what an amazing weekend! i spent last weekend at lewa house with sophie, callum and family and had such an amazing time. just on the drive from the entrance to the lodge i saw elephants, giraffes, zebras, impalas, etc. we later saw lions, rhinos and cheetahs. our guide was funny and knowledgable and the lodge staff made sure we were well fed and even put hot water bottles in our beds to keep us warm at night. a highlight for me was drinking morning tea on the veranda of our hut while a herd of zebra snacked nearby. i also loved that we encountered few other tourists at the conservancy so it felt like we had all of lewa to ourselves.

Many thanks for your wonderful review. We are glad you had a great time and Lewa House. Being at 5,500 feet altitude makes for warm days and cool nights - the hot water bottles are a little slice of heaven in the evenings. Kind regards, Sophie, Calum and the Lewa House team.

I stayed at Lewa House as part of a family holiday in December 2011. The setting of the house was simply beautiful and the service second to none. From the game drive after we arrived at the airstrip to delicious food throughout our stay, my commendations to the staff for their efforts in making this a wonderful trip. Housekeeper Rose, butler Michael and our safari guide Jesse all deserve a special mention for their hard work, knowledge and attention to detail. I would recommend this to any family or group of friends looking to plan a holiday in Lewa.
