Located at the very heart of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, the house is set on top of a hill with extensive views over gentle rolling hills with Mount Kenya to the south and the rugged Mathews Range and the sacred mountain of Ol Olokwe to the north.
The accommodation at Lewa House is in the form of cottage style rooms which are spread out along the hillside, all looking to the expanse of wilderness to the north. There are 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 whilst still being exceptionally comfortable and spacious, with wonderful views across the surrounding landscape.
Power and hot water at Lewa House is provided by the sun and water comes directly from a spring that emerges on Lewa at the base of the Ngare Ndare forest, fed by the snows of Mt Kenya.
