Sirai House


Sirai House is found in the Laikipia region of Kenya, on the Borana Conservancy at the foot of Mount Kenya. Situated high on a remote ridge at the edge of the indigenous cedar and wild olive forest, it offers stunning views in every direction. Built by local craftsmen with local materials it has a true sense of place, yet its eyecatching style reflects a love of archictecture, design and art. Though secluded, it offers every comfort. In short, it is a contemporary East African Home!


The drawing room is the focal point of the house. High ceilings, makuti roofing, persian rugs and giant carved sandstone fireplaces at each end make it a perfect spot for entertaining. If you are looking for peace and quiet, settle down in the library and enjoy the extensive collection of Africana - biographies, histories and guides to flora and fauna. The house is a treasure trove of works of art, unique furniture, curios, books and sculpture. Terraced gardens surround the house and gradually fall away away into the wild flowers and grasses of the bush. Sirai embraces outdoor living with its verandahs, terraced lawns, covered dining places, croquet lawn and boule pit. We also have a beautiful heated pool. A Boma is a traditional Masai cattle enclosure and is the inspiration for our fire pit, the perfect spot for sundown drinks.

The Rooms at Sirai House


There are 5 bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom, as well as one master suite in it's own little house complete with a study, sitting area and private terrace. Rooms 3 & 4 share one sitting room and so do the "treehouse" rooms (5 & 6), which have their own shared sitting room.


Kitchen, Gym, Cinema & Stables at Sirai House


Everything our kitchen team do is focused around you: serving the food you want, when and where you want it. We can also fly in top flight chefs to meet your tastes and, of course, can cater for any dietary requirement.


Just by the pool house, the gym is equipped with everything you need to keep in shape: two running machines, a rowing machine, cross-trainer, exercise bike, dumbbells, mats and weight bench. Please start your exercise gently, remember exercise is a lot harder work at 7,000 feet! We also have a stunning clay tennis court.


The cinema has nine (double) love seats to snuggle up in and watch anything from our collection of 500 films while eating freshy made popcorn served in signature Sirai House boxes. Sports junkies will be able to get their fix of premiership football, rugby, cricket and most other sports too.


We have beautiful horses that are available to experienced riders. They live in specially built stables with their own training paddock and are much loved by Venetia and her team of grooms. We are also able to arrange riding for every level on request.


Safaris & Borana Reserve


Sirai is surrounded by some of the best wilderness terrain in Kenya. Game is abundant including lion, elephants, buffalo and leopard . The Borana Conservancy is the non-profit conservation organisation dedicated to the sustainable conservation of critical habitat and wildlife. From Sirai House guests can journey further afield to explore the extensive tapestry of other Laikipia wildlife reserves including Lewa Downs and the vast region that makes up the Northern Rangelands. Bonface, our resident guide, will get you up close (as is safe) to the game by specially built 4x4 vehicle(s) or on foot. Our custom built game viewers give the perfect balance of comfort, safety and viewing. And it is at your disposal 24 hours a day. We can also organize your very own wilderness experience - whether it be camping out under the stars or a family picnic lunch. It is all part of staying with us.

The silence and off-road abilities of our top-of-the-range mountain bikes allow guests to get very close to big game.
