|Our tent at Lewa Safari Camp|
Lewa Safari Camp is a part of the Elewana Collection, a group of boutique camps and lodges throughout East Africa owned or managed by the Elewana Corporation. Elewana comes from a kiswahili word that means "harmony" and "understanding" and all of their sites are specially designed to take advantage of the unique and iconic landscapes of Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar.

Our first day at Lewa would provide us with the most sun we would see during our stay in Kenya, and we appreciated the beautiful views of distant mountains. Because of the rains, the grass was high, but that didn't prevent us from seeing a wide variety of game, from the numerous herds of elephant, impala, zebra and eland to huge bustard birds, ostriches, and small and delicate crested cranes. Perhaps most exciting the Lewa Conservancy offered us the rare opportunity to see many rhino, both black and white.
As travel agents, our group quickly bonded around our shared vocation and the special experience of the African bush. The total of ten was a perfect number. A trip is definitely improved if it is shared. Game drives, tented camps, and the awe-inspiring views of the African bush teeming with game, provide a great venue for making new friends and solidifying older relationships by sharing special experiences. If you haven't visited East Africa, you should definitely put it on your bucket list!
