Our rating: Premium | Property style: Lodge
A stay at Borana Lodge affords stunning views out across the dry plains of Laikipia to the snow-capped massif of Mount Kenya. Owner run and managed, this is an absolute paradise for visitors looking to explore the wonders of the beautiful Laikipia region. There are eight luxury cottages spread well apart from one another around the grounds of the lodge. The rooms all have individual styles and décor, with either king or twin beds, but all have en-suite bathrooms with full amenities and private verandas where guests can relax during the day. In the main part of the lodge, the lovely open plan lounge and dining area creates a great social atmosphere, whilst the swimming pool provides a great place to lounge and cool off during the day’s heat. Weather permitting, superb lunches are served alfresco while dinners are a communal affair around the large rosewood table. A variety of activities are included with game drives, guided walks, sundowners, horse-riding and mountain biking all forming part of the daily programme. In addition, fly-camping, visits to local villages and Ngare Ndare Forest trips can be added for an additional cost.
