Fodor's Expert Review Lewa Safari Camp

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Meru, Kenya

If it's rhinos you're after, then this delightful but small tented camp in the 65,000-acre Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, right where the old Rhino Sanctuary headquarters used to stand, is for you. There's a comfortable main building with cozy log fires for eating and relaxing, and wide verandas outside each tent for soaking up the beautiful environs. But if it's game-viewing you're after, then one of the camp's expert team of professional guides will take you on an exhilarating drive. Spacious tents protected by a sturdy thatch roof have comfortable beds, a desk for keeping up on those precious journal notes, and en suite bathrooms. The food is homegrown and tasty. Bird-watching is spectacular in this area, but it's likely that while you're watching out for feathered friends, you're likely to spot big game as well, including lion, leopard, and Grevy's zebra. Other activities include morning game walks, evening horse rides, or a relaxing massage next to the gorgeous pool that has giraffe-shaped tiles.
