Masai Mara 2007- Lewa Downs

Share This!

Lewa is not a camp like our other two locations. It has permanent, rustic, and luxurious cottages in a beautiful setting. It has been run by the Craig family for the last 30 years. They have dedicated themselves to conservation of the animals in this part of Africa.

At Lewa you can go on horseback rides, camel rides, and long walks, and evening game drives in open vehicles. There are many rhino because it is a protected area. While we were there Simon King of the BBC (he is a big part of Big Cat Diaries on TV) was filming 3 cheetah brothers as they went about their day. They killed an ostrich, which we were told will be on TV in 2009. To think we were right there with him……

Very comfortable and warm meeting area

Dining area

Meeting area prior to going off on walks etc.

My bedroom

It was a large room that could fit a familly. There were even beds in a loft. Nights were cool due to the elevation so a fire welcomed you after the evening meal.
