Sirikoi is perfection to the very last detail. Tucked away in the gorgeous Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, it is situated under shady acacias and along the lush marshes of the Sirikoi River. This meant incredible game viewing during evening sundowners on the deck and in the mornings from our tent. The most difficult thing about our stay was dividing our time... More

We so enjoyed meeting you and we look back with great fondness to your time here with us. The hunting dog were a great highlight as was dancing under the stars, so glad both happened while you were here! We look forward to your return in the not too distant future. More

My girlfriend and I returned to Sirikoi after 5 years of being away and it was every bit as wonderful as it was when we left it. Sirikoi truly is my favorite place in the world and every day there is a very unique and special experience. First, for the wildlife as this is why most visitors will come to... More

If it were possible to give 6 stars, I would do it. Sirikoi is outstanding in every respect. The accommodation was luxurious, food was stellar (fruit and veggies are grown in their own garden and were amazing), our guide was fantastic, and the hospitality from the owners down to the porters was fantastic. I cannot think of anything about our... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our three days at Sirikoi. It is an enchanting property and the Lewa conservancy is a very special place. Game drives are as interesting and enjoyable as the Mara and the rhinos are amazing. There are many luxurious and over-the-top lodges in east and south Africa, but none that we have visited with the charm and ambiance... More

We are thrilled that you named Sirikoi as your favourite Lodge. You also mentioned that none of the other lodges you visited had the charm and ambience of Sirikoi which is very special for us to hear, thank you! I will pass on your thanks to the staff and Natasha. Very Many thanks again from The Sirikoi Team. More

Myself and my boyfriend spent two nights at Sirikoi and loved every minute. It seemed there was never a moment when an animal could not be seen in the marsh in front of camp or drinking at the water hole. The grounds are truly beautiful with manicured green lawns, yellow fever trees, grazing impala and chirping birds. They have an... More

Thank you for your great review of Sirikoi. We are so pleased that as a game drive finale you saw the nine wild dogs, they are so special. We are hoping they may den down nearby as there is so much game for them, they would be foolish not to! We loved having you to stay and hope to see... More

This is an extraordinary setting near Mt Kenya where you can see rare white rhino, beautiful Grevy's zebra, elephants and dine like a Queen. In fact England's future Queen, Princess Kate, got engaged very near here; you can visit that same remote Lake Rutundu cabin on the slopes of Mt. Kenya. For luxury accommodations, at Sirikoi there are splendid large... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Sirikoi, we were made to feel extremely welcome and could not have been looked after better. Our tent was wonderful and the bathroom as good as any you would find in a 5* hotel. It was such a treat to come back at night to find the fire lit and a hot water bottle... More

First, I must start with saying that I was hesitant to travel to Kenya for this vacation due to all the bad press that has been spread throughout the USA and Canada. My reluctance was totally unfounded. Flying into Nairobi, there is a fever check of every passenger, not to mention they banned all flights from any ebola stricken countries... More
