Game Drives

If you wish to experience a real connection with big game, to hear a male lion’s breath from thirty meters, to watch a baby elephant snap twigs from the other side of a bush you could reach out and touch, you may do so at your whim day or night. Completely secure within our luxurious custom Land Rovers, our KPSGA-registered guide, Boniface, will share with you his knowledge, his heritage and his love of the abundant wildlife and flora to be found within the Borana and Lewa Conservancies.

Walking Safaris

Armed with binoculars, you will silently creep behind Boniface as he leads you through the land. Stepping lightly and talking in whispers, the thrill of observing large game on foot will be a memory made in Sirai that will never leave you. Boniface carries two things with him that ensure your safety: many years of experience and a rifle.

Riding Safaris

Experienced riders can delight in exploring Borana from the saddle; an early morning hack, riding out to follow an elephant herd or cantering up to the brow of a hill for sundowners around a fire. For the ulitmate riding experience, ask us to prepare an overnight safari with exhilarating, adventurous days on horseback and nights in our luxury campsite where none of the comforts of Sirai are left behind.

Fly Camping

If you yearn for the true wilds of the African bush, let us arrange an overnight camp where the comfort and service found at Sirai makes this an overland adventure without sacrifice of luxury. Let our tents with wooden beds, our campaign-table bar and dinner beneath the African night sky evoke memories of a distant era where attention to detail and quality brought glamour to the wilderness.

Picnics and Sundowners

When you trek down river from the Blue Pools or cross the rope bridge to find, on a wooden platform perched amongst the tree-tops, a lunch table laid with linen and smiling staff holding silver platters of food.
When you arrive at the top of a hill by Land Rover or horse back and find a circle of chairs around a fire, with warm shawls and chilled drinks awaiting you and all of Kenya lying beneath you before the setting sun – then you realise Sirai is more than a house, it is a standard of excellence and splendour that follows you wherever you venture during your stay.

Excursions

From your base at Sirai, all of Kenya calls to you with a warm welcome. Take a short drive or a breathtaking helicopter flight to see more of this very special part of the world.

The Blue Pools

At Borana’s southern boundary on the foothills of Mount Kenya, our guides will lead you through the Ngare Ndare forest. This is the corridor used by elephant as they travel from the Lewa Conservancy to higher ground on the mountain. After walking beside the river or across the treetop walkway the trees part to reveal the stunning azure waters of the pools. Swim, climb the waterfalls and leap into the water as sunlight glimmers through the canopy high above.

Mount Kenya

“An ethereal mountain…a blue-black tooth of shear rock inlaid with azure glaciers, austere yet floating fairy-like on the near horizon… For hours afterwards I remained spell-bound.” – (mountaineer Felice Benuzzi of Mount Kenya). This UNESCO World Heritage Site is accessible from Sirai by helicopter. Gaze down on its forests, ridges, glaciers and peaks or land beside Lake Alice or Lake Michelson for fly fishing or a picnic at 3,550m.

The Singing Wells

Travel to witness people of Ol Donyo Wasin fetch precious water from these deep wells and hear them sing as they pump it for their livestock in century-old tradition. As the song changes, each animal knows when it is their turn to come and drink.

explore

Lake Bogoria

Take a short flight by bi-plane and peer down at the nesting site of one of the world’s largest flamingo flocks. Fed by the Sandai and Emos rivers, with 200 hot springs, this volcanic lake is their chosen home. Watch the heat haze shimmer with bright pink as legions of birds take flight from the rippled water’s surface.

Sugata Valley & Lake Turkana

Follow in the footsteps of Count Teleki’s 1888 expedition that reached the shores of the lake, now named to honour its reclusive indigenous people. It lies in the Great Rift Valley, created by a jagged fault that tore across the crust of the African continent 20 million years ago, still considered by many to be the birthplace of mankind. On this special part of our earth you will camp beneath magical night skies and see large colonies of Nile crocodiles as well as the myriad species of migratory birds that travel this route.
