Borana Lodge Overview
Discover the magic of Kenya at Borana Lodge, on the eastern edge of the Laikipia Plateau with panoramic vistas of the snow-capped peaks and glaciers of Mount Kenya to the south.The lodge is situated within the vast area of the Ewaso ecosystem, a 4-hour drive from Nairobi and an hour’s drive from Nanyuki.
Borana Lodge derives its name from the native Boran cows popular in the arid grasslands of the plateau. The 35,000-acre ranch sits within a cosmic conservation area that benefits the locals both economically and socially while promoting the preservation of the natural environment.
Built in 1992 by the locals using only local building materials and dead wood from the ranch, the 8 cottages of this stunning Mount Kenya accommodation are designed to blend effortlessly with the landscape. The interiors are superbly decorated with simple, clean furnishings, and the result is an unassuming luxury.
2 of the cottages are family units with double rooms. No 2 rooms are the same but all offer airy spaces with large en-suite bathrooms that feature baths, walk-in showers, twin wash basins and toiletries to boot. The cottages have fireplaces and private verandas that look out over a busy watering hole. In each room is a hairdryer, safe and wireless internet.
Approximately 8km from Borana Safari Lodge is the luxurious 8-bedroomed Laragai House that is bookable on an exclusive use basis. This Mount Kenya guest house is a real gem for guests who relish their privacy. Laragai House boasts a clay tennis court, heated pool, outdoor lunch areas including a DVD library, satellite TV and Wi-Fi.
The public areas of Borana include an open-sided lounge and bar with comfy cushioned sofas, animal paintings and African furniture. Guests can also relax in a large stone-walled house under thatch offering 4 living rooms, one upstairs and the other outside. Just above the infinity pool is the dining area where delectable meals are served.
Your holiday at Borana Lodge will be spent in the wilderness on game drives in the company of experienced guides who are well versed with the terrain. Embark on horseback safaris and bush walks for a more intimate interaction with nature. You do not need to go anywhere to view game as the lodge is placed in front of a waterhole that attracts different wildlife species. If climbing is your thing, then head off to Mount Kenya National Park to climb the second highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kenya.
