Lewa Wildlife Conservancy encompasses 65,000 acres of untouched African wilderness. With views of snow-capped Mt Kenya to the south and the arid lands of Tassia and Il Ngwesi to the north, Lewa showcases a variety of wild habitats including highland forests, wide open grasslands, melt-water mountain springs, and acacia woodland, and is home to over 440 bird species. The conservancy was established in 1983 and is well-known for its successful rhino and Grevy zebra breeding; Lewa is home to 10% of Kenya’s rhino population and 20% of the world’s Grevy zebra population. The conservancy is completely fenced, and it employs over 150 rangers. With its Community Development Program, the conservancy conducts extensive outreach into the surrounding communities, including healthcare, education, micro-finance, and water projects – in order to share the benefits of wildlife with the community.
