Lewa House

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy

Closed April and November

Lewa House is a luxury farm stay experience based in the famous Lewa Conservancy. This 62 000 acre conservancy is home to a healthy population of Rhino that are monitored 24 hours a day as well as Grevy’s Zebra. The location has stunning views over the savanna as well as of Mount Kenya and the Mathews Range of mountains.

The farm was first established in 1922 as a cattle ranch but today the focus is completely on wildlife conservation. Home to the Macfarlane family the lodge is owner run and operated ensuring excellent service and attention to detail. In 2013 the conservancy was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There is a swimming pool that is kept well insulated and thus very warm and the grounds surrounding the pool are shaded. This is a great place for lunch and to spot game on the hillsides.

Activities here are focused on both game drives and bush walks with high chances of seeing both Black and White Rhino all in one drive. While the conservancy acts as a wildlife corridor special gates prevent them from leaving the area, the rare Grevy’s Zebra, Beisa Oryx, Lion and Cheetah were common sightings during our stay.

Family Cottages and Earthpods

The family cottages were once part of the original farmhouse, rough stone walls and thatch roofing are traditional styles of construction. The cottages have a double and twin room, each with their own en-suite bathroom. The veranda at the front is shared.

The Earthpods, designed by the family, have curved walls and a very warm interior. These can be made up as a double or twin room. Three of the Earthpods have an outside bath that is well worth making use of.
