More Kenya National Parks - Lewa Wildlife Conservancy – Kenya Situated in northern Kenya, Lewa started as a cattle ranch for the Craig/Douglas family in 1924. In1983 David and Delia Craig gave 5,000 acres of their ranch over to become the Ngare Sergoi Rhino Sanctuary in a partnership with Anna Merz. The programme was so successful that in 1995 the Craig family gave their entire ranch over to conservation and formed the non-Profit Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Situated in the foothills of Mount Kenya, Lewa is today a 62,000 acre private reserve with terrain consisting of forest, savannah grasslands, swamps and semi-desert. The perimeter is almost entirely fenced, for security, but gaps are left in the fences to allow for the movement of the animals. Thanks to the conservation efforts, Lewa is home to the highest concentration of rhino in East Africa. Lewa also protects the endangered Grey’s zebra and the rare Sitatunga (swamp dwelling antelope). Otherwildlife include lion, leopard, elephant, cheetahs and over 440 species of birds. The range of activities on Lewa is vast with everything from game walks, day and night drives, bush picnics, horseback riding, camel treks and flights in a biplane on offer.
