Formerly known as Willie’s Camp, this is arguably one of the finest camps in Kenya. Sirikoi has been designed and built with the detail and attention that has come from years of experience running tailor-made safaris in East Africa. At Sirikoi the spacious living and dining area, infinity swimming pool and veranda deck are set within extensive lawns, scattered acacia trees and overlooking a natural waterhole where wild animals frequently visit to wallow and drink.

The camp has four luxury tented rooms which overlook the waterhole. Beautifully furnished with soft throws, relaxing arm chairs and even a roll top bath, these tented rooms offer the perfect place to relax and soak in the surrounding wilderness.

Sirikoi Cottage comprises two ensuite bedrooms with an adjoining living area in between. With its own private kitchen and outdoor deck with fire place, guests can be as private as they like and take meals here or join guests at the main lodge and share stories around the camp fire.

Sirikoi House is ideal a small group or family travelling together and taken on an exclusive basis with private chef, guide and team of staff. The house is split into three main areas comprising a master bedroom cottage, a large central living and dining area and a separate two-bedroom cottage to the right. The rooms are large and sumptuously decorated, all overlooking manicured gardens and wetlands beyond - the perfect place for private sundowners or dinners.

The style of the camp is in keeping with the unrivalled hospitality of Sirikoi. Lewa Wildlife Conservancy has had a pioneering role in conservation, the incredible array of game is testament to this. The beautiful landscape varies from rolling hills to the thick Ngere Ndare forest. Lewa holds 12% of Kenya's black rhino population and the largest single population of the endangered Grevy zebras in the world.

As well as walking and game drives there are also horse safaris. A new activity at Sirikoi (which must be prearranged) gives guests the opportunity to book a few nights at a specially developed mobile camp which can be set up at remote locations throughout Kenya, from the dry bush of Samburu to the forests of the Matthews Range to the shores of Lake Turkana. The camps are set up for you and you can join by road, plane or helicopter.

Sirikoi has its own extensive vegetable garden supplying the camp’s kitchen, which produces excellent food.
