Luxurious House, Cottages and Earth Pods in the heart of Kenya's Laikipia Plateau

Lewa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with some of the best game viewing in the whole of East Africa. It’s home to 350 bird species and 70 mammal species so you’ll have a great chance to see all of the ‘big five’ — lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo and rhinos — well as specialised northern species:  Reticulated giraffe, Somali ostrich, Gerenuk and Beisa oryx.

Our dramatic, thatched main house is the focal common area, with the accommodation being separate cottages around the grounds, each with unique views of Kenya’s Northern Frontier.

If you’re traveling as a family and want to be close to each other, a thatched, family cottage is perfect for you.  Part of the original house the cottages are built using the traditional Lewa architecture of rough stone walls and thatched roofs and are furnished with beautiful rough-hewn hardwood furniture.

The latest additions to Lewa House are four rooms (or earth pods.) Their novel architecture is designed to disappear into the landscape, collect and store rainwater and maintain an even temperature. Think Flintstones! They have a simple, elegant décor that compliments their views over the Northern Frontier of Kenya.
