Sirikoi

Lewa Conservancy

Sirikoi Lodge
Sirikoi Lodge is surrounded by 68,000 acres of the pure wilderness of Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, and the location of the lodge is truly exceptional.
The wildlife on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is abundant and includes many rare and endangered species such as reticulated giraffe, black and white rhino, and the largest resident population of Grevy’s zebra in the world. Our guests also enjoy frequent leopard, cheetah and lion sightings. Families of elephant have carved Sirikoi into their migratory routes and almost daily they can be seen just in front of the Sirikoi deck for hours at a time.

Ol Lentille

Laikipia

Sanctuary at Ol Lentille
Staying here is, notably, a “holiday” and there is downtime to enjoy the numerous unique and special activities that the lodge and Laikipia offer. Your stay is not the safari format of game drives every morning and evening (yes you can do this if you want) but as most guests combine us with the Masai Mara where they will be in cars for the duration of their stay we want to show our guests the space and isolation of our stunning location. We often don’t even put guests in a car and prefer to do walking safaris and other activities that Laikipia is renowned for. Guided by Samburu and Maasai warriors this is a very special journey into their ancient lands.

Lewa Wilderness

Lewa Conservancy

Lewa Wilderness
The lodge has nine exclusive rooms: six thatched cottages tucked into the hillside overlooking Lewa’s Eastern Marania Valley, and three thatched garden cottages set in the beautiful green lawns. Each cottage is tastefully decorated with some of the Craig’s own antique and handmade furniture, giving each rustic charm and the character of a ranch homestead.
The leafy and affluent suburb of Karen sits to the South West of Nairobi towards the foot of the Ngong Hills. Karen still remains largely unspoilt by over-development or traffic jams and is an attractive and peaceful place to stay away from the city centre which is easily accessed via ever-improving ring roads and bypasses.
After a long journey, take a refreshing dip in the pool or wander through the calm oasis of the beautifully landscaped gardens to sit by the river. Airport transfers, game drives and excursions can also easily be arranged. The cosy home, built initially as the private residence of the owner, is fully furnished with WiFi, back up generator guaranteeing 24/7 electricity supply, a solar heated swimming pool and fresh borehole water. Delicious freshly prepared breakfast, lunch and evening meals are available to all guests.

Lewa House

Arijuju

Borana Conservancy

Arijuju
Arijiju lies low on the land. The building behaves as though it has always been on that warm Kenyan hillside with living grassed roofs that move with the air and connect it into the earth and forest. It is there but not there. Partly sculpted into the rock-bed, its subtle entrance opens into a fragrant, greened space with generous Swahili curves and an air of monastic calm. Walls of stone built on stone create vaulted walkways that lure you into cool shade and lead you along earth paths towards a simply luxurious gym, spa and hammam, dappled suntraps and Lamu daybeds. Alongside a gnarled African Olive tree, a slice of pool hangs over the untamed wild of the Sieku valley in the Borana Conservancy – a thriving piece of the game-rich Kenyan Highlands and a sanctuary for adventure.
