Lewa Wildlife Conservation

Sirikoi Lodge

Overview

A Rhino Sanctuary

This family-owned safari lodge is a shining beacon for wildlife conservation across Africa. Nestled between the Kenya’s arid North to one side and the lush foothills of Mount Kenya, Sirikoi enjoys a beautiful spring-like climate all year round. Lewa is world heritage site and an award-winning model for community conservation renowned for its work protecting black and white rhino.

Sirikoi is a charming 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. With four luxury tents, a two-bedroom private cottage and three-bedroom private house, Sirikoi can accommodate groups of all sizes.

Days at Sirikoi can be action packed or as relaxing as desired. The lodge offers a wide range of unique and adventurous activities for all ages to partake in and explore the wilderness. Head out into the bush for morning, evening and night game drive in your own exclusive vehicle. Or enjoy breakfast with giraffes from the comfort of an armchair on the Sirikoi deck that overlooks a bustling waterhole full of wildlife.

Activities

  • Sirikoi Kenya riding

    Horse riding

    Saddle up and ride out into the Lewa plains. This is a fantastic way to get super close and personal with giraffes and zebras and view the scenery from a different perspective than that from a vehicle. The horses allow you greater mobility to get into even wilder areas of the bush.

  • Sirikoi Kenya 14 Helicopter

    Helicopter Excursions

    Flying over the diverse landscape of desert and rocky outcrop further up north will be a true highlight of the trip. Head up Mount Kenya over the snow-tipped peaks for a spot of fly-fishing in some of the most remote and untouched areas.

    Ngare Ndare Forest Visit

Conservation

A passion for wildlife and commitment to conservation and community development are at the heart of the Sirikoi philosophy. The Lodge has been influential in Rhino conservation in Kenya and provides vital habitat for the endangered black rhino by protecting woodland from creating an elephant exclusions zone. Guests staying at Sirikoi can go behind the scenes of the ongoing conservation and meet members of the anti-poaching team. The key to Sirikoi’s success is engagement with local communities, achieved through the initiation and support of community conservation and development programmes, and the education of neighbouring communities on the value of wildlife.

Community and Culture

Sirikoi contributes significant amounts towards Lewa’s conservation, community, education and health projects. Employing people from local communities allows them financial freedom to purchase land and houses. The lodge supports the local communities and economy through trade purchasing as much as possible from sources nearby.

Footprint

Sirikoi has always strived to operate in harmony with their beautiful environment. The lodge runs off solar power, taps all water from a natural spring, uses natural cleaning products and toiletries wherever possible, follows a strict recycling policy and grows their own fruits and vegetables. As a result of these efforts, Sirikoi has been honoured with a Gold level Eco-rating for the last three years running.
