Overview

Lewa Wilderness sits within one of Kenya’s major private conservation success stories; the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy 62,000 acres of varied African terrain, overlooked by the magnificent Mount Kenya, has as good a wildlife experience as anywhere else in Africa. Lewa Wilderness is one of Kenya’s original private safari experiences and has been the Craig family home since 1972, where they proudly continue to entertain guests giving a truly unique and personal safari experience.

Little Governors’ is in the heart of the richest wildlife area of the Masai Mara. Overlooking a seasonal waterhole, you don’t even have to leave the camp to experience the wonders of the Masai Mara. Elephant, warthog, impala and numerous other visitors freely wonder through the camp. Little Governors’ hasn’t strayed from its beginnings as a traditional safari camp. Everything is designed and created to allow enjoyment of the pristine environment it is set in.

The Masai Mara is widely considered to offer the best game viewing in Africa, famous for its famous big cats, rhino and abundant game.
