Lewa Wilderness

Lewa Wilderness is an established bush homestead property located in the wonderful Lewa Conservancy near Mount Kenya in central Kenya.

Lewa Wilderness is an old favourite and has a very warm, established feel to it. The main homestead, separate central dining/lounge areas and mature gardens create a traditional bush homestead ambiance. Most meals are communal and the management and staff are very friendly and attentive. It can be a pretty social place at times and is suited to travellers who are happy to meet other guests and enjoy sharing their stories. The accommodation is very comfortable and spacious, without being modern or contemporary, with many of the cottages being ideal for families. Lewa Wilderness is a great all round option for enjoying the fantastic game viewing of Lewa combined with the bubbly atmosphere of the lodge.
