This is a perfect retreat for any large group or family and offers utter seclusion in what is, after all, a relatively small wildlife conservancy. The cottages all feature good sized rooms with en-suite bathrooms and have good sized windows through which to gaze in the morning. With the indigenous trees casting shadows on the manicured gardens and the park on your doorstep this is a perfect place from which to explore for a few days.
Lewa House - The Details
Lewa Wildlife Conservancy re-invests all the profits generated from tourism into the core programmes. By staying in any one of their three properties you will help thousands of dedicated people from different backgrounds and cultures to improve their lives, give their children a future whilst at the same time ensuring Africa’s wildlife has a home and future. A wonderful Africa Safari even for the most intrepid traveller. Through Lewa’s community programme these communities are able to access clean drinking water, affordable health care services and an education for their children. In this way a visit to Lewa is not only a memorable holiday but a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a difference.
Lewa House 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 property has a main building with a lounge and dining area, opening up to the charmingly furnished stretch veranda with its own special vista across the plains of Northern Kenya. A short walk away there are three large cottages each with a double and a twin room, making the property suitable for up to twelve people.
All the cottages have en-suite bathrooms plus a private veranda where guests can sit in the cool of the evening to enjoy the starlit African skies. A large swimming pool overlooking the waterhole with a thatched bar area for those all important sundowners are also yours to enjoy at Lewa House. Eating and relaxing takes place in the spacious lounge and dining areas with comfortable sofas, an open fire, fresh flowers, paintings, carvings and piles of coffee table books to read.
