Days 7 : Sosian Conservancy to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, northern Kenya
Wake early for a game drive to track Wild Dog with your expert guide. Both Sosian and the The Ol Donyo Lemboro Conservancy are also home to large numbers of elephant, in smaller herds than in Samburu and other parts of the country, a positive sign of being unstressed. Reticulated giraffe, the endangered Grevy’s Zebra (Equus grevyi) Hippo, Buffalo, Warthog, Lion, hyenas, Bat-eared foxes and lots of antelope species are all commonly seen. Of the more exciting and interesting species there as good leopard sightings, Aardwolf, the near threatened striped hyena, and Aardvark.
Return to Camp for lunch, after noon transfer to the Sosian airstrip for your flight to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and either Sirikoi Camp or Lewa Safari Camp, dependent upon the season and the proximity of both Black and White Rhino.
The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is home to the largest concentration of Grevy’s zebra in the world, and its range of habitats attracts diverse birdlife and hosts over 130 Black and White rhino.
On arrival at the Lewa Conservancy, you will be met by your driver guide who will take you to the Lewa marshlands. Within these marshlands are the roosts of the Endangered Grey crowned Crane (the national bird of Uganda). With an estimated population of less than fifty thousand birds left in the world, twenty thousand of which can be found in Kenya. These are a magnificent sight to see. Lewa is home to Black Rhino and the Northern Rangelands Trust conservation program.
Before sunset, dependent upon the time of year travelling and the proximity of the specific wildlife species, arrive at either Sirikoi or Lewa Safari Camp.
