Borana Lodge is set on the edge of the Samangua Valley with panoramic views of Mt.Kenya and Kenya’s Northern Frontier.  Borana is a small, luxurious family-hosted lodge with a horizon pool.  It is situated on a 35,000 acre ranch 16 miles north of the equator, at an altitude 6,500 ft; a haven for a wide diversity of wildlife: lion, elephant, Jackson’s hartebeest, buffalo, reticulated giraffe, Patas monkeys and great herds of antelope roam the plains while the cool forest shelters bush buck, colobus monkeys and leopard.  Borana is a working ranch, named after the doe-eyed Borana cattle

Borana is an accredited member of the Eco Tourism Society of Kenya and plays an active role in regional conservation, eco-system maintenance, community development initiatives, health and education.

Borana has eight private and spacious guest cottages decorated in unaffected but luxurious up-country style.  All rooms have an open fireplace, veranda and en suite bathroom with bath and shower.  Extra beds can be provided for children.  Electricity is provided by a 240v generator which runs during the morning and evening hours.
