Kenya’s Leading Safari Lodge 2020, 2020 Travelers' Choice Winner, Best Luxury Resort in the World 2019, Kenya's Leading Safari Lodge 2019, Condé Nast #1 Luxury Resort in the World AND #1 Safari Property in Africa 2019, GOLD List 2018 Africa's Leading Luxury Lodge, 2017 GOLD Eco-Rating 2017, 2018, 2019 As a small and intimate family-owned safari lodge, Sirikoi offers unrivalled exclusivity and charm. The four luxury tents, Sirikoi Cottage and private Sirikoi House are perfectly positioned along the spring-fed Sirikoi stream, immersed in nature with wildlife all around. Sirikoi resembles an 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. All the rooms are spacious and tastefully designed, with unique décor touches, a sitting area, big Victorian bathtubs, rain-showers, fireplaces and a private deck. Surrounded by 68,000 acres of pure wilderness of the renowned World Heritage Site, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, the location of the lodge is truly exceptional. With Kenya’s arid North to one side, and the lush foothills of Mount Kenya on the other, Sirikoi enjoys a beautiful spring-like climate year round. Days are as action-packed or as rejuvenating as desired, and Sirikoi offers a range of unique and adventurous activities for all ages to experience and explore the wilderness and wildlife. The wildlife on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is abundant and includes many endangered species such as black and white rhino, and the largest resident population of Grevy’s zebra in the world. Families of elephant have carved Sirikoi into their migratory routes and almost daily they can be seen just in front of the Sirikoi dining deck for hours at a time.

I had a once-in-a-lifetime stay at Sirikoi! It is such a special place. I have never been anywhere that feels like adventure, luxury and homely all wrapped into one. All the staff went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. The game drives were lead by talented guides and we got to learn lots about the bush on top of seeing lots of wildlife. I also really enjoyed doing a back of house tour and seeing the worlds best veggie garden. The food was delicious, the tents were heaven and overall just a fantastic experience. Would highly recommend visiting this place as it really is special. Can’t wait to come back again in the future!

We have had the opportunity to visit Sorikoi Lodge many times now, and I have to say they are seriously professional, and the staff is the best around! Everybody are extremly friendly and helpful and alwasy there to make sure you have everything you need! Everything from game drives to the amazing food to the management and all the staff, the entire oganisation is so amazing and you feel really spoilt when you are there!! A place I will recomment to everybody in the entire world to visit for a holiday! I am so looking forward to visit Sorikoi again now at the end of the month for 3 days! Best holiday possible!

Our experience was terrible please read this for your own good if you plan on staying there. To start we filled out their health questionaire stating our alergies and medical conditions (back problems hernia). Our guide decided to go off road anyway and I sprung my back. We requested a doctor and they said that 7pm was too late that we had to wait in pain until the next morning. Truth is for the doctor to come to the hotel it cost them 100$ and for us to go the next day 50$. This is the level of care you are going to get. They also lied to our faces about the fact, we have a statement from the doctor saying that he was ready the day before to come to assist us. When we left the day after the owner barely asked how I was doing and told us it was our job to make sure that the driver knew we had a back problem, turned around and left with her dog. Why do we fill out a health survey then? Are we also supposed to make sure the chef knows if we have any alergies or risk food poisoning? Unbelievable. Overall we cannot recommend to go to a place that while beautiful takes such poor care of any medical issue specially when in Africa you want to feel reassured you are taken care off. We also did not appreciate the rudeness or the lying. If anyone is interested we have full documented proof of any of the above.

There aren't enough superlatives to describe each amazing experience at Sirikoi. The team is kind, thoughtful, attentive, detail oriented, and highly professional. The location within the amazing Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is stunningly beautiful and the property is meticulously maintained. The food is fresh, healthy, carefully prepared, and always delicious. The guides, particularly James, are the best in the business. Simply put, the experience at Sirikoi is second to none. Each time I visit, I'm overjoyed to arrive, and sad to leave. This fantastic place always exceeds my very high expectations. Sirikoi Lodge offers what has to be one of the best experiences anywhere in the world. Thank you to Sue and the entire Sirikoi team for another wonderful visit. I look forward to returning as soon as possible.

