The most beautiful homes in Africa

The Borana Conservancy in Kenya's Laikipia County offers some of the most plentiful, diverse and breathtaking wildlife experiences in the world. Situated between the snow-tipped peaks of Mount Kenya to the south and a panorama of mountains and desert to the north, Borana is also the setting for two of the most luxurious private homes in all of Africa – Arijiju and Sirai House.

A private, tranquil retreat carved out of a hill on the Borana Conservancy, Arijiju (above) is one of the most elegant homes imaginable. With monastic-inspired architecture and chic interiors, this impressive home is almost spiritual in its simplicity.

With a contrasting setting, Sirai House (below), situated high on a remote ridge with Mount Kenya as its backdrop, has been designed to offer guests stunning views in every direction. With an eye-catching style, this ultra luxurious home perfectly reflects the owners' love of architecture, art and inimitable design.
