuals).
The Conservancy is also home to the Northern Rangelands Trust, an innovative partnership with a number of communities to the north who have given land for the preservation of wildlife. Lewa has its own education program that helps develop schools and students. Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is located in Meru County, south of Isiolo town but north of Mount Kenya.
Traveller numbers are carefully controlled and the survival of species like rhino, wild dog and Grevy’s zebra is paramount – huge amounts of money and security is poured into their safekeeping. This is truly a place where you can feel your safari dollar goes straight back to the wildlife.
Add in unusual activities like scaling Mount Kenya, camel trekking, visits to chimpanzee sanctuaries and flips in a vintage open cockpit biplane, and Laikipia and Lewa are made for adventurous travelers.
Once home to massive livestock ranches, Laikipia and the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy are now Kenya’s premier places to see northern white rhino and black rhino, thanks in part to those same ranchers converting much of their land into successful conservation projects.
This is also a great place to learn more about chimpanzees, which find refuge and shelter at the Sweetwaters Sanctuary in Ol Pejeta. Lewa Laikipia has a decent variety of accommodation options, ranging from luxury hotels to low budget hotels.
