The Sirikoi is one of the top lodges in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in large part due to its owners, the Roberts family, who have 50 years of experience in the safari industry. Sirikoi is small and intimate with the two-bedroom Sirikoi Cottage and three-bedroom Sirikoi House on one side of the property and four tents on the other. Sirikoi Cottage and Sirikoi House are great options for families with children of any age. The tents, on the other hand, are more exposed to the elements and small, and are best for couples, although a child aged six and up would be able to stay in one of the tents with their parents. Each tent has a private deck with a Victorian-style bathtub and rain-shower. Sirikoi’s common areas scattered about the propertyfeel very homey, traditional and unpretentious.

You feel truly one with nature when staying at Sirikoi. As the lodge is based along the spring-fed Sirikoi stream, guests are surrounded by wildlife. At breakfast, lunch and dinner it wouldn’t be unusual to spot rhinos close by drinking out of the stream, and at night, prepare yourself for a veritable serenade of animal sounds  - it can actually get quite loud! The lodge is compact making it easy to walk between your tent and the main area for meals, but you must always be escorted at night as many animals call Sirikoi their home base. These animals include buffalo which are most likely to be seen at Sirikoi in the evenings.

Although the lodge is in need of renovation, it has undeniably charm, strong service, and great guiding. The property is owned and overseen by Sue Roberts who has a strong passion for botany, and the result of her passion is the stunning, manicured grounds around the lodge. She also created an organic vegetable garden, which is the source of Sirikoi’s fruit and vegetables. The property has an infinity pool that looks out on the conservancy, as well as a massage tent and gym. Activities from the lodge include game drives, rhino tracking, bush walks, horseback and camel safari, cultural visits, conservancy educational activities, and a visit to the Ngare Ndare Forest Park for hiking.
