Lewa Wilderness

The Craig family home is seated on the eastern side of the active Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Northern Kenya. Guests have been visiting the family’s 8 cottages here for decades, enamoured by the charming décor and character exuded by the private space. Each cottage features fireplaces and verandas. Meals are shared in the sitting room in an interactive atmosphere, or one may cozy up on their own near the fire. Relish the home-cooked cuisine and discuss the upcoming activities, which include trips to the salt water pool or riding with the horses at the stable. If you need a bit of a challenge, try the clay tennis courts. Also take in all the knowledge and understanding that comes with being surrounded by nature’s best friends.
