Anthony Bourdain’s Kenya Episode Featuring Lewa to Air September 23rd, 9pm Eastern

In the first week of March 2018, Lewa welcomed a special visitor. Anthony Bourdain, the charismatic American celebrity chef, author and television show host was visiting Kenya, and Lewa was on his itinerary. He was accompanied by comedian and presenter Kamau Bell, host of CNN’s United Shades of America, and their crew. They stayed at Lewa Wilderness and spent days on the Conservancy, with a final visit to Il Ngwesi community. The team was filming for an upcoming series of the hit programme, CNN’s Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown

It saddened us all to learn of Anthony’s death two months ago, but the enigmatic chef’s influence on travel and adventure has not waned. While we were not sure what would happen to the Kenya episode, CNN has now announced that it will honour Bourdain’s legacy by airing a final season of Parts Unknown, which premiere’s on 23rd September. The premiere will feature the Kenya episode, which was the only one completed before his death.
