If you are looking for a unique experience or a journey down the road less traveled, you will definitely want to take a trip to northern Kenya to visit the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. This is not your traditional African safari; the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy stands alone with its sights and accommodations.
Originally, the conservancy was a cattle ranch until the late 1970s, but when endangerment of the animals became a concern, steps were taken to protect them. The Black Rhinos are an example of a species that desperately needed the Lewa Conservancy to implement measures to protect them from poaching. Currently, the conservancy raises funds to promote awareness and generally protect the natural resources in Kenya. A large portion of these funds come from tourism, so the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy encourages guests to visit.
A visit to the conservancy will allow you the opportunity to see a diverse mix of wildlife. Along with the black rhinos, the cheetahs and giraffes are also guest favorites. Both day and night game watches are available to visitors. These popular adventures put you in an open four-wheel drive vehicle where knowledgeable guides will point out the flora and fauna of the area. Another experience available to guests is the bush walk, where guests can discover the lush landscape on foot with guides. This is an up-close and personal encounter with the conservancy which is led by guides.
Along with the adventures of the game watches and bush walk, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy also has modern accommodations to make guests overall stay very pleasant. There are spa treatments, massages, local cuisine and delicious cocktails available to all guests.
As you can see, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is in a class all its own when it comes to an African wildlife adventure. Any trip to the conservancy will be filled with beautiful landscapes, majestic animals and memories that will last a lifetime.
