For over forty years, the Craig family has been welcoming guests to their home at Lewa Wilderness Lodge, one of Kenya’s oldest private safari destinations.
Situated in the foothills of Mount Kenya, the camp affords breathtaking views from the main lodge as well as the individual cottages. Of the nine exclusive rooms, six are newly added “Hill Rooms,” offering panoramic views of the surrounding wilderness. Each cottage is unique in its layout, shape, and configuration. Each cottage features an en-suite bathroom, a private sitting area with a cozy fireplace, a bar, and a veranda with stunning views. The three “Garden Rooms” are closer to the main lodge area and are ideal for families or groups traveling together. Lush lawns, en-suite bathrooms, and shared veranda and sitting room beckon guests to relax and enjoy their hideaway.
Lewa Wilderness is conveniently located on the edge of 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.
