An ancient olive tree provides natural shade beside the cantilevered pool, suspended above the Sieku valley and fed by our well. Stretch out on a Lamu daybed as swallows skim the surface and elephants stop to drink from the lip. Breathe in the scent of jasmine and wild basil, and allow yourself to be hypnotised by a chorus of birdsong.

What makes it Kobu

Breakfast at Arijiju Retreat, Kenya.
Nourishment is the cornerstone of Arijiju’s philosophy. Using local, farm-reared beef and poultry, local herbs and vegetables from our organic kitchen garden, our chefs create delicious, healthy dishes with low-or-no food miles, and allow you to tailor your menus from indulgent to slimming, vegan, and/or gluten-free.
Open fences and corridors allow for safe passage for animals on migration, while radio collars on elephant matriarchs and roaming lions help inform and divert human-wildlife conflict. As such, Laikipia has emerged as the only region in Kenya where wildlife numbers have increased over the past 20 years.
