Situated near the equator at the base of Mt. Kenya, Africa’s second tallest mountain, Lewa Wilderness Trails is one of Kenya's oldest and most private safari ventures.
The lodge has nine exclusive rooms: five cottages tucked into the hillside overlooking Lewa ’s Western Marania Valley, three family cottages set beautifully in the midst of green lawns and a flourishing garden.
Each room is luxuriously comfortable with it’s own rustic charm, while the relaxed atmosphere makes guests feel like they are visiting an old, family friend. Each of the rooms is different from each other, and all have a sitting room area with bar and open log fireplace as well as private en suite facilities
The garden rooms, or family cottages, are the original rooms that have been upgraded over the years. They are the nearest cottages to the main dining and sitting areas, consisting of two bedrooms attached by a comfortable sitting area with a bar and a cozy fireplace. Each bedroom has its own en suite facilities with a shower and running hot and cold water that is fresh from a spring fed by Mt. Kenya. These garden rooms are ideal for families, or for anyone who wants to be near the pool and the main part of the lodge.
The green lawns out front provide plenty of outdoor space to use for relaxing or for a game of football.
The Wilderness Trails food is deliciously home-grown and authentically home style. Each meal is a chance to taste how fresh, organic, wholesome food should be. Food is a family affair, as most of the produce comes seasonally from Lewa Wilderness Trails own farm. Anything else is sourced from local markets.
A tennis court, swimming pool and table tennis provide on site activity which is complemented by a well stocked shop, a game viewing balcony in the sitting room and a library for those that seek something a little more sedate.
