Arijiju is an enchanting private home in the heart of the Borana Conservancy, one of Kenya’s most staggering landscapes with world-class wildlife on your doorstep. Taking its inspiration from Ethiopian monasteries, Arijiju is a calm and contemplative space characterised by vaulted archways, stone passageways and a central courtyard, intricately designed by leading architects and interior designers to blend into the landscapes that surround.
Arijiju places a clear focus on health and wellness, partnered with a pioneering approach to conservation. There are 20 members of staff varying from guides and rangers to butlers and chefs, all on hand to cater to your every need. Guests can spend their downtime relaxing with a treatment in the spa or in the impeccable wellness retreat, sighting native wildlife while taking a dip in the outdoor infinity pool, or perhaps getting active on the tennis court. The kitchen is central to the Arijiju experience, with world-class chefs and a delightful farm-to-fork menu featuring exquisite organic ingredients.
Spot the coveted Big 5 on 4×4 safaris, as well as on horseback, walking, mountain biking and quad biking safaris. Further afield, stride through the canopy of the Ndare Ngare forest on aerial bridges and spend a night camping in its lush interior, or board a helicopter to soar over hidden ecosystems nestled in the craters of a dormant volcano and shimmering mountain lakes pink with flamingo. Glide above hippo and crocodile on the Esawo river towards the mighty Mount Kenya, and venture north to the sprawling deserts untouched by tourism.
Organic local cuisine
A portion of the fee goes towards helping local education, community and wildlife conservation projects supported by Borana Conservancy – those staying at Arijiju personally contribute to the Conservancy’s elephant migration corridors, lion research projects and the vital protection of resident rhino
Set on a private conservancy which is a 90,000-acre conservation archetype. Such conservation efforts are demonstrated in the fact the Laikipia Plateau is now the only part of Kenya in which wildlife numbers have increased in the last 20 years
Arijiju is spearheading a host of anti-poaching initiatives including educational outreach programmes in the neighbouring village and the introduction of highly-trained anti-poaching rangers
The Retreat is carbon-efficient and sustainably built. Spa treatments using Kenyan honey and coconut milk
Arijiju is powered by solar energy, recycles all grey water and is completely free of plastic water bottles thanks to a local borehole that supplies all drinking water
Why we love it
Arijiju is a unique, architectural haven with first-class facilities and an unrivalled variety of wildlife on your doorstep. Guests can explore their surroundings on a unique ‘running safari’, following clearly mapped trails through Arijiju’s stunning landscapes and sighting the Big 5 as they go.
