Lewa Wilderness Location Map

Situated near the base of Mount Kenya – Africa’s second tallest mountain – Lewa Wilderness is one of Kenya’s oldest and most private safari ventures. The Craig family has passed down from one generation to the next a distinct passion for wildlife, conservation and tourism, and they proudly continue to run Lewa Wilderness lodge and Walking Wild camel safaris. This place is as much a home as it is a truly unique and personal safari experience.

The advantage of being located in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is that guests are surrounded by rich game viewing opportunities without the crowds. There is a very good chance of seeing all of the Big Five and Lewa is one of the only game parks where visitors are almost guaranteed to see the endangered black and white rhinos while on safari. With the backdrop of snow-capped Mount Kenya and the diversity of scenery from open plains, rolling hills, valleys, escarpments and rivers, Lewa is a magical place to game drive for the ultimate Kenyan safari experience.

Game viewing, however, is not just done by vehicle. Other activities on offer include guided walks, scenic flights, horse back riding, and even camel riding.

The lodge has 9 exclusive rooms - 6 thatched cottages tucked into the hillside overlooking Lewa’s Eastern Marania Valley, and 3 thatched garden cottages set in the beautiful green lawns. The hillside cottages were built to capture the stunning views out over the valley and the sound of the river below where elephants, giraffe, rhino, zebra and more all come to drink. Each cottage has a cosy sitting area and fireplace, and a private outdoor verandah where you can enjoy a morning coffee whilst watching the sunrise. The garden cottages are closest to the main house and each consists of 2 en-suite bedrooms joined by a comfortable sitting area with a bar and cosy fireplace - making them perfect for families.
