Lewa House is an owner-run bush homestead located in the heart of the fantastic Lewa Conservancy near Mount Kenya in Central Kenya.

Being owner-run by Calum and Sophie McFarlane, whose children are the fifth generation of the family to live on Lewa, Lewa House offers a very home from home feel with relaxed, yet very efficient service. The accommodation is very comfortable, without being overly luxurious, with the two bedroomed cottages being ideal for families. The property has a warm and slightly old-school safari atmosphere, with communal meals which are hosted by Calum and Sophie. It is not a ‘busy’ property, and the overall ambience of the property is tranquil and relaxing, even when families are in residence. Easy access to the wonderful game viewing of Lewa make this a favourite property of ours.
