Sirikoi Lodge

As a small and intimate family-owned safari lodge, Sirikoi offers unrivalled exclusivity and charm. The four luxury tents, Sirikoi Cottage and private Sirikoi House are perfectly positioned along the spring-fed Sirikoi stream, immersed in nature with wildlife all around..Sirikoi resembles an eco-chic African home and while it offers a sure sense of luxury and high level of service, it manages to be welcoming, comfortable and unpretentious. All the rooms are spacious and tastefully designed, with unique décor, a private sitting area, big Victorian bathtubs, rain-showers, fireplaces and a private deck.

Surrounded by 68,000 acres of pure wilderness of the renowned Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, a World Heritage Site, the location of the lodge is truly exceptional. With Kenya’s arid north on one side, and the lush foothills of Mount Kenya on the other, Sirikoi enjoys a beautiful spring-like climate year round.

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy has many endangered species including black and white rhino, Reticulated giraffe and the largest resident population of Grevy’s zebra in the world. Families of elephant have carved Sirikoi into their migratory routes and for hours at a time they can be seen almost daily just in front of the Sirikoi dining deck.
