Need to Know

The private 65,000 acre wildlife conservancy of the Lewa Wilderness Trust has a large portion of Kenya’s black and white rhino and the single largest population of Grevy’s zebra in the world. Lewa reinvests all profits generated from tourism into its core programmes.

There is an archaeological site on Lewa, which is rich in tools used by prehistoric man. It is thought the site was an “artisan’s shop”, where the tools were made, as there are so many that a site for domestic use is unlikely. The Museums of Kenya (where the pre-history department was made famous by the Leakey family), have shared their findings of the site with the guides on Lewa.
