      Borana Lodge

      Unique Experiences in the Land of the Endangered

      In the Laikipia region the diversity of large mammals is higher than in any other part of Kenya. Laikipia hosts the highest populations of endangered species: black rhino (half of Kenya’s total population), Grevy’s zebra (70% of the world’s population), reticulated giraffe, the only viable population of Lelwel hartebeest in the country and Africa’s only expanding population of wild dog. Borana Lodge is set on a hillside overlooking panoramic views over the Samangua Valley and the Lewa Plains to the Ngare Ndare Forest and Mount Kenya beyond, along with a lake which attracts herds of elephants, buffalo and often prides of lion. Borana Lodge offers eight romantic and unique cottages, each with an open fireplace and private veranda. Each cottage is entirely secluded with private views from bedroom and bathroom. The rooms all have their own fireplace, which are lit every evening. The lodge is designed to work in harmony with the landscape and is created from local, sustainable building materials. All food is freshly prepared in the kitchen. Borana sources as many ingredients as possible from their farm produce and kitchen garden. Communal dining is encouraged, however private dinners can be arranged on request. The Lodge has a fleet of radio-linked, custom-built, four-wheel-drive, open-sided vehicles that are driven by knowledgeable driver/guides. Since Borana is private property, there are no game park rules and no one else will ever obscure your view of the big game that lives here. Night game drives - when most animals are active - are very popular, allowing guests an insight into the nocturnal life of the bush that is denied them in most of the parks. Other activities on offer include guided wildlife, birdlife and scenic walks, horse riding, mountain biking, sundowners, picnics, bush dinners, ranch days and use of the swimming pool. Optional activities at an extra charge include visits to local villages, certain riding & fishing excursions, scenic helicopter flights, and massage treatments by advance request.
