A private home in the Borana Conservancy in the Laikipia region of Kenya, located at the foot of snow-capped Mount Kenya, Sirai House sits in a secluded 250-acre estate, high on a ridge with spectacular views in all directions, surrounded by indigenous forests and game-rich Kenyan hills and plains.

For several years, the owners of Sirai had searched Kenya for the perfect site to build a contemporary East African lodge. In 2009, a serendipitous meeting with Michael Dyer, a third-generation member of the Kenyan family who established the Borana Conservancy, provided the seed from which the project grew. They became shareholders in the Conservancy, a non-profit organisation dedicated to the sustainable conservation of critical habitat and wildlife.

The location of the house, one of the highest points in the Borana Conservancy and with 360 degree panoramas, is utterly unique and provides guests with staggering views from every room. Despite the spectacular position, Sirai, like a pride of lions perched high on a mountainside, sits gently in its surroundings, at one with its native African flora and fauna.

  • Working with neighbours and the community, Borana’s mission is to provide a sustainable ecosystem for critically endangered species. It takes a holistic approach to ensure tourism, ranching and other enterprises fund the building of local livelihoods and enhance the ecosystem integrity.
