Kifaru House

Lewa Conservancy

Visiting Kifaru House is akin to diving deep into the age old traditions and qualities of Africa during the unexplored times of yesteryear. Located in the Lewa Conservancy the area is known to have one of the healthiest Black and White Rhino populations in all of East Africa. “Kifaru” is the Swahili word for Rhino.

The camp has been built on a small hill and has fantastic views over the 62 000 acres of prime wildlife habitat. The grounds of lush green lawns are dotted with Acacia trees’ and a swimming pool and Mount Kenya can often be seen from here. The patio surrounding the pool is a great place to have lunch.

There are several main guest areas as well as a deck with seating from which to sip coffee and spot game on the plains below. Dinners in the evening are communal and the lounge area, with fireplaces on either end, is a very social area for pre-dinner drinks and to discuss the days activities and sightings.

There is a wide range of activities from which to choose for both adults and children besides the daily game drives and walking safaris’.


Kifaru House has 5 cottages as well as a family cottage built with brick and thatched roofs. The cottages are spacious and one is slightly more plush, the honeymoon cottage, that has a bath and outdoor shower. En-suite bathrooms have both single and double vanity basins, showers and complimentary toiletries.

The camp is fenced and has an extensive children’s program allowing parents free time to relax.
