This may just be the most beautiful place in Africa!
Leave feeling a fitter, better, stronger version of yourself
Every effort was made for the building to blend into and become part of the natural surroundings.
Inspired by Ethiopian monasteries, this beautiful private house is steeped in to the land and leaves a very subtle footprint on the view to Mount Kenya. Arijiju, described as the most beautiful house in Africa by Conde Nast, has five bedrooms and can only be rented exclusively.
Built on the Borana reserve in Laikipia, the land is teeming with wildlife, including Africa’s Big Five, wild dog, and cheetah. Game drives are a must but Arijiju also encourages guests to explore on foot, mountain bike, or horseback with Borana’s superb operation Riding Wild.
Arijiju is not just a safari but a wellness retreat too. Home grown produce and fresh daily juice blends lend to the healthy lifestyle Arijiju supports. There is a spa, Hammam, gym, yoga deck, tennis court and squash court, all inconspicuously blending in to the valley, and the highly skilled masseuse and beauty therapist is available at no extra cost.
Arijiju is ideal for one or two families, or up to five couples. It is a unique family home, a wholesome and indulgent retreat, and a sanctuary for African adventure.