After landing at the local landing strip, Sirikoi is a short 10 to 15 minute drive. Yet, by the time we reached camp, we had taken approximately 35 minutes and had seen more than 15-20 rhino, plus other wildlife. Amazing! When you reach Sirikoi, you might think that you have reached an oasis, Eden or some other paradise. The camp is bordered by a marsh and is lush due to its local springs and excellent conservation efforts. Trees, flowers, succulents and other plantings abound, offering a beautiful shade to protect against the bright sun. It is paradise. We were a group of eight people and occupied the three bedroom House and one tent. Annick, one of the camp managers, met us at the House and did the ‘check in’ amidst its cozy couches, lush backdrop and zebra walking by. All I can say about the House is ‘wow, wow, wow’! The interiors are open, beautiful and expansive. Zebras, giraffe and antelope frequently walk around the ‘backyard’ of the property - who needs to go in a vehicle? I can truly say that the House is the nicest property we have stayed in over the course of our many different safaris. One of the features everyone enjoyed about the house were the fires that were lit each night in the fireplaces in the living room, dining room and each of the bedrooms. The fires took the chill off each night and made everyone feel at home. Not only was the House comfortable, it also included dedicated staff which allowed to us to have our own private dinners and cocktails. Dan was our ‘butler’ who looked after us for the three days we were in the House and he could not have been more attentive and friendly. I should also note that all of the food was excellent and served buffet style. The main purpose for coming to Sirikoi was to see the wildlife. Our guides were Neela and Johnathan. Both guides applied their expert tracking capabilities and were able to show us lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, giraffe, zebra, and so much more… Both white and black rhinos are a bit of a specialty for the Lewa area, so if you have yet to see either, you should be nearly certain to spot one there! Again, we sincerely enjoyed our morning and evening game drives and it is quite possible that you will see the Big Five on your first day. I should also note that while we were at Sirikoi, they offered a ‘Back of House’ tour. George, the master gardener was our guide. It is amazing to see what George and his team accomplished at Sirikoi’s garden in such a short period of time, given the challenging conditions. It is interesting to note that Sirikoi produces approximately 95% of the vegetables it consumes - talk about farm to table! If you stay at Sirikoi, please take 30 mins after breakfast to take the tour - you will be impressed. We had many special moments that I know will stick in the collective memories of our group, but a few that stand out include: 1) Sirikoi set up a beautiful spot with tables, chairs, plates and linens in the bush one morning so that we could have breakfast and then carry on with our game drive. 2) Another morning, we had breakfast on the deck of the main lodge and were greeted by the resident giraffe Indihtu who greeted everyone at the table. 3) Annick arranged for lunch and cocktails out on the private deck overlooking the marsh - simply fabulous. 4) The infinity pool at Sirikoi is an absolute delight to use in the afternoon between game drives - again, you can watch a variety of wildlife walk by as you take a dip. 5) The property itself is beautiful, one morning we chose to sleep in, simply enjoy it and watch the wildlife come to us :-) As a final note, I would only say this…. We were so spoiled at the House and Sirikoi in general, that moving to a tented camp for our next stay was a challenge. Thank you to Annick, Johnathan, Neela and Dan for giving us such a truly special experience and everything you did for us - you will see us again!

We had an absolutely amazing and unforgettable stay here in February 2022. Caroline (one of the managers) welcomed us with her lovely personality and style and that feeling didn’t leave the entire time we were there. The food was delicious, especially lunch! On our “back of the house” tour we were introduced to George and his incredible organic garden that supplied such a wonderful bounty. Onesmus and Jonathan were our guide and spotter respectively, they created such an amazing and educational experience that we will never forget. Jamie took us up in the helicopter and enhanced what was already the trip trip of a lifetime with a visit to the Pukot tribe, a family home, and millions of flamingos. We’d like to thank Sue for creating such a magical place for us to start our adventure in Kenya. We cannot wait to return.

This lodge was a highlight of our safari in Kenya. Our guide Legay was very amiable and very knowledgeable about the abundant wildlife in the Lewa Conservancy. Additionally all the staff was extremely accommodating and the food was out of this world. Sue is an excellent host with interesting stories about the history of Lewa and Sirikoi! Definitely take her back of house tour if you have some extra time while on the grounds. Definitely would stay again next time I am in Kenya!

I first visited Sirikoi 3 years ago and have been trying to get back ever since. It was just as wonderful as I remembered it. It’s the people, both staff and guests, who make this place really special. Thank you to Caroline and Penny for making me feel so welcome, and to James for his expertise and great conversation on our game drives. This was my first trip since lockdown, and just what I needed to come home rested and rejuvenated. I only wish I could have stayed longer! Can’t wait to return again.

Our family of 5 adults stayed in the Private House for 3 wonderful nights...enjoying every minute!! The house is beautifully and tastefully designed - with a large living room, separate dinning area and "semi" outdoor den. The bedrooms are large, spacious and comfortable - complete with fireplace. The master bedroom even has an outdoor shower, which I found quite refreshing. Fresh flowers were in all the rooms and added that special touch. The House has it's own private viewing deck, overlooking the watering area where there was an ever changing group of animals ( Rinos, elephants, zebras, buffalo) to see. You could literally have a "game drive" without having to leave the comforts of the house/deck. The food was amazing! One of our group was a fairly picky eater, they catered to our dietary requirements exceptionally well. The House has a dedicated staff and chef - they were outstanding and spoiled our group with attention. They even provided a true bush breakfast, complete with flowers! Ngila was our guide and was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I stopped counting at 15 Rino, we even managed to see Sonja (the rhino with the longest horns I've witnessed).....and of course leopard, lions with a kill, elephants, grevys zebra, and the list continues. Sirikoi even has 2 resident Giraffes. Kiko stopped by each morning to say hello, while I was having morning coffee - truly special. Sirikoi offers more than just a safari, it offers a true "Out of Africa" Experience - one not to be missed. We are already starting to plan our next visit!
