Lewa & the Mara: Lewa Wilderness & Mahali Mzuri Fly-In Safari

This fabulous two centre safari visits the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and the Olare Motorogi Conservancy in the Masai Mara.

Lewa is renowned for having one of the strongest populations of white and black rhinoceros in Kenya, amongst a number of other pioneering conservation initiatives. Lewa Wilderness is one of the properties on the conservancy, and is owned and managed by the Craig family.

Mahali Mzuri is the tented safari camp of Sir Richard Branson who has invested in safeguarding this wonderful area along with four other member camps in Olare. With only five camps in the whole conservancy you are ensured low vehicle density whenever you visit and spectacular wildlife. The camp has a gorgeous location overlooking the plains.

This is a truly wonderful combination.

*If you specifically wish to time your visit with the Great Wildebeest Migration - it is usually in the Masai Mara between around August and October.
