Choppers are becoming a familiar sighting these days in Kenya, and are well paired with a stay at a new super-luxe private African house: Sirai (www.siraihouse.com; sleeps up to 12, from $50,000 per week) in the Laikipia District, available to rent from January 2013. Some of the stepped-stone and lawn landscaping recalls Aman’s work in Bali, while the master-bedroom bath opens up to a plunge pool, and the infinity pool to the great Kenyan landscape. Just in case the bush doesn’t offer enough live entertainment, there’s also a private cinema.
