Lewa Wilderness sits within one of Kenya’s major private conservation success stories; the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. 62,000 acres of varied African terrain, overlooked by the magnificent Mount Kenya, has as good a wildlife experience as anywhere else in Africa.
Lewa Wilderness is one of Kenya’s original private safari experiences and has been the Craig family home since 1972 where they proudly continue to entertain guests giving a truly unique and personal safari experience. Being the hub of all activities on Lewa, there is an endless list of activities on offer; owning East Africa’s only open cockpit biplane and a stable yard of horses suited to all levels of experience. Guest can also camel ride among the wildlife, game drive, take guided bush walks, visit the local community enhancement projects, and much more.
Natural springs, home-raised livestock, and a 5-acre organic garden is the source of the healthy and delicious cuisine served against the backdrop of passing herds of wildlife. The lodge has ten cottages tucked into the hillside overlooking Lewa’s Eastern Marania Valley, each luxuriously comfortable with the rustic character of a ranch homestead.
