Aberdare National Park, Kenya
Cosy and rustic, Lewa Safari Camp offers luxurious comfort within the sprawling Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, just north of the Aberdares Mountain Range. With thatched roofs, toasty log fires and natural furnishings, this camp always entices us with its relaxing and authentic African charm.
All of the 11 safari tents feature a spacious veranda and an en-suite bathroom, as well as rustic African-style furnishings that add a homely feel. We love that the front of the tent can be opened up to give you phenomenal views of the never-ending plains. There are also two family safari tents that consist of two safari tents with a shared veranda.
The main areas are just as welcoming, with gorgeous gardens abundant in birdlife framing the veranda and swimming pool. Inside the lounge and dining tents, the rich oranges, rural decor and roaring fireplaces offer the perfect respite between game drives and activities.
Activities are plentiful at Lewa Safari Camp. From camel rides and horseback safaris to visiting local villages and exploring Ngare Ndare forest, you’ll be fully immersed into Africa’s splendour. The game drives are spectacular too – the conservancy is home to the largest population of Grevy’s zebra, as well as 10% of Kenya’s black rhino. It’s no wonder Prince William proposed to Kate in this wonderful area.
