Day 1


Transfer from your hotel to Wilson Airport for the scheduled flight to Lewa Conservancy. A very warm welcome awaits you at the home of Will and Emma Craig. For 40 years guests have been coming to this remarkable region. Those four decades have seen that passion passed down through the Craig family who proudly continue to run Lewa Wilderness today. Lewa Wilderness offers ten beautifully decorated cottages, all with sitting rooms, open fires and ensuites. Here, you will find wildlife in bountiful numbers, a direct result of pioneering conservation methods which are second to none. (L)(D)

There is a very good chance of seeing all of the Big Five and Lewa is one of the only game parks where visitors are almost guaranteed to see the endangered black and white rhinos while on safari. Lewa Wilderness offers a diverse range of activities, from game drives with expert guides, walking with Masai, a camel safari, treetop canopy walk and, visiting a local Masai Village to a flight in East Africa’s only open cockpit biplane (additional cost) and after a day exploring a dip in the salt-water infinity pool will refresh your senses.
