Hewn into a rocky hillside on the sprawling Borana Reserve in Laikipia, Kenya, Arijiju is an enchanting private family home that has been designed and constructed over a painstaking ten-year period and is now available for exclusive hire for groups of up to ten adults and 4 children. The calm and contemplative space takes inspiration from the Ethiopian churches of Lalibela that lie to the North, and a 12th century monastery in France. Arijiju boasts vaulted archways, stone passageways and a central landscaped courtyard, whilst its flat roofs planted with natural grasses and rough-hewn rock see it all but disappear into the untamed landscape.

Arijiju is home to five exquisite suites, three flanking the central courtyard and a further two nestled in the olive groves that surround, whilst a sixth ‘constellation suite’ is available for those nights too beautiful to sleep anywhere but under the stars. Elsewhere, a cavernous dining room, games room, cinema and well-equipped library are available for cooler nights.

Arijiju is not just a safari lodge but a health and wellness retreat too. The cuisine and fresh daily smoothies lend to the healthy lifestyle Arijiju supports. There is a spa, Hammam, gym, yoga deck, tennis court and squash court all inconspicuously blending into the valley, and all spa and beauty treatments are included in the modest rate. The owner is driven by conservation not commercial gain.

 

Borana Lodge is steeped in history and style. Located at the heart of Borana Conservancy, Borana Lodge is set against a beautiful hillside with an organic design and panoramic views throughout.
In 2013, a founding population of 21 black rhino were introduced to Borana Conservancy. Once they were settled, Borana and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy were integrated to form one landscape; 92,000 acres of unspoilt African wilds.
There are now over 95 black rhino and 84 white rhino on the Lewa-Borana landscape.
Since the introduction of Rhino, Borana Lodge has become the only lodge in Kenya to invest all retained earnings into conservation. This means that every night spent at Borana Lodge is invaluable to the conservation of the surrounding landscape, communities and wildlife.
Staying at Borana Lodge acts as a direct contribution to safeguarding the future of endangered wildlife in Kenya.
This truly is travelling with a purpose.

Situated on an equatorial bluff with fine views of Mount Kenya and across Laikipia, we are 3.5 hours from Nairobi. We are ideally located for good walking, mountain biking, high altitude training, game viewing, natural swimming, breathtaking picnic and sundowner spots, and other activities.
With only five tents and two living spaces, we are purposefully small and personal. We can sleep 20 guests and are perfect for families and exclusive, intimate gatherings. Each spacious, canvas bell tent and tipi is romantically furnished with double beds and feather duvets, luxury mats and carpets, bespoke furniture and freshly cut flowers. We offer full-board, hire-in chefs and self-catering.

 

Sirai House, located in Borana Conservancy at the foot of Mount Kenya, is a magnificent private home with staggering views in every direction. Built by local craftsmen from indigenous materials, the house reflects a love of architecture, design and art, having been created with privacy and comfort in mind. Available for private hire, Sirai House affords guests all the facilities associated with a world-class resort, only with the cocoon-like ambience and seclusion of a private home – and set in a flourishing game conservancy. The numerous verandas and terraced lawns offer an extensive choice of venues for al fresco meals or sundowners, complemented by the heated infinity pool and dining area with views stretching across the plains to the hills beyond. Amongst the other recreational facilities on offer are a clay tennis court, croquet lawn, boules pit, ping pong and snooker tables, and a luxurious spa retreat for moments of contemplation and relaxing treatments. Sirai has its own watering hole and hide for in situ game viewing, however game drives in the custom-made Land Rover, sumptuous bush picnics, walking safaris and numerous other excursions can be arranged, as can riding safaris for experienced riders; Sirai is home to a stable of beautiful horses and operates as a working stud.
