A passion for wildlife and commitment to conservation and community development are at the heart of the Sirikoi philosophy. At Sirikoi they don’t just talk about conservation – they live it. They are surrounded by, and directly support one of the most iconic and successful wildlife conservancies in the world , the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, which not only protects iconic wildlife species, but also directly improves the lives of communities in the area.
Lewa is internationally renowned as an innovative model for the conservation of wildlife and habitats, including endangered species such as black rhino and Grevy’s zebra. A key to this success is engagement with local communities, achieved through the initiation and support of community conservation and development programmes, and the education of neighbouring communities in the value of wildlife.
Together with the generous help of their guests, Sirikoi contributes significant amounts towards Lewa’s conservation, community, education and health projects. Their guests have the unique opportunity to see conservation in action:to go behind the scenes at Lewa’s headquarters, to experience first-hand how conservation and anti-poaching really work. Guests are shown around the operations room and tracker dog unit, have the opportunity to meet members of the anti-poaching team, and may also like to visit Lewa’s health clinic or one of the schools supported by the education programme.
