Lewa House

Lewa Conservancy, Kenya

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

This is a spectacular option in the Lewa Conservancy. It is not chic or fancy but a seriously spacious lodge to enjoy the Lewa Conservancy. A perfect spot for families with children. The owners of this camp live on property and are absolutely delightful!

Lewa House is situated against the dramatic backdrop of the snow-covered massif of Mount Kenya in the Lewa Conservancy. The Conservancy has many diverse habitats from pristine forest, fertile grasslands, extensive springs and acacia woodland. Formerly a working cattle ranch, it is now the headquarters of one of Kenya's major non-profit wildlife conservancies. Lewa serves as a safe refuge for the critically endangered black rhino and the endangered Grevy’s zebra, as well as the elephant, lion, giraffe, wild dog and other iconic wildlife species in Kenya. The Conservancy is also home to more than 400 species of birds.

Lewa House's main building with a lounge and dining area, opens up to the charmingly furnished veranda with its own special vista across the plains of Northern Kenya. A short walk away there are four spacious rooms (earth pods) and three large guest cottages and one family cottage. All the rooms and cottages have en-suite bathrooms, apart from the family cottage, which has a shared bathroom. They all have a private veranda where guests can relax in the cool of the evening to enjoy the starlit African skies. A large swimming pool overlooking the waterhole is also yours to enjoy.

Activities include day and night game drives, bush walks, sundowners, educational talks on the history and day-to-day operation of the Conservancy, plus visits to a pre-historic archaeological site.
