Hotel Overview


The Laikipia Plateau, Northern Kenya.

Rooms at Borana

Eight beautiful stone and thatch cottages and Laragai House, a private bush residence for families and groups seeking the ultimate in exclusivity.  There are cosy open fireplaces, private verandahs, and beautiful views over the valley below.

Food and Facilities

Delicious home-cooked food eaten at a communal table each evening, the chefs have a wide range of cuisines so expect something fantastic and different every day. Spend your down time at the infinity pool with views out over the downs. The lodge has excellent horses that cater to all levels for when you want to venture out onto the plains.

Activities at Borana

Game drives, by day and by night, spending time on the Dyer family cattle ranch, and walking safaris. Our two favourite things are the horse-riding and mountain biking safaris. Mountain-biking is the latest way to explore the bush, fast enough to provide variety, but even more thrilling than game drives. The riding at Borana is top-notch and comes highly recommended, a fantastic way to get up close and personal with the wildlife.
