Sirikoi Lodge is set in a forest of large fever trees overlooking a waterhole in the Lewa Conservancy in northern Kenya. The waterhole is part of a swamp that receives water from Mt Kenya which surfaces in nearby springs. The lodge has a spacious, shady location with great views of the wildlife that regularly visits the waterhole and that feeds on the lush vegetation of the swamp. Thanks to the area’s extraordinary biodiversity and natural beauty, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and the Ngare Ndare forest were recognized as part of the Mount Kenya World Heritage Site in 2013 as designated by UNESCO.
Accommodation & Facilities
The lodge has four beautifully designed tents, each with a large en-suite bathroom with a free standing bath, a shower and a flush loo. An unusual feature of the tents is the fireplace inside each one offering guests some warmth and atmosphere on chilly nights. The lodge offers a lovely sitting room and a very spacious outside dining area. Every room is decorated with magnificent fabrics and pictures and much of the furniture is made by local craftsmen. On the same property, Sirikoi Cottage has two double bedrooms and a kitchen making it ideal for families or small groups of friends. There is a heated swimming pool at the lodge.
