I live in Nairobi and I find that Lewa House is the perfect weekend getaway from the city. It is about a 4 hrs drive from Gigiri (the road is excellent the entire way); once you get there you will be glad you made the effort. The view is spectacular (including Mt Kenya). The rooms are lovely. The guides are... More

Lewa House was our first experience with a safari camp. Let me say that it was perfect in every way! Rooms were beautiful with endless scenery. The guides were so fun, friendly and knowledgeable about the area and its wildlife. Rufus is the best! He made sure we saw the lions before we departed camp to head back to Nairobi!... More

We spent four days at Lewa house on recommendation. The place is really well run and well equipped. The trip to Ngare Ndare forest was well worth it and the walking safari the best we have done by a long way. Riding with the game was a first for us all and best of all we were able to leave...

I'd been following Lewa Conservancy for years, so I wanted to see it for myself. And it completely blew me away. It was magical from the moment I landed on the tiny airstrip and just kept getting better the longer I was there. The accommodations were splendid, including a bubble bath out under the stars. The game drives were the... More

Stayed 3 nights this January with Sophie and Callum, being guided on the game drives by Rufus. The experience was just excellent and outstanding. Great Location, friendly and interesting encounters, great services, excellent food, great game drives. Enjoyed also the bush diner and the game walk with Callum. A must! Lewa House was recommended to me by friends and I... More

Strongly recommend Lewa House and urge everyone to support the Lewa Conservancy!!! We had a wonderful time at Lewa. The rooms were beautiful, large, and so well kept! Giraffes even came up to eat right in front of our room. The game drives were wonderful! Our driver Chris was spectacular. He was so friendly, great at spotting things, and answering... More

We have had the most incredible time (5 nights) at Lewa House. The accommodation was first class, totally solar powered with plenty of hot running water and power points in the rooms. The food was superb - plenty of variety, using local produce and beautifully presented. We had a guide who was both knowledgeable and interesting, who was enthusiastic about... More

Lewa House is a very special place. It is set in a beautiful location. The rooms are so nice and the service is impeccable. The food is amazing! But perhaps the best part about Lewa House are Calum and Sophie. They are very gracious hosts. Sophie made calls that allowed us to see everything we wanted to see in Lewa... More

Lewa House has a fabulous lodge and formal dining room, all under thatch roof, with 180 degree open views of the conservancy. Wifi is in the lodge. The villas are large and gorgeous. The jeep rides are bumpy!! But our guides/spotters were terrific and we saw so many animals. We had a surprise picnic lunch under an Acacia tree mid-safari... More

The owners, Sophie and Calam, couldn't have been nicer. They were so proud of their country and their establishment. The food was excellent and the accommodations were superior. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to safari in Africa.
