The Aberdare Country Club, only a three-hour drive north east of Nairobi, is nestled on a slope of Mweiga Hill in the Aberdare Highlands, part of the Great Rift Valley.

This captivating site was selected, with much emotion, by an English couple who had decided to settle in the land of their choosing, Kenya. It all happened many years ago; their children grew up there, but then moved on to different places. After almost half a century, their home, ‘The Steep’, was sold and re-named ‘The Aberdare Country Club’. Even though the property was sold on and developed along the lines the original owners would not have dreamed of, it was carefully nurtured and kept in a way they would have approved.

The club’s 1,300-acre wildlife sanctuary is teeming with Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, zebras, giraffes and the more reclusive leopards. It is a haven of unhurried charm set in a garden bursting with a profusion of colour, and with peacocks living within the lush green lawns.

Walking through this unspoiled terrain is paradise. Play a round of golf, watched by a family of warthog, or fish for trout, play tennis or just relax by the pool within the beautiful gardens. From here you can see the sunset with the stunning Aberdare Mountains as a backdrop.

Lewa Wilderness is one of Kenya’s oldest private safari experiences. For forty years, guests have been coming to this remarkable region to be part of an adventure like no other. Those four decades have seen that passion passed down through the Craig family who proudly continue to run Lewa Wilderness today.

Lewa Wilderness is one of the original family homes and is still home to Will and Emma Craig. Guests can relax by the fire in the cosy sitting room and share meals around a long banquet table in the open-air dining room. Natural springs, home-raised livestock, and a five-acre organic garden are transformed by skilled chefs into incredible, healthy and delicious food.

There are just nine exclusive rooms; five are Hill Rooms looking down the Lewa’s Western Marania Valley, while the other four are Garden Rooms on the lush lawn adjacent to the main living areas. All feature a sitting room area with a well-stocked bar and open log fireplace for our frequent cool nights, as well as spacious en-suite facilities.

The Garden Rooms at Lewa Wilderness are nearest the main areas and are built in pairs, with private en-suite facilities and a shared veranda and sitting room. The layout of these rooms is ideal for a family or those who do not want to walk too far as they are nearer the main facilities. The rooms are flanked and fronted by well-kept lawns which give families that extra outdoor space to use. There is a view down to the bush pool and onto the Lewa Wilderness valley beyond. The Garden Rooms were built to cater for families and remain very close to the heart of everything that happens here.

The Hill Rooms have been added most recently to take advantage of the stunning northerly views from Lewa. On a clear day, which is most days, the view stretches away giving a true perspective of just how remote this setting is. Each room is quite different in its layout and sleeping configuration and takes advantage of the uneven hillside to form unusual shapes which load them with character. Every room also features en-suite facilities and its own private sitting area, bar and veranda.

Activities include horse riding, walking with the Masai, game drives, scenic flights, camel rides, cultural visits to local communities, farm and craft tours, visits to the local school, prehistoric sites, tennis, and swimming in the horizon saltwater swimming pool overlooking the ravine. A private ranch, a private house and a private paradise; that is Lewa Wilderness.
