SIRIKOI

Sirikoi
Four Luxury Tented Rooms

Sirikoi has four luxury tented rooms that have been built and designed by Willie and Sue Roberts who have run tailor-made safaris throughout East Africa for over thirty years. Each of these spacious rooms has views of the waterhole from the veranda, a living area with a fireplace and an elegant bathroom with a Victorian bath and a shower. Two additional new luxury tents have recently been built and also have great views of the waterhole and surrounding bush. There is an elegant thatched dining area with open log fires and a large deck area with a superb outlook. A beautifully designed 18m pool is the perfect spot to watch game and birdlife. A secluded two bedroom house, made from wood, thatch and stone and with a large deck area is situated in a private corner of the camp near the wetlands where elephant and buffalo are regular visitors. The lodge also has a 20ft hide, which is a great spot for viewing the diverse landscape, having sundowners and stargazing.

Sirikoi is run from solar energy, has its own extensive organic vegetable and fruit garden, free range chickens and dairy and a crystal clear mountain spring providing all the lodge's water. The one acre organic garden supplies fresh daily produce and is the most prodigious of its type at any lodge or camp in Kenya. A huge selection of vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers grow in abundance including bananas, tree tomatoes, avocadoes, lemongrass and lilies. We are soon to have a wetland area for naturally purifying kitchen and laundry water, and a methane plant where animal bi products (cow dung) is used to cook the staff food and heat their water.

December-March & June-October

The best months for travelling to Kenya are June through the end of October and then December through the end of March. If you are wanting to see the Great Migration then I suggest the months of July, August and September, these are also the busiest times along with the Christmas holidays as this is when school holidays fall. If you prefer to travel when the game is still superb but it is not so busy then I recommend the following months, June, September, October, November, February, March, April and May!
Lion Tracking, Fishing, Horseback Rides, Nature Walks, Cultural Visits & Camel Safaris.

Fly Camps - Enjoy the beauty and solitude of remote destinations by flying into a secluded fly camp in northern Kenya for a night or two. With incredible unspoilt landscapes, we will erect a camp under shady Doum Palms and experience the tranquility and peace of a rarely visited land.

Lion Tracking - A few of the lions on Lewa are monitored so that important research information such as social structure, territory and feeding ecology can be evaluated. Guests can go out with the experienced trackers to locate the lions and help collate information about their movements and behaviour.

Fishing - There are some great trout fishing opportunities on Lake Alice and Lake Michelson within neighbouring Mount Kenya National Park. We can organise specialised fishing trips all over Kenya fishing for Marlin and Sailfin off the Lamu coastline to Nile Perch and Tilapia in Lake Turkana.

Helicopter trips - Just a 15 minute ride from Sirikoi by helicopter you can be circling the peaks of Mount Kenya - the second highest point in Africa. Remote and incredible destinations all over Kenya can be explored from the isolated desert dunes in the north to the spectacular flamingo lakes in the Great Rift Valley in the south.

Visit to Maasai Homesteads - Learn first-hand about the local customs, culture and daily lives of the Masai with a visit to a local village.

Biplane excursion - Enjoy the allure of the early aviation days when Karen Blixen and Denys Finch-Hatton flew around Kenya in a brand new Waco biplane. Based on the original model of the 1920's and 30's, the planes have room for two passengers to sit side by side for this nostalgic once-in-in-a-lifetime flying experience over an incredible African landscape.

Horseback riding - Enjoy the sounds and sights of the bush while on horseback.  Some game can be closely approached while riding a horse through stunning scenery and varied terrain making for an exciting excursion.

Camel safaris - This is predominantly a walking safari with camels to carry the camp and supplies led by Samburu tribesmen whose knowledge of the terrain has been passed through generations. A three to four hour walk in the morning with a stop for a bush breakfast is followed by a long rest during the heat of the day at your newly erected campsite. From here you can experience an evening bushwalk and a hot shower under the stars before falling asleep listening to the sounds of the African bush.

Local Info

Founded in 1995, the not-for-profit Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (LWC) spans 62,000 acres and serves as a catalyst for conservation across northern Kenya. Lewa holds 12% of Kenya's black rhino population and the largest single population of Grevy zebras in the world. Through the protection and management of endangered species, the initiation and support of community conservation and development programmes, and the education of neighboring areas in the value of wildlife, Lewa has become Kenya's leading model for wildlife conservation on private land. LWC is leading the way for low-impact conservation tourism resulting in direct benefits for communities across the region. One of LWC's fundamental objectives is to conserve threatened species within its area of operation and provide protected habitat for other species under pressure outside of LWC. LWC promotes conservation both within its boundaries and in the ecologically important community-owned areas to its North. LWC also provides support to anti-poaching operations in other private rhino sanctuaries and wildlife reserves in the Laikipia District and on Mount Kenya.
Sirikoi is a spectacular game lodge situated on its own private estate in the centre of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy on the northern slopes of Mount Kenya. Surrounded by an acacia grove and overlooking a natural waterhole fed from a mountain spring Sirikoi offers some of the best game viewing in East Africa.
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. A wide range of activities are offered such as helicopter trips, lion tracking, horseback riding, and visits to a local Maasai homestead. Offering unparalleled hospitality in breathtaking surroundings, Sirikoi is one of the outstanding lodges in Kenya where guests will be part of a unique African adventure.
