Lewa House Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, Kenya
Situated on the northern foothills of Mt. Kenya, Lewa House is set on the 65,000 acre privately owned Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Set on top of a hill with an engaging panoramic view of the rolling landscape of the Conservancy, Lewa House overlooks the luggas (valleys) and hills, with the horizon rising to the eye-catching views of the Mathews range and the sacred mountain of the Samburu, Ol Lolokwe.
All income generated by Lewa House is directly reinvested towards Lewa’s conservation and community projects. A team of dedicated and well-trained guides, staff and rangers look after Lewa House.
