A double guest cottage set in the garden of the main house, near to a perennial fresh water spring and outflowing river, on the boundary of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Bird-life and antelopes abound in a setting full of indigenous and exotic flowering plants and trees. Host Alan has 50 years experience as safari guide and can be hired should guests wish to experience nearby Samburu/Buffalo Springs Reserves, or a walk on Mt. Kenya. Maggie is his partner and supervises the kitchen.

This is a great place in the wild if you need a break from the city. It is within the conservancy. You will enjoy watching birds, squirrels and antelopes grazing by the balcony. Maggie is a great host, she offers home made meals at affordable costs. Remember to arrive before 1800…

Response from Alan And Maggie:
Thank you Moraa, great to meet you both. Just a slight correction in your understanding of our position re the conservancy. We privately own our land which is only separated from Lewa by a fence which the animals can all get through. Lewa is protected by its own security fence which also goes round us and rangers who are highly trained to protect the rhinos. We cooperate with the conservancy at all times and make our own land as welcoming as possible for wildlife, and of course guests, but no strangers are allowed to wander freely at any time, especially at night hence our strict rules on entry and exit to our home. Thank you for your review. Karibu tena.
