Elewana Kifaru House is the jewel of the famous Lewa Conservancy, home to East Africa’s most thriving population of black and white rhinos – in fact, it takes its name from the Swahili word for rhino. The resident rhinos share the plains with the single largest population in the world of the critically endangered Grevy’s zebra.
With a watering hole near Elewana Kifaru House and the distant plains stretching out beyond it, the camp is a haven of luxury amidst wild habitats that are home to more than 70 different animal species and over 440 bird species. It’s a warm and welcoming home hidden away in the pristine African wilderness, with dramatic views of Mount Kenya to the south and the promise of adventures to come in the arid lands of Tassia and Il Ngwesi.
Recognizing the value of time well spent with family and friends, the Elewana Collection introduces discerning travelers to East Africa through impeccably designed lodges that invite true relaxation, as well as the thrill of a real adventure. Complementing their locations in prime game-viewing areas, on quiet white-sand beaches or even in a coffee plantation, are lavish comforts, including fresh cotton sheets, elegant rooms and gourmet meals. Family-friendly, individually styled and exuding warm and personalized hospitality, the lodges are a savvy blend of high-class safari and low-impact tourism. Guests are encouraged to become part of the local community and conservation projects, thereby returning home with a piece of East Africa instilled in their hearts forever.
