My wife and I could not have been happier with our stay. We had in mind a safari camp where we would spoil ourselves - and Sirikoi met our high expectations. Great accommodation, food, service and management. And amazing wildlife experience in the hands of a quality, professional and service-oriented guide. The benefit of being in a conservancy is that...

Its difficult to summarize the experience of staying at this "lodge" (which is in reality not a lodge but a collection of luxury tents and "cottages"), because the experience is so overwhelming. Unlike staying at a typical lodge (where you are more or less an anonymous guest staying in a bedroom as part of a large building), at this tented... More

I just had a quick look at the rating on here and have noticed 74 5/5 ratings and one poor sod who has voted otherwise! I am fascinated to know what grabbed his goat!

Most remarkable and emotion-evoking place I've ever been. Sights, sounds, smells, critter viewing, hospitality and splendor are simply too over-the-top to describe. Just go - you'll have no regrets and will soon start planning your next trip.

Hi Nelson. Thanks so much for giving us such a fabulous review! We are so glad that Sirikoi lived up to your expectations. Please come and visit again soon.

We have been going to Kenya and all over Africa for the last twenty years and every trip we have made has been filled with incredible moments; but Sirikoi had a special beauty and peacefulness that I hope many people will get a chance to experience.

we were so fortunate to stay here during the Safaricom Marathon. We saw the big five in one day, The service was amazing and we had the best game driver ever. I don't know how he spotted the cheetahs. But they were amazing.

First, the experience. We were greeted at the runway by our driver and two young Masai warriors, Peter and Lagai (sp?) who were fantastic with our kids. Literally within 10 minutes we are looking across a field at both a black and white rhino simultaneously. Our guide was going crazy telling us how rare it was to see both at... More

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
