Concierge.com's insider take:
Lewa is a private reserve run by a nonprofit conservation group that aims to protect regional wildlife, notably the Grevy's Zebra (the ranch has seventeen percent of the world's population), and the big five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and the endangered rhino). The park has three luxurious lodges: The Safari Camp has tented accommodation with ensuite bathrooms, a separate lodge for meals, and a pool; Lewa House, available to groups only, is perched on the northern slopes of Mount Kenya and has three rustic cottages with swamp-grass roofs and a private veranda; Wilderness Trails has nine thatched cottages, a saltwater pool, a clay tennis court, and stables. Prices include full board, game drives, bush walks, and horse rides. Lewa is generally closed for rainy seasons (from April 1 to May 31 and November 1 to December 1).
