LEWA WILDERNESS | LEWA CONSERVANCY
Lewa Wilderness is one of Kenya’s oldest private safari experiences. For forty years guests have been coming to this remarkable region to be part of an adventure like no other. Those four decades have seen that passion passed down through the Craig family who proudly continue to run Lewa Wilderness today.
Lewa Wilderness is one of the original family homes and is still home to Will and Emma Craig. Guests can relax by the fire in the cozy sitting room and share meals around a long banquet table in the open-air dining room. Natural springs, home-raised livestock, and a 5-acre organic garden are transformed by skilled chefs into incredible, healthy and delicious food.
There are ten comfortable thatched cottages with spacious en suite bathrooms, fireplaces in the sitting areas and verandahs.
Activities to take part in while staying at Lewa Wilderness include game drives, game walks, go on a camel safari, horseback riding, visit the nearby Ngare Ndare Forest and waterfall and fly in a chartered plane over forests, herds of game and treetops. 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.
MARA PLAINS CAMP | OLARE MOTOROGI CONSERVANCY
Mara Plains Camp is a one-of-a-kind, seven tent camp located in the private 35,000-acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy, on the northern boundary of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. This intimate tented camp blends the finest wildlife viewing with outstanding hospitality and guiding. No other camp offers the extensive traversing area of Mara Plains Camp, with access to a total of 100,000 acres of private conservancy land as well as the world-renowned Masai Mara, home to the Great Migration. Olare Motorogi Conservancy has an incredible density of big cats and only one guest bed per 350 acres, leaving the land unadulterated for the wildlife to roam and thrive. By day and night, the camp is a sanctuary for resident species, including many of the Maasai Mara’s 300 bird species. After dark, larger mammals frequent the camp and Maasai warriors escort guests to and from their rooms. Hippos snorting and leopards barking often provide the night’s chorus. The camp itself has only seven tents, each with deep canvas canopied ceilings, rough-hewn wood floors and accents of East Africa’s rich safari history. Each guest tent comes with Swarovski binoculars and a professional Canon camera and lenses.
