Borana Safari Lodge

discover Borana Safari Lodge

The grandfather of the present owners of Borana fell in love with the wildness and soul-enriching isolation of this land. In building the lodge, the Dyers took care not to lose this while ensuring that the Lodge offers the ultimate in luxury and comfort. All cottages are entirely secluded and have private views from both bedroom and bathroom of the valley below.

The Lodge is designed to work in harmony with the landscape and is created from local, sustainable building materials. It enjoys an idyllic setting, 17 miles north of the equator and 6,000 feet above sea level, and is free from the malarial mosquito and the nights are cool.

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. Take a guide and walk down to the dam to enjoy a close-up view of elephants swimming!

Food & Drink

Borana takes great pride in the food served. Most of the fresh produce, meat, poultry, vegetables, dairy products, are obtained everyday from the ranch (Borana is self-sufficient in home-grown vegetables and dairy produce). All the breads, pastas and cakes are home-made using home milled flour. Menus vary from the traditional to the exotic but are consistently mouth-watering.

Meals are taken around one large table, which allows for informality and a lively exchange of conversation. Depending on the weather al fresco lunches are often served in the building overlooking the swimming pool and dam. Meals are also available in the privacy of ones room on request. Borana accommodates most diet preferences.
