Borana Lodge

Borana Lodge takes its name from the native Boran cattle farmed on these arid grasslands. The ranch sits within a vast conservation area to preserve the natural environment and to promote social economic improvements in the area. It enjoys an idyllic setting, 17 miles north of the equator and 6,000 feet above sea level and the nights are cool. The lodge is designed to work in harmony with the landscape and is created from local, sustainable building materials.

The Lodge is set in a lush green garden of largely indigenous plants chosen for their scents, colours and flowers. Come to Borana for the ultimate safari experience. Or just relax in the luxury and harmonious comfort of The lodge.
