Whatever you do... stay here if visiting Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. The owners and hosts, their managers and staff, are without exception, superb! You will arrive a stranger and leave a friend and what lovely friends to have. Wildlife viewing was amazing, the guiding was exceptional, rooms are more than comfortable... if like me, you will feel torn between going on... More

Thank you so much for taking time to review us and for such a fabulous review. We are really thrilled that you enjoyed staying with us.

A bunch (is that the correct collective noun?) of journalists spent two days and one night at Sirikoi in Lewa and came away with photos of two cheetah, of a crush of black and white rhinos, a dazzle of endangered Grevy's zebra and a tall tower of ten reticulated giraffes (yep, it's a tower) plus a confusion of Guinea fowl....

We spent a wonderful three nights at Sirikoi. We only wished that it had been much, much longer. From our arrival to our departure we were looked after superbly by Mat and Alice (the Managers) and their excellent team. We were very fortunate to stay in the supremely luxurious cottage with its vast open-air deck, perfect for game viewing. The... More

This was my second visit to Sirikoi and I could not have been more impressed by the location, guides, service, and food. Five stars aren't adequate for rating this fantastic place.

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.

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.

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.
