At the foot of Mt Kenya, Lewa Downs safari has been the Craig family home since 1924 when the Craig grandparents came from England and began raising cattle here. It was then established as a black rhino sanctuary in the early 80s. Hailed as one of Kenya's biggest conservation successes, the Lewa Downs safari is committed to the conservation of wildlife and diverse habitats found on the northern slopes of Mt Kenya. Endangered species abound, ranging from the Grevy's zebra to Sitatunga and oryx.  From Lewa the rolling red hills spread north with long ranging vistas as far as the eye can see.

Guest Testimonial

This is the second trip we have done with A&K. (The first was in 1999.) We were very impressed with A&K on the first trip. We were even more impressed with A&K on the second trip. Consequently, we are already considering a third trip with A&K – to Egypt in March 2014.

There are two rain seasons, the long rains occur from late March to early June and short rains from October to December. The rainfall is sometimes heavy and when it does come it often falls in the afternoons and evenings. The hottest period is from February to March and coldest in July to August.
