Lewa House is located in the very heart of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. This small, owner-run lodge offers unique access to all corners of this world-renowned conservation area. Perched on the crest of a hill, Lewa House looks out over a range of ecosystems that make up the protected area and offers excellent access to all aspects of this rich wildlife arena. Through a range of authentic activities, guests are able to unlock and understand what is being achieved here.

The cottage-style rooms are spread out along the hillside, all looking to the expanse of wilderness to the north. There are three family-style rustic cottages, each comprising of two elegantly furnished en-suite rooms and a large shared verandah. The cottages are built with sustainable, ecological principles in mind whilst being exceptionally comfortable and spacious, with wonderful views across the surrounding landscape.

The central area is a large elegant building with an open fireplace at one end where guests can relax during the day and mingle with a drink before dinner, and at the other end is a large family dining table where evening meals are served. There is also a large shaded veranda extending away from the main lodge with a comfortable seating area from which you can enjoy a cool afternoon drink and soak in the very special atmosphere of Lewa House.

Beautiful shaded gardens surround the lodge and breakfast or lunch is often served on the lawn. The lodge also has a large swimming pool which overlooks a waterhole, often providing some of the best game-viewing on Lewa.

Lewa House offers a diverse range of activities, including game drives, game walks, horse riding, camel rides, cultural trips to the local Ngwesi Village, and scenic biplane flights.

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.

Laragai sits on the edge of a plateau on Borana Ranch overlooking the Northern Frontier to the north and Lewa Downs to the east, whilst the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Kenya lie to the south. It is the ultimate home from home, designed for groups of friends or families who want to get away from it all.

Opulent interiors invite fun and relaxation, whilst the grounds have a spectacular heated pool, tennis court and garden games such as croquet and bowls. Activities include adventurous walks and drives to seek out Borana's wildlife, or horse rides around the extensive landscapes that characterize this area of Kenya. Families with children especially enjoy going down to the waterfalls with a picnic or visiting the local community projects in Borana's neighbouring villages. Laragai makes an ideal party house for anniversaries or birthdays.

Only available on an exclusive basis, Laragai can sleep 12 adults and four children in six large double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and two children's rooms with a shared bathroom. The unusually large drawing room has open fireplaces at both ends and plenty of space for large groups. Dinner is usually enjoyed in the large separate dining room, whilst breakfast and lunch are served on an elevated deck with panoramic views, or in the cool shade of the pool house.
