Borana Lodge


Call 0121 472 1541 to chat about accommodation


Situated 17 miles north of the equator, Borana Ranch – and its associated exclusive family home, Laragai House – provides views of both the Samangua Valley, the Lewa Plains, and Mount Kenya. Excursions may be made to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy itself, as well as local lakes (for fishing) and Mount Kenya.

Each of the 8 cottages is totally secluded, and several can be adapted for family accommodation. Each has its own fireplace, in which a fire is lit every evening (Africa can be cold at night!). Most of the food provided is locally sourced, and dinner can take place in the dining room or under the stars.

All areas of the lodge overlook a lake, in which it is often possible to see elephants swimming. Since Borana is also a working ranch, with 2000 head of cattle, it is possible to add the experience of ‘real’ African life to the slightly artificial one of wild life game viewing.

Since Borana Ranch is situated on private property, there are no Park Rules to obey, leaving open the opportunity to undertake walking safaris, night drives and the like. It also means that you will not be troubled by hordes of (other!) tourists, in crowded minibuses.

The only way to get truly acquainted with the African bush is to see it on foot. Walking safaris offer a unique insight into an amazing habitat.

We think any opportunity to step outside the cosseted realm of the safari goer and into the real Africa should be taken if at all possible.

Serious game fishing in Kenya is restricted to off-shore, but inland there are still Tiger Fish, Catfish and Bream to be caught.
