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.

We support the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and all that they are working on from wildlife, the environment, and medical and education programs. We also support local communities with tree-planting, organic farming practices, employment and training
