Lewa Wilderness

Lewa Wilderness is one of Kenya’s original private safari experiences. For forty years guests have been coming to this remarkable region to be part of an adventure like no other. Those four decades have seen that passion passed down through the Craig family who proudly continue to run Lewa Wilderness today.Lewa Wilderness is one of the original family homes and is still home to Will and Emma Craig.    Guests can relax by the fire in the cozy sitting room and share meals around a long banquet table in the open-air dining room.   Natural springs, home-raised livestock, and a 5-acre organic garden are transformed by skilled chefs into incredible, healthy and delicious food.There are ten comfortable thatched cottages with spacious ensuite bathrooms, fireplaces in the sitting areas and verandahs.


Hillside Cottages

The Hillside cottages take advantage of the stunning northerly views from Lewa. On a clear day, which is most days, the view stretches away giving a true perspective of just how remote this setting is. Each room is quite different in its layout and sleeping configuration and takes advantage of the uneven hill side to form unusual shapes which load them with character. Every room has en suite facilities and its own private sitting area, bar and veranda.

Family Cottages or Garden Rooms

The Garden rooms at Lewa Wilderness are nearest the main areas and are built in pairs with private en suite facilities and a shared veranda and sitting room. The layout of these rooms is ideal for a family or those who do not want to walk too far as they are nearer the main facilities. The rooms are flanked and fronted by well kept lawns which give families that extra outdoor space to use. There is a view down to the bush pool and onto the Lewa Wilderness valley beyond. These Garden rooms were built to cater for families and remain very close to the heart of everything that happens here.

A video doesn’t really do this experience justice – you really must do it yourself, but this video gives an idea of just how thrilling a ride in Will Craig’s Waco biplane will be. And it’s yellow, just like in “Out of Africa”. An optional extra for guests at Lewa Wilderness
