Elewana Kifaru House

Discover Elewana Kifaru House

Elewana Kifaru House is located within the world-famous Lewa Conservancy in Kenya's Laikipia Plateau. The conservancy is home to East Africa's healthiest black and white rhino populations and Kifaru House appropriately takes its name from the Swahili word for rhino.

Kifaru House has 5 charming thatched cottages tucked away in an oasis of vibrant lawns, filled with birdsong. All have well-appointed bedrooms, with four-poster beds and generous en-suite bathrooms. The comfortable sitting room with well-stocked bar and elegant dining area extend out to a large, comfortably furnished terrace. Here, you can enjoy a sunny breakfast al fresco and watch the busy goings-on at the waterhole below, or later choose to relax by the picturesque infinity pool and enjoy the magnificent views over the distant plains.
