The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy has been in existence since 1995 and is renowned for its highly successful conservation results. The area is home to staggering numbers of both black and white rhino, plus the world’s largest single population of Grevy’s zebra.
Following Lewa's incredible success story, and with a proven track record, the Conservancy’s model of community-based conservation development is being rolled out across northern Kenya, and set as an example for other East African conservancies.
The area, which covers approximately 251 square kilometres, has an extremely high security level to protect the endangered wildlife species with some 150 highly trained rangers, and exceptionally high standards in terms of eco-tourism. This has made the conservancy a wildlife haven, and it is now home to 10% of Kenya's rhino population, with an annual growth of around 12%. Other species include leopard, lion, elephant, sitatunga, Cape buffalo, Grevy's zebra and wild dog.
