overview

The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya is not only home to endangered Grevy’s zebra, and black and white rhino but it is also a pristine World Heritage Site. All this natural beauty and abundance is matched at Sirikoi, an intimate camp that prides itself on attention to detail, superlative service and an astonishing array of activities, including flips over the Magado Salt Pans, Lake Turkana (known as the Jade Sea), Mount Nyiru and the Ewaso Nyiro River.

Sleeping only 16 guests in tented rooms, a 2-bedroom cottage and an exclusive-use private house, you will be spoilt for choice at Sirikoi. In addition to excellent game viewing – Lewa is home to 10 percent of Kenya’s remaining black rhino population – you can enjoy hiking and quad biking in the Ngare Ndare Forest, which has waterfalls fed by Mount Kenya and a 400m-long walkway in the tree canopy. There are also interesting cultural excursions to Kargi and the Rift Valley, where you can meet the Pokot and Rendille people, respectively.

Back at camp, relax with in-room massages, horse riding, guided bush walks and tremendous meals carefully prepared with fresh organic produce from Sirikoi’s extensive kitchen garden. Before sundowners, enjoy a long soak in your Victorian ‘tub with a view’, a chilled glass of Moet & Chandon to hand.

Dining

Sirikoi has an extensive kitchen garden that provides the chefs with everything from organic lettuce and giant mushrooms to free-range eggs for fluffy omelettes cooked up in the bush after a morning game drive. Meals are very varied and feature dishes like chicken curry, tenderloin done to perfection and bone-in pork chops, not to mention vegetarian pizzas. The garden also supplies the camp with fresh flowers, an unusual touch on safari.

Luxury Tent

There are three types of accommodation at Sirikoi designed to best suit your needs. All rooms have Cinnabar Green amenities, double vanities, hairdryers, wardrobes and safes.

There are four luxury tented rooms with double or twin beds. Each is raised off the ground with a private verandah overlooking a popular waterhole. All have cosy sitting areas with open fireplaces and en suite bathrooms with both showers and Victorian bathtubs, which also have views to the grazing game.
