As we arrived at Sirikoi the first thing we saw was emerald green lawns, a turquoise pool and an Ele peacefully grazing just meters from the pool. Sirikoi really is an oasis in the wild savanah plains of Lewa. Over the years i have stayed in many different lodges throughout Kenya, and Sirikoi is by far the best. We were made to feel part of the family. Amory (the general manager) and JJ looked after us so well and so did all the staff.
The food was delicious and all veggies and fruit are grown in an amazing 1 acre organic garden. We munched our way around the garden trying tree tomatoes, strawberries, mulberries, cape goose berries and guavas.
We ate outside, on wooden decking, under an awning amongst the yellow fever trees and what I was amazed about was there were so few mozzies. In fact I didn't use any mosquito repelleant and wasn't bitten at all.
The game drives were spectacular. We saw Black rhino mating, as well as white Rhinos, lions and a leopard, Oryx and Grants gazelle as well as the beautiful Grevy Zebra.
Our tent was very comfy and luxurious and early morning tea came spot on time.
Sirikoi all seems rather like a heavenly dream. A lodge not to be missed.
