Begin your day with a bush breakfast as the African sun rises, surrounded by the natural beauty of the conservancy. In the evening, enjoy the tradition of a “sundowner,” sipping cocktails against the backdrop of a sinking equatorial sun.

Guests can visit neighboring Samburu manyattas to engage with the local community, learn about their culture and traditions, and support local artisans by purchasing handcrafted items.

Explore the efforts of the Lewa Education Programme with visits to local schools and the conservancy’s headquarters. Learn about the impact of conservation on the community and get involved in initiatives such as conservation of wildlife.

Elewana Kifaru House is also poised to host romantic milestones. Honeymooners can enjoy special packages, and the property can curate unforgettable weddings and vow renewal ceremonies amidst the beauty of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.
