The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (also known as Lewa Downs) is located in central Kenya, south of Isiolo town, north of Mount Kenya. Formed in 1995 from land that was once a cattle ranch, Lewa is a unique wildlife sanctuary incorporating the Ngare Ndare Forest and covering over 62,000 acres. The Conservancy is home to a wide variety of wildlife including the rare and endangered black rhino, Grevy’s zebra and sitatunga. It also includes the white rhino and the rest of the big five (lion, leopard, elephant and Cape buffalo). In fact, Lewa holds over 12% of Kenya’s black rhino population and the largest single population of Grevy’s zebras in the world with over 350 individuals. The area provides a rich wildlife safari experience and incredible views of the famous Mnt. Kilimanjaro.
