Set in a shady acacia grove overlooking a natural waterhole, Sirikoi offers some of the best game viewing in East Africa. 

Distant hills appear from the desert to the north and Mount Kenya provides a magnificent backdrop.  Elevated between 4,500-7,500 feet, the landscape includes mountainous regions, open grasslands, indigenous forest, riverine valleys and an extremely diverse range of soil, plant and animal life. 

Evening sundowners with incredible views of distant mountain ranges; delicious meals served under the stars next to a roaring fire and the sounds of animals in camp late at night are just a small part of this magical experience.

Sirikoi accommodates its guests in four extravagant tented rooms that are raised off the ground on wooden platforms.  Private verandas look out onto the waterhole and a sitting room area at the front of the tent is the perfect spot for guests to curl up and read a book in the afternoon, whilst watching the wildlife moving around the lawn. 

In addition it has two beautifully designed houses – Sirikoi Cottage and Sirikoi House. Sirikoi Cottage is tucked away in a secluded area of the camp with two bedrooms, its own dining & sitting room, small kitchen and a large deck area overlooking a popular wildlife waterhole.  Ideal for two couples or a family with two children, guests can play backgammon on the terrace whilst warthogs dig for roots, and enjoy private dinners in the dining room. Sirikoi House is a magnificent, entirely private house with a main dining & sitting room; a large veranda and fireplace; a separate master bedroom suite and a cottage comprising of two large bedrooms.  The house has a separate kitchen, private entrance and its own vehicle.  The house is an exclusive retreat for families and groups of friends, who wish to be independent and escape to a little piece of Africa that is entirely theirs for the duration for their stay.

Every bedroom at Sirikoi has its own open log fireplace and en-suite bathroom with a free-standing Victorian bathtub and a separate shower. 

Sirikoi has a beautifully kept organic vegetable garden and the food is freshly prepared in the kitchen every day with fruit and vegetables from the garden, eggs from the flock of chickens and milk from their small herd of dairy cows.  Menus vary according to the availability of ingredients in the garden in order to create delicious and healthy cuisine.  Meals are mainly served outside under the trees, and in the evenings next to the fire under a starlit night.  Inverters provide electricity 24-hours a day and Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout the camp. 

Wildlife is abundant and includes elephant, reticulated giraffe, Grevy & Burchell’s zebra and a variety of antelope including gerenuk, greater kudu and oryx.  Over 10% of Kenya’s critically endangered black rhino population lives on the Conservancy.  Lewa also has the largest resident population of endangered Grevy’s zebra in the world, at about 370.  There are 70 mammal species including the Big Five: lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo.  There are roughly equal numbers of black and white rhino making the latest count around 112.  Birdlife numbers over 350 species, including the Somali ostrich, Kori bustard, and lilac breasted roller. 

At night-time zebra, impala, waterbuck and buffalo often move into camp to graze on the lawn providing incredible night sounds.  Whilst during the day, the 18m horizon pool is never without views onto animals grazing in the near distance.
