Safari Guru's short safaris in Kenya: Lewa Wildlife Conservancy

Lewa, spanning 45,000 acres, is a distinguished private game ranch situated 30 miles north of the equator, nestled at the foothills of Mt. Kenya. It proudly hosts the renowned Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, featuring limited private houses and camps, ensuring an exceptionally exclusive game viewing experience. Recognised as one of Africa's premier rhino-watching destinations, the reserve not only houses the Big Five but also boasts the world's largest population of the rare Grevy's zebra and other unique northern species. Activities abound, ranging from horseback riding, scenic flights, and night drives to walking safaris, camel riding, and photographic hides.

A selection of Safari Guru's preferred lodges in Lewa Wildlife Conservancy: Lewa Safari Camp, Lewa Wilderness, Lewa House and Sirikoi Lodge

Alternatively, should you have more time, why not combine Lewa with another premier wildlife destination? Lewa connects well with the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

Safari Guru's short safaris in Kenya: Maasai Mara

Affectionately known as "The Mara," this impressive expanse of protected land is widely acclaimed as one of Africa's premier wildlife sanctuaries. The Mara forms part of the Greater Serengeti, spanning two countries, including Tanzania, and hosts some of Africa's most incredible wildlife phenomena. Essentially, the Mara serves as the northern extension of the Serengeti ecosystem, hosting the extraordinary natural spectacle known as the Great Wildebeest Migration. Over a million animals make their way through the areas in search of fresh grazing between the months of August and October each year.

The stunning backdrop of the Siria Escarpment in the west provides a captivating view of vast savannas, riverine woodlands, and forests across a deceptively flat landscape, studded with free-roaming wildlife, including all of Africa's big cats, such as cheetah, lion and Leopard.

A selection of Safari Guru's preferred lodges in the Maasai Mara: Governors' Camp, Mara Expedition Camp, Rekero Camp. And for high-end luxury options, offering elevated service levels and private vehicles, Mara Plains Camp, Angama Mara, and Mara Nyika Camp

Kenya's coastline is a paradise waiting to be explored, and at its heart lies the stunning Diani Beach.

Like the Serengeti in Tanzania, Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve becomes part of the ‘great migration’, a never-ending circle of life followed by over a million animals. The infamous river crossings, with giant scavenging crocodiles and countless wildebeest charging across the Mara Rivers steep banks into the perilous waters below, are the most prominent happenings associated with this mind-blowing event.

The great wildebeest migration, with millions of grazing animals moving from the Serengeti National Park to the Mara, usually starts to arrive in the Mara towards the end of June and leaves by early October. Another smaller migration of wildebeest takes place from the Loita plains through the Mara Conservancies, starting in Ol Kinyei in February and March (when calving takes place) and then moving during the following weeks through Naboisho and Olare Motorogi Conservancies towards the Mara Reserve.
