Magical Kenya is full of wonderful gems, among them Sirikoi Lodge.
The beautiful and serene Sirikoi Lodge was recently awarded the title of ‘Best Resort in The World’ and ‘Best Safari Property in Africa’ in the recently concluded Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. According to reports, the award-winning property that was established by Brit couple Willie and Sue Roberts seats on a couple of acres on the UNESCO World Heritage site Lewa Wildlife conservancy.
The property boasts of various offerings including a 3- bedroom house and two-and four-bedroom tent for guest accommodation. The embodiment of eco-chic, the Sirikoi Lodge has remained committed to wildlife and environmental conservation working in close proximity with park authorities and the neighboring community, earning the lodge has received the Gold level eco-rating for three years in a row.
A night in the high-end bush lodge will cost a pretty penny. According to African Mecca Safaris, “The Safari Tier 1 (Premier) rooming & safari activity rate in Kenya starts from US $750 to US $1250 per person/night sharing on average with the very few topping to around $1750 a night for a highly exclusive, upmarket and private experience. The cost is generally all inclusive of rooming, meals, drinks where included, park fees, guided safari activities e.g. game drives and Kenya hotel taxes (VAT) and service charges for non-residents.” However, the rates for residents are much more affordable, with the luxury tents rates starting from 26,000 shillings per person.
Guests enjoy lavish meals, and exhilarating game drives within one of Magical Kenya’s premium locations. According to Sirikoi, Lewa Wildlife Conservancy hosts an abundance of wildlife and includes many rare endangered species such as reticulated giraffe, black and white rhino, and the largest resident population of Grevy’s zebra in the world. Elusive leopard and wild dog sightings, and families of elephant have carved Sirikoi into their migratory routes and almost daily big herds can be seen just in front of the Sirikoi deck for hours at a time.
Sirikoi Lodge is definitely worth a visit if you can afford it. Resident rates sent by the Sirikoi team, rates begin from 26,000Ksh per night for Kenyan residents for the luxury tents to 265,000Ksh per night for the Sirikoi House which accommodates 6.
