Borana Lodge Laikipia is home to the Dyer family for three generations and the name Borana comes from the native Boran cattle farmed on these arid grasslands. Borana Lodge is set on the edge of the Samangua Valley with panoramic views of Mount Kenya and Kenya’s Northern Frontier.

 

Borana Lodge Laikipia is a small, luxurious lodge, situated on a 35,000-acre ranch, 16 miles north of the equator, at an altitude of 6,500 ft. The area is a haven for a wide diversity of wildlife, including lion, elephant, Jackson’s hartebeest, buffalo, reticulated giraffe, Patas monkeys and great herds of antelope roaming the plains, while the cool forest shelters bushbuck, colobus monkeys and leopard. Borana is a working ranch, named after the doe-eyed Borana cattle.

 

Borana Lodge Laikipia was built in 1992 by local artisans. Only local building materials and dead wood from the ranch were used in its construction. The result is a supremely comfortable and luxurious lodge which is totally in keeping with its surroundings; it seems to have grown organically from the rocks on which it was built.

 

Borana Lodge Laikipia has 8 large double rooms. Of these 4 are interconnecting-family rooms others are 2 separate twins & 2 separate doubles. 16 guest beds (four doubles and four twins) plus two twin guide rooms (four beds). The family cottage allows for up to two additional small children.

 

Borana Lodge Laikipia overlooks a dam which fills with the floodwater flowing off the surrounding hills. It is the local watering hole for all the wildlife in the area so there is constant activity for the guests to watch. There is also a game blind built right on the edge of the dam so that visitors may go down and see the activity at close range: elephants swimming is a favorite.

 

The nights are cool and there are fires in the rooms every night of the year. The clear view of the occasional snow and permanent small glaciers on Mount Kenya is a wonderful contrast to the huge panorama of mountains and desert to the North.

Borana Lodge Accommodation
Borana lodge has eight private and spacious guest cottages. The cottages are decorated in unaffected but luxurious up-country style. Four have large double beds and four have twin beds - both of which are queen size. Extra beds can be provided for children.

 

All Borana Lodge cottages have a veranda except for the family cottage, where two cottages share a spacious veranda that has a phenomenal view over the dam. Each cottage also has an open-fireplace, lit every afternoon by the room stewardess. A basket of firewood is kept in each room. The bathrooms are the epitome of luxury: spacious, clean and with exceptional views over wildest Africa.

 

Borana Lodge Laikipia is built primarily for privacy; each cottage is exclusively sited with its own special view, totally secluded from its neighbor. This ensures guests have a chance to appreciate the wilderness and loneliness of Africa.

 

Borana Lodge Laikipia is set in a verdant garden; almost all the plants are indigenous and chosen for their scents, colors, flowers and hardiness. Water is sufficient to keep the lawns alive, but all other plants have to rely on rainfall. Walk up a cedar ramp and you are confronted with a dramatically sited swimming pool.

 

Guests can swim in a spotlessly clean eye-level pool while watching the elephants wandering down a well-trodden path on their way to the watering hole. The pool veranda, furnished with roman couches, is a favorite place for a relaxed lunch and a chance to lie in the sun. Just above the pool is the Borana shop.

 

This shop gives guests the opportunity to purchase some of the best of African art, as well as beadwork from the local tribesmen, handcrafted jewellery and many other kick-knacks and curios from Kenya.

 

Borana Lodge Laikipia electricity is provided by a 240v generator which runs from 18h30-20h30 and from 06h30 to 10h30. When the generator is on, hair dryers can be used but need to inform the managers – hair dryers can be provided.

 

Phone and camera batteries can be charged in rooms when generator is on. There is a central eating and sitting area: comfy leather sofas surround a huge fireplace with picture windows looking onto the valley below. A massive rosewood table in the dining room is where meals are served by friendly and attentive staff. Local artists' paintings and sculptures decorate the lodge, and are also available for sale.

 

All Borana Lodge food is freshly prepared in the kitchen; vegetables and farm produce from the farm, freshly squeezed juice from the ranch's orchard and wines from around the world.
