Borana Lodge is located at the heart of Borana Conservancy on the foothills of Mt Kenya. With an arid landscape, ancient indigenous forests and high altitude moorlands, Borana is in a prime location for both wildlife and breathtaking scenery.
The lodge was built entirely from local materials by local craftsmen and the Dyer family who are still on site and actively involved. Borana is also home to Kenya's newest and most successful rhino sanctuary.
Each cottage at Borana Lodge is built around the main house which houses a comfortable sitting room, bar and dining room. Further along the ridge line you will find a horizon pool looking onto the Hyena Valley Dam below, which allows for poolside game viewing. The lunch pavilion is set above the pool house and boasts wonderful views over the entire conservancy.
