Kigio Wildlife Conservancy is a 3,500-acre conservancy of riverine and euphorbia woodlands, short grass and leleshwa shrub. Wildlife includes the endangered Rothschild giraffe, hippo and leopard; over 250 bird species have been recorded. The conservancy is dedicated to wildlife, environment and the community, and has been recognised by Tusk Trust, Born Free Trust and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Kigio Wildlife Camp has been built using sustainable wood, natural thatch and traditional African building methods. It uses solar power, recycles its waste and serves food sourced from local farmers. There are 11 suites and 1 2-bedroom family suite. Each suite is built on a deck and contains a bedroom, sitting area, bathroom and balcony. The dining area overlooks a striking red cliff that is home to colonies of bee-eaters; the bar is shaded by 2 fever trees. From dining decks near the river, guests can watch hippos and buffalos. Malewa Wildlife Lodge has been built using sustainable wood, natural thatch and traditional African building methods. It uses solar power, recycles its waste and serves food sourced from local farmers. The lodge is set in woodland on the Malewa River. It has 4 single floor cottages, 1 2-floor cottage with 2 bedrooms and 4 glass-fronted river suites, raised on stilts, with balconies overlooking the river. Both camps’ naturalists are happy to assist with nature walks, day and night game drives, biking and fishing. Kigio Wildlife Conservancy is committed to being environmentally sustainable and socially conscious. Its current projects include working with local communities on a sustainable firewood project, an organic garden and a local honey scheme. The camp’s shops sell products manufactured by the community such as hand-woven rugs and home grown honey.
