About Borana Lodge

Borana Lodge has four stand-alone cottages with exceptional views over the valley below. These cottages are each unique in their own way, designed with the hillside in mind - not forgetting the finer details which make for true comfort. The combination of privacy, natural beauty and an abundance of wildlife creates a unique setting for a truly memorable safari experience. As a family run and owned lodge, Borana is completely unique. You will be guided and hosted by those who know Borana best with a chance to explore the hills and valleys on foot, on horseback, in a car or on a mountain bike. Borana Lodge provides the ultimate location for action and relaxation.

Location

Borana Conservancy lies at the foot of Mt Kenya, a few miles North of the equator. This 32,000-acre private conservancy is typical of the foothills of Mount Kenya. With the mountain to the South and an arid landscape to the North, Borana is perfectly situated for wildlife. The Lodge is at the heart of Borana Conservancy. The lodge is perched on a hillside above a dam, where herds of elephant regularly gather to bathe at lunch time. The presence of water close to the lodge attracts all kinds of characters, lion and leopard are regular nocturnal visitors and are sure to make themselves heard.

How to get there

Scheduled Air:
There are daily scheduled flights by Safarilink and Air Kenya from Nairobi Wilson Airport to neighbouring Lewa Downs Conservancy from where guests are collected. The drive to Sirai House takes approximately one hour.

Private Charter Flights:
There is an airstrip on the Borana Conservancy for charter flights from which guests are collected. Charter flights from Nairobi take approximately 45 minutes and flies past Mount Kenya. All private charters can either be booked out of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport or from Wilson airport, a smaller domestic airfield.

When to go

Borana enjoys a temperate climate. Days are warm with average highs of between 22 and 26 degrees Celsius. Evenings and nights are cool. Rainfall is increasingly hard to forecast but usually happens in November and late March to May.

Important Information

With all trips, we recommend to our clients that they visit their GP a few weeks before travelling. This is just to ensure if any jabs or prescription medicines.

Visas
To enter Kenya, you will need a visa. However, this is an easy process and can either be done online beforehand or on arrival at Nairobi Airport.



Thanks to the height of the location the area is Malaria free.
