About Lewa Wilderness

The remarkable Lewa Wildlife Conservancy consists of a wide range of ecosystems, ranging from swamp to savannah; it supports a huge diversity of wildlife and is a sanctuary for many species, including black and white rhinos, giraffe and Grevy's zebra.

Lewa Wilderness Lodge is home to Will and Emma Craig who are the hosts, along with their team of professional guides. 

Lodge Details


A delightful luxury lodge with cottage-style accommodation.


The lodge is situated within the 60,000 acre Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, which uses a truly successful conservation model, recognised throughout Kenya. Resting on on the northern slopes of Mount Kenya, at roughly 1615 metres above sea level, this is not a malarial area.

Accommodation & Facilities

There are nine comfortable and spacious thatched cottages, all with en-suite bathrooms. Each cottage is individually and elegantly furnished with rustic, ranch-style furniture and woollen rugs that are made by local community workshops. There is a small fireplace in each room and electricity and hot water are available in the mornings and evenings.

Lewa Wilderness Lodge has a very cosy communal sitting room, where guests can enjoy pre-dinner drinks. Meals are shared around a long banqueting table in the open-air dining room.

Facilities include a salt-water swimming pool, riding stables and a clay tennis court.


Delicious food (much of which is supplied by the ranch and its organic vegetable garden), is served around the open-air banqueting table.


Day and night-time game drives operate in 4x4 vehicles, with guided bush walks, bush meals and sundowners also offered.
