Family owned and run, this delightful lodge is as welcoming as it is exciting
Arriving at Lewa House, it really does feel like someone’s comfortable and welcoming family home – that’s because it is.
The owners Sophie and Calum live here with their young family and are on hand to share every diversion Lewa House has to offer. They are exceptional hosts.
Lewa wildlife conservancy is one of Kenya’s greatest conservation success stories and is now home to one of the largest rhino populations in East Africa. Game drives here are sure to delight; as well as the rhinos you’re likely to see lions, hyena, elephant and the endangered Grevy’s Zebra, to name but a few.
You would be forgiven for never wanting to leave the lodge itself – meals around the pool, for example, are a must, to relax and take in the stunning views towards Mt Kenya. Each room has a beautiful view and every comfort you would require.
Outside of traditional game drives, Lewa House offers a wide variety of activities, such as visits to the nearby waterfalls, treks to Mount Kenya, horse riding in the conservancy, You can also visit the conservancy headquarters and learn about the conservation activities taking place, including the anti-poaching tracker dog unit.
Lewa is one of our favourite places in Kenya to visit and Lewa House is the perfect base from which to explore this captivating part of Africa.
