The accommodation at Lewa House is in the form of cottage style rooms which are spread out along the hillside, all looking to the expanse of wilderness to the north. There are 3 of the original (the house was originally a private home) thatched family cottages, each comprising of two en-suite rooms and a large shared veranda. The 4 recently added single room cottages are built with sustainable, ecological principles in mind whilst still being exceptionally comfortable and spacious, with wonderful views across the surrounding landscape.
Gear up with goggles and a leather jacket and take to the skies in a yellow bi-plane. Jump into a helicopter from the lawn and go fishing up the mountain. The bi-plane is flown by Sophie’s uncle whose love of flying will give you an unforgettable aerial experience. This flight will take you over the inaccessible cliffs and valleys of Lewa to give you that ‘Out of Africa’ experience. Or go horse or camel riding where an experienced guide will lead the ride and deepen the experience of your encounters.
A team of fully-qualified driver guides are on hand for vehicle safaris across the conservancy. All the main safari predators, the rare Grevy zebra, of course the threatened rhino can be viewed in abundance and also get off the beaten track to see the cheetah kill is part of the experience of witnessing nature in tooth and claw. Game walks will open up the landscape and let you appreciate the smaller (or sometimes very large) animals as well as the tracks, trails, signs, sights, sounds and smells of the wilderness – something you often miss from the car.
Lewa House Reviews
“All extremely perfect. The cottege’s bedroom elegantly furnished. Tasty and well served food. The hospitality of the owner is unique and special. The villa is perfectly placed in the reserve. The safari is included in the price. It’s included also the aperitif at 6 pm on the top of the William hill. It’s really a romantic atmosphere.” – Sandra C
“Loved everything about this place. Great wildlife, really beautiful accommodation, a lovely pool and wonderful hosts! It was an outstanding experience. One of the best times I’ve ever had in Africa. And such a variety of landscapes on the slopes of Mt Kenya … divine!” – SueSydney
“Our August stay was absolutely wonderful. From our first view of the property we were amazed at the quality of the resort. Sophie and Calum were tremendous hosts with their very friendly staff. The wonderful meals were served with beautiful views. The game guides were knowledgeable, friendly and were always setting us up of great photo opportunities. Thanks again for a memorable visit.” – Eugene C
To the north-east of the Great Rift Valley, and north-west of snow-capped Mount Kenya, the high plains of Laikipia are increasingly recognised as one of Kenya’s best safari regions, challenging the Maasai Mara for overall safari experience.
