With eight perfectly-proportioned cottages nestled unobtrusively onto the hillside, Borana’s environs have been designed to enhance its visitors’ experience of the area’s natural beauty. Thoughtful design touches provide the utmost comfort, and spectacular scenic views accompany every home-from-home the lodge offers its guests.
Beautiful design notwithstanding, perhaps what distinguishes Borana from its competition better than anything is its vast array of activities (think splashing in waterfalls, mountain biking, horse riding, quad biking, hiking and more), combined with its remarkable conservation activities. The Borana Wildlife Conservancy is far less visited than its neighbours, meaning guests have an opportunity to explore the area with a feeling of it being almost exclusively theirs.
A history of environmental stewardship runs through Borana’s veins, and the lodge offers a multitude of opportunities to get hands-on with these activities. Borana’s nature as a non-profit means that all guests can rest assured that their stay contributes directly to enhancing and improving community and environmental activities.
Borana is also a wonderful choice for families, with a range of experiences being tailored to children, from gentle strolls on horseback to child-sized bikes perfect for taking down to the river for a picnic. Young guests will be especially impressed by visiting the real pride rock, said to be the inspiration behind Pride Rock in Disney’s The Lion King.
For keen equestrians, Borana is particularly renowned for its signature horse riding safaris, and multi-day experiences can be arranged for guests with strong riding skills.
With its stunning location and diversity of activities available, Borana is the ideal choice whether seeking family fun or an active couple’s retreat.
