Set on top of a hill overlooking the Lewa Conservancy towards the Mathew Mountains, Lewa House offers comfortable cottages and attentive service.
Accommodations at Lewa House consist of cottage style rooms scattered along the hillside, all looking to the expanse of wilderness to the north. The family cottages are part of the original thatched house and rough stone walls and furnished with matching rough-hewn hardwood furniture. There is a twin and double room each with an en suite bathroom and a private veranda, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee and admiring the scenery. The four earth pod rooms provide a unique and comfortable stay. The original architecture is designed to disappear into the landscape, collect and store rainwater, and maintain an even temperature.
The house is conveniently located in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, a 62,000-acre protected area with exceptional diversity of wildlife and beautiful countryside. 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 observe the beauties of Kenya and her wildlife. Several endangered species call the area home, including black and white rhino, Grevy’s zebra, and sitatunga. Prolific plains game, predators, and other animals such as elephant and wild dogs are often sighted by guests. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is also home to 350 bird species including the Somali ostrich.
