Lewa Wilderness is one of Kenya’s oldest 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 en suite bathrooms, fireplaces in the sitting areas and verandahs.
Activities to take part in while staying at Lewa Wilderness include game drives, game walks, go on a camel safari, horseback riding, visit the nearby Ngare Ndare Forest and waterfall and fly in a chartered plane over forests, herds of game and treetops. There is a very good chance of seeing all of the “Big Five” and Lewa is one of the only game parks where visitors are almost guaranteed to see the endangered black and white rhinos.
