Lewa House is set on top of a hill with an engaging panoramic view of the rolling landscape of the Conservancy, and overlooks the luggas (valleys) and hills, with the horizon rising to the eye-catching views of the Mathews range and the sacred mountain of the Samburu, Ol Lolokwe. The accomodation at Lewa House is 3 of the original thatched family cottages, each comprising of two en-suite rooms and a large shared veranda. The 4 recently added single room cottages are built with sustainable, ecological principles in mind. The heart of Lewa House is a large elegant building with an open fireplace at one end and at the other is a large family dining table where the evening meals are served, hosted by Calum and Sophie Macfarlane. There is a large shaded verandah extending away from the main house with a comfortable seating area from which you can enjoy a cool afternoon drink and soak in the very special atmosphere of Lewa House.
The first thing that comes to mind when it comes to speaking about Lewa House is family. This is due to its origins going back numerous generations, creating a genuine personal feel and authentic Kenyan experience whilst staying here. With the lodge being elevated in the middle of a conservancy, you’ll be amidst a haven of wildlife including the Black Rhino which have been relocated here to protect numbers. The lodges themselves are built from natural materials, leaving a minimal impact on the landscape. You’ll enjoy traditional furnishings dating back to an era of refinery and finesse with open fireplaces, thatched roofing and large open verandas to take in the beautiful scenery presented on your door step.
