Kifaru House is an intimate and charming safari lodge ideally situated in the Lewa Conservancy, famous for its successful rhino conversation programs.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of five thatched cottages. Each spacious cottage is furnished with elegant four-poster beds that face generous windows and folding doors that open onto a spectacular view of the verdant plains below. Four of the cottages come with a king bed. For families, one of the cottages includes two bedrooms, one double and two twins, with separate entrances. The en suite bathroom features a flush toilet, double vanity, and a shower. One of the cottages even has a Victorian bath and an outdoor shower.
The camp is based within the 65,000-acre reserve of the Lewa Wilderness Trust, a popular destination for celebrities, royals, conservationists, writers and photographers. The Lewa Conservancy has been the driving force in in Kenya’s strong initiatives to protect and preserve wildlife, particularly, the black and white rhino populations. Lewa Wildlife Conservancy gained worldwide recognition through the National Geographic program “Game Ranger Diaries.” In addition to holding 10% of Kenya’s black rhino population and 15% of its white rhino population, Lewa features the rest of Africa’s “big five” as well as the endangered Grevy’s zebra, cheetah, giraffe, and many smaller species.
