Designed as both a family home and a luxury retreat, Arijiju is a soulful sanctuary, crafted to make space for the spirit. In nature. Arijiju– takes its name from the Maasai word for the hill on which it was built – stands on theBorana Conservancy, owned by Michael Dyer, a third-generation Kenyan. Originally a cattle ranch, like much of the land around here, it shares a boundary with Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, which has been at the forefront of rhino conservation in Kenya for more than two decades. The interior design of the lodge by Johannesburg-based Maira Koutsoudakis, blends beautifully the finesse of Europe with the rusticity of Africa.
