Tucked deep in the savannahs of Laikipia, Sirikoi Lodge – a small tented camp – is Kenya’s gem sitting in the vast Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Sirikoi Lodge oozes opulence coupled by wonderful views of Kenya’s wild from the comfort of beautifully decorated tented rooms. It is against this backdrop that Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards recently named Sirikoi Lodge ‘Best Resort in The World’ and ‘Best Safari Property in Africa’. For three years in a row, Sirikoi Lodge has won a gold medal in the eco-friendly category for its efforts towards conserving wildlife and the environment.The lodge taking up a couple of acres at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy came to be after its establishment by a British couple, Willie and Sue Roberts. Sirikoi is an elegant charm where you will have your leisure time surrounded by incredible wild animals chomping grass around the facility.
Buffalos and giraffes are in particular, a common sight around the lodge while wild dogs and herds of elephants pass by the lodge’s front every day. The lodge offers an exquisite 3-bedroom house with a modern touch but an African feel. There are also two-and-four-bedroom well-set tents.Sirikoi, through Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, takes its guests for games drives around the park which has some of the world’s endangered animals such as the reticulated giraffe, black and white rhino. Additionally, Lewa has the highest population of Grevy’s zebras in the world.
A luxury tent per night will cost from $260 to $2650 for Sirikoi House with a capacity of 6 people.
