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.

Laikipia Game Sanctuary – Kenya
The Laikipia region is located to the north-west of Mount Kenya, in the Rift Valley province and has been formed from the conglomeration of private and communal landowners. It is in the central highlands and has wide range of landscapes from open grasslands dotted with kopjes, to basalt hills and dense cedar forests. Due to conservation efforts by the local landowners, the area has become a sanctuary for game and is home to come of Kenya’s most endangered animals such as Black Rhino, Grevy’s zebra and reticulated giraffe.On the whole the game here is very plentiful and probably second only to the Mara in terms of density. The lodges in this area are mostly at the higher end and make the most of not being restricted by National Park rules to offer a wide variety of activities, such as camel safaris, horse riding and mountain biking.For more detail information and booking contact Greeb Hills Ecotours: +250 788219495 or email@example.com
Meru National Park – Kenya
Meru is located in central Kenya, 320 km north-east of Nairobi and is one of the lesser visited parks in Kenya. Terrain is riverine forest, savannahs with long grass and lush swamps. The wildlife is present
but due to a high rainfall vegetation is dense, so it’s harder to spot than in other parks/reserves.Thepark has diverse eco-systems, the western half gets the majority of the rainfall, but the eastern half is generally dry and can be extremely hot. This is a specialist park for those that want to taste real Africa and are willing to get that from the stunning scenery and feel rather than on animals or culture alone.For more detail information and booking contact Greeb Hills Ecotours: +250 788219495 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Samburu National Reserve – Kenya
The three reserves Samburu, Buffalo Springs and Shaba all share a life blood with is the Ewaso Nyiro River. This great water course runs through this desert landscape bringing some stunning views and great concentration of animals around it. The animals include some rare species and all the cats that you can see in the better known parks such as the Mara. Samburu is also home to the Samburu people who provide a glamorous backdrop to an already beautiful area.
The huge wide open spaces mean thathe human element can be a problem and so there has been a recent move to shift high end lodges out of the park to the fringe regions.
