The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy works as a model and catalyst for the conservation of wildlife and its habitat.
Marking its 20th Anniversary, this year’s Safaricom Marathon, hosted by Tusk and the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, once again saw more than 1,400 runners from over 40 countries tackling the incredibly challenging yet breathtakingly beautiful course in northern Kenya.
