Lewa Wildlife Conservancy – Accommodation & Prices

In this article, we look at different accommodations available when you visit Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a 62,000-acre wildlife conservancy and UNESCO World Heritage Site in Kenya’s Meru County. Formerly a cattle ranch, it began to support endangered black rhinos in the 1980s and was officially established as a wildlife sanctuary in 1995. From protecting rhinos, Lewa’s work has expanded to the conservation of many other species, as well as catalysing community-centric conservation across northern Kenya and beyond.

There are 10 different accommodation options across the Lewa/Borana landscape. So whether you want to focus on luxury, exclusivity, adventure, fine food, wildlife or culture, you are sure to find something that suits you. While each lodge offers something different, all of them promise an unforgettable safari experience. The Conservancy offers a range of accommodation options to suit different budgets and preferences.

List Of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy Accommodation Options

Featuring luxury tented bedrooms with amazing views, Lewa Safari Camp offers access to 65,000 acres of private protected wilderness. One of the most popular in the conservancy, the camp has excellent food and a pool with views surrounded by the bush home to many birds, such as the weaver birds that chatter in the trees behind the veranda.

There are eleven rooms available, all equipped with verandas offering views that stretch far beyond the conservancy borders. The tents are small, but luxurious each with a small veranda, bathroom and comfortable beds. All the profits and fees raised by the camp are reinvested into the conservancy.

Nestled into sloping hills, Lewa Wilderness is one of Kenya’s original safari lodges. With expansive views of the conservancy, it provides both a spacious and personal experience. Lewa Wilderness goes beyond the average game drive, with exceptional wilderness viewing opportunities. From traditional game viewing drives (they’ve recently converted one of our Landcruisers to be 100% electric) to guided walks and scenic flights in their retro plane, to unforgettable horse riding safaris.

Just nine exclusive rooms dot the Lewa Wilderness landscape. Six cottages are tucked into the hillside overlooking the sprawling Eastern Marania Valley, plus a further three garden cottages that are cosy yet expansive are set amongst the beautiful lawn. Much of the money from stays here goes to support the conservancy and help them continue protecting Kenya’s wildlife.
