Over and above the funding that Lewa Safari Camp generates for the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy projects, we are specifically encouraging additional donor support for the Conservancy’s Lewa Education Programme. The programme supports 12 schools in the surrounding communities, providing classrooms, kitchens, teachers’ housing, a feeding programme reaching over 4,000 children, bursaries for over 500 students, assistance to 60 orphans, adult literacy catering for 300 people and conservation education running three times a week, open to students all over Kenya.
If you would like to visit one of the schools during your safari or to learn more about the Conservation work that Lewa Wildlife Conservancy does, please contact us.
If you would like to visit ongoing work, participation depends on the availability of conservancy personnel etc, but could include visiting the tracker dogs in their training, or a general discussion about the conservation work from those involved. Contact us for more information.
If you are considering bringing donations from abroad, visit the Pack for a Purpose website for very specific advice on what is needed. Please do note that when flying within Kenya, the internal flight weight restriction is 15kg and may therefore limit what you can carry with you to the camps and donate to the rural communities in person. We can always, however, donate anything over and above your weight limit on your behalf at a later date.
