Lewa Wildlife Conservancy
The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy was founded in 1995 and is considered by many to be a model for the direction wildlife preservation efforts should take. Located in northern Kenya the reserve covers 62,000 acres, including an area known as the Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT). The NRT is a partnership between Lewa and communities on its northern border who voluntarily provide land for wildlife preservation. If you plan to visit the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy you will find no better guide than Flash McTours.

COMMON ANIMALS IN LEWA WILDLIFE CONSERVANCY

Most of the Lewa Conservancy lies on a high plateau at more than 1,500 meters. From many places in the park, one can see the imposing profile of Mount Kenya rising some 25 kilometres to the south. The view south provides a compelling contrast between the lush forests at the base of Mount Kenya in the background and the arid grasslands that make up much of the Conservancy in the foreground. In a step that is unusual for wildlife conservation in East Africa, the directors of Lewa decided to install border fences. Although there are gaps in the fencing at strategic areas to enable wildlife to move between the reserve and the surrounding area.
The best time to visit Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is from January to March and from July to September. The rest of the time it can get very wet, making the ground extremely difficult to navigate. If you are planning a trip to Lewa make sure you talk to the safari experts at Flash McTours first. No one is better qualified to introduce you to this natural wonder.

At about 25 square miles (about 65 square km) Lewa is far from the largest game park in East Africa, but if you have come to Africa to see wildlife it is one of the best. The conservancy is home to lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes and even rhinos. In fact, Lewa plays host to more than 12 percent of the Eastern Black Rhino population in Kenya. But that’s not all.
The Lewa Conservancy is also home to cheetahs, impalas, waterbuck, gazelles, elands, zebras, giraffes, and Somali ostriches. On a good day, you are also likely to spot some hippos in the Lewa swamp. With so much wildlife packed into such a relatively compact space viewing opportunities are many and you are certain to leave with photos and memories to last a lifetime.
