Sirikoi

CONTRIBUTE TO – CONSERVATION, COMMUNITY, CULTURE & COMMERCE

“It’s an exceptional location, surrounded by 68,000 acres of World Heritage-listed wilderness”

A passion for wildlife and commitment to conservation and community development are at the heart of Sirikoi’s philosophy. Here they don’t just talk about conservation; they live it. Surrounding the small lodge, and directly supported by it, is one of the world’s most iconic and successful wildlife projects. The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy not only protects wildlife species, but also directly enriches the lives of communities in this area.

Lewa is internationally renowned as an innovative model for the conservation of wildlife, including endangered species such as black rhino and Grevy’s zebra, and habitats. Key to this success is its engagement with local communities, achieved through the initiation and support of conservation and development programmes, and also the education of neighbouring communities in the value of wildlife.

Together with the generous help from its guests, Sirikoi also contributes significant amounts towards Lewa’s conservation, community, education and health projects. As a result, you have a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes at Lewa’s headquarters. You’ll be shown around the operations room and tracker-dog unit, h meet members of the anti-poaching team, and may also get to visit Lewa’s health clinic or a school supported by the education programme.

OVERVIEW
“Within Kenya, Cottar’s and their 1920’s Camp keep a very low profile, but globally this small, family-run, purpose-driven company punches way above its weight.” – Travel + Leisure

Representing vintage safari luxury at its best, the award-winning Cottar’s 1920s Camp boasts its own 7,608-acre private conservancy and is situated just one kilometre from one of Earth’s natural wonders: the Masai Mara National Reserve and, across the border in Tanzania, contiguous Serengeti region. Run by the continent’s first and longest-running safari family owners, it embodies the original, romantic spirit of adventurous African travel.

Having been providing safaris for more than 100 years, the Cottar family focuses on providing authentic, individualised safari experiences and continuing a legacy founded on wilderness, wildlife, comfort and security, as well as honouring a balance between conservation, prosperous commerce, community and culture.

Our 1920s Camp provides the romance of safari under cream-coloured canvas tents – the bygone style of safaris’ golden age while, at the same time, supplying amenities required by modern-day travellers and professional guides whose qualifications rank among the highest in Africa.
