Description

rhinos on lewaThis family of 4 with two school-age sons was looking for a unique last-minute summertime adventure, with a variety of camps, lots of activities, authentic cultural experiences and a few nights on the beach at the end. Even though we confirmed this trip within 2 months of travel, we were pleased to line-up family tents and cottages at our first choice of camps, some of which are Masai-owned and -operated.

We’re especially excited for this family to have 4 nights to explore the Lewa/Il Ngwesi area which is a model throughout Africa for their efforts in developing truly community-centric conservation areas.

Plus, there’s just so much to do and see! Hiking with the Masai, visiting local schools and rural manyattas, stargazing from an open-air sleepout, and touring the Conservancy HQ!
