Borana Lodge

DescriptionLaikipia tourism

‘Borana’ has become a byword for luxury, exclusivity and freedom;. Built from local building materials and dead wood from the ranch, the lodge is totally in keeping with its surroundings. All areas of the Lodge overlook a lake that is a popular watering hole for the local animals so there is constant activity for guests to watch.



Borana Lodge is situated on a wildlife rich, private, working cattle ranch, adjacent to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. It is set on the edge of the Samangua Valley with panoramic views of Mount Kenya, the Borana plains and the Ngare Ndare forest. Home to the Dyer family for three generations, the ranch has panoramic views over the Samangua Valley and the Lewa Plains to the Ngare Ndare Forest and Mount Kenya.


The Lodge offers eight romantic and unique cottages, each with an open fireplace, ensuite bathrooms and private veranda. All cottages are entirely secluded and have private views from both bedroom and bathroom of the valley below.

There are eight cottages at Borana. Four have large double beds and four have twin beds - both of which are queen size. One room has a children’s bedroom attached to it.
