Lewa Conservancy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was founded in 1996 to protect endangered rhino populations from poachers. Today, rhinos make up 13% of all wildlife within the conservancy. This award-winning model community conservation isn’t only a black rhino stronghold; it’s also home to the Big Five and a range of luxurious safari opportunities.

Lewa Downs has been an exclusive safari destination for ages and coincidentally happens to be where the British Prince Willian proposed to Kate Middleton in 2010. The main drawcard for Lewa? The freedom to pursue a range of safari activities in a secluded environment. Lodges within the area also offer horseback safaris and excursions on camelback.

Maasai Mara Game Reserve

The Masai Mara National Reserve is one of Kenya’s most iconic destinations and lies within the Great Rift Valley. Regarded as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing areas, most visitors make their way to the western parts of the reserve as this is where the most significant concentration of animals reside. More than 1.5 million animals arrive in the reserve in July and depart in November, an event known across the world as the annual wildebeest migration.

Nowhere in Africa is wildlife more abundant than in the Masai Mara. The Mara is renowned as one of the finest wildlife destinations on earth, with ample opportunities to spot the Big Five along with a range of other wildlife.

The reserve covers an area of 1,510 square kilometres and encompasses breath-taking vistas, abundant wildlife, and endless plains or rolling grassland. As a photography paradise, the reserve is abundant in big game, including giraffe, lion, elephant, hippos, and crocodiles.

For a more of an off-the-beaten-path Kenyan experience, Samburu is an excellent option that offers a wide variety of creature comforts. Offering unique experiences and game viewing opportunities, the Samburu National Reserve is considered a gem among discerning safari goers due to the fact that it’s relatively uncrowded.

The Ewaso Nyiro River nurtures the reserve, and although the terrain is rugged, it is also inciting and enveloped in a remote Old Africa ambiance. With Samburu’s people that are elegantly proud and unfailingly friendly, you’ll experience why a Kenyan safari might be centred around seeing African animals, but the fondest memories you’ll have will be of its people.

Laikipia Plateau

Laikipia is one of Kenya’s most progressive and biggest conservation success stories and is home to a wealth of wildlife that stands up to the famous Masai Mara’s likes. Located in the north-eastern side of the Great Rift Valley and on the north-west of the snow-capped Mount Kenya, Laikipia is known to many as the gateway to the more remote northern frontier of Kenya.

With its wide-open spaces and untamed wilderness, these sprawling highland plains provide more than enough space for a luxurious safari experience. Here, the emphasis is on smaller, luxury safari tourism that creates an income for the tribes that call Laikipia home; the Samburu, Ilaikipiak, and the Mokogodo Maasai.

Home to the lion’s share of Kenya’s endangered species, Laikipia is where almost half of the country’s black rhino population resides. It’s also the second most important site for wild dog conservation in Africa.

The natural haven of Laikipia consists of a variety of ranches and conservancies that work hand-in-hand to protect the region’s biodiversity. The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is one of Laikipia’s oldest conservancies that incorporates the hills of Lewa Downs. From riverine woodland to scrub bushveld and expansive plains, the landscapes here never fail to captivate.

Lake Turkana

Also known as the “Jade Sea”, Lake Turkana forms part of the collection of Great Rift Lakes and is home to termite mounds up to 20 feet tall that stand as beacons throughout the region. Turkana is the world’s largest permanent desert lake and is an uncompromising scenic masterpiece. It was here where Humankind began its migration out of Africa some hundred thousand years ago.

Spanning across 300-kilometers, the lake’s northern tip stretches into Ethiopia. The region’s spellbinding beauty lies within the algae in the lake that changes color from grey to blue as clouds scud overhead. But since the lake’s surface generally dances deep green in sunlight, it’s referred to as the Jade Sea.

Even though the temperatures in this region can reach a whopping 63°C (142°F), cooling down in the tempting waters of Turkana is a dangerous game as it is home to the world’s largest population of crocodiles.
