Kenya’s Primal Sanctuary

Arijiju nestles in the Kenyan highlands, part of its timeless primal landscape calling you to become a stronger version of yourself. Unequalled wild luxury holds the promise of retreat, adventure and a subtle call to search for the eternal within a 97,000-acre playground where big fun can be had alongside big game.

Choose your favourite way to safari within The Conservancy – swooping helicopter dips, quad bike discoveries on daily antelope migration trails, rappelling mysterious Mount Kenya, or capturing the romance of the highlands on horseback.

The sight of your first big game takes you one step further toward a whole new world of adventure, illuminating what it means to journey outside of your comfort zone. Face-to-face with a rhinoceros, glimpsing a jaguar, sitting squarely in the sights of a lion, the loving protection of zebras gathered in a defensive circle, each keeping watch over the other; you want to hold on to this unique moment.

The journey to the heart is perhaps the most exotic destination and staff members see to it that you have whatever you need, from butlers, chefs, game rangers, running guides, groundskeepers, and housekeepers to security.

A gym, yoga deck, spa house and treatment hut are available for personal transformation when you decide to begin a bucket-list retreat or simply need a workout to fuel your next adventure. The spa house offers a hamam, cold plunge pool, and in-and-outdoor showers. At your request, Arijiju’s therapist casts a spell to calm the day’s aches with ancient Kenyan concoctions of honey and coconut milk, hand-ground salt scrubs and the wonders of deep tissue massage.

Fuelling your bespoke adventures is world-class cuisine thoughtfully prepared and delivered to your requested enchanted natural setting. Crafted to satisfy every romantic, adventurous whim whether high tea on the savannah or a white-linen table for two, so elegant and breathtaking only experiencing this beauty would make you believe such a place existed around and within you. The perfect way to end a perfect day. arijiju.com
