Elewana also helps out other local groups working directly with wildlife and environmental conservation in the Mara. I saw firsthand a big campaign to raise awareness around the plight of vultures across Kenya, a cause that the Elewana guides feel passionately about and were educating their guests on. The local cheetah conservation group is also regularly seen at the camp, with guides sharing behavioural information and sightings to boost research.
If, like me, you’re an eco-conscious traveler who’s always wanted to go on safari, Elewana is the perfect fit! Not only will you get to have the unequalled experience of game viewing on the Mara, but you’ll do it in a way that’s comfortable, stylish, and uncompromising when it comes to environmental and social sustainability. Now get out there and find those lions!
