Lewa Wilderness Lodge


Situated on the edge of one of Kenya’s most private wildlife and environmental conservation projects, the wildlife-rich Lewa provides guests a home-away-from-home experience that’s hard to find elsewhere. The advantage of being located in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is that guests are surrounded by rich game viewing opportunities without the crowds. A maximum of just 3 vehicles are allowed at a wildlife sighting, ensuring an exclusive game viewing experience.

There is a very good chance of seeing all of the “Big Five” and Lewa is one of the only conservancies where guests are almost guaranteed to see the endangered black and white rhinos while on safari. With the backdrop of snow-capped Mount Kenya and the diversity of scenery from open plains, rolling hills, valleys, escarpments and rivers, Lewa is a magical place to game drive for the ultimate Kenyan safari experience. And with their new electric game drive vehicles, they are leading the way in environmentally friendly game viewing.

There are six thatched cottages, built into the hillside with stunning visas overlooking Lewa’s Eastern Marania Valley. These provide the ultimate in privacy, where guests will feel like they are the only occupants for miles. A further 3 garden cottages are set amongst the brilliant green lawns, each boasting a sizeable open-plan living area complete with fireplace, flanked by a large room and bathroom on each side. Each cottage has en suite facilities, a cosy sitting area and fireplace. There are private verandas where one can enjoy a morning coffee whilst watching the sunrise, or perhaps a private dining experience.
