As a small and intimate family-owned safari lodge, Sirikoi offers unrivalled exclusivity and charm. There is a perfect synthesis of luxury and sustainability. The lodge is surrounded by 68, 000 acres of pure wilderness of the renowned World Heritage Site, Lewa Conservancy. The location of the lodge speaks for itself; its a truly remarkable immersion in nature, with all the luxuries one could desire. Read more about Lewa Conservancy here, and more about the awards Sirikoi has won here.
Sirikoi comprises of a main lodge and dining deck, four luxury tents, Sirikoi Cottage and Sirikoi House. All locations are perfectly (and tastefully) positioned along the spring-fed Sirikoi stream, from which the lodge derives its name. All the buildings have a view of the lawns leading out onto the Sirikoi wetland and waterhole.
For this retreat, we will be in the Sirikoi Cottage and Sirikoi House. Both of these magnificent buildings have a private outside deck. This ensures our privacy during yoga classes, 'armchair' game viewing and relaxing, and al-fesco dining in style.
All the rooms are spacious and carefully designed, with unique décor touches, a sitting area, big Victorian bathtubs, rain-showers and fireplaces.
Let Nina's intuitive and distinctive approach to yoga awaken your connection with nature, yourself and your inner peace. This retreat is private and intimate - it has been carefully and tastefully planned to make the most of the natural beauty of Sirikoi, and for this to be our inspiration. We'll enjoy our daily yoga sessions with breath-taking nature views and we'll let the ancient wisdom of the African wilderness inspire us as we stop for daily mindfulness meditation sessions.
Sirikoi has over a hectare of organic permaculture farming grounds, run under the careful guidance of the supremely knowledgable and talented, George. All your meals will be not just prepared fresh with care, but picked fresh with love that day by George and members of the Sirikoi ground staff.
This is an opportunity to nourish your body, along with your soul. Feed the senses by dining outside, or on a breathtakingly beautiful veranda with the other yoga retreat guests. Expect healthy, tasty, and balanced meals, that leave you feeling energised and light - ready for your yoga and safari experiences.
We'll be treated to a private guided tour through George's gardens on one of the afternoons on retreat. (Watch the Sirikoi farm-to-table video story.)
Don't miss out on sundowners! This is a daily ritual, when we stop to drink in the stillness and majesty of the African bush, ablaze in a blanket of colour.
