‘Holy trinity’ of views; A Private Sanctuary



Tucked on the eastern side of Laikipia County in the Famous Borana-Lewa Conservancy, the ultra-luxurious Private Kenyan Retreat, Arijiju, mixes European Classicism with an African Esthetic. Arijiju (whose name comes from the Masai word for the hill on which it sits) is, principally, a family home and the people there are its heart. You feel it when you first visit, and every time you revisit. Every element has been considered and refined to create an air of unassuming elegance.  A perfect Private Sanctuary on earth.

Why you need to know- Arijiju

  1. Arijiju lies in the Borana Conservancy, a vast private game reserve within Laikipia. To the north and east of Arijiju lie snow-capped mountains, dense forests and sprawling deserts, while to the south looms Mount Kenya. Whichever way you face, it is towards adventure.
  2. Nourishment is the cornerstone of Arijiju’s philosophy. The chefs create dishes tailored to your menus using local, farm-reared beef and poultry, local herbs and vegetables from their organic kitchen garden.
  3. Activities at Arijiju Retreat are plentiful and varied. There are guided wildlife drives and walks available, as well as mountain biking, helicopter safari, quad-bike trips and access to the Ngare Ndare Forest.

  1. Here you’ll spend daily safaris surrounded by the Big 5, from cheetah and prides of lion to striding giraffe and the iconic black and white rhino
  2. Dedicated to conservation, Arijiju has been sustainably built and its tourism model funds local conservation projects.
  3. It’s a discreet private house and operates on an Exclusive use basis only. It can accommodate up to 10 guests in 5 suites. Children under the age of 5 years can stay free of charge.
  4. Carved into the bedrock, Arijiju blends so discreetly into the landscape that it’s hard to spot, even from the air.
  5. The not usual safari lodge is credited as the most beautiful bush residence in Africa – run like a five-star hotel.
  6. The design has a contemporary and ancient, elemental and artisanal feel as it was partly inspired by the monasteries of neighboring Ethiopia.
